All our motorhomes have a ‘leisure battery’ which can run the electrical systems, typically for 1 or 2 nights without ‘hooking up’ to an electricity supply, all of our vehicles also have solar power. How long it lasts will depend on how much you use electrical appliances and lights. The leisure battery also gets recharged as you drive.




Do I need a pitch with water?


All our motorhomes have on-board water and waste tanks so this isn’t essential. Just remember to fill the water tank when you arrive on site.
