Buying a Motorhome or Campervan in France

Our motorhome hire operation caters very well for anyone who wants to use a motorhome for a limited period without the challenges of ownership but we are frequently asked if we have a solution for people who want to buy, register and insure a motorhome here.

Whether you are from overseas or resident here in Europe, the registration process here can be difficult to understand, especially if you don’t speak fluent French.  On our vehicle sales website, we have outlined the vehicle registration criteria for both residents and non-residents.

We also explain our unique scheme for non-residents to legally register a vehicle here and show the likely costs of ownership so you can truly assess whether buying a vehicle for a longer trip is the right choice for you.
