Motorhomes VsCampervans

Motorhomes Vs Campervans

The term motorhome and campervan is often used interchangeably, but there are differences.

The most notable being the size, features and the amount of home comforts found on board.

Let’s delve a little deeper…

Beds

Motorhomes can have space to sleep 2-8 people. Overcab beds, fixed beds, drop down beds, bunk beds, king sized beds, dinette conversions, there really is an abundance of options with a motorhome.

In stark contrast to the pull down seat of a campervan.

Size

Usually wider and longer, motorhomes can house a lot more onboard features, but their increased size can make them difficult to drive and park.

Small and nimble, campervans can be taken anywhere and you’ll never face any parking issues.

Facilities

For all the incredible space saving amenities a campervan can offer it can never fully match the comfort and furnishings of a motorhome.

You also don’t have the added benefit of everything being immediately available without the need to pack something else away first.

Layouts

The size of a motorhome lends itself to a plethora of layout options. Do you want a relaxing lounge area, or a fixed bed, or is plentiful storage your priority?

With campervans your choices lie elsewhere, such as do you want a vintage VW camper or a newer van with an elevating roof conversion?

Bathroom

Possibly the most obvious difference is that most campervans are not equipped with a full bathroom, and if they are, it will typically only be a toilet that is included.

Most motorhomes will include an on-board bathroom that features a shower, hand basin, and fully functioning toilet.

Driving Licences

Being more similar in size to a regular van you will only need a standard B category driving licence to drive a campervan.

Motorhomes come in such an array of sizes, and carry so many features, that the larger ones can go over the 3500kg weight limit, meaning a C1 category licence would be required.

Every vehicle on our hire fleet requires only the standard B licence.
