    Hi everybody,
    I am from Australia and an avid caravan user over here. I will be travelling to the UK in May 2012 and looking to hire a motor home for 2-3 weeks to see the country. Can anyone suggest a reputable hire company or let me know if they know any members who hire out privately. There will be just my wife and myself travelling and spending the biggest portion of the trip down south with a possible trip to Cumbria to visit friends. Do you have many RV parks throughout the country and what is May like for touring. We travel mainly through our winter and head north towards the sun and some warm weather.
    Regards and best wishes,
    Geoff Wiles (geolin3@bigpond.com)

    Hi and welcome to the site. Firstly there are many Caravan sites around the UK, though quite a few are members only. hiring a motorhome could well be a problem with regards to insurance. This has come up before and not sure if it was ever solved.
    I think maybe Peter is not asleep, possibly there is an insurance problem with hiring to non British residents.

    Hi Geoff,

    You may find problems getting insurance cover being a non UK resident and an Australian licence, daft seeing as we Brits don't have a problem hiring in Oz.

    You could email us with your details and Gill will see if it is possible.

    Peter
