Motorhome Republic Blog

Hello, and welcome to the Motorhome Republic Blog! Here, you’ll find anything and everything related to the best ways to holiday, no matter where you are in the world. 

Whatever you want to call them - motorhome, campervan, caravan, RV - the freedom, fun, adventure, and affordability of hiring your own little ‘hotel on wheels’ is no matter of debate. You can go wherever you want, whenever you want, with whoever you want - and it’s this sense of liberation we love to celebrate on this blog. 

Our travel itineraries are a hub for inspiring adventure and exploration - here to provide eye-opening ideas for future vacations, spanning New Zealand, Australia, the USA, Canada, the UK, and everywhere in-between. Our Bucket-List articles feed the wandering spirit, focusing on the endless thrills and wonderful memories you could make road-tripping the glorious east coast of Ireland, the Winelands of South Africa, the ethereal landscape of New Zealand, and so much more. 

We aim to make our events section an essential guide, highlighting sports tournaments, music festivals, international celebrations, and all the wonderful opportunities only accessible with a motorhome rental.  And our fun road trip videos capture the real essence of what we’re all about.

It’s also YOUR blog, so interaction is key. Your stories, your ideas, your feedback keep us inspired and in the loop with what you desire most - so please, get in touch and let us know what you think!

Expect plenty of inspiration, quality content, and handy information on our Motorhome Republic blog. Happy camping!
