The caravanning sector has grown since the pandemic and many people enjoy motorhomes as a regular method of travel. The mobility provided by mobile homes is innumerable, since you can get to know several places in a few days without the need to be tied to the schedules and availability of hotels or air transport. They are designed for all types of families, even large ones, since there are models with a capacity of up to eight people.
With motorhomes you can configure personalized routes and you can reach almost anywhere. Currently, in almost all municipalities there are parking areas and overnight stays. You can sleep in them legally and without risking receiving a fine, as the law indicates: “While any vehicle is correctly parked, without exceeding the road markings delimiting the parking area”, and provided that “the activity that can be developed inside does not transcend to the outside through the use of elements that go beyond the perimeter of the vehicle such as stalls, awnings, leveling devices, security supports, etc.
In order to deploy an awning, for example, it would be necessary to camp in campsites or in designated areas. Nor can you park a motorhome on the beach, according to the Coastal Law, but there are usually nearby parking areas.
Profiled, capuchin and integral motorhomes
There are different types of caravan, depending on the capacity for which they are approved. The profiled ones are those with the lowest occupant capacity. They can sleep 4 people, with seats that convert into a double bed and another that can be tilted under the roof. They measure between 6 and 7.5 meters and include a bathroom with a shower and a kitchen. They are the cheapest and in many cases are recommended for traveling as a couple.
Designed for large families, the Capuchin motorhomes can accommodate up to 6 occupants. The measurements are similar to those outlined, but include a bedroom with a fixed double bed above the cabin plus two or three single bunk beds, kitchen and bathroom with shower.
And the most luxurious of all are the integral ones. They are built on industrial vehicle chassis, can measure up to eight meters and house eight people. They are the ones that are most equipped, since, depending on the model, they include heating, a kitchen with an oven and extractor fan or a large trunk for bikes, for example.
