    As far as getting on sites etc., don't think you will see any difference at all except on a few Italian campsites..
    Ferries vary wildly but I don't think you will find much difference after you pass the 6m mark up to the 8m mark. 8m and above can cost significantly on some routes. Height is often significant.
    Tolls mostly count axles never length.
    Tunnels measure height more than length. Most measure the height over the front wheels.:Eeek:
    Best of luck

    24ft is an average length so you wont have any props with uk or french sites.

    i believe the ferry costs increase by around £15 per mtr (or part thereof) over 7mtrs so it may cost £15 more each way.

    Ours is just over 24' and we have never had any problems including the Ferries, Some of the pitches maybe a little tight but never been unable to pitch up.
