Working from a motorhome or campervan while on holiday offers a refreshing change of scenery, an escape from the monotony of the home office or the rigidity of corporate settings. 

It's a chance to explore new places, enjoy different environments, and keep the creative juices flowing, all while staying connected and productive.

Plus, you get to choose your view—be it a tranquil beach, a bustling cityscape, or a peaceful woodland.

Essential Factors to Consider

Before hitting the road, let's consider some essential factors for a smooth and enjoyable workcation experience:

Internet Connectivity:

Reliable internet is a must for remote work. Consider a high-quality mobile Wi-Fi device or a generous mobile data plan. Many UK campsites offer Wi-Fi services, but always check in advance.

Workspace Setup: 

Adapt your motorhome or campervan to create a comfortable workspace. A sturdy table, ergonomic seating, and proper lighting are crucial. Don't forget power sources for charging your devices!

Location Selection: 

Choose a location that inspires you but also meets your practical needs. Many campsites across the UK offer facilities like power hook-ups and Wi-Fi. Research and book ahead, especially during peak season.

Equipping Your Workspace:

In addition to the basics, having the right equipment can make your workcation even more efficient and enjoyable:


Noise-Cancelling Headphones:

These can help block out distracting sounds, allowing you to concentrate on your work.

External Hard Drive: 

An excellent option for backing up work and accessing important files offline, especially when internet connectivity is unpredictable.


Power Converter:

To ensure your devices receive the correct wattage, particularly useful if you plan to charge your devices while driving.

Portable Wi-Fi Extender:

A lifesaver if you find yourself in a location with a weak Wi-Fi signal.

Ergonomic Additions: 

Consider a portable laptop stand, ergonomic keyboard or mouse to make your workspace more comfortable and prevent strain.

Navigating a Workcation with Young Children

Having young children along on your motorhome workcation can be a wonderful experience, but it does require some extra planning and creativity.

Here are some tips to help you manage work and family effectively:

Planning Activities for the Kids:

Keep your children engaged and occupied while you work. Consider bringing along board games, books, craft supplies, or download their favourite movies and games on a tablet. Take advantage of the outdoor space for playtime during your breaks.

Split Parenting Duties:

If you're travelling with a partner, consider alternating your work hours so one can take care of the kids while the other works. This way, your children are always supervised and you can have some uninterrupted work time.

Hire a Babysitter:

Some campsites offer childcare services to help watch the kids for a few hours each day while you work.


Set Boundaries: 

Just as you would set work-life boundaries, it's important to set boundaries with your children. Explain to them your work hours and the importance of quiet time during those hours.

Bonus Tips: 6 Mobile Internet Tips for Working from your Motorhome or campervan:

1 - Assess Your Mobile Data Plan: Evaluate your data plan. Increase your usage allowance to the highest level possible, as data is crucial for successful remote work. Research the plans available and their caps to find the best one for your needs.

2 - Reduce Data Usage: Monitor your data usage carefully and try to reduce it wherever possible. Consider using apps that monitor your internet usage, and consider switching to mobile mode for browsers, which can help save data.

3 - Ensure Online Security: Security is crucial when using mobile internet. Consider using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) for added security. Always use strong, unique passwords and only connect to secure WiFi networks.

4 - Find the Perfect Location to Work: Not all locations will provide the best mobile coverage. Conduct research on your destinations before you travel to ensure that you'll have the internet connection you need for work.

5 - Back Up Your Files: Regularly back up your files to the cloud or an external drive. This protects your data and prevents loss in case of technical issues or security breaches.

6 - Embrace Continuous Education: Keep learning about the best cybersecurity practices and the latest updates to ensure working from your motorhome experience goes smoothly.


A motorhome or campervan workcation can be an enriching and productive experience. By preparing well, having the right equipment, and managing your time effectively, you can enjoy the benefits of work, leisure, and exploration all rolled into one.
