Motorhome Republic Blog

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!
