Where to Stay in a Motorhome

Owning a motorhome gives you a lot of independence; it’s easy to pick up and drive off for a holiday whenever you want to. However, you should put a little consideration into where you’ll park when you get there.

It’s a good precaution to check and book your camp sites before arrival whenever possible; while there are plenty of RV-friendly campsites throughout the country, with large pitches that are suitable for even the biggest American motorhomes, some may have limited space and in the height of summer are likely to be in high demand. Wild camping – overnight parking in places not designated as campsites – is generally illegal in England and Wales, and in some council areas there is a strict zero tolerance towards overnight parking in lay-bys or car parks.

Parking in a properly equipped campsite has other advantages – whilst your motorhome comes equipped with a lot of home comforts, you do need to find somewhere to stop every so often to fill up your fresh water and empty your waste tanks, and a well equipped camp site will also often have electricity and television hook-ups as well.

If you take your motorhome north of the border, you’ll be able to truly make the most of it; in most of Scotland, wild camping is permitted, which means that you can park wherever you please and enjoy some truly beautiful scenery. Of course, common sense applies; you should park away from houses and farms, don’t park on private land without permission or block roads, and make sure that the land is left as you found it – don’t dump any litter or waste.

If you take your motorhome abroad to the continent, you’ll be able to look for “aires” – these are campsites specifically designed for motorhomes, ranging from small private sites to large purpose built ones. Look for “aires de service” if you want facilities; “aires de stationement” are designed only for parking. You’ll be able to find such sites throughout France, Spain, Portugal and many other countries, and many are free or require only a small donation so they make ideal stops on an extended tour.

Wherever you plan to go, choosing from our range of new and used motorhomes, both American and European, gives you the freedom to do so in comfort and even luxury. For more information or to arrange a viewing at our showroom, contact us today.
