CARAMAPS ADVICE FOR WELCOMING MOTORHOMES TRAVELERS
Once these criteria have been fulfilled, here are some CaraMaps team tips to promote and encourage motorhomes travelers to stop on your place:
1) The price
We advise not to display a price higher than 15€/night services included, in order not to exceed the price of a campsite or a service area. Especially since that they often offer more various services than an area in a private home (drain, showers, restaurant, wifi, etc.)
2) The land
To accommodate all types of vehicles, make sure you have flat, stabilized and easily accessible pitches. Moreover, it is better to choose a wide and easily accessible entrance for larger motorhomes.
3) The services
Everything is possible, including access to showers, barbecues or even offer a breakfast service! But it is interesting to propose travelers at least satisfy their basic need. We advise you to let them fill their drinking water supply and provide them with electricity. According to us, you will attract a greater number of motorhomes travelers.
