WIFI in a motorhome

How to connect a phone and other smart devices to the internet while camping.

Wireless internet has been around for years, but most people still aren't using it. Why not? It's easier than ever, Wi-Fi is an easy way to stay connected while on vacation or in remote locations.

Here's how to get started.

If you're planning a camping trip, you'll want to make sure you have access to a reliable source of Wi-Fi. You have the option to use a smartphone or tablet as a hotspot, but if you are using a mobile phone that doesn’t have much data it can become expensive.

A wireless router will allow you to share your connection with other devices, such as laptops, tablets, smartphones and even Smart TV’s. Some of our customers are already up and running with Motorhome Wi-Fi and like the convenience and simplicity of using an Amazon Firestick, so if you already have one at home, why not utilise it whilst you are away in your motorhome!

The Motorhome Wi-Fi of choice with our customers seems to be the 5G Ready Compact + which we fit neatly into the motorhome, together with a discreet roof-top aerial for maximum signal reception.

The systems come with a Smarty mini sim include and are 30-day PAYG plans which can be topped up as and when or replaced with your own preferred sim, perhaps from your mobile phone supplier, where you may be able to negotiate a better data usage plan.

5G Ready Compact +: Fitted from £895 plus vat

Similar 4G systems:  Fitted from £495 plus vat

If you would more information on Wi-Fi set up or would like to book your motorhome for us to fit it then please feel free to contact us on 01227 289111.
