Motorhome and Campervans With Ready-To-Go Camping Equipment

When you hire a campervan in London you can be on the road right away, trusting that your roadsurfer home on wheels is fully stocked. Your campervan comes with an awning, camping table and two chairs to enjoy the space outside of your vehicle. The kitchen box allows you to save money on eating out: you’ve got all the pots, pans, and utensils to cook up your own meals. There’s even a corkscrew and bottle opener, and a cafetière plus mugs for your morning coffee or tea, although you’ll want to bring dish towels, sponges, and eco-friendly dish soap. When you rent a small motorhome from London you will need to bring your own bedding, or you can hire what you need from the station. The full details can be found in the equipment list on our website.

Best Time to Hire a Campervan in London

London is in the southeast of England which is one of the warmest parts of the country. As with the whole of the UK, the warmest months of June-August are the busiest, but the most likely to bring sunshine and hot weather, perfect for touring the coastline and enjoying the beach. Summer is also a great time for festivals!

April, May, September and October bring more rain, but if you’re not afraid of a few showers then you’ll find everywhere is less busy, and you’ll experience the vivid colours of nature as everything blooms and then dies off.

Filling and Emptying Water Tanks in London

When you rent a motorhome in London you’ll need to fill up on fresh water and then empty your waste water at the end of your trip. Unlike America and continental Europe there are not many places to do this other than campsites, so the best option is to start and finish your adventure with a stay at a campsite that has these facilities. Some campsites allow you to use their facilities for a small fee if not staying there. This map when filtered for ‘Aires with disposal services’ shows available waste disposal sites – you can see how rare they are in the UK, so a campsite with these facilities is ideal.
