Marvellous motorhome holiday hotspots

Brits are increasingly recognising the beauty of holidaying on home soil – as we witness the rise of the staycation. However, motorhome and campervan owners are way ahead of the game. They’ve been doing it for years. It’s an opportunity to take your ‘home’ on wheels to any location you wish – and the beauty of it? You aren’t squashed into a small tent with the rest of your family, and if it rains…it doesn’t matter because you have a roof over your head.

Whilst the UK is home to some beautiful spots, the beauty of being a motorhome owner is that you aren’t limited to camp sites in the UK. You can enjoy the open road and take your wheels all over the world – and with the latest VW Trailer Assist, it’s never been easier. Manoeuvring with a trailer no longer has to be a test of your patience. Instead, allow the Trailer Assist system to do the work for you. As long as you set the system up by selecting reverse gear, press the parking aid button and use the mirror adjustment switch to set the direction in which the trailer should be steered – your car will now steer automatically while you just need to take care of changing gear, accelerating and braking. It’s as simple as that.
With so much choice both home and abroad, it can be difficult to choose the best places to visit with your home on wheels. Just as motorhomes range from basic campervans and trailers to those RVs that are so fancy they give us weep-inducing envy, so do motorhome campsites – from basic wild camping sites and family holiday parks to swish sites with pools or hot tubs, and sites settled into or next to forests, mountains, beaches and lakes. VW dealership, Vindis explore what’s available:
