Some say that the original motorhome was the first vehicle packed and piled up with belongings that made the trip from the Dust Bowl in the Midwestern United States to California during the lean years of the 20th century. People abandoned their farms and homes, packed up and crossed the country, often sleeping in or under their vehicles along the way.

But that story may have a challenger in the waggons people once carried their entire lives in. While they were not motorised in the modern sense of the word, they were carried forward by horsepower, and more importantly, provided both vehicles and homes for the occupants. That scenario happened around the world.

A Real Motorhome

While the above examples have some connection to the modern version, history shows that the motorhome concept was truly introduced by the Pierce-Arrow company more than 100 years ago. The company built a wheeled, carriage-like conveyance that was pulled by a car. What made this product stand out was the space provided for cargo, and the fact that this model had a toilet.

Of course, ingenuity and desire to create brought some interesting individuals into the industry. These imaginative people built the foundation for what is now a worldwide industry. The quality of motorhomes has improved dramatically in recent decades. The amenities included are enough to satisfy the most discerning buyer. Even those who have not yet made the decision to own their own vehicle may choose to hire a motorhome for their special holiday.

If you are considering getting in touch with a company that offers motorhome hire, do a bit of research first and read testimonials and reviews. This will be a good indication of how high on the priority list 'customer service' will be.

Find a top-flight provider that will work with you to provide the correct vehicle for your needs. After all, the idea of a holiday is to be able to relax and enjoy the scenery. The motorhome you select should be large enough to accommodate your group, but it should not be so large that you are uncomfortable driving it on the open road.

Yes, You Can

Many people go to a motorhome company with grand visions of the luxurious vehicle they want and find that they can get exactly that, or quite close, without paying an exorbitant price. Leading suppliers in this industry take pride in the mechanical soundness of the vehicles they offer for hire. In addition, the trained and experienced staff do their utmost to ensure that the amenities provide what is promised.

Most importantly, these vehicle providers want to talk with you about your trip, gathering enough information to allow them to recommend a motorhome that will be comfortable, safe, and enjoyable. They will gladly tell you that their vehicles remain in the fleet for about three years, a key element in the reliability of the motorhomes. So, talk with an experienced professional and relax. Enjoy your holiday.
