Touring Europe in a Motorhome, so how much did it cost for 12 months?


Our Motorhome Tour Budget

When we set off in 2014 we really had no idea how much our motorhome road trip would cost. Of course we set ourselves a budget and we guessed around £25,000 for both us (which is very cheap) would just about cover us.  To our surprise it cost us significantly less, which means we can carry on touring for longer!
