'Motorhome' means a road vehicle designed and constructed primarily to provide sleeping accommodation for the number of occupants that the vehicle is designed to carry.  A motorhome is also referred to as a campervan.  When making your booking, you need to book the motorhome or campervan as a vehicle and at step three, select the motorhome/campervan option.   

A 'caravan' is a unit which is designed and constructed primarily to provide sleeping accommodation. However it is a separate non motorised unit and therefore must be towed by a motorised unit in order to be transported.  When booking your caravan, you need to select the 'towing a caravan or trailer' option. You will need to provide the full length of your vehicle from end to end. The length includes the caravan and attachments such as a drawbar, bike racks, gas cylinders etc.
