What Type of Motorhome Should I Hire?

Before I Hire a Motorhome - What are the Types of Motorhome Out There?

At the current time, it is estimated that there is over 90 motorhomes manufacturers in the United Kingdom.

These tend to be categorised as follows:

  1. Panel van conversions. These smaller motorhomes tend to be based upon your typical commercial metal-panelled van.
  2. Coachbuilt mororhomes. This is when the motorhome manufacturer takes the basic cab and chassis from a commercial vehicle manufacturer, and then customises with the motorhome body to the rear of the vehicle.
  3. A-class. not unlike the previously mentioned coachbuilt motorhomes, the motorhome manufacturer takes the chassis from a commercial vehicle, and fits a new cutomised cab and body.
  4. Demountables / fifth wheels. Not common in the United Kingdom and tend to be of American design.
  5. RV or Recreational Vehicles tend to be imports from the USA.
