  1. Specialised GPS system

If you already have a sat-nav that works fine, you might be wondering why you should invest in a specialist alternative - surely that’s a waste of money? GPS systems that are designed primarily for motorhomes have many features that regular GPS systems don’t have. Instead of just giving you the route options, specialist motorhome sat navs also tell you which roads are suitable for heavy vehicle and which are not. As well as which routes contain height restrictions that may cause you problems. Pretty amazing, right?
  1. Mobile Wi-Fi hotspots

When you are travelling, mobile Wi-Fi can often be hard to find, which can leave you feeling cut off from the world. However, if you invest in a Wi-Fi hotspot, you won’t need to worry about this. A Wi-FI hotspot may be a little expensive to buy, but once you’ve got it, you’ve got it. How Wifi hotspots work is they connect to mobile internet and convert it into free W--Fi for you to use - they are fantastic gadgets.
  1. Electronic safe

If you often travel with important items like passports, foreign currency, jewellery, and other valuables, then investing in a safe is an excellent idea. While you can choose to invest in an old-fashioned safe, electronic models tend to be much more secure. The best safes to choose are the ones that can be charged as you drive, hold their charge for a long time and don’t open if they lose power. You can also get safes that have charging ports inside them so that you can safely leave your phone or camera to charge while you are out and about.
  1. IPad

Most mobile homes don’t have television or other forms of entertainment, so investing in an IPad is a good idea. You can use your IPad for everything, from watching movies and browsing the internet to playing games and completing important travel tasks. If you are planning a long-term trip and don’t know when or if you will be returning home, an IPad is crucial. It will allow you to keep in contact with your friends and family, complete work and keep on top of your motorhomes legal requirements. For example, if your insurance was about to expire, you could use your IPad to compare motorhome insurance at motorhomeinsurance.org.uk. Or, if your tax was about to run out, you could use your IPad to renew your vehicles tax easily.
  1. Kindle

If you love to read, but don’t have enough space to take all your favourite books on your trip with you, a Kindle is the perfect gadget. Kindles aren’t too expensive to buy and can store hundreds of your favourite books on them. This makes them the ideal travel companion for anyone who enjoys reading.
