4 years ago, Kathryn Bird quit her job as an air traffic controller to tour Europe in a motorhome. Along with her (slightly bewildered) husband and Mac their cocker spaniel, they've spent most of that time on the road (give or take 2020.) She is passionate about encouraging others to have their own adventures, whether it's a 3-month tour or a quick weekend trip down the road.
The Roaming Radford's
Since 2007, the Radford family have toured the UK, Europe and US. They spend most school holidays and weekends enjoying adventures in their 2016 Swift Kon-Tiki 649. They set off with a rough destination in mind, but enjoy allowing the roads they take and the people they meet along the way to shape their journeys!
The Urban Motorhome
Originally from Essex, Darran, aged 33, has been living full time in his 2005 Fiat Ducato Swift Sundance 590RL since April 2017. As the name suggests he parks urban 99% of the time, streets, industrial estates, car parks etc, very rarely on a campsite!
Life Beyond Bricks
Tash & Jon have been motorhoming since 2014. In March 2019, they moved into their Adria Sonic full time with their 3 cats. Their mission is to discover what the UK has to offer, to find the hidden gems and showcase how beautiful, interesting and rich in history our country is!
With growing numbers of motorhomes now being stolen, Carl from Outsmart the Thief offers practical expert advice on the steps and measures you can take to keep your motorhome safe.
Richard, owner of SV Tech, runs through weight limits to avoid the hefty fines & implications of overloading.
After 30 years as a BBC presenter and reporter, Siobhan Daniels felt burnt out. In 2019, aged sixty, she took early retirement, sold her belongings, bought a motorhome and embarked on her solo trip around Great Britain! Since Siobhan embarked on this journey she has had to face her fears, weather severe storms and of course the pandemic challenges but she cannot emphasise enough how fantastic this experience makes her feel. Fully alive! In control! At one with nature! Join Siobhan for some retirement inspiration…
