The Smith’s experience of hiring then buying a motorhome from us

The Smith family from the USA recently hired one of the family motorhomes in our “Prestige” rental range and toured France and neighbouring countries over the 2017/2018 winter months. They were having so much fun, they decided to buy the vehicle and continue their tour of Europe!

The Smiths initial hire took them to France, Holland and Belgium and they spent Christmas in Germany exploring their family roots as well as taking in a few Christmas markets.

Before their trip, they had planned to spend the first part of it in a motorhome then head for villa rentals in Spain and Portugal but they found motorhome travel such a convenient way to travel and accommodate the family that they decided to buy their rental vehicle.  They are even home-schooling the children online as they travel and using the dining area of the motorhome as a classroom.  This truly would not have been possible in the pre-internet era!

The Smiths returned to our depot last week to complete their purchase paperwork and also have some on-board propane tanks fitted to ensure they can top up their gas supply with ease no matter where they travel to.

Whilst they were here, we quizzed them about their trip and you can read their responses in this blog on our rental website where they talk about how motorhome travel differs between Europe and the US, why they decided to buy their rental motorhome and their opinion of a winter trip.

The Smiths hired and then bought a six-berth Weinsberg 600 DKG (referred to on our hire website as the “Euro-Voyager Prestige”).  This beautifully finished, family motorhome from top German manufacturer Knaus is ideal for longer trips at any time of the year and we currently have others for sale.

Take a look at the Weinsberg 600 DKG and all the other motorhomes we currently have for sale.

Hand your notice in at work, rent your house out, grab the family and head off on a grand European family adventure, home-schooling the kids as you go.  What are you waiting for?  If the Smiths can do it you can too!
