Hello everyone. So glad I found this website... it’s already answered so many of my questions 👍🏼 We’re swapping our tent for a motorhome this year (hiring first) but I have lots of, probably silly, questions. We’re hiring an Autoroller 747 at the end of this month just for 2 nights as a practice run before we go further afield. We don’t want to stay on sites/hook up if we can help if. If we’re not being too conservative, how long will we (2 adults, 2 kids and a dog) be able to last on average off grid?. Let’s say 2 adult showers per day (kids can get washed on sink!), it’ll be cold so heating will be on a fair bit, we’ll take drinking water and will be frugal on the toilet from (3 boys so wild wee’s for them). Will we last Friday pm til Sunday pm without hooking up to anything? We’ll be having a little drive around etc which will help to charge? I think it’s a 100L water tank, solar panels, 3 way fridge etc. We’re totally clueless so any advice will be much appreciated .. ....

Hello welcome aboard. Sounds a sensible option to hire first. You should be good for a couple of days if you top water etc up before you leave. What area are you planning to explore?

You will be fine on gas 13kg should last 10 days with fairly heavy heating and cooking usage ,100 litres of water gives me and missis 4 frugal showers each Limit tv to 2 hours per day and only use lights as ness Bog will be biggest prob. We last 3 days for 2 of us provided I wee outside wild. Have a great trip

It's perhaps a big ask if you are new to motor homing to go off grid straight away. Why not try first night wild then book a site for one night, then you can shower, empty loo ect.
