Christmas is finally over, which means the next thing we have to look forward to is New Year’s Eve and a brand new year filled with opportunities and adventures! Over the next few days you may start thinking about your New Year’s Resolutions which will probably include the same things you promise yourself every year – to eat healthier, get more exercise and generally try and be a more organised person.
However, at Comfort Insurance we thought it would be fun to come up with some alternative resolutions for motorhome and campervan owners (although we will all still be trying to lose weight after all the mince pies we’ve eaten!)
1. I will spend more time maintaining my Motorhome or Campervan
It’s one of those things that if we’re honest with ourselves we don’t spend enough time doing, as keeping your motorhome or campervan well-maintained is not always the most fun activity in the world. This means that on those lazy Saturday afternoons you will have probably put off giving your motorhome the care it deserves – but not anymore! Why not make 2015 the year that you truly take care of your motorhome? If you do, not only is it likely to last longer but it also means that you will be able to take it out on spontaneous trips whenever you like!
2. I will Travel somewhere New
Here at Comfort Insurance we are firm believers in trying new things, especially when you have the luxury of traveling in a motorhome or campervan. Earlier this year we published our Autumn Road Trip Guide in order to prove to motorhome owners that even in months that aren’t traditionally associated with motorhome holidays there are some great attractions to visit. In January most people start thinking about their next holidays, however we want you to think about doing something different! If you’ve never been outside of Europe then why not plan a trip to the States? Or if you are after something more adventurous why not try wild camping? The world is truly your oyster!
3. I will join the Motorhome Community
One of the best things about being a motorhome or campervan owner is that you automatically become part of friendly, close-knit community. If you have yet to take advantage of this fact then make sure 2015 is the year that you really get to know other motorhome and campervan enthusiasts in your area. Even if there aren’t many where you live you can still go online and visit forums where motorhome owners discuss their motorhome insurance providers, favourite holiday destinations, top tips and more! Who knows, you could even end up organising a holiday with your new found-friends!
4. I will visit a Motorhome Show
2014 marked the first time that Comfort Insurance officially sponsored Busfest, the biggest VW Transporter Show in the world. If you were keeping an eye on our Twitter or Facebook pages during the show you would have seen that we had a fantastic time, which is why we would highly recommend any motorhome or campervan owner to visit a specialist show during 2015. By attending a show not only will you have the chance to look at some of the newest motorhome and campervans to hit the market, but you will also be able to camp for the duration and be treated to numerous pieces of live entertainment and fun activities. There’s literally hundreds of shows to choose from so don’t miss out!
5. I will be Safer on the Roads
Owning a motorhome or campervan isn’t all fun and games, which is why you should make sure that you remain safe on the road at all times. Over the years it’s likely that you’ve picked up a bad habit or two while on your motorhome journeys, which is why you should make 2015 the year that you re-visit your motorhome driving skills. Even if it’s just making sure that you know what to do in an emergency or practicing your parking skills, it will all end up making your journeys that much safer and enjoyable. Remember, as a motorhome or campervan owner you need to be especially careful on the roads, so make sure you brush up on your driving skills!
