As the met office issue a yellow warning for the weekend, with the tail end of hurricane Maria and Lee whipping the UK, our friends at Truma want us remind you that you can still get away in your caravans and motorhomes while staying warm and toasty.

Truma supported Bailey of Bristol and ourselves on this years "arctic adventure" and they have just released the short video demonstrating how well their new Combi system helps in up to -15 degree temperatures. The Combi system kept the crew warm, cosy and clean during their stay.

So if the Combi system can conquer the arctic then surely it can deal all year round with our lovely temperate climate. To inspire you here are some things that are better in bad weather;

  • Scuba diving
  • Surfing
  • Jumping in muddy puddles
  • Kite flying
  • Fishing
  • Grass sledging

Alternatively you can curl up a beautiful spot in your motorhome or caravan and watch the weather pass over rolling hills whilst enjoying a hot chocolate and a whole bag of snacks.
