The Difference Between Campervan and Motorhome Hire
Usually both terms are used to refer to any camping vehicle that has a motor; meaning, the vehicle is self-drive and doesn’t have to be towed. The terms are often used interchangeably, especially with those who have yet to enjoy campervans for hire. You’ll find the word “motorhome” is frequently used to describe an entire class of motorised recreational vehicles including campervans, caravans and campers, whereas “campervan” is used to describe a van that has kitchen and one or more beds.
If you want to hire a campervan or motorhome, pay attention to the different sizes and different amenities. Carefully check out the person and storage capacity and any other special features like the weight and height of the vehicle and the power of the engine.
Motorhome hire is used to refer to most travel vehicles that have an engine. The term is typically synonymous with the American “RV” (recreational vehicle), as it does literally mean a vehicle intended for recreation. RVs, however, as usually larger than motorhomes.
There are several amenities typically present in most, if not all, motorhomes that help you to recognise the vehicle and differentiate it from campervans for hire. These include:
Motorhomes are particularly large and can usually house anywhere from two to eight occupants, depending on the model. Most of them will feature a separate cab area with a driver and passenger seat. There is also usually a sofa in the rear that will not often have safety belts. Heights and lengths vary a lot with models, ranging anywhere from less than 10 metres in length to anything above 12 metres.
If you are considering motorhome hire, most do come with an on-board bathroom, working toilet and shower, and will need to be connected to water. Even the on-board electric system can usually be plugged in at campgrounds. As a result, holiday-makers can look forward to all the comforts of home without having to save up for a hotel or cottage.
Typical beds in a motorhome can sleep two to eight people. The beds tend to range from fold-out sofas to bunk beds and lounges throughout the vehicle. Before deciding on campervan hire in Worcester, be sure to check the number of available beds in your desired vehicle before confirming your booking. Bunk beds tend to be the most common, as are the fold-out beds. Many motorhomes also feature a table area that you can fold down to create a bed. Sleeping accommodation is meant to make the most of the available space so anyone in the motorhome has ample room when not sleeping.
Just about every motorhome has a kitchen area that will be equipped with a hob, grill, sink, and a few cabinets so you can store food and other items. The hob may be propane, electric or natural gas, although some forms of gas that can be stored in portable tanks seem to be the most common. This means you can effortlessly use the hob while not having to be connected to electricity.
A campervan is very often considered to be a model of motorhome, but it is usually a little smaller and less luxurious, and many are not equipped with a bathroom. They are a lot more similar to caravans as they are simply a van with sleeping and cooking amenities. Campervans for hire tend to be a lot smaller and more affordable than a motorhome and can also be easier to drive. Common campervan amenities include:
Sleeping and Cooking Amenities
Usually a campervan will only include basic amenities, such as a sink and a hob and may or even may not be equipped with an oven. As for sleeping arrangements, there is usually abed situated in the back of the RV or fold-out sofa beds. Sofa beds are particularly popular in campervans for hire as they allow for the most utilisation of space. However, these are not always present as many people simply use the bed as a seat without needing to fold it out. A small amount of storage space is typically available and the cabin is usually part of the van and not separate. Sometimes there may be a divider.
Campervan sizes can vary greatly, but most are a little larger than a typical van. Variations range from traditional box-shaped vans with higher roofs to those that look something like a vintage caravan. Most of these vans will accommodate two to four people.
