If you are new to Motorhomes then join me for a look at our Motorhome. Our Motorhome is a Swift Kon-Tiki Sport 574, based on a Fiat Ducato, one of the most common vehicle bases for Motorhomes. If you've just bought your first motorhome or, you're planning on getting a motorhome and want to know what it might be like, watch this video.

For people who are not new to Motorhomes, please share any tips you have in the comments below.

A Motorhome or motorcaravan, is a vehicle of two parts, the motor and the home or caravan part. In the first two parts, I'm going to cover the motor and the caravan part. Then I'm looking at packing, driving, and setting up at a campsite and finally, generally what's it like to own a motorhome.
