Motorhomers like to have some extra wheels on their touring trips so they can explore their surroundings.
Last month, we asked owners if they take extra transport on their motorhome holidays and a huge 88 percent of voters said they did.
Two wheels was by far the most popular form of extra transport, with 71 percent choosing this option – 39 percent of voters told us they took a bike or two and a further 32 percent said they take electric bikes – giving motorhomers the freedom to explore further afield.
With options for electric, folding and lightweight bikes, the ability to venture out – and keep fit – are limitless when on your motorhome holidays.
Towing a car or van on the back of their motorhome was favoured by 10 percent of voters.
And taking a motorbike or scooter on holiday was voted for by just 7 percent of motorhome owners polled.
With a huge majority opting for extra transport, just nine percent said they didn’t take anything else, commenting that they like to walk, use public transport or even hire a small car!
“When we first started motorhoming (now in our 16th year) we took bikes for the first 10 years. Now we just walk to places, use public transport or taxis in the area of the site. It’s just great to get out and about physically visiting and exploring the great outdoors. We can’t see the point of towing a car or a trailer unless for hobby or commercial reasons. If you need the use of a car buy a caravan as in most cases they are cheaper and have better layouts, especially if you feel the need for fixed bed.”
