  1. Pre-owned is the perfect option
  2. Frequency
  3. Fun Times
  4. Folks you meet

It’s coming up to summer, and so this year’s holiday time is almost here. It’s the perfect opportunity to consider travel plans – not just where you’re going but how you’re going to get there. Whether you already own a motorhome, campervan or caravan, or are a first-time buyer looking to experience a new style of getaway, if you opt for a pre-owned model you can award yourself some serious smart points.

Not only is this type of vehicle a budget-friendly choice (enabling you to enjoy a new lifestyle environment at a fraction of the cost of buying new) but it also offers several other advantages which we covered in a previous edition of our blog. This time, then, we’ll explore more benefits of opting for a pre-owned vehicle and shopping with rove!

Why buying a pre-owned campervan, motorhome or caravan is the perfect option

When you have the option to buy a pre-owned motorhome, campervan or caravan, it’s important to buy from a reputable dealer – in other words, rove! This will ensure that you benefit from our combined industry experience of more than 50 years, and enjoy a comfortable buying experience. You’ll find great quality and a good selection of vehicles to choose from – and you’ll benefit from the advantages of ownership that we describe below…


You will definitely find that your investment in a campervan or motorhome encourages you to take more frequent breaks – both the spontaneous kind and those you’ve planned in advance. Rather than ‘wasting away’ at home, with your motorhome sitting idle on the driveway, you’ll probably find yourself thinking about more weekends away and holiday time activities.

You’ll want to explore interesting parts of the UK that you’ve never been to before, and you may even think about venturing into Europe. The UK boasts a wealth of attractions, from historic sites and natural beauty spots to vibrant cities, while Europe still has that exotic air – fantastic cities, beautiful scenery. With a campervan or motorhome, you can easily embark – and embark as often as you like – meaning you’ll make the most of vehicle ownership by using it more often.

Fun Times

Life on the road offers a truly unique way for anyone to create holiday memories, especially families or groups of friends. Living in a motorhome or campervan means close quarters and camaraderie – quite a different holiday experience compared to the one you’d have if you all stayed in separate rooms in a hotel.

When you’re travelling in a group the shared experience of on the road life will bring people closer together and add a different flavour to adventures. You will be able to share being in the vehicle together during travel or hanging out together in the evenings during ‘down time’, and you will be able to share the excitement of exploring the places that you visit. ‘Making memories’, as they say. Having companions when you’re on the road is very important – though, equally, if you are the kind of person who relishes solitude and find spending time alone to be the most fun, then there’s no stopping you either!

Folks you meet

It is not uncommon for owners of caravans, campervans or motorhomes to make fast friends when they’re out there on the road, as the shared experience can be something which bonds people. Ownership often comes with a built-in sense of community. On the road, you’ll find that fellow leisure vehicle travellers are generally very friendly and welcoming. Each year there are numerous organised meet-ups and gatherings for motorhome and campervan owners.

Leisure vehicle enthusiasts can also connect through online chat rooms, forums and websites, which also offer a valuable resource for sharing tips, experiences and advice. This may prove especially welcome or useful when you have bought pre-owned as there will be people out there who are more than willing to pass on their expertise or describe their experience of the particular vehicle you’ve bought.

Here at rove! we offer a wide selection of pre-owned vehicles for you to choose from. Check out our stock, and come and see us!
