We all know that owning a motorhome means you can go almost anywhere and be able to stay in different locations surrounded by home comforts. It’s convenient and can somewhat reduce the stress of organising a family trip, especially if you look after your motorhome and have it serviced regularly.
Motorhomes have been a great part of family fun for years, so much so that they’ve become a focal point in some popular films.
These are some of our favourites:
Meet The Fockers (2004)
Who can forget this comedy classic with Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro? With two families about to become in-laws, they decide to spend some time together. Jack Byrnes (De Niro) chooses to meet everyone in his brand new motorhome, or RV if you’re American! Cue a whole host of dramas and hilarious events that occur along the way.
We’re The Millers (2013)
In one of the latest films to include a motorhome, David (Jason Sudeikis) packs his fake family into a motorhome to cross the border into Mexico to pay off his debts to a thug after being robbed and losing his stash. To escape any suspicion, his fake family are supposed to act as a smokescreen and portray an image of a happy family off for a holiday. Safe to say it doesn’t all go exactly to plan!
About Schmidt (2002)
Jack Nicholson faces a crossroads in his life when losing his wife just after purchasing their first motorhome. He decides to take a journey in it to visit his estranged daughter and convince her not to marry her fiancé as he feels she can do much better. An entertaining film that showcases the best use for a motorhome; reconnecting with family.
Comedy duo Simon Pegg and Nick Frost team up as two sci-fi enthusiasts who are on their way to San Diego’s Comic-Con in their rented motorhome. However, an alien named Paul (Seth Rogen) who has been living in a military base in America has had enough of Earth and hops on the first handy vehicle to escape – no guesses as to which vehicle that is! What follows is a crazy plan to help Paul return to his spaceship.
Breaking Bad (2008-2013)
This one’s not a film, but has to be included! While it may not be the most legal or recommended use of a motorhome, you can’t ignore the phenomenon that was Breaking Bad. An ex-high school teacher and a dropout student team together to make a fortune from making illicit substances. A TV show that gripped the nation with each episode, the motorhome was the home for their activities to avoid getting caught. While it’s certainly an entertaining programme, we ask that you don’t try this at home!
