The Motorhome Blog

Welcome to the motorhome blog from Comfort Insurance!

As motorhomers ourselves, we are constantly learning new tips from and sharing our own experiences with the wider community and with new friends we meet while out on the road.

That's why we started this motorhome blog - as a place for our customers to find useful resources which can help them to get even more out of the motorhome lifestyle.

Here at Comfort, we understand that there will be some reservations with taking your family away on a motorhome trip for the first time, but they are actually fantastic because of the freedom and flexibility they give. Our blog posts will cover everything you need to know about motorhoming with the family and kids.

Though the reality doesn’t…
