Motorhome Layout? Your main choice
Your motorhome layout will be the crucial success factor! We’ve talked to many of our customers who would suggest that there are lots of personal preferences and logical choices to be made as well, but the layout is at the top of the list. If you’re going to make a success of living in such a relatively small space, possibly for extended periods of time, then, when choosing a motorhome, layout becomes the most important aspect.
It’s not just a logical choice!
When searching for a used motorhome to buy you’ll have a good idea of which manufacturers you like. Many will know if they want a manual or automatic. If you plan to tour the UK then a right-hand drive is a natural choice. But if you see Europe being your destination then a left-hand drive may well be more ideal. Weights and sizes will depend on your driving license categories and experience. There’s a lot of personal yet logical preferences in all of this of course. So let’s think about this: It’s got to be a right-hand drive, automatic, under 3.5 tonne and German-built… Hmmm
Who’s choice is it?
Start with ‘layout’ first

Once you know how many berths you need (by the way, it’s hardly ever 2 even if there’s just 2 of you) then we can help you look at how it is all laid out. The categories listed below gives you a simple checklist but if you click on the following link to CaravanFinder Motorhome Layouts you’ll see loads of variations. Some you’ll like and some you definitely won’t, but it’s still not an easy decision. When you’ve been through them all and listed your preferences, you’ll need to see them up close and personal.

Looking at a computer screen or a piece of paper isn’t a replacement for getting hands-on. If you want to look at 10-15 vehicles that will meet your needs that’s fine, but did you really think you could make a decision that quickly… no chance… the customers who only want to look at five vehicles often browse around the other vans and see something they hadn’t considered and that ends up being their ideal layout. That’s why, at Oaktree, we leave ALL the vehicles unlocked so that you can really get the feel of how each layout would work for you in practice.
