The title says it all, in the case of a few exceptional circumstances, having a WC and a shower to accompany you on your road trip is a very good idea. The fact they’ve managed to squeeze one into the compact Rimor Horus 45 with space to sleep 4 is remarkable.

Motorhome Rental

Four of five of Southcampers fleet are classed as motorhomes, in so far as they’re a union of a cab and a chassis with living quarters -at this stage, it’s probably worth explaining that a campervan is a van that has had its load area fitted out with a bed, kitchen, table, bathroom and so on.

Their range of motorhomes covers a different number of price points and can accommodate as many as 6 of you so, for the self-drive holidaymaker, it’s a question of balance between requirement and budget. Have fun choosing the right one!

  • Low Profile Motorhome (Kayak 12 & 14): From the exterior, the Kayak 12 and 14 are remarkably similar but it’s a different story on the inside, save the bathroom and kitchen. The 12 sleeps ‘2 to 4’ and the 14 sleeps 4 and comes with a garage for a scooter.
  • Coachbuilt/Cab Over Motorhome (Kayak 5 & 7): The protrusion over the cab isn’t there merely for show, it can take a double bed at a push, which means that nine times out of ten, cabovers will have more sleeping space. Both sleep 6, the Kayak 5 has room for a garage.

Autocaravan Express, Madrid Motorhome Rental

Day Trips around Madrid

As befitting the country’s capital and one of the most visited destinations in Western Europe, Madrid brims with museums and galleries that to truly give them justice, a few days’ exploration in your Madrid motorhome rental is in order. While it cannot match the artistic collection of Paris, Madrid’s Prado Museum is home to a veritable gathering of Goya, Velazquez, Raphael, Rubens and Rembrandt. The Reina Sofia National Art Center, on the other hand, showcases Spain’s distinguished sons Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro and Salvador Dali.

Your campervan rental in Madrid can take you to Toledo, an hour south, on a great day excursion made special by Toledo’s Roman ruins as well as its Arab, Jewish, and Christian influences on culture and architecture. Once overlooked, Toledo now copes with a steady stream of tourists especially during summer months when competition for accommodation is fierce. With a Madrid motorhome rental, you can secure yours without having to splurge on your budget.

Take a Trip Back in Time

Another memorable trip by campervan hire in Madrid is to the royal monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial. Now a resort destination where hotels and restaurants flourish, it was originally founded as an aristocratic get away.

With your camper rental in Madrid, drive to nearby Aranjuez, a Castilian town, less than an hour south, that sits where the Tagus and Jarama rivers meet. To see well-preserved 11th century walls that encircle an entire town, head to Avila a little over an hour northwest. About a two hour ride away and you will reach Cuenca, a medieval town, once ruled by the Moors and is famous for its cliffhanging houses that rise up multiple terraces.

Top 10 Places to Visit near Madrid

Before we get into this, spend some time in Madrid, it’s a wonderful city but probably won’t require much in the need of a campervan or motorhome, so park up at a recommended campsite -we’ve some suggestions further down the page- and go for your life.

When you’re done, here’s a list of ten recommended places to check out. We strongly suggest you connect them up with a scenic drive or two (we have a couple to get you started) so you don’t find yourselves going back and forth unnecessarily. Enjoy!


Aka the city of three cultures courtesy of the Christians, Muslims and Jews who shaped this beautiful city with their respective buildings, buildings that are sufficiently extravagant to earn Toledo the honour of being a world heritage site by UNESCO. It’s not alone either, stick around for some more.


The short scenic drive from Madrid to Segovia takes in the stunning Guadarrama Mountains and is a great way for self-drive holidaymakers to get a taste of the Spanish roads.

Once at Segovia, sitting in perfect splendour at1000 metres above sea level, you’ve centuries of history to explore.


Probably best known for its 11th-century city wall and, like Toledo, Avila can claim world heritage status.

This fascinating city sits atop a high plateau sheltered by the rolling hills of the Sierra Gredos Mountains and is a great place to visit for fans of medieval architecture.


More UNESCO shenanigans in Salamanca, and we’re trying to work out of any other city in Europe can claim to be characterised by Romanesque, Gothic, Moorish, Renaissance, Baroque monuments, and be so gorgeous at the same time. You can ponder on that for free when you visit.

Ribera del Duero

You don’t want to be at Ribera del Duero figuring out where to park after sampling some of the regions famous wines.

Ribera y Rueda was bestowed the Denominación de Origen (D.O.) status in the 1980s, so leave the motorhome rental somewhere safe before getting stuck in.

San Lorenzo de El Escorial

Another world heritage site, this is almost getting embarrassing for other places in Europe, and if you only have to see one historically charged building in Madrid, make it this one.

