In this world of autocaravanismo many experienced in this practice share in forums, blogs, social networks, pages and even on YouTube, their experiences, giving us an idea of ​​the routes we can take. Here we share with you two articles of tours that you can do.

.

  1. Legal limits of speed:

.

Keep a speed of 100 to 110 kilometers / hour. Be especially careful, with sharp curves and speed reducers. Maneuvering the steering wheel, while maintaining an inadequate speed can cause the vehicle to roll, unstable or rebound.

.

  1. Various vehicle options:

.

When you rent a motorhome in our company, you can choose between different models of rollers. Each one offers different characteristics that adapt to the needs of different types of clients. We have motorhomes type capuchinas and profiled, modern and safe, manufactured by the companies Rimor and Benimar.

.

  1. Use an energy inverter:

.

You can request this device in our rental center, if we have availability we will deliver it to you. Its function is to use the energy of the vehicle’s battery, to convert it into a constant current of 12 v, which allows you to charge your cell phone, laptop or digital camera.

.

Discharge stations

.

.

  1. You must be aware of the dimensions of the vehicle:

.

At all times you should be aware that the width and length of the rolling, is not a factor that causes damage to the outside of the caravan, when crossing, passing near a vehicle or traffic signals. Also, you must pay attention to the height, especially in capuchin models, because some parking, may have barriers at the entrance, with a lower height than a rolling, like bridges, arches, tunnels etc. Lean on the co-pilot, who is advised to get off the vehicle to give instructions to the driver.

.

  1. Service area, emptying station or dump station:

.

Whatever you want to call, use these stations when you find themyou can identify them by a signal from a motorhome with an arrow pointing down. In them you can empty the containers of the motorhome and fill the container with drinking water. Some car parks have these types of areas enabled in their land.

.

.

.

  1. Empty the wastewater tank:

.

Empty this container at least every 3 days, even if it is not full, so that the toilet does not produce a bad smell. For this task we recommend you use gloves of the same that you use when washing the bathroom in your home, you must pour the contents of this deposit into the sewage drain of a dump station or dump station, in this way you will not be breaking any rule.

.

  1. Empty gray water content:

.

This action is simpler because you can pour the contents of this deposit into areas suitable for motorhomes and any other concrete area that has a drain grid, preferably that this surface is a little inclined so that the emptying can be complete. It is advisable to do this emptying frequently to avoid the proliferation of bacteria.

.

  1. With respect to the toilet:

.

  • We recommend not to throw toilet paper in the toilet, or at least not in amounts that can generate complications when wanting to empty the tank.

.

  • Our company does not forbid it, but we recommend using the caravan toilet only to make minor waters (urinate) and take advantage of the bathrooms offered by the campsites and gas stations to do the rest of the needs. In this way it will be much easier to empty the wastewater tank.

.

  1. Do not drink water directly from the tap:

.

Although the tank is filled with drinking water, we do not recommend consuming it, since the container in which it is stored tends to give the water a plastic flavor, which is not pleasant. The best thing you can do is fill plastic bottles with drinking water and drink them whenever you want and leave the water in the caravan for uses such as washing your hands, showering and using the sink.

.

Avoid accidents

.

.

  1. You can disguise the sewage tank:

.

If you have to walk several meters from where you parked the motor home, to the area enabled to pour the contents of the black water tank.Although you do not have to, if it bothers you to have to walk among the people, taking this container in your hand, you could choose to disguise it.

What you should do is take a sports bag the size of the container and remove one of the sides of the bag with a pair of scissors, in such a way that it works as a cover for the deposit, also make a cut so that the handle extends and ready. People will think that you carry a suitcase or bag with wheels.

.

  1. At bedtime:

.

You can choose between a parking lot or a parking lot. Locating some of these is not a big problem, if you use the technology of the tools mentioned above. We particularly recommend sleeping in a private parking lot, because there is more security and usually offer more and better services. But you are free to choose a different option such as sleeping in a public parking lot or in a parking lot in the city; In any of these cases what we advise is:

.

  • Ensure that the area is not very removed from populated areas.

.

  • Try to locate other motor homes to park near them and create a more familiar environment.

.

  • Do not sleep next to trash containers, because in addition to the annoying smell, it is likely that the trucks that deal with the toilet, get to empty them at night, causing discomfort with noise.

.

.

.

  1. Foods you can take:

.

You can take all the food you want and need, except those that are very sensitive to heat, since the refrigerator of a motorhome is not as powerful as a house and is not so big, so, we recommend:

.

  • Take into account the size of the refrigerator and based on that plan how much food to carry.

.

  • Carry a portable camping fridge to keep beverages and thus free space from the refrigerator.

.

  • Foods such as meats and sausages are best bought in the markets of the area and cooked on the same day.

.

  1. Make the most of the family atmosphere:

.

Playing board games, working as a team for tasks such as cooking, installing awnings, keeping the vehicle clean and doing all kinds of fun activities in the area as a group are experiences that only a motorhome trip can provide. Make the most of them!

.

  1. You must be careful when handling certain elements:

.

In our center we will inform you how to use each accessory and element of the vehicle. Some of them have their trick to work, such as windows ; which have closures that if handled incorrectly can be broken.
