One of the best parts of a vacation is the type of lodging you choose. For example, you might enjoy staying in a mobile home while lounging at the beach. So, if you’re looking to change up your vacation routine this year, take a look at our tips on mobile home holidays abroad. Maybe you’ll find some inspiration for your next vacation!
First, a word on packing & planning for mobile home holidays abroad
Of course, you’ll need your passport and other necessary papers anytime you choose to travel abroad. However, there are a few more things you should keep in mind while packing and planning for such a trip.
Have a backup plan for important documents
Suppose you’re enjoying your trip and suddenly realize that you’ve lost your passport and your other important documents. What now? Hopefully, you previously emailed yourself a copy of each important paper before you left on your trip. That way, you’ll have access to your papers if anything happens.
Clothing and culture
When traveling to a country with different standards of dress than your own, it’s generally wise to observe that country’s dress code to some extent. In some countries, displaying too much skin can get you in trouble. Therefore, do a little research and pack accordingly to avoid any unpleasant confrontations during your trip.
Finding your ideal location
Planning mobile home holidays abroad is often best accomplished by using a site like TripAdvisor or Airbnb. Through sites like these, you’ll be able to find a mobile home vacation rental that suits your needs. While choosing your lodging, create a checklist of what you need out of a vacation rental.
- What type of mobile home are you looking for – rustic and old-fashioned, or classy and chic?
- How far do you want to be from a town or city?
- How close do you want to be to other tourists/vacationers or locals? (In other words, would you rather have quick access to food, fuel, attractions, and other people, or would you find a remote area more enjoyable?)
- Do you have any security or safety concerns about the area you’re visiting?
- Does the mobile home have good customer reviews?
#1: Looking for a relaxing vacation spot? Rent an airstream caravan in Spain
You’ve probably seen one before – a sleek, aluminum airstream caravan with up-to-date internal features. While you can rent airstream campers in many parts of the world, you’ll find a special type of peaceful relaxation if you rent one in the village of Alozaina, which is part of Andalucia, Spain. It’s a great vacation spot to catch some peace and quiet and enjoy yourself. You can rent an airstream caravan in Alozaina using Airbnb.
Alozaina boasts a rich landscape of fertile fields and a spectacular mountain range that features beautiful forests. With a population of two to three thousand, the small village is typically a serene area that contains a few of its own historical landmarks. Peace and quiet is easily attainable there.
#2: For something fun and unique, try “Gandalf’s caravan” in Ireland
Maybe you’re looking for something a bit out of the ordinary this year. If that’s the case, you might enjoy the whimsical camper known as “Gandalf’s Gypsy Caravan,” located in the Glengarriff Nature Reserve of Ireland. The camper is certainly one-of-a-kind, with an abundance of surrounding nature that you can explore during your stay. It’s available for rent through Airbnb.
About the Glengarriff nature reserve
The Glengarriff Nature Reserve is home to striking woodlands overlooked by the Caha Mountains. If you think you’d enjoy exploring the nature reserve, there are several trails that you can choose from based on the level of difficulty you desire.
#3: Check out some mobile homes near the beach for a family-friendly option
Who doesn’t love a relaxing day near a peaceful village in Spain? More importantly, who doesn’t love getting to stay in a less formal, more fancifully-inspired trailer dedicated to a famous movie character? Both are great options, but there could be a reason to turn them down in favor of something even better – making sure your whole family has a great vacation.
Most parents are familiar with the phrase, “Are we there yet? Are we there yet?” during a family vacation. Kids are always full of excitement during a vacation and full of energy upon reaching the destination. Therefore, they’re probably going to be a little bored with a quiet village or a nature reserve. Instead, consider staying in a mobile home near the beach for your next family trip. It’ll be your kids’ favorite vacation for years to come!
(The best part is, you can choose any beach where mobile homes are available as vacation rentals. Whatever part of the world you want to visit is there for the taking!)
#4: A romantic getaway isn’t hard to find
Believe it or not, there are mobile home campsites designed just for couples’ getaways. If this year’s trip is just for you and your significant other, why not treat yourself to a romantic couples’ mobile home vacation in France? You’ll be sure to enjoy a mobile home that’s specifically tailored for a cute couples’ holiday!
Regardless of your situation, make sure to spend your mobile home holidays abroad in the way that makes you and yours the happiest. Take this opportunity to rest and wind down from the holidays with the people you love most – or, if you’re on your own for this trip, give yourself a pat on the back for making it through another year!
