Campervan? Motorhome? What’s the difference?

What’s the difference between a campervan and a motorhome, you may ask? It seems to be a matter of opinion, but one difference is size: campervans are usually small, built on something about the size of a Volkswagen Kombi, while motorhomes are larger. Another difference is that most campervans do not have showers and toilets built in, while motorhomes do have those facilities.

Until about 10 years ago, rental (or even purchased) motorhomes were unusual. Now they’re very common and popular. In addition to several commercial magazines, there’s an owners’ club (that anyone can join) that publishes useful booklets on places to stay and other valuable information. Contact them at Campervan & Motorhome Club of Australia.
