While a motorhome does cost more to rent than a car, your real savings come into effect when you prepare your own breakfasts, packed lunches and dinners. Especially on longer trips, one does get tired of eating every meal out and you find yourself longing for a simple meal of mashed potatoes and sausage which can be easily prepared in your campervan. Shopping for groceries is such fun and its a great way to meet the locals and experience the country in which you are vacationing. If you do your research and ask all the right questions of the agency renting you a campervan you will be pleasantly surprised with an extraordinary campervan vacation.
