Can I drive the motorhomes?
Because the motorhomes are between 3.5-6 tonnes you will need a C1 licence or pre-1997 driving licence and you will need to take out appropriate insurance and we will need to see a copy. You can use your current car insurance company, or any other suitable insurer. If you need a recommendation, we recommend Adrian Flux. If you don't want to drive we will meet you at the campsite of your choice within 30 miles of Chichester and the motorhome will be all set up with table and chairs.
What is the motorhome kitted out with?
All our motorhomes are equipped to a very high standard. All come with heating, hot water, shower and toilet, TV, fully equipped kitchen with all cooking utensils, bedding and towels. All outside tables and chairs . No extras charges. just turn up with your clothes and food (although for the first night, be assured we provide the basics so you can definitely get your cuppa brewed without hitting the shops). If you require anything else, please do not hesitate to ask.
What is the sleeping layout?
There is space for two adults in the double bed and a further space for one adult or two children depending on which motorhome you choose. If you are taking very small children we advise caution as there are no side railings on the beds.
What induction do you offer/are the motorhomes complicated to use?
When we meet you at the campsite we will show you how everything works.
What do I need to bring?

Do I need to use campsites with electric hook-up?
