Travelling on New Zealand’s roads can present its own issues, especially if you’re driving something bigger than a car.
So here are some tips for those people heading away in a Motek motorhome for their holidays.
Whether you’re heading away for a weekend break, or a longer tour of the country, it pays to be careful on the roads.
- When driving a motorhome, remember to increase your braking distance, especially if you are used to driving a car.
- Be aware of the types of roads you will be driving on too. Narrow roads and wide vans don’t go well together, nor do low branches, bridges and overhead cables
- Another good tip it to try to avoid driving in severe wind
And finally, remember to take your time, enjoy the drive and make regular stops. The beauty of a motorhome holiday is that the journey should be as fun as the destination.
And the great thing with your motorhome is that you only need a standard driver’s license to operate them, with both Automatic and Manual transmission options.
