Advantages;
For motorhomes, much more room, much more comfort, much better facilities.
For campervans; much easier to park, usable as an everyday car, probably better fuel consumption.

Disadvantages;
Motorhomes; difficult to park for shopping etc, unless very small cannot really be used as an everyday car, often very expensive to buy.
Campervans; need to make a bed up every night, often need alternative toilet facilities, can be rather cramped.

For us, if money was no object (which it most certainly isn't!) we would have a 5th-wheeler.

Whilst I would agree with that to an extent, I think that another major reason that most "motorhomers" prefer a hard standing pitch, is because the vast majority of the vehicles will be front wheel drive- and many of which will also be grossly over-bodied and tail heavy in design and many will be close to, if not over their max weight- and as such will be very prone to getting stuck on grass if/when it is wet..

(on the "power" side of things,we used to have a 7mtr MH, and with no additional batteries or solar, we could pitch up off-grid for up to a week at a time. Having said that we were quite frugal and tended to have a "camping" mindset )




Good point. Our vehicle is actually rear wheel drive and to be honest, itís no good on wet grass if there is much of a hill either.
