As of 2011 we have two options for a second vehicle. Depending on where we are going we can choose between:
Towing a 4WD Suzuki Vitara with a 3.75m
boat on the roof (click here to
see photos and details of this setup)
Carrying our Mini Moke inside the motorhome.
Here is a Youtube video that shows the Mini Moke being born from the back of the motorhome.

Engineered by Mark and Gail Bennett, the Mini Moke in the back of the motorhome is a real wonder.
Amazingly, the entire Moke consumes less than a meter of the bus length when stowed. After lowering the rear suspension, the Moke is winched into position under the Queen-sized bed in the bedroom at the back of the motorhome. The only clue from the inside of the motorhome of this secret is that the bed is a little higher than you would expect

We have kept in touch with Mark and Gail and they are always very happy to help out with advice and info - when buying a second hand motorhome, we hope everyone is as lucky as us to get a vehicle from people as helpful as Mark and Gail.
Here is a photo of the car storage area without the Moke. On the right you can see the washing machine. The shelves at the top hold spare parts, our recovery gear and some of our SCUBA gear.
Check out our video tour of the inside of the motorhome here.

Ever wondered why are there Google Ads on the Hobohome Site?
It costs quite a bit of money each year to keep the Hobohome site running.
We have decided to allow advertisements on selected pages of the site to help offset the costs involved
in maintaining and hosting the Hobohome website.

Thanks and happy Motorhoming and Caravanning - Gavin & Tracey.
