    Hi all,

    I'm about to book at a campsite which is owned by the Camping and caravanning Club. I have a Fiat ducato van conversion by IH motorhomes.

    On the website is this question.
    I have a converted unit – will you accept me on your sites?
    A: If your caravan, motorhome or trailer tent is not of a proprietory make, please send clear photographs to the Club’s UK Club Sites Department, for consideration by the Sites Director.
    Looking at other websites from the club this pops up a lot. Does this mean I am not allowed on ccc sites or have to ask permission or am I reading the question wrong and it doesn't apply to me.

    Has anyone come across this before?

    Many thanks.

    Tec.

    Ok thanks. In fact it is in the Lake District where I am going. I won't worry then. As you can see in my picture it's not in bad condition. I just didn't want them saying "Get off my land" because I don't have a posh coachbuilt :)

    in this instance, the club is referring to home converted vans, not those converted by manufacturers like IH, swift, etc etc

    just ignore it as it is not relevant to your van

    They are trying to prevent peeps from turning up in panel vans with a mattress thrown on the floor and a bucket for a loo claiming that they have a converted van. Nothing to worry about re your booking.

    We live just opposite the C&CC club in Normans Bay and we see al sorts there. Year before last there was a light aircraft fuselage converted to a caravan!! Not much room inside but it looked good. (y)

    Agreed that everyone has to start somewhere but I guess that many sites have had problems with peeps abusing their facilities etc. by turning up in their work's transit with a mattress in the back and a bunch of mates and getting trashed each night. It is also possible that they are trying to make it more difficult for mobile tarmac layers taking over their sites and trashing the place. See other suggestions above. You'll find these conditions common for many sites and festivals so it seems evident that some people have made it more difficult for others.

    Don't think you will find many Tarmac layers paying ccc rates

    When we first started in the 60s in a Austin a 35 van with old corn sacks in the back wouldn't dreamed of paying ccc prices , that was for the elite , we parked anywhere we could, suppose it's called wild camping now , in our day we couldn't afford anything else , remember waking up one morning , half way up horseshoe pass , snowed in over night, them were the days

    I don't think that they will be paying the parking fees down at Brighton either but it doesn't seem to stop them taking over places and trashing them.
