Winter Motorhome Hire

Lots of people are looking to have a short break away in a motorhome or campervan over the winter months. With people having holidays cancelled, plans being cancelled due to the Covid restrictions, it’s one way to have a holiday and some valuable family time. Some people are put off by the thought of being cold or weather issues, however, the motorhomes if they are used correctly are really toasty warm. We have put some things together that should be a must when considering which campsites to use, these handy tips will allow your trip to be as fuss free as possible.

What to consider when looking for a campsite over winter:

The main thing that you should consider about the pitch in winter is checking that it is hardstanding. The reason for this is that when pitching up on a hardstanding pitch, the ground is much sturdier than on a grass pitch. This will prevent you from becoming stuck in a muddy puddle!

Another really good tip is to check that the site has electric hook up. This is great to have in winter, even though the heating & hot water will work on both gas & electric, it will be used much more over the winter months than in summer. With electric hook up it is a lot more cost effective, this way you can leave the heating & hot water on overnight. If you are going to run off gas only, you should make sure that you have at least one spare bottle in case you run out.

It is important that you know exactly how your motorhome works and if there are dump valves & how to isolate them. Most of the motorhomes or campervans have an automatic frost control valve that will automatically dump any water at low temperatures. This prevents water from freezing in pipes. This is a really good reason to have your heating on low whilst using the electric hook up. This would allow your vehicle to stay at a temperature where the dump valve will not be activated. Spend some time with the representative from easicampers that shows you around the vehicle & ask about trips they may have had in the motorhome, the staff are all very knowledgeable about the vehicles & will have used them at some point to get to know them better.

The larger motorhomes are self-contained and have showers & toilets on board so that you don’t have to nip to the shared facilities on sites, however, due to restrictions, you will find that many of the facilities (showers & toilets) may not be available in the current restrictions. If you plan to hire a VW California, it would be advisable to check the sites you are planning on visiting have facilities open. If they are not available you may want to add on one of the porta potties that can fit easily in the back of the vehicle.

You will also need to make sure that you pack appropriate clothing for your trip. If you are planning on taking a pet with you and having long winter walks, you should consider taking plenty of warm clothing and good dry footwear, also consider what items you will need to take along for your pet, for example blankets or wash items.

There are some really fantastic landscapes around the UK and there are campsites that open all year round so you will have plenty to choose from when hiring your easicamper from us.

Festival Camping in a Motorhome

What  you need to know, about festival camping in a motorhome?

You will have to buy a separate motorhome ticket in addition to your festival tickets.
Everyone staying in your motorhome will require a festival ticket.
In some instances it is allowable to park a car next to the motorhome.
Once settled in your designated  space you will probably be required to remain there until the end of the festival.
You will not have access to an electric hook up but your motorhome rental will run on the leisure battery and gas for all of its amenities (hot water, shower, fridge, cooker, heating, lighting) with the exception of the 240V plug sockets (remember to pack a car phone charger) Turning over the engine each morning will keep the leisure battery topped up throughout your stay. This is important as generators are usually not allowed.

But the best thing of all is, you will get to enjoy the atmosphere of the event,  but still have all your home comforts.

Motorhome Try before you Buy

Have you ever thought about owning your own motor home. Being able to travel the UK and beyond staying in the most romantic and remote parts of the world.

If you’ve never driven a motor home then here in Wigan we advise all potential buyer’s to rent one for a few days or at least a week to give you the idea of what it’s like to own one.

We always suggest a rental of a motorhome before taking the plunge to buy one, these aren’t cheap and cheerful and take a lot of care and attention to maintain and look after.

We have had numerous customers rent from Wigan taking them to Scotland’s Highland’s and Islands to test the water, then after a few hire’s they’ve taken the plunge and purchased a motorhome then gone on to travel Europe in them. 

Quite a popular route is the NC500 this route is a famous road trip round the Northern coast of Scotland you choose if you go East to West or vice- versa. Whichever way you go the views in your motorhome are amazing(so we’ve been told).

Motorhome size is also a good factor for which one to purchase. We hire 2 berth up to 6 berth motor homes there may only be 2 of you but you want space to lounge and watch the day go by if this is the case why not try a 4 berth with extra sofa space and storage for those weeks away.

For more information on renting before you buy contact us here in Wigan on 01942 778899 or visit  www.easicampers.com
