There are, thankfully, many different types of personalities which come together to become the human race, and whilst some individuals love nothing more than to be constantly surrounded by hordes of people and feel a pathological need to be the center of attention, others simply do not.
If you find yourself to be firmly placed in the latter category, then a solo trip in your own motorhome every time you feel overwhelmed, you are craving peace and privacy, or simply when your wanderlust is calling, could be the best move you ever decide to make.
With this in mind, here is everything you need to know about solo trips in a motorhome.
Embrace the Motorhome Community
Now, even though your first motorhome experience is going to be you, and only you, it still makes sense, if only from a curiosity standpoint, to join at least one online community whose members are all avid motorhome vacationers.
This way, not only will you learn valuable tips and tricks for initially looking for the right make, model, size, and shape of motorhome to best suit your needs and desires, but should you be interested in meeting up with like-minded travelers, you will have a ready-made support network ready and waiting.
Choose the Best Motorhome for You
Every traveler’s needs are entirely different, and as a solo vacationer, you have the luxury of being able to choose exactly the style, shape, and model of motorhome to best suit you and your purposes.
There are four main styles of motorhome: conversion vans, compact motorhomes, pop-top campers, and class-B motorhomes. As you are planning on the ultimate adventure into the natural environment on your own and are looking forward to a weekend (or longer) of peace, quiet, and soul-searching, you will benefit from being able to consider caravans with less storage and a smaller living area, meaning you can get the best deal to suit you.
Conversion vans are an exceedingly popular choice for solo travelers and offer the freedom to customize, change, and rebuild each and every element; or indeed (should you invest in a brand-new conversion van) start from scratch with a blank canvas.
Compact motorhomes are great for saving on gas and are looking for a reliable, sturdy and safe driving experience, pop-top campers offer additional storage and living space with a convertible roof and class B motorhomes are the choice for solo vacationers who want to travel in the lap of luxury.
Your Safety is Your Priority
Once you have decided on the right style of motorhome for you and have kitted it out in the colors and core design you feel best reflects your personality, you then need to turn your attention to your health and safety as a solo traveler.
Make sure you have booked onto a reputable and well-known caravan site and plan the route carefully and in as much detail as possible; always let at least one of your loved ones know where you currently are and where you will be traveling to, and take the time to familiarize yourself with the basic mechanics of your new motorhome.
