A semi-integrated motorhome is the ideal choice for a family holiday, couple’s holiday or a holiday with friends. It is spacious with its (usually) maximum weight of 3.5 tonnes, which makes it easy to drive. The main difference between a semi-integrated motorhome and an integrated motorhome is that the living area isn’t in the same area as the driver's seat. In a semi-integrated motorhome there may be a narrow space between the living area and the driver’s seat, which reduces the overall size of the living area.
Depending on the model, semi-integrated motorhomes have a classic layout with a spacious double bed and additional sleeping areas. The vehicle also has a bathroom and sufficient storage space. Below you can find out more about this type of motorhome.

What Is a Semi-integrated Motorhome?
Semi-integrated motorhomes are easily recognisable by their shape and design. The living area is partially integrated into the area where the driver’s seat is. However, the exterior of the vehicle gives the impression that they are completely separate. The driver's and passenger's seats are easy to turn and they can be used as seats at a dining table. Typically, semi-integrated motorhomes offer a spacious and well designed living area with a kitchenette, toilet and seating area. The vehicle can also be equipped with an alcove, which provides an extra sleeping area above the driver’s seat.
Semi-integrated motorhomes have a compact size, but they are still a great choice especially if you don’t want to forgo any comfort. They are easy to drive even for beginners.

Therefore, it is important that you take your time and choose the right model to suit your needs. Below we have listed some useful tips that will help you to choose the right motorhome:

Accessories for Your Semi-Integrated Motorhome

Some rental companies even provide bed linen and towels. As extras, you can also often request kitchen utensils, child car seats and bicycle racks.

Some motorhome rental companies also offer other extras such as a small gas barbecue, a Sat Nav or folding bicycles. Double check before requesting any of these as fees may apply.
The living area in a semi-integrated motorhome doesn’t have an open layout, whereas in an integrated motorhome the living area and driver’s seat are in the same part.
