Let there be light

A recent survey by the Caravan Guard asked motorhome owners if they had modified their vehicle in any way. Some 78% responded that they had with the top modification being the addition of solar panels. This was far and away the most popular answer with adding a cruise control system lagging well behind. Some 8 per cent of people had managed to improve the performance of their motorhome with engine mapping or chipping while a modest 4% had simply put better tyres on. You can see all the results in the pie chart.

The survey asked about specific mods but canvassed for other ideas and here lots of people responded that they had added a second leisure battery, LED lighting, water purifiers and sockets for sat navs.
