Hello and welcome to the Motorhome Republic Blog. Here you will find all things related to the most exciting way to holiday, no matter which country you’re in.

Whatever you want to call the vehicles, from motorhome to campervan or RV, the freedom, fun, adventure and affordability of hiring your own ‘hotel on wheels’ is truly unique. Go wherever you want, whenever you want, with whoever you want. And it’s this sense of liberation we will celebrate on this blog.

Our travel itineraries will provide eye-opening ideas for future vacations, taking in New Zealand, Australia, the USA, Canada, UK and everywhere in-between. Bucket List articles feed the wandering spirit, focusing on the likes of the glorious east coast of Ireland, Norway’s Atlantic Road, the stunning and ethereal landscape of NZ’s South Island, the Winelands of South Africa and many more destinations.
We’re hoping our events section will become an essential guide, as we highlight sporting tournaments, music festivals and all of the wonderful opportunities only accessible with a campervan rental. Industry news is also of paramount importance, along with fun videos and Motorhome Movies, capturing the real essence of what we’re all about.

It’s also YOUR blog, so interaction is key. Your stories, your ideas, your feedback… please get in touch and let us know what you think. 

Expect plenty of surprises, quality content and handy information on the Motorhome Republic blog. Happy camping!

  • Just because it’s winter in the US doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy glorious sunshine… just take an RV rental holiday in Florida. The humid subtropical climate means the average high in Miami in January is around a very pleasant 75 degrees farenheit, getting even warmer in February. And with so much to do, major attractions to enjoy and beaches to laze on, a Florida motorhome adventure is the perfect way to kick-start any year.

  • Although camping is about getting back to nature, a smartphone can make things easier and allow you to relax and enjoy your campervan road trip with little stress. Motorhome Republic has searched high and low to find the best Australia motorhome apps to ensure your holiday goes smoothly.
  • Combining the picturesque wineries of Victoria with motorhome adventure, the Maui Winery Havens is a unique Australian getaway. Hit the road in your own hotel on wheels, with five world-class wineries to choose from. 
  • Put simply, Victoria’s Great Ocean Road is 243 kilometres of breathtaking scenery and fabulous natural attractions, stretching along the coast of southern Australia.

  • When you think of Norway, skiing, whale meat and reindeer probably spring to mind. But there’s a special holiday perfect for motorhome travellers. 
  • It’s called Godzone for a reason – and we are so blessed here in New Zealand. Lord of the Rings has undoubtedly helped put Aotearoa on the international tourism map, but the South Island has always been a jaw-dropping destination. 
  • America is a vast expanse, with hundreds of motorhome road-trip options – but one region often overlooked is the stunning north-east coast of Portland, Oregon.
