    Or half timers
    Wondering what we can expect ?
    Possibility of not more than three months in any country like in the States?
    Will it affect you?

    as I understand it, that's the rule now.. 90 days visiting .. then you have to register in that country

    not that it's adhered to ..

    example .. France

    For stays of longer than 3 months, contact the French Embassy for information about entry requirements.https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/france/entry-requirements

    The answer to this, as for every other question asked in the past 4 months, is no-one knows.

    But for me, as a true full-timer, the next step if a trip to Cahors to check on the rules for applying to become French (but with an eye on who knows what I will probably stay Brit as well).

    I remember being told about this when we were full time ..

    to get around was told to
    jump over a border then come back.. how they check up on you I don't know..

    Staying for longer than 3 months

    If you’re planning to stay in Spain for longer than 3 months you must register in person at the nearest Office for Foreigners (Oficina de Extranjeros) which is normally part of the Town Hall (Ayuntamiento), or at designated Police stations.

    If you plan to live in Spain, visit the British Embassy website for advice and information.

    Unless the open interior borders in the Schengen area are closed again; a Brit, once inside could stay as long as he liked. That is until all those cameras are hooked up across Europe and any roadside copper will let know your precise movements over time.

    For some time now I have flown home every 90 days. I keep my boarding pass as proof of same. It is surprising how cheaply you can get flights if booked well enough in advance. It keeps the travel and household insurance sweet. Many dont bother, but I know for a fact they are cracking down on it in Benidorm.

    Interesting question -one I'm not experienced enough to comment on - my thoughts are what sort of welcome awaits full timers , part timers or any UK motorhomers come to that in a little whiles time after their sudden shock of Brexit and when than turns quite possibly to Anger when their currency drops and their whole economy suffers as ours surly will and has!!

    could also become harder to get fully comp insurance for vehicles or even third party . border insurance could be the way.
    there is also will uk allow our pet dogs back in to uk.
    we could imagine all sorts of problems . yet hardly any might happen .
    duty paid items from eu could be restricted again . importing vehicles from eu could be almost stopped .
    what bothers you the most and i,m sure we can frighten you with a made up story.
    but remember we have to be competitive in the world pay cuts etc are certainly required if we are going to be . plus many are going to learn to sweep the floor wash the toilet doesnt matter even if they have a degree if you cant do them things you might be sacked or not employed.

    Things only worry you if you let them...

    Thirty days, ninety days, one year, six years... how does any country (other than the Disunited Kingdom) know how long I have been staying there?

    Some folk take full notice of every single rule, by-law and regulation, even to the extent of only opening their cornflakes' box where it says "Open This End" and some folk just get on with relaxing, thinking a lot and looking after their lettuces. ;)

    I think the answer will be "wait and see" as no one knows the terms of the divorce yet - or who will be doing the negotiating.

    Once we know that it will be time to start making representations to the powers that be for this to be taken into consideration.

    If your dream full-timing MH is imported to the UK (many are) and sterling stays low you'll be paying more for it.
