A motor van, also known as a campervan, is a vehicle designed such that it can be used for both transportation and sleeping. These can be a great traffic for your tours. It is a relatively economical way to travel. Plus you are free to make your plans and stop where you want to stay without worrying about hotel reservations. Most motor vans are so modern and stylish with beds that are so comfortable that you can easily live in them without booking hotel rooms. This saves your cost.
An enclosed place to live.
A small sink, water pump and water tank, usually capable of holding about 80- 120 litres of water. 80 litres of water can last for a week, but if you intend to wash, you might have to refill the tank after 1 or 2 days. You can also wash your dishes in the van.
Gas cook. While living on uncooked food and sandwiches is an option, cooked food can bring a lot of difference to your journey. There are safety precautions that need to be followed as on rare occasions, the gas may leak and lead to the fire. The burning of gas will produce carbon monoxide which can asphyxiate you. To prevent such situations, ventilate the vehicle before and while using gas. Open the doors and windows to pass out any gas that might be trapped inside.
Electricity. It’s advisable that you use energy efficient devices like LED lights or fluoro, or energy efficient laptop to get more use of the battery. You can also use methods of recharging your battery like generator or panels.
You can cook and store the food in your campervan. Think how much of money you can save by not eating out every night. While you are driving, you can have someone else cooking some delicious food. When it’s ready, you can pull over, enjoy the food with your family, and drive again when you are ready.
After having food, you take a small afternoon nap, which I believe is the biggest benefit of hiring a camper van. As happens in full day tours, you get tired, exhausted and lose the energy of fully enjoying the tour. On the other hand, the afternoon nap can energise you so that you can enjoy the tour with vigour.
You can drive your campervan to places of scenic interest and spend the whole day, and even night, there. It can be beside that gorgeous waterfall or that serene lake or amidst a dense forest. A motor home will launch you to the hearts of nature, keeping you protected.
Price of renting
The cost of renting a motor home will depend on the time of year you are renting, the features and accessories you are opting for and the duration for which you rent. When hiring, try to keep 2 designated drivers for the trip.
