DRIVING A MOTORHOME


All our motorhomes weigh in under 3500KG, so can be driven on a normal car license 🚗


Florence 🥰, the smallest of our fleet, is 6.9 metres long (+1M when using the bike rack) and 3.2 metres high whereas there rest are all nearer to 7.5 meters in length 📏


If you've driven vans and lorries before, you'll find driving our motorhomes a breeze 💨


This short video will give you a few hints and tips on how to master the art of motorhome driving 👌  

🥜 IN A NUTSHELL 🥜

Take your time, take corners slow and wide, and just be mindful of your height, length and tail-swing

We'd also advise familiarising yourself with the excellent 'Motorhomes & Campervans' section

over on the North Coast 500 Website - it's very informative! 🎓

Although you are free to GO Forth! as you please, we would draw your attention to the warnings that the

❌ Bealash Na Ba and B869 Drumbeg Road should be avoided. ❌


These can, and have been explored in motorhomes, however may require you to reverse to the nearest passing place (which may involve reversing round corners!) and one stuck motorhome can cause problems for

locals, the enjoyment of other tourists & the emergency services; not to mention potentially your Security Depost! 💸


We suggest that these roads are left to be explored another time in an open top sports car 🏁

5 Motorhome Tips for Beginners!

Our list of videos we want to make to improve your experience is growing, but when we discovered One Journey Away's 5 Motorhome Tips video - we simply had to ask their permission to share! 🤗


This is a very insightful video and we suggest giving it a watch to familiarise yourself with some things you'll need to be aware of when driving a motorhome 🤓


We also have Setting Off Checklist's in our motorhomes as a reminder 👌

A little more info...

We supply you with a Sat Nav [FREE 😉] which has our motorhome dimensions already stored in it,

so you will only be guided down you routes that you can safely pass 🦺


PLEASE NOTE:

As with all Sat Nav's, common-sense should prevail so keep in mind your surroundings; narrow roads, on-coming traffic, bridge heights, etc. 🌉


Reversing should always be done with a passenger tossed out to guide you! 🔭

Although our motorhomes do have reversing camera's, there may be blind spots and also our insurance does not cover you for damage caused via reversing maneouvres 👀


There can be 2-3 metres of tail-swing also, especially if you have the bike rack in use - so keep in mind that any minor steering adjustment is amplified at the rear 📈 


When you arrive for your hire, you'll get a full 'induction' on your chosen motorhome's features and equipment to be sure that you get the best out of it when you are on your holiday - we're always on the end of the phone if you get stuck and have recently introduced our Whatsapp Techincal Support chat 🤓 


The induction can take the best part of an hour (or longer if required), so please factor that into your itinerary ⏳ 


We will check you are comfortable jumping into the driving seat, but if needed, we are more than happy to nip you round the block and give you a GO Forth! Crash Course [pardon the pun! 🙈] on how to drive any of our motorhomes safely 👌
