Prior to our trip around Ireland last summer I’d never set foot on one, let alone driven, cooked and slept in one. It turns out, they’re not just for the retired or Max and Paddy.
The questions my friends have about the experience are the same concerns I had year ago, and I can now dispel them all. No, it wasn’t cramped and we didn’t kill each other, yes, you can be over six foot tall and still sleep comfortably (very comfortably, as it happens), yes the oven is big enough to cook a meal for a family, and no, it wasn’t hard to drive.
Everyone has ideas about how they’d use a motorhome if they hired or bought one. Surfing holidays in Cornwall, a European tour, discovering hidden gems in England are all on the list, but we all agree that it’s the magical freedom of a motorhome that’s biggest draw.
