Depending on what side of the fence you sit in there is no denying that the ease and maneuverability of the motorhome does have its perk when touring. Auto-Trail wanted to show the experiences that can be had in a motorhome, so they teamed up with Campervan enthusiast and chef Martin Dorey to see what can be done in the UK with an Imala 732.

In this Auto-Trail video Martin Dorey takes us on a journey round the Cornish coast and shows us how to live off of the land. Martin is a self proclaimed camper van user but he didn't let his allegiance to the camper sway his views and opinions of the new Imala: I am better know as a campervanner. The Imala is big but remarkably versatile. The Imala is nimble and very maneuverable for its size. "With 130 BHP you get enough power for a comfortable motorway drive" added Martin.

With a motorhome comes a lot of freedom to travel around and find out what local activities are on offer. Martin was able to just pull, stop, jump out and crack on with his coastal food hunts. If you had a caravan towing along behind you, you would have to be a bit more careful and plan ahead. Living off the land is made easy when you have a fully moverbale kitchen with a mind for what can be gathered from the land.

From watching the video you can see how a campervan user could be swayed to change their touring vehicle to a motorhome.
