    The trouble with books is that they are out of date by the time the ink is dry ... on subjects like this anyway.

    What @chaser meant to say was that if you use Campercontact you can download maps of every European country so no internet connection, or out of date books required.
    Please excuse his oversight

    Could tell you , but don't know if he wants to get into arguments about his site , think he just wants to be a motorhomer on fun, but if you do a search on recent references to searchforsites you might find him, he's only been on a couple of weeks.

    Joking aside
    If you only want to stay on 'propper' campsites in the U.K. You need to be a member of the Caravan Club (or the other one) as their sites are only open to members.
    No harm in joining for a year and see how you get on.
    They offer a book for members too

    Hi Mike
    I'm not the best person to ask as I don't spend much time on campsites in the UK
    Maybe worth joining both for just one year - then decide for yourself
    Enjoy your travels !

    @easy :whistle:
    I wonder how many users know he uses the databases without the copyrighters permission... and if they do know, do they care?

    As an aside - am I complicit in copyright theft if I'm a member of CC and C&CC as well as a purchaser of the Britstop book?
    I have a right to that info but not, perhaps, via that particular app.
