We believe that getting the right layout is the key to enjoying your motorhome. Our displays at the Nottingham and Huddersfield branches are arranged by layout and body style so you can compare similar models from different makes, side by side.
Things to consider when choosing your perfect motorhome:
There are 4 core motorhome body styles, each offering different living space solutions.
These popular motorhomes have a streamlined roofline without a bed over the cab. Suitable for a wide variety of holidays, Low Profile motorhomes usually have at least one fixed double or two single beds.
These small motorhomes are narrower and shorter, superb for short breaks, day trips, or even daily transport!
Easily identifiable by having a pod over the cab with a double bed, family motorhomes come in a variety of layouts, sometimes with bunks for children and external storage.
Setting the standard for luxury touring, designed with a large fully integrated cab, usually with a drop-down double bed above. Ideal for comfort during extended trips away.
It might sound obvious, but you should check your seatbelt requirements. Berths do not always equal belts.
How many people would you want it to sleep?
How many people would you want to travel in your ideal motorhome?
Will you be touring primarily in the UK or Europe? Popular destinations can usually accommodate larger motorhomes; smaller vehicles are better when off the beaten track.
A bed made up from a seat can be great for short breaks, however, layouts with fixed bed(s) could work better for longer holidays and offer excellent storage. Sleeping... is generally the thing that you do most in a motorhome, so you must be able to do both comfortably.
There are many layout variations, however, these are the most popular.
A double bed may be along the side or across the rear of the motorhome, sometimes over an external 'garage' store, at other times at a lower level with a washroom behind, or even dropping from the roof. Comfortable, convenient and popular, especially for longer trips.
Generally two (twin) single fixed beds, along the sides of the rear of the motorhome, sometimes with the option of making a double bed as well. Comfortable, convenient and popular, especially for longer trips.
Another fixed bed design, this time with access from both sides. An island bed may be mounted longitudinally or across the motorhome and usually has a large storage area underneath.
A large seating area at the rear of the motorhome, great for relaxing and watching the world go by - a favourite British layout. Usually less external storage available.
Popular layout for motorhomes under 6.5 metres, allowing for generous seating space in a relatively short motorhome.
Often found in pairs on Family Coachbuilt models, bunk layouts work particularly well with older children and often convert into additional storage when not in use..
