At the heart of the campaign freedomtogo.co.uk offers guidance and advice to help consumers discover and plan new adventures. The campaign also shows how a motorhome or caravan can enable many activities, such as surfing, and draw on the appeal of the great outdoors and the freedom to explore, that owning a leisure vehicle presents.
The term 'Leisure vehicle' encompasses trailer tents, touring caravans, motorhomes, campervans caravan holiday homes, lodges and camping pods.
