Perfect Motorhomes for a road trip

After feeling inspired by the blog we posted for David and Christina who purchased a motorhome from us and then went for a road trip from Portugal to the east coast of Spain. 

We have picked three Chausson Motorhomes which we think would be perfect for anyone who has been dreaming of going on a road trip but doesn't know where to start when it comes to finding that perfectly suited motorhome.

Chausson Twist 594

The Chausson TWIST 594 is a 2 x berth campervan, with cooking, sleeping & washing facilities in a vehicle not much bigger than an estate car.

Imagine backing up to a Scottish landscape, a beautiful loch maybe, flinging open the two rear doors and sitting with a glass of wine watching the sun go down.

Also, picture yourself driving Scotland`s “Route 66” ... The North Coast 500” with its breath-taking scenery and challenging narrow roads. The Chausson Twist is so car like to drive and easy to manage. It would be the ideal choice for a trip to Bonny Scotland and just about anywhere else you care to imagine.Well specified and sensibly priced.

Chausson 530 Welcome

With similar qualities to the Twist,  the 530 Welcome remains compact and nimble, (its just under 6 x metres in length, and just 2.3 metres wide).

However, with its innovative `Drop-Down` bed design and full-width rear washroom,  the 530 offers improved sleeping washing, sleeping and cooking facilities not for 2 x persons, but for four.

Available on either the Fiat or Ford platforms the 530 is the benchmark compact 6 x metre coach-built motorhome in our market place today..

Chausson 630 Welcome Premium

The Chausson 630 Welcome Premium AUTOMATIC is a little longer than the Twist or the 530, and with its `Smart Lounge` design the extra space has been put to extremely good use.

At 7 x metres in length, it can still navigate the windy roads of Scotland, but for those who relish a little solitude it has two `drop-down` single beds that can be  used independently.

(when they are `together` at the same height, or fully down then they feel like a double bed).

So if one of you would like an afternoon siesta, without preventing your partner from using any of the other facilities on board, (like the kitchen, the washroom, or the lounge) the 630 might just be worth a second  look.

With its full width rear washroom and large wardobe, and cavernous garage the 630 offers something the Twist and the 530 cannot.

Storage , Space & more Storage. It has a garage that enables bikes and luggage to be stored safely away from the elements, and for those planning longer trips away this might be a feature worth having.

Capable of accommodating up to 4 x persons, and like the 530 model,  available on the Fiat or Ford platforms and also available in either manual or automatic transmissions.

For good reasons the 630 remains one of our `best-selling` motorhomes.

Elddis ACCORDO 125

Ivan & Sandra from Margate are pictured taking delivery of their very first Motorhome, An Elddis ACCORDO 125 from our modern showroom located in Herne Bay, Kent.

Sandra confirmed that The Elddis Accordo is ideal for what they both need, something compact (it`s under 6 x Metres).

That can accommodate 2 x people comfortably, with a terrific specification.

She added..  We have now joined the Motorhome And Camping club and also Brit Stops (Overnight camping at Pubs, Farms and Vineyards).

Along the Algarve Coast Road Trip

Along the Algarve Coast .. then on to Spain!

One of our previous customer's featured here has taken their new Chausson 640 Titanium motorhome for a tour around the Algarve.

They have been sharing with us their experience, we thought it would be good to share with you, to show the possibilities!

Skies have now been blue & clear for the last fortnight since we left ALVOR, as we hop along the Algarve coast, discovering its history and its beautiful 100 million year old geographic coastline. With its many sandy beaches and one of the world best rated beach at Marinha.

First we stopped at Silves having a short stopover to visit the old Moors Castle. Moving onto a a quirky hippy camp amongst shacks and bushy gardens above Carvoeiro town. A few days here walking the cliffs and sight seeing in the local tourist town.

At Marinha we Wild Camped above the beach and its wonderous shaped eroded cliffs and rocks.

Further along the coast just 4 miles west of Albufeira we found a lovely friendly campsite, Parque da Gale close to endless beaches and coves, where we relaxed and chilled out, with a lovely cooling breeze coming off the Atlantic. A good day trip to the Albufeira historical part of the old town, a lovely fish meal and then completed by a sailing trip along the beautiful coastline on the MARA CAT taking in the many coves and the spectacular Cave at Benagil.



Leaving Portugal, temperatures rise so we aborted Malaga & Cordoba and a stop over in the beautiful National Park near Almeria above the beach at the lovely and remount hamlet of Ia Isleta.

Moving on we spend a very different night in a local petrol station in Cartagena but very convenient with a short walk into the town and the port. We headed for the tourist office, only to be told that all tourist sites were now closed for 2 months for holidays. So what do the tourist do in summer ?? We still managed to visit the Roman Theatre and the lovely street architecture, well worth the visit.

Taking the high road well away Benidorm we travelled to the historic town of ALTEA, with its modern beach resort, and slightly further away we camped in the suburbs of ALBIR (the cheaper end). From here we were able to cycle to the delightful beautiful old town with its church perched on top of the hill, and to its headland to get great views along the coast of Costa Blanca. Now you can't go to Costa Blanca without taking in the Sun, Sand & Sea.

Taking ourselves to a cheap'o camp site at Calpe we spent a sun tanning week both on the beach and walking much of the coastal paths taking in the coves and small marinas. We were also delighted by the paella cooked up by Rodriguez, the camp owner at 2 euros, amazing. Now we could of stayed much longer in Calpe but we like to save the best to last, so we moved onto our favourite camp site in Xabia for this is our Holiday time after the touring.

Not to be disappointed Javea Camping had extensively modified into a 5 star pool where we could relax in the whirlpools and recover from all that cycling. We manage a couple of long cycle rides (23 miles) taking in the amazing coastal view points and a hairy ride up to Montgo Mountain. Crazy, amazing, lunatic the only way you could describe Xabia 10 day festival of San Joan with Bull running, massive street parties, fire jumping, furniture bonfire, crazy street fireworks, burning of towering art work figures and huge fireworks display, all finished off with music band/disco to 5 a.m in the morning. Could you sleep through this ????

Time to work our way home its been a wonderful 2019 tour.
