Motor homes also come with their own particular needs. Although you are not usually responsible for emptying your motor home’s septic tank, you will be responsible for taking care of that if you fill the tank.

Electricity is also an issue, as many travelers want to keep their lights and stoves working when they are not driving. Most motor homes, especially the very large ones, will have generators onboard to keep these things running.

Small motor homes usually sleep between 2 and 4 people, while large motor homes can sleep 6 and sometimes 8 people.
