Although there are still several months to the beginning of the caravanning season, many beginners and advanced lovers of independent recreation are already facing a serious dilemma. An investment in a new motorhome or a cheaper alternative in the form of a used vehicle? How about renting a motorhome? We present the advantages and disadvantages as well as the costs of the available solutions.

A rental for a good start

The group of motorhome enthusiasts is growing every year. No wonder - traveling at home on wheels is associated with freedom and tranquility, which we are increasingly looking for in a busy life. A good solution for beginner caravanners and for people who plan single trips in the season may be renting a motorhome in the rental shop. On the one hand, it will allow us to test ourselves in a new situation and make a decision to continue traveling with a motorhome in the future. On the other hand, it will help to avoid difficulties related to wintering the car, its servicing or third party liability insurance. The advantage of renting a motorhome is the relatively low price, especially compared to buying your own car, even a used one. However, it should be taken into account that rental costs vary depending on the season. For example, for renting a 4-person Bavaria I740G Allure or Pilote G740GJ Emotion at a CarGO rental! in the low season we will pay PLN 500. High, that is from May to the end of September - PLN 850 per night.

Second hand motorhome

Caravanning enthusiasts who want to invest in their own vehicle, but do not have a sufficient budget, willingly decide to buy a used motorhome. When choosing a second-hand motorhome, it's best to choose a model from one of the well-known and proven brands, such as Pilote, Bavaria or the luxurious LeVoyageur. This will make it easier for us to find spare parts for a vehicle that is prone to more frequent breakdowns. The prices of used motorhomes range from PLN 20,000 to PLN 30,000, but the average transaction price is around PLN 100,000. The purchase of a used camper should be preceded by a test drive and a general review. The documents of the car and its careful examination inside will also tell us a lot about the condition of the vehicle. This will protect us from a misguided investment that may result in costly repairs.

An investment for years

The purchase of a new motorhome is a real expense, comparable to the prices of mid-range cars or small apartments. For the greatest caravanning enthusiasts, this solution gives unlimited travel opportunities without the need to visit the rental company or frequent repairs of the vehicle used for years. Usually, you have to pay over PLN 200,000 for the full independence and comfort of driving a new vehicle.

We are more and more willing to leave our homes, embarking on longer and shorter holidays… in houses on wheels! Before the trip, however, it is worth taking care of the appropriate equipment of the camper or caravan , which will provide us with high comfort both on the road and during a stop at the campsite. What accessories for a motorhome to invest in to fully enjoy the charms of a mobile home? We advise!. Traveling with a camper or with a trailer is a guarantee of freedom and independence. Also related to the preparation of meals. The basic element of mobile kitchens are portable refrigerators . Leading manufacturers, including Dometic, offer motorhome users cooling devices of various capacities - from 10 to even 40 liters. The small models can be mounted between the driver and passenger seats, and can also be transported by hand to the camping site. Larger refrigerators, in addition to bottles with cooling drinks on hot days or small snacks, will also accommodate perishable food products. However, portable coolers are different from household coolers. Some of them have as many as 3 power sources - voltage 12 V, voltage 230 V when parked and gas. It is worth remembering that such a refrigerator should always be connected to only one of them. A gas grill can also be a good solution. Vegetable skewers? Baked Potatoes? Or maybe a juicy pork neck? It is possible! The set will be complemented by cutlery and dishes made of durable melamine.
