You will obviously know that there are so many different models, engine sizes and makes of motorhomes available on the market. For those of you who are new to the motorhome scene, then the following questions and tips will hopefully provide you with some useful help.

Before you buy a motorhome, you need to ask a few of these questions:

1. Should I buy a second hand motorhome, or a new model?

2. What size one should I look into?

3. What accessories should I get for it? Or what accessories do I need?

4. Is there a best time of year to go out and purchase one?

5. What kind of layout do I need, or would I like?

6. What kind of Comfort Insurance would I need to get?

7. Does it take much time to get set up with a motorhome?

You need to sit down prior to buying a motorhome and think about exactly what you want. A good tip is to write down everything that you think you need for the motorhome, and then on the other side of the page, write down the things that are needed out of necessity!

Find out from dealers if they will let you have a trial period with the motorhome before you sign on the dotted line. This will give you a chance to see if it really does suit your needs.

If you are thinking of buying a second hand model, then you need to do some checks first to make sure there is no corrosion or any other damage that could cause big problems for you down the line.

Another useful idea is to head to some trade shows nearby and meet the dealers face to face. You will be able to ask them as many questions have you can . You will also be able to physically see and walk into the motorhome itself.

Whatever you decide to do, make sure that you are 100% happy with your choice. Have a long think about it after you’ve made your final decision. Don’t rush out and buy it straightaway. Give it time to sink in. This will also allow you additional time to make sure that it’s the right decision for you.

Buying a motorhome should be great fun, so go out there and enjoy the experience.
