Motorhome & Campervan Touring in UK & Europe
If you are planning a long European tour then a good comfortable and reliable vehicle is essential. Select First Motorhomes have been offering used campervans for sale in the UK for over 12 years. Our Campervan Sales and Buy Back scheme has been running for over 7 years, so we know what customers require. We always have a good range of campervans for sale, motorhomes and caravans; from small 2 berth campers, to larger A Class or coachbuilt 6 berth vehicles.
The motorhomes and campers are likely to be diesel-powered with a manual gearbox. Automatic gearbox versions are very rare in Europe. Bigger vehicles up to 3500Kgs are likely to be turbo-diesel engines with power steering and right hand drive.
As with all reputable campervan dealers, all of our motor homes and camper vans are well serviced. We always change cambelts well before the due dates. We try to make sure you will have a trouble-free tour, the vehicle will have a valid MOT test (ministry of transport test) all appliances will be serviced, and checked for efficient working and safety, and the motorhome will be cleaned with a detail valet before your collection. All of our motorhomes are quality well known European makes, no American RV’s (difficult to insure) and no cheap aftermarket conversions (almost impossible to insure), and remember, we are happy to buy it back from you so we make no compromises on quality.
If the vehicle is going to be your home for the next few weeks or months, it is advisable to go for as large a vehicle as you feel confident to drive, however some customers are happy to compromise space for something smaller, to access the more rural European locations. More recently fixed bed motorhomes and caravans have become popular, it can become quite tedious converting dining or lounge areas into beds every night. If you are travelling with a family, remember to make sure you have enough seats with seat belts, as well as sufficient beds.
Should I Buy a Motorhome or Campervan?
Motorhome or campervan layout is a matter of personal preference. Most of our motorhomes have decent washrooms, with either a separate or combined shower area with WC. Usually the motorhome will have a hot water boiler and heater, usually gas powered, and a kitchen with sink, fridge and some form of cooking facilities. The majority of our motorhomes will have wind out awnings, (essential for European summer evenings), fixed rear cycle racks (some layouts have an under bed garage instead) and may have other extras such as alarms, TV aerials, satellite dishes etc.
When you collect the vehicle, we will give you a comprehensive handover, and explain how everything works. This can easily take an hour especially if you are tired or jet lagged after a long flight! If you have never had a motorhome or campervan holiday before, and you do not take it all in first time then we are only a phone call away. We usually suggest you stay local for the first night, especially if you have just arrived after a long flight. We are happy to make suggestions and even book the site for you if you wish.
