    How to be a considerate camper?

    Sorry if this has been posted before. As somewhat relatively inexperienced at camping in general (does D of E count?) and also inexperienced at spending time in a camper van, do you have any tips for fitting in, (hopefully) making friends, and generally having a good time (by all of us) on the...

    Holidaying in France post brexit

    We have now shifted our 2020 summer holiday France crossing again from July 2021 to the beginning of next year but I’ve heard that there may be an issue taking ‘personal goods’ to France after brexit with a limit on the total value. When (or at this rate, if) we ever get to go back we will have...

    Flag size

    Right then... I have just purchased a 6m extending flag pole to peg out & wave at everyone at our Forum gatherings. I think a 5' x 3' flag is best. Her 'indoors suggests a 3' x 2' flag will suffice. As a bloke, I think bigger is better. Anybody got any comments?

    Roof-Top Tents

    Hi folks, Is anybody in to roof top tenting? I'm thinking about it for my Caravelle as a substitute for an awning. If I bought an awning I'd be spending a bit less but the quality of roof top tents seems to be far better than an awning, plus it frees up interior space when travelling. If...

    Camping Foot Stools

    Whilst chilling with a beer/wine/gin etc... in our camping chairs, it would be nice to be able to put our feet up on a stool. I've looked on the net and can't seem to find something we like. What do the experienced professional campers recommend?

    Van Friendly Forest Campsites

    Wondering if anyone can recommend a good campsite, preferably southwest UK, with a woodland feel, that's also camper van friendly? I've found lots of woody campsites, but they all seem to have parking at the entrance, i.e. no cars on site. I'm trying to recreate some of the RV experiences I had...

    Tripping campsite electrics

    newbie here so sorry if basic question. Just returned from Spain/France. On a couple of campsites we managed to trip the electric hookup and weren't able to use the site electrics. Only running a fridge/LED lights/water pump/sockets so nothing major. Difficult to work out why our T6 tripped...

    New Business Assistance

    As I mentioned in another thread we have a bit of land, used to run as a livery yard but got fed up with all the small-minded silly horsey twits. At the moment the stables are slowly filling up with mine and my dads accumulations and collections and the paddocks are doing very little. One idea...
