Motorhomers and caravanners enjoy 'staycations' during lockdown

Motorhome and caravan insurance specialist, Caravan Guard, has asked its customers to share their pictures of their own drivecation – a break in their motorhome or caravan on their driveway at home. 

“Motorhoming and caravanning have taken on a new meaning during the coronavirus lockdown,” explained a spokesperson. “As ’vanners are unable to tour the country, many have pitched up on their driveways, making their leisure vehicles into temporary classrooms for home schooling, home offices, games’ rooms, storage space for household supplies or as a makeshift dining room for all the family to retreat to.”

Emyr Jones, of south Wales has been using his Bürstner motorhome as a swish home office while the Janaways, who are normally on their travels touring the UK and Europe in their Bailey Autograph motorhome, enjoyed the sun in “Costa Del Drive” in Kent!

Lorisa Talbot of Chalfont St Giles set up her Coachman Vision caravan as a temporary class-room, switching out caravan accessories for books, files, games and teaching aids on the locker doors. The two dining tables in the five-berth caravan have also been transformed into makeshift desks.

Bailey caravanner, Jimmy Butler and his caravan-mad young family, from Daventry have enjoyed a night’s stay in their caravan as well as cooking, baking, sewing and reading as they plan their next “wobble box adventure”.
