When my first child had an accident at home, I realised we hadn't childproofed the house as well as we could have. Thankfully, they were fine, but I learned my lesson and began a thorough inspection of my home and garden. I got to work addressing the various hazards we had overlooked, and I started this blog to help other parents think objectively about the hazards in their own homes. I post about a variety of topics, such as pool safety, choosing a safe garden fence, storing medication and cleaning products, window and door locks and kitchen safety for kids. I hope you find my blog useful and informative.
Are you interested in buying a motorhome, but are not sure which one will meet your requirements? Then you should take the time to learn more about the different types that are available. By doing so you can make an educated choice regarding the type of motorhome that you end up with. Here are the most common types of motorhomes that you will encounter:
Micro Vans: a micro van has the advantage of not taking up much space on the road, and that means they are a relatively agile mode of transport, yet they still provide the basic facilities that can be found on motor homes. These basic facilities include a place to cook your food, sleeping facilities for two people and a unit on the roof for extra storage space. They have the appearance of a small van on the outside, so it is only when the inside is examined that you can see it is indeed a genuine motor home.
A-class Motorhomes: an A-class motorhome can be identified by the fact that there is no separation from the front and back of the vehicle. This design means that the driver has full view of what is going on in the living quarters. This is advantages because it does not separate the driver from the rest of the group. Furthermore, A-class motorhomes are one of the more luxurious options on the market. They tend to have good quality features, and kitchen amenities you would expect to find at home.
Coach Converted Motor Homes: these are also known as RV's in America, and provide the most space of the motor home options. They are great if you have a large family, or simply want to enjoy a lot of space once you set up at the camping site. The downside of coach converted motor homes is that they are very bulky to drive, and therefore quite slow. They also consume a lot more fuel per km any other type of motor home.
Motorhomes with Tent Extensions: there are motorhomes out there that can be increased in size once they are setup by collapsing a tent structure. This tent structure is relatively strong and therefore you can rely on it to withstand the tough effects of the weather—this is true in part because the tent structure will be attached to a vehicle that itself will be structurally sound.
