Motorhoming has changed significantly over the years, and with it, the experience of women travelling alone in motorhomes has also evolved.
As a solo female myself, the fear of travelling alone has stopped me from making plans and having the freedom to explore new places on my own terms. My main worries are during the evening and night when it’s dark, the world can seem a scarier place.
More women are embracing the freedom and independence that comes with travelling alone. Owning a motorhome provides a great space for travelling, with all the essentials you need for a comfortable trip away.
Motorhomes have the added security of locks that you don’t get with a tent, making it easier to worry less and get a good night sleep. Giving women the ability to live on their own terms, and travelling alone provides an opportunity to explore the world without any limitations.
Another reason why more women are choosing to travel solo in a motorhome is the flexibility it provides. With a motorhome or campervan, women can take their time exploring different places, staying in one location for as long as they like or moving on when they feel ready. They can also change their plans at a moment’s notice, without having to worry about the logistics of finding new accommodations or transportation.
The rise of social media has also played a role in encouraging more women to take up motorhome travel. With platforms like Instagram & Tiktok, women can share their experiences and connect with other solo travellers, providing a sense of community and support that can make the experience less daunting. Social media also provides inspiration and ideas for places to visit, routes to take, and activities to try, making it easier for women to plan their trips.
Travelling alone in a motorhome can also be a transformative experience, providing women with the opportunity to discover new things about themselves and the world around them. It can be a chance to step out of one’s comfort zone and challenge oneself, whether it’s navigating new roads or meeting new people. It’s an opportunity to create lasting memories and gain a new perspective on life.
Believe it or not, women don’t require a male presence to change a tyre and are more than capable of emptying a sogbog. Here’s a few tips on what you might need while travelling alone. Apart from a good bottle of wine and chocolates…

4. POWER BANK