The San Lorenzo de El Escorial can be seen in less than a day and it’s awe-inspiring.

La Mancha

Scenic drive heads up! The drive from Madrid to La Mancha is good on its own or part of a wider route.

Either way, take some time out to embrace La Mancha and her legendary windmills, made famous by Miguel de Cervantes through his enigmatic hero, Don Quixote.


UNESCO World Heritage Site; check, multicultural heritage; check, beautiful, ancient buildings; check… We’re not getting complacent, there is so much to see in Spain and Cordoba is no exception.

Go there for Patios de Córdoba in the second week of May and enjoy the floral aroma in residential courtyards.


Fantastic food unique to the region and seven kilometres of beach on which to enjoy 300 days per year of sunshine.

Culturally, all the usual suspects are present in the buildings, but Valencia is a very modern city too with great nightlife. Park up the motorhome rental: go party.


One of the world’s greatest cities, Barcelona needs little or no introduction from us, and not many cities can claim to be immortalised in song by Freddie Mercury.

Start off at the Sagrada Família and take it from there, it’s a perfect city in which to just hang out.

Explore Spain’s South Coast by Motorhome Rental

For more than just a quick dip into Moorish architecture and influences, perhaps a longer road trip down to Andalusia is in order. The trip to the Andalusian capital, Seville, is just five hours to the south by RV rental or campervan hire. Here, you will get to witness the spirited flamenco dancing, matador-instigated bullfighting, the portentous pageantry of Semana Santa (Easter Week celebrations), and a hodgepodge of Roman, Islamic, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque artistic and architectural elements packed in one city. A short drive farther south to Jerez de la Frontera brings you to the world’s Sherry capital and center of Andalusian flamenco and horse culture.

Then, with your Madrid motorhome rental, you can drive round the Mediterranean coasts of jetset favorite Costa del Sol and up to the autonomous community and third largest city of Valencia, known for its festive tomato fight La Tomatina and characteristic cuisine ‘paella.’ Break up the six-hour journey in your campervan rental in Madrid by enjoying the D.O. (designation of origin) wines of Jumilla, the fruits and cheeses of Murcia, the sundrenched and less-traveled coast of Costa Calida, and the frenetic beach- resort towns of Alicante.

Best RV Campgrounds & Campsites near Madrid

You’ve hired a poptop, it’s loads of fun, but it’s got no WC or shower, so a campsite is a logical proposition. What you might not realise are all the little benefits of spending a portion of your self-drive vacation hanging out in a campsite.

For a start, they’re a lot safer than parking up by a busy road and, over and above a shower block or two, many offer surprisingly high levels of comfort. But the reason everyone should stay in at least one campsite is for the little nuggets of advice: you’d be amazed what you might learn.

Camping International Aranjuez

Ctra. Antigua Nacional IV, Km. 46,800 28300 Aranjuez, Madrid, Spain

There are two swimming pools at Camping International Aranjuez, one for the kids and one for the grown-ups and, if you’re still reading this as opposed to frantically trying to book a site, it’s got a kid’s park with entertainment and activities for the whole family.

La Fresneda Camping

km 19,500, M-608, 28791 Soto del Real, Madrid, Spain

La Fresneda Camping claims to be both family-friendly yet quiet and peaceful. Leisure time is dominated by the local nature and wildlife, there aren’t any swimming pools or playgrounds here, this is all about long walks and enjoying the scenery. Great for families who like a bit of P&Q.

Camping Piscis

Carretera de Guadalix M-625 a, Calle Navalafuente, Km 3, 28729 Madrid, Spain

Mash up the two campsites above and you’ve probably got Camping Piscis, which boasts plenty of natural treats while providing facilities and activities for the kids/adults (playgrounds, pools, sports facilities etc) and 200 to 400 m2 sites equipped with water/waterpipes and for your motorhome rental.

Camping Madrid Monte Holiday

Finca El, Calleja del Tercio Nuevo, s/n, 28739, Madrid, Spain

At Camping Madrid Monte Holiday there’s an adventure park with kayaking, a zip line to amuse/terrify the children, a school farm with a storytelling flavour and a swimming pool in which to cool your heels.

There’s even a restaurant if you fancy a night away from the motorhome galley.

Camping Resort El Escorial

Carretera M-600, Km 3.5, 28280 El Escorial, Madrid, Spain

We mentioned El Escorial as one of the top places to visit in Madrid. Camping Resort El Escorial is next door and couldn’t be more different with its three swimming pools and thrilling waterslides.

Don’t tell the kids if you’re not planning on going, they’ll never forgive you.
