You know that awkward feeling you get when you’re trying something new? The one where you look like a total wally as you try to get to grips with things you’re not familiar with? Well that was my partner, Charlie, and I as the wonderful Bob and Cristina from Bailey showed us around our Autograph 74-4 motorhome – home for the next ten days.
Our 16 month-old daughter Willow was also in tow. Hungry, tired and intent on pushing the hazard button as Bob and Cristina were patiently trying to explain how a motorhome works. Clearly well versed with toddler meltdowns the team handed Willow a Bailey Bear. It kept her quiet for all of five minutes.
“Oh man, this is going to be interesting,” I thought as the keys were handed over and we began our drive up to Northumberland.
“You were listening to the bit about the chemical loo, right?” I asked as we pulled away from Bailey…
“Um, I think so?” came Charlie’s tentative response.
Thankfully, like most things in life, practice makes perfect and we honestly had one of the best trips we have ever done. However, for anyone considering motorhome travel with a toddler these would be our top tips.
