    Title says it all really? whats the best for a rookie motorhomer soon to pick up his first van end of this month? This club membership info needed is because I said I was a member of a club for my MOHO insurance. and ill join the right one based on your expert knowledge. Mainly going to be travelling in europe

    So what is best folks? CC or C&CC???

    Cheers, Gary

    Have a look at the MCC as well. Much more suited if they count and better VFM as well.

    C&CC for me, as a solo elderly traveller it is far cheaper. I am not renewing my membership with the CC,

    I'd ask your insurers how much you save by being a member of either.
    Both are expensive to join and expensive to stay.
    Britstops may be an option to consider
    Happy travels !

    We are members of the CC and do use them regularly ! They do small 5van sites called CLs which are cheaper . We like them but many on here have other opinions!!

    Have been a member of both for many years including 25 years with the Caravan Club. However we have not rejoined the Caravan Club only the Camping Club. Mainly because we use a few of the Temporary Holiday Sites of the Camping Club which are reasonable. Also we have Motorhome, car and house insurance with them.

    C&CC! CC is too formal and regimented.
    Defeated my object of motorhoming freedom.

    Both. They are cheap as part of motorhome ownership costs.

    Mixed bag so far, The MCC looks great, but not to be able to stuff on line, that's now a non starter which is a real shame so someone on here who's in, why not give them a bit of feedback. Of course may be exactly what they want of course, selective membership.

    CC seems to get a bit of bad press all round on here, but I love the CL sites idea.

    C&CC is cheaper and seems like has lots of "defectors" from CC....... Choice??? Oh my, what's a girl to do?...

    We have belonged to both for years and each have had sites where we have wanted them in the past. They both have faults and are getting less like clubs and more like business ventures. We are about to add the MCC to the list to see what they are like. Membership of any of them is not expensive and worth it for the benefits that they bring plus access to the sites and CL's. They are also lobbyists for the benefit of campers of all sorts.

    The MCC only needs the postal joining for the first time then it's DD. I also was put off by this but once joined have never thought that we did not get good use of it in the last 5 years membership.
    Best value by far and the meetings are usually turn up if and when you like and I have never paid more than £12 a night and that's sometimes including professional entertainment (y)
    I am also in the CC but every year have to think hard about renewing but usually do as they have a site that is very useful for our plans.
    I have thought about the CCC but they have many sites that you HAVE TO book 2 or 3 days so overnight stopovers are impossible.

    I agree with you all the way. Each of the big two provide what we have always wanted.
    CLs through the CC but their Club Site fees put us off using them very often.
    Temp Hols Sites and Weekend Meets with the C&CC are always good value. Age concession on C&CC Club sites makes them far cheaper than CC but they are becoming more regimented these days with which way you may pitch. You use to be able to pitch at right angles, but not anymore.

    Why not join both and see what sites you use during the year then make your mind up

    Neither of them I though Adolf died in his bunker, not reproduced by the busload for use in other places. Some private sites are even worse.

    Many insurers will accept motorhomefun as a club for their purposes.
    Worth checking with them before spending forty odd quid.

    It is a recognised motorhome club which carries paid membership....and its only £15.
