Club offers first time advice for potential campers, caravanners and motorhomers
Starting from today – 31 August – the Caravan and Motorhome Club will be hosting a week of advice on its social media channels for anyone thinking about getting into motorhomes, campervans, caravans or tents this year. This follows on from the success of two previous virtual events, the Big Little Tent Festival and the Big Little TeaTime Festival.
To get involved simply follow and like @CandMClub on various social media platforms. There will be a week of advice, tips and the opportunity to ask questions. There will also be a decision tree to decide what vehicle or style will suit you, as well as inspiration videos, a live quixz, advice on campsites and more.
Harvey Alexander, Director of Marketing and Membership at the Caravan and Motorhome Club, says: “The Caravan and Motorhome Club is a huge community of friendly and helpful people, from fellow members to campsite and head office staff. I know when I’ve been on a campsite and needed help, fellow members are always quick to roll-up their sleeves and pitch-in or offer tips and hints. We all share a common passion for being in the great outdoors and enjoying time away in our leisure vehicles."
The club asked its members to complete the following sentence - 'When I first started touring I wish someone had told me'... - and some of the highlights were:
- "Just a couple of love-struck teenagers starting out together with a tiny tourer, no money and no idea of the incredible worldwide van travels our future together would bring."
- “How much we would love it! And how helpful other caravanners are when you’ve bought your first awning off eBay with no instructions and everyone around you ends up helping to put it up.”
- “There’s a switch just inside the doors that needs to be on before any 12V light will work.”
- “Don't go into a showroom out of interest or a small item and come away with a caravan. Oh go on then, do.”
