    Is the ferry for a MH expensive to the IOW?

    A friend recently went with a Ford Fiesta, and it cost over £80! :Eek!:

    Have a look at the Red Funnell deals Craig. You can get 5 nights camping + ferry crossing for about £120. There is plenty to see and do on the Isle of Wight, we are looking to return there in 2012.

    As Brian said, not expensive. We went this year and will be going back in 2012.

    Best route to IOW is via Lymington or Southampton Yosser.

    Do not go via Portsmouth as there are thousands of these ready to go up on lamp-posts.

    The wording says:

    Won't be overheight anymore if you adjust it by driving on a low area of the ferry.

    Hi . I live here ( I o W ) and cant think of a nicer place to spend a few days ,hope you enjoy your visit but dont tell everyone how good it is otherwise there the island might sink!! Island roads are different plenty of potholes ,bends, narrow places and beware!! locals invariably dont signal also they only potter about as in the slow lane. ENJOY !!!

    Hi Yosser . what lenght is your motor home as travelling at night ( if 6mtr or less ) Dream Ticket is about £44 then there's campsite fees. Most campsites on IoW give inclusive costs with ferry. Best campsite is Whitefield forest touring park any other information or ideas just ask. Terry

    I have to agree with Fidget, we stopped there in 2010 and will be returning there this year. We will be booking a Red Funnel camping + ferry deal, about £120 for 5 nights.

    We convinced a friend that she needed her passport and she also put her watch on an hour because of the time difference.
