  1. Quite a mix of campsites there!!! The only one I have been to id Briarfields at Cheltenham which is a nice enough little site and from a motorhome point of view handy for public transport. Not sure I would rate as high as you do but it is a nice enough site. Pictures here http://www.davidklyne.co.uk/briarfields_touring_park.html David
  2. No Overnight Parking

    Brian Have you seen this http://www.motorhomeparking.co.uk/ This might help with a few ideas. Club sites are generally quiet at night. You might even like CL's and CS's which are only 5 van sites many with limited facilities and inexpensive. David
  3. Gordon Our Peugeot can always seems to have a slightly nose down attitude but it doesn't always means it needs levelling at the front. Many hardstanding pitches have a slight downwards position to aid drainage so maybe why you see so many with ramps? David
  4. Is this forum still used?

    I look in everyday but don't always have anything to post!!! David
  5. Camping El Porto de la Selva, Girona.

    Brian Funny that you mentioned about the extra charge for the scooter. Someone on the CMC forum was complaining that when they were going to a CL they wanted to charge £5 a night extra for the car he was towing behind his motorhome!!! David
  6. Low Emission Zones

    I am used to these zones in Germany where they often only apply to relatively small areas around the centre of a city or town. Not quite sure of the extent of them in France as we haven't been since they were introduced. I do have a CRIT air sticker which is Yellow. David
  7. Brian Excellent report. David
  8. Spanish Road Trip

    Brian Sounds an interesting trip and will look forward to your reviews. Did I get the impression, previously, that you were looking to move to Spain? David
  9. From the IOW we headed for Poole where we stayed at South Lytchett Manor campsite. It is well known and has won many awards and as a result is pretty popular. Hourly bus service from immediately outside the gates to Poole or Swanage. Good pub in the village of Lytchett Minster, down forget your voucher from the campsite for a free bottle of wine! Good quality facilities. http://www.davidklyne.co.uk/south_lytchett_manor.html David
  10. This was the second site of our trip. Must be the shortest trip we have ever done from a ferry to a campsite, half a mile! All the hardstanding pitches are serviced with water and waste. As a result there is no dedicated motorhome waste point as there is no need.Downhill walk to East Cowes where there is a handy Waitrose, but a hard slog back up!!! . Good bus service to Newport which is the main transport hub for the Island with onward services to everywhere. Nice views out over the Solent http://www.davidklyne.co.uk/waverley_park.html
  11. Chichester C&CC Site

    We have just returned for a short tour of the central south coast. Our first stop was here. Nice little site with just over 50 pitches. No motorhome waste point is perhaps its only downside. Very good public transport between Chichester and Portsmouth. Pub within walking distance. http://www.davidklyne.co.uk/chichester_ccc_site.html David
  12. A-Frames

    Whilst I do use the correct signal board on the back of the motorhome if I have the bikes I don't use beam deflectors. There is no requirement by law to do so only that you must not dazzle oncoming traffic. I don't drive at night but recognise that there will be times when lights are require in daylight hours. I set my lights to the lowest setting to the road.I have travelled through quite a few two way tunnels in Austria without my lights apparently upsetting oncoming traffic. David
  13. Exchange gas bottle are a problem as the only truly international one is Camping Gaz which is very expensive. Having said that we find that if both cylinders are full we can manage for a couple of months providing we have electricity. David
  14. Using 'Archies' in Europe

    Brian Don't know what sat nav you are using but you do have to change the country first, then it should show POI's for that country. David
  15. Thanks Scania We use one 6kgs lightweight steel and one 10kgs fibreglass( BP Light as was) both are of the exchange variety. Refillable cylinders are getting increasingly popular in the UK just as many filling stations are getting rid of LPG pumps! I think I have read about the six metre length being the most economic on bridges etc. I suspect a lot of caravanners who swap to a motorhome try to replicate the space they had in their last caravan and at a later date realise that perhaps smaller would have been more convenient?
