The staycation is becoming more and more popular, though motorhome and campervan owners have been enjoying this concept for years. This is because they have long had the opportunity to take their ‘home on wheels’ to wherever they desired, without the need to be cramped into a small tent and having a roof over their heads in the chance that it rains.
Another appealing aspect of owning a campervan or motorhome is that families can take the vehicles to practically anywhere across the globe. With so much choice though, where are the places that holidaymakers should be setting their sights on above anywhere else? Join Audi dealership Vindis as they attempt to answer this question — whether you want a basic wild camping site, a swish site complete with hot tubs and swimming pools, or family holiday parks, there’s sure to be a destination that appeals to you from the following list…
