    Caravanners around the UK are set to benefit from a new deal struck between an industry organisation and a chain of roadside eateries.

    The Caravan Club and restaurant firm Roadchef have agreed a deal which will see the latter make its sites more accessible to those with motorhomes and tourers.

    Interesting.

    bearing in mind artic and hgv drivers already use roadchef and although we have only a small motorhome we've never had a problem getting parked, so what exactly are they going to do to make it "more accessible"?

    It's a very interesting equation.

    Roadchef prices as eye watering ( not without reason ).

    Caravans don't have to pay Roadchef prices. DIY

    So any tuggers they can get through the door for more than a pee is a big bonus.

    I don't know why anyone would eat in a roadchef with their dire food quality which probably makes you needs their toilet facilities to chuck up in.

    Really not a very nice experience. Pull in a cook your own! That is why you have a motor home!:thumb:

    Is this the start of an 'aire' scheme. Dump stations,EHUs, and water points-I'll believe it when I see it.

    would that not be good

    Now that would be a good idea...came across a petrol station in St Flour in France that had all the dump and water facilities.. but it would be good over here if you could in fact find a caravan / motor home parking spot that did not have trucks in it... oh yes Cambridge Services have a dedicated caravan area that trucks cannot get into.. does not stop land rover owners walking the dog or white van man.. but does stop the polish lorries. Me use my own facilities, that is what it is about having a yank.. we have all the mod cons.. just need to let Ezzie have a wee.. and time for a brew up.

    But do not stop long.. the fine is high and ranks as bad as the food.
