Why do so many people choose caravanning? Why do campsites, motorhomes and caravans continually mesmerize young and old tourists? If you're wondering about that, get to know the benefits of caravanning - maybe you will also go on a trip of your lifetime.
A small remark to start with. Anyone, who chooses caravanning, can be guided by something else. Not all benefits will be equally important for all those, who love spending time on the road or at a campsite. Well - already here we encounter first differences. For some, the most important is the journey itself, moving from town to town, while others just want to quickly reach the destination to spend time amongst nature, or in a group of friendly people. However, it’s possible to distinguish several basic advantages, which "caravanners" mention most often.
A sense of independence
You can call it as you want – spontaneity, freedom, independence. Most important, however, is that at any time you can take the motorhome, or hook the caravan up to the car and go wherever you want. You can change your plans and nothing would happen if, instead of in Rome, you suddenly find yourself in Saint-Tropez. You are not dependent on hotel reservations, the rigid tour programs, etc.
Caravanning is the perfect option for independent people, for restless spirits, who value freedom over comfort. Though let’s not exaggerate - the modern camping vehicles allow you to combine the hotel’s or house’s convenience with an extraordinary mobility.
If you are not convinced by abstract values, pay attention to specifics. Even if you have a combi or van, you surely won’t fit as much luggage in it as in a caravan or motorhome.
In a camping vehicle you can pack almost anything you might need for the next few weeks. A laptop? No problem! 10 books? Lots of clothes? Favorite gadgets? If you do your best, you can even take a few bikes!
Besides, in contrast to traveling between hotels, you don’t have to constantly unpack and pack again. Even if you spend every day in a different place, all luggage remains in one place.
If you think that spending time amongst nature equals with pretty bad conditions, you are wrong.
In a modern camping vehicle hot water, toilet, shower, fridge and gas stove is a standard. Better equipped models also have an oven, microwave or coffee maker. Besides, you have an access to all those facilities also on the road.
Both on the campsite, as well as on the road, conditions can be way better than in a cheap hotel.
We can’t guarantee that all caravanning enthusiasts are nice and sociable, but we can assure you that a huge percentage of people you meet on the majority of campsites are just that. The fact is that caravanning attracts mostly sociable and helpful people, ready to help you in troubles. Among the "caravanners" you can find many friends.
And it's only a few examples of the whole mass of benefits that can be reduced to one universal statement - if during the holiday trip you desire to have more for less, think about caravanning!
