We are a retired couple based on the south coast of England just by the harbour in Poole, Dorset and are also keen sailors with fast cruising yacht. We love using our Motorhome and like travelling to new places and different countries in Europe and also have a small villa at L'Escala in NE Spain. Our motorhome ha 4 berth capability but is compact (under 6 metres in length), and so relatively easy to park and ideally suitable for 2 persons plus maybe a child. It is kept immaculately. It is fitted out for wild camping with an extra watertank and toilet sewage tank and additional conservative LED lighting. Ideally we would like to tour North and South Island over 2 months in a similar sized Motorhome in the months of January and February.

A few thoughts for first time exchangers.

You probably need to place your listing or ad at least 6-8 months prior to your contemplated holiday.

Look for an exchange with a motor home that is similar in size to your own. Remember you will be in a different country and you will need to concentrate on traffic conditions and road signs rather than the size of the vehicle.

Come to an agreement over insurance and any other costs that may occur during the exchange, for example if the fridge breaks down, or you get a blow-out in one of the tyres.

Join a motor home association in the country you intend to holiday in. They can often make bookings for you on ferries etc and provide good information on camping sites.

Keep in constant touch with the people you have exchanged with building up a bond with them so that you both feel comfortable with the exchange.

Last but not least it is worthwhile producing a realistic itinerary so that you can accommodate all the sights you envisage visiting.
