The festive season is in full swing here at Webbs, and talk has turned to all things Christmas! It’s easy to overlook how useful your caravan or motorhome can be at this time of year, especially as many of us put our vehicles into hibernation through the winter months. But there are actually lots of ways you can ensure your vehicle earns its keep in the coming weeks.
One of the most obvious ways you can make use of your caravan or motorhome over the Christmas period is to help you cope with the influx of visitors and overnight guests. If your vehicle is parked on your drive, simply crank up the heating, add plenty of cosy bedding and it’ll be a real home from home for friends and family. It’s the perfect way to avoid overcrowding your house, and also gives everyone a bit of much-needed space when tensions run high or an argument breaks out about what to watch on TV!
Your vehicle’s kitchen can also be a godsend when you’re preparing a feast for the whole family. We’ve heard from many customers over the years who have cooked a whole Christmas dinner using just their caravan or motorhome – some choosing to cook a traditional turkey in the oven, others taking a more creative approach and rustling up Christmas kebabs on the barbecue! Just having the option to use it in addition to your home kitchen can be of great benefit though, especially for things like keeping vegetables hot, warming plates or having an extra couple of hobs for sauces and puddings. And obviously, the extra fridge space comes in very handy for Christmas tipples!
If you’ve got children, why not turn your caravan or motorhome into a magical Winter Wonderland? You can have fun as a family adorning the vehicle with tinsel and fairy lights, or making your own decorations. The kids will love having their friends over to admire their handiwork, and you’ll be the envy of your neighbours, too. You could even go the whole hog and create your very own Santa’s grotto – you just need to persuade one of the men in the family to dress up as the big man himself!
Of course, for the adventurers among us, the ultimate way to make use of your caravan or motorhome at Christmas is to take to the open road. There’s no better way to escape the hustle and bustle of what can be an incredibly busy and stressful time of year. It’s also a great way to relax and enjoy some quality family time, and waking up on Christmas morning to a frost-covered landscape or deserted beach can be truly magical. Many UK campsites remain open all year round, and most host special events, so it’s well worth considering if you’re looking for a Christmas with a difference.
Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and a very happy New Year, from all of the team at Webbs!
