Australia-based Belmont Leisure, a newcomer to the motorhome industry, has introduced a shared ownership scheme that it says is “a move away from traditional ownership”
According to Out & About Live, the company is offering a plan where customers buy into a three-year scheme, with the option to pay in one upfront fee or a lower fee plus additional monthly payments.

Customers will part-own a motorhome, with all cleaning and maintenance costs included in the package.
