Warners Group Publications, which publishes Britain’s best-selling motorhome magazine, is launching a new guide to help buyers make the right decision when choosing a motorhome.

    Motorhomes can cost anything between £5,000 for an elderly second-hand model to £1.9 million for a new bespoke A-class.

    Typical British buyers will spend between £30,000 and £50,000, making a motorhome the second largest investment of many people’s lives.

    Therefore, it can be a costly mistake if they make the wrong decision. However, get it right and not only can buyers enjoy years of motorhome fun, but some will even be able to sell their ’van on for the same or more than they paid for it.

    Now Warners has produced a new guide – Buying Your First Motorhome – that is packed with all the essential information and advice a first time motorhome buyer needs to be sure they are making the right decision.

    “We know how complicated and daunting it can be for first-time (and even more experienced) motorhome buyers when they embark on the buying process,” explained managing editor Daniel Attwood.

    “There are several stages in the buying process where it is essential the right decision is made, from which motorhome layout or base vehicle is right for you, to ensuring your licence covers you for the weight of motorhome you want to buy right through to which finance options are best for your needs.

    And this is where the new guide can help. It explains every stage in layman’s terms so even first-time buyers will understand all the aspects of buying a motorhome. And best of all it has been written by experts who know the motorhome industry and the motorhome market inside out.”

    The164-page guide simplifies the complicated buying process taking buyers on a step-by-step journey from deciding which layout they need to how to finance it and where is best to buy.

    Buying Your First Motorhome also explains areas such as motorhome layouts, types of motorhomes, base vehicles, chassis and construction, size and weight, where to buy, whether to buy second-hand or new, how to pay and insurance and breakdown cover.

    Plus there is a comprehensive buyers’ guide with over 900 motorhome models listed and a section providing details of the country’s 174 motorhome dealers.

    Buying Your First Motorhome costs £4.99 and is available in WH Smiths.
