Motorhome rental: tips for driving them

Are you considering renting a motorhome for your next vacation? It is a fantastic decision that will allow you to live extraordinary sensations and adventures. At Adventure Campers everything is included. Next, we show you the keys to driving a motorhome.

How to drive a motorhome

There is a prior issue that you must keep in mind: if your motorhome weighs more than 3,500 kg or includes more than 9 seats, you need to have the B96 or B+E license. Otherwise, you will have no problem using your usual B card.

The speed limits established for them are:

  • Motorways and highways: 120 km / h.
  • Secondary roads (that is, with more than one lane in each direction and a minimum shoulder of 1.5 m): 90 km / h.
  • Rest of secondary roads: 80 km / h.

10 valuable tips for driving a motorhome

If you follow these suggestions, everything will go better when dealing with these vehicles:

  1. Choose the ideal motorhome for your circumstances: passengers, route, duration of the route, belongings, budget…
  2. Practice with it before starting the itinerary.
  3. Check, as in any vehicle, its general condition, tire pressure, fluid level, etc., before leaving.
  4. Take out travel insurance.
  5. Make sure you have mirrors that protrude as much as possible, but not more than 20 cm.
  6. Drive smoothly, without harsh acceleration or braking. In this sense, be aware that you do not drive a car or a saloon, as in your day to day.
  7. Keep all interior items secure and stowed while you drive.
  8. In any case, do not consume alcohol or drugs.
  9. Avoid overtaking as much as possible.
  10. Maintain a stable speed, neither too fast nor too slow. In case of strong wind, stop the motorhome until it stops.
