mistakes to avoid if you are a beginner

If you are new to this, there are certain automatisms that you do not yet have. Here is a selection of mistakes to avoid with a motorhome!

Often based on utilities, camping-cars fitted out are quite impressive to drive for the first time. If you have planned to spend the next vacation crisscrossing the roads of France in a motorhome, however, know that these vehicles are within everyone’s reach, since a B license allows you to get behind the wheel of a motorhome. Here are some mistakes to avoid so as not to find yourself in a delicate situation during your trip!

Overloading your motorhome

While it might be tempting to take anything and everything aboard your motorhome, because after all, you feel a bit at home … Know that this is a bad idea. Indeed, the storage space on board is not unlimited, and you must keep in mind that it is not necessary to not exceed a total weight (GVW) of 3.5 tonnes in order to be able to drive your motorhome with a simple B license. So take only what is strictly necessary, and remember that you will be able to stock up on provisions once you arrive at your destination.


Neglecting safety on board

If your motorhome is cozy and comfortable, remember that it becomes a vehicle when in motion. Do not forget to store your personal effects or your dishes in the various pieces of furniture, and to close the doors well. In addition to the breakage of your objects, they could become dangerous projectiles that can cross the entire cabin, and put you in danger. Safety first !

Forgetting to take the template into account

Once behind the wheel, you realize that it is not that difficult to drive a motorhome. Beware, however, of overconfidence, since the dimensions of a motorhome are not at all those of a car! Remember to carefully observe the signs indicating the height of bridges and tunnels, or blind spots. If possible, get help when maneuvering, to avoid damaging your motorhome against a wall or an obstacle, and forget about underground car parks, whose height is often less than two meters.
