In our recent community poll we asked “Are you going touring this winter or putting the ‘van into hibernation?”, and opinion has certainly been divided.
You voted almost equally between the three options of “Using regularly throughout winter” (35%), “Not using until spring” (33%) and “May use now and again” (32%).
But with 35% of the vote it seems using your caravan or motorhome throughout winter just nosed ahead and is the most popular choice amongst our readers.
Of course with the quality of caravan and motorhome insulation and water integrity improving year on year, combined with the more efficient and effective heating systems now available, there is no reason why you can’t enjoy year round touring in the UK.
We’ve written about winter motorhoming before, so if you would like to read more visit our winter wanderings article, there’s lots of advice that will be useful for caravanners too. Alternatively, you can read here how to prepare your caravan for winter storage, and here how to prepare your motorhome for winter.
