Choose your Ride

You’re out on a road trip. Clearly, you are an adventurer. But that doesn’t mean you are trying to relive your college days when piling into your friend Greg’s four-door was considered acceptable to your personal space and your back. Now you have a family and don’t have to split gas money six ways to get there. And just because you can’t sit still at home, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t enjoy a comfortable ride.

Yes, I’m talking about motorhome seats. Those things come standard, right? Not so! There’s actually a wide variety of seating options to sit, lounge and lay in. A great motorhome set-up has a full collection composed of some or all of the available types of seats.

Captain Seats

This chair is for the independent type who enjoys his or her space. It’s a good thing there’s no one to fight over the armrest with. It’s a fixture of the theater, the car and the motorhome for good reason. Captain seats utilize space efficiently so you can bring more friends along for the ride.

Barrel Chairs

Anyone who appreciates any form comfort takes will enjoy the cloud of extra cushion and chair surface the barrel chair brings. These offer your passengers more space to spread out. You went with the motorhome instead of the van for a reason, now you might as well take advantage.

Swivel Recliners

This is the chair that the kid’s dibs in the living room and are then forced to clear out when dad arrives. Same rules apply in the motorhome. The swivel recliner allows you to sit straight when you set out and stretch out and take it easy later on. You can see the whole country from your armchair, instead of adding yet another kink to your back pain. Thanks, Greg!

Sofa Beds

Don’t mind those red cars racing past you in the fast lane—you have the best convertible on the road. The pull-out is a must-have for traveling families, giving your motorhome a second bed when you settle down the for the night. And the “fold and tumble” style is a great option for saving space. During the drive, the sofa bed gives passengers a space to pal around unrestricted, or a single leisurely traveler the room to lounge around and take in a book comfortably.


You don’t have to miss out on family dinner just because life on the road makes eating an Olympic sport. The dinette builds a table into your motorhome. Go ahead, order that messy meal. Eat your Chinese with chopsticks. Make a full spread. With a dinette, you don’t have to eat the burrito in its paper sleeve and still spill cheese and lettuce all over the carpet.

What about the Material?

Are you a fan of a classic style? Do you want your motorhome to look like a motorhome, stretched out in a comfortably furnished area? Or do you want a level of softness? Sleek or cuddling? The reason we ask is that you can choose either leather or fabric for any of your motorhome seating selections. See Techsafe Seating for all motorhome seats for sale.

You’ve chosen the types of seats based on the number of members in your family and their personalities. Now, with this seating settled, you’re off to see the world in convenience, comfort, and style!

What to do with the Kids when out Riding?

If you are searching for childcare in North Rockhampton, you may have to take time out to consider whether you should choose a daycare that is close to your work, or close to your home. There are advantages and disadvantages to both locations, and it really comes down to what your personal preferences are. However, before you choose a location near your home or a location near your work, you should know the pros and cons of both options.

By making an informed decision, you are more likely to be happy with your decision than if you were to make the decision blindly, or spur of the moment.

Choosing a Daycare Near Your Work or Near Your Home

When you are choosing between a having the daycare near your home, or near your work, you may be a little intimidated. This is a big decision that cannot be made blindly. You should weigh the pros and cons of each location before you make your decision

  • Positives of Each Daycare Option

There are positives to having your child’s daycare near your home, and there are positives to having your child’s daycare near your work. Overall, it is a personal decision that involves weighing your personal feelings, as well as convenience.

Having your child’s daycare near your home can provide a number of conveniences. Your child can get to know people in their immediate area, making it more likely for them to develop long-term friends that will eventually go to school with them. It also makes it more likely that the children they invite to birthday parties will be able to attend. If you need to run a lot of errands, your child may prefer to spend the day at the childcare facility, rather than spend the day running to different office buildings.

If your child’s daycare is near your work, you can easily reach them if you need to. If your child becomes ill, you can pick them up faster, provide more comfort in their time of need. You can also visit your child during lunch if their teacher contacts you to say they are missing you a lot in a given day. Your child will also spend less time at daycare. Since you will pick them up right after work and they will make the commute with you, they will be able to spend more one on one time with you.  You will also have the advantage of your child playing with the children of other employees, potentially strengthening your work relationships.

  • Negatives of Each Daycare Option

Just like there are positives to every situation, there are some downfalls to each daycare option. Again, you will need to weigh these options against your own feelings and personal preferences.

Having your child’s daycare center near your home means that your child will have to stay at daycare longer, while you commute home. Your child may experience some distress from being away from you for a full day’s work, as well as the time it takes you to commute back and forth to work.

Choosing a daycare that is close to your work might mean that your child cannot make long-term friends, which are important at a young age. Children rely on stability and a familiar face. This means that when they transition from daycare into preschool or kindergarten, they will have to start completely from scratch.
