Friendly Club launches motorhome try-before-you-buy scheme

Take a motorhome for a test drive with the Camping and Caravanning Club's latest scheme...

Have you ever thought you might prefer not having to hitch up your caravan before heading off on your jollies and quite like the idea of just hopping into your tourer and driving off instead?

If so, then the Camping and Caravanning Club’s new scheme could be perfect for you.

The Friendly Club has launched a new try-before-you-buy scheme that takes the risk out of buying a motorhome by letting you take one on a test trip to get a feel for it.

There’s no doubt that buying a motorhome is a major investment and not a decision to be made on a whim, so the Privilege Scheme hire service allows you to do the necessary research before you part with your hard-earned cash.

More than 100 companies in the UK have registered their motorhomes with the Club’s scheme so there are plenty to choose from, and each vehicle comes with a guide that entitles the user to discounts on pitches the Club’s sites with their hired tourer.
