What’s The Difference Between Motorhomes & Campervans

What’s The Difference Between Motorhomes & Campervans

This will be the first bridge you’ll need to cross before you begin narrowing down your options.

The difference between motorhomes and campervans has blurred over the years, but the most general rule of thumb is that a motorhome has onboard facilities (like a shower and a toilet).

Of course, there’s a lot more to know, so check out our guide to motorhomes and campervans if you’re curious.

Why Is Lifestyle Important When Choosing A Motorhome

Why Is Lifestyle Important When Choosing A Motorhome?

Your lifestyle will decide what you’ll need when you’re road-tripping across Australia. Knowing whether you’re travelling often, travelling far, or travelling with family, will help you determine a range of things.

Some of these things include:

  • Off-grid requirements
  • Bathroom requirements
  • Storage needs
  • Living space needs
  • Kitchen, fridge, and pantry space
  • Sleeping arrangements
  • Additional features (solar panels, TV, awning)

How Do You Decide What Motorhome Fits Your Needs

How Do You Decide What Motorhome Fits Your Needs?

What are your destinations?

Are you planning on driving to the Outback? Mountains? Or will you spend most of your time in cities or on highways?

How frequently do you plan to travel?

Are you going to travel often? Will you be travelling for a weekend, or for months at a time?

Do you need a shower and toilet on board?

And how often do you plan to use them?

Do you need plenty of space and storage?

Are you the type of traveller who can make do with the basics? Or are you bringing everything you’ll need for a comfortable holiday?

What kind of camper are you?

Do you prefer to free camp in nature, or do you prefer luxury resort-style holiday parks? How quick should it be for you to pack up your motorhome and hit the road?

What are your routines?

Are you spending a lot of time on the road? Are you out exploring or are you relaxing in your motorhome?

How many berths do you need?

Are you travelling alone? With a partner? With family?

What type of bed do you prefer?

Would you prefer a fixed bed that requires no preparation, or would you prefer to reclaim space with dinette conversions?

How are you using the space?

Are you cooking a lot? Will you be having guests over? Are you planning to work remotely?

What are your off-grid requirements?

Do you need solar panels? Grey water and freshwater tanks?

What luggage are you bringing?

Are you someone who likes to ski, surf, or cycle? Do your hobbies require a lot of gear? This will determine the amount of storage you need.
