    Been many times with a 32 and then a 34 footer + motrobike rack (so approx 36ft).
    Never used anything other than municiples and never had a problem.:thumb:
    "Castles" cost a bomb IMHO.:Eeek:

    Hi Zazkar, would certainly agree about the cost of Castles.. we generally use aires..

    if you pass on details of any municipals that can defo take a 36ftooter I'll add them to the afore mentioned map .. much appreciated.

    Blimey mate! I'll have to trawl my memory banks!:Rofl1:
    ffi's probably the one to ask but I'll gladly see what I can come up with. :thumb:
    In all honesty, in 10 years of RV ownership, I can only think of one or two instances when we couldn't actually get on the Municiple we were heading for that day.
    Having said that, ffi' and i always do last week Aug/first week Sept cos we like it quiet.
    I'll see what I can come up with.:thumb:

    2 municipals would take a large outfit - Malicorne about 20 miles SW. OF Le Mans a delightful site on the banks of a river , Falaise in Normandy closish to Caen site itself good a little tight but manouevrable for immediate access , private site in Brittany called Le Valeen near to Tregastel - excellent position . Municipals approx 20 euro max (4 people+dogs) Valeen probably about 25 max. Obviously many hundreds more to choose from if you narrow it down a bit more:Smile: Alan

    Hi

    I've tried to locate the two municipals on Google map but the resolution isn't clear enough to locate exactly without an address, can you have a look and give me the GPS ? If you click on the location then click 'where is' the GPS will go into the address bar

    I think this is it at Malicone

    Malicorne - Google Maps

    but no idea where the site is in Falaise

    cheers

    Malicorne =correct , Falaise -dunno how to get coords of Google map but address is Rue Val d'ante --- its very close walkable into Falaise itself approx. 20km south of Caen a fairly largish town N158 is close. I will try to find the one near to Tregastel because its excellent---- its close to the village of Plougrescant,Cotes d'Amor. I have these in a book but after a quick argument we cannot find the book ah well ,i will post it asap.:cry::cry:Alan sorry Jim

    Hi .. cheers found it, great location but looks tight, as you say 25ft max, so I won't put it on the RV map .. it's in the black book for later use .. :Wink:
