Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked texts
Question

What if I run out of Milk?

Answer

This is usually a caravan mindset where to set up you have to back in the caravan, get it level, pop the roof and put up the annex, lay the fake grass mat, string the clothes line, hang the solar shower and unfold all the folding furniture. With a motorhome you just drive in and put the kettle on (and maybe plug in 240v if in a caravan/RV park) conversely, to drive off again (to get the milk) put the kettle away, unplug the 240v lead and drive off, it's really that simple. Maybe also keep an emergency supply of longlife milk in the motorhome.

Question

Don't motorhomes cost a lot to run?

Answer

Most Avida motorhomes are turbo diesels and use fuel very economically. We did a fuel economy run supported by the NRMA and from the 23' Birdsville, we achieved 11.34litres per 100km over 1500 kilometres – pretty good, (mostly cheaper than towing a caravan). That's about 25 miles per gallon in the old language.

Question

Do I need a truck licence to drive a motorhome?

Answer

Mostly not! Licences are governed by weight, not length, width, height or other criteria (buses and articulated vehicles excepted). A car licence is fine for a vehicle up to 4.5 tonnes GVM so our Escape, Diversion,Birdsville, Eyre, Ceduna and Esperance (most models) models are all OK on a car licence. Our bigger models, Longreach, and Classic all require a MR licence as their GVM is just over 8 tonnes and our Menindee requires an LR licence.

Question

Will motorhomes get into Caravan/RV Parks?

Answer

All caravan/RV parks can take most of our model range easily, remember that a caravan and towing vehicle coupled together is far longer than most of our motorhomes. Even our larger models are well catered for by 90% of caravan/RV parks as they realise they risk losing a lot of business if they didn't. However you don't need to stay in a Caravan/Rv park to enjoy motorhoming as motorhomes are self contained find a beautiful outlook stay to admire it and wake up the next day.

Question

Are motorhomes expensive to insure?

Answer

People are surprised usually, to find that comprehensive insurance on their motorhome is often far less than they pay for their car. As a rule of thumb, the cost to insure a motorhome is about 0.7% of the value and if you insure through Avida Insurance, your contents insurance is increased automatically to $10,000.

Question

Do you have a motorhome that fits under my carport?

Answer

Probably not as it seems most carports are about 2.8 metres, however the Eyre range comes in at 2.75 meters, the rest of the range is higher. Motorhomes can stand the weather and they are best off travelling the countryside anyway so they do not need to be kept under cover. We can arrange a custom made motorhome cover if you need it covered while it is stored.

Question

Do you need to tow a car?

Answer

Not really. These days, motorhomes drive like cars and have all the electronic devices like cars, so treat it as your car. Sure, you may take up a couple of spots in the supermarket car park, but the best bit is, when you drive out in the morning to explore the local area and you find a magic spot 100km up the road, stay there because you have your food, your drinks, clothing, even your fishing rods on board and the motorhome is designed for free camping so you don't need power or water.

Question

Can motorhomes tow a car?

Answer

Most of our motorhome chassis are rated to tow a maximum 3.5 tonnes subject to the tow ball, and they have the power to do it effortlessly. So whether you tow a trailer, flat tow or use a caddy, our motorhomes can cope very well.

Question
