Soon you'll be living the dream... touring in style and comfort, the envy of all your friends!
Here's our guide to taking that all-important test drive and choosing the right floorplan. It also covers what to look for when you're buying a motorhome.
The good news is that used campervans and motorhomes tend to hold their value. If you buy a popular one, the chances are that you'll be able to sell it on, or trade up, in a few years' time without suffering much depreciation in value! (Some people have even made a profit...)
Yes, motorhomes are popular! They're your passport to the freedom of the open road.The world's your oyster when you can take your time, knowing you have all you need on board. If the weather turns bad, just point the ’van's nose in another direction and follow the sun!
Check out our reviews on this website, and also see our list of Back issues - we test and review motorhomes of all shapes and sizes every issue, so we may well have reviewed the exact ’van you're considering buying. You can step inside some motorhomes with us on our Practical Motorhome YouTube channel as well.
In many issues of Practical Motorhome we have a Buyer's Guide, with advice on choosing the right layout, plus guide prices to new motorhomes on the market in Britain right now.
In the magazine we also regularly list our current favourite Top 100 ’vans, by category: van conversions, low-profiles, overcab coachbuilts and A-class motorhomes.
