Keeping Your Motorhome Maintained

However, it's important to make sure you keep your motorhome or caravan maintained and ready for use; if you are thinking of using it for the first time after winter, a thorough check is a good idea. If you need to replace any parts or carry out repairs, try to do so before you actually want to use it; you can easily find hymer parts for sale online or at many local dealerships, as well as parts for other popular makes and models. Don't forget that your motorhome will need an oil change regularly, as well as your car, and you should also check that everything inside your home is working as it should to avoid unpleasant surprises on the road.

Where To Stay When Travelling

Even though you look after your motorhome, problems do occur and some motorhome owners make a point of staying close to a pub or somewhere help is available if needed. Many of the UK's pubs offer rooms to rent and the cost of a room is typically a lot less than a hotel room. Even if you don't need a room for the night, the pub has a phone if you need to make a call for parts or emergency assistance, and it makes a practical place to shelter from the often unpredictable British weather. It may be a generalization, but most pub landlords are willing and happy to help where they can, and generally go the extra mile.

Food, Drink and An Inviting Atmosphere

But even if you don't experience any problems or breakdowns with your caravan or motorhome, parking within walking distance of a good pub appeals to many people anyway. As well as the chance to enjoy good food and drink, it can be a place to relax, meet other travellers or locals and escape from the tight confines of a motorhome, even if it's just for a few hours. If you want a break from cooking, just about every pub serves basic meals or bar snacks, as well as afternoon tea or coffee. And if you are staying in the area for some time, the local pub can be a useful source of information on anything from the weather to sightseeing.
