    I have seen a few motorhomes with these on their pitches and am thinking of purchasing one, mainly as we are going off to a much more commercial site and would rather stake a claim to our pitch. Any suggestions or links to where best to buy them. Did a bit of a google search but it's a lottery that way and would rather get one somewhere through someones experience

    do you think that will stop someone removing your sign

    Putting a sign in the ground will not stop someone taking your pitch... I have read many a tale about those that have had there signed, chairs or other items removed off the pitch when they go out of site...

    So a cone or bit of plastic can soon get run over or removed.

    I think that would be a rare happening Bob .. but as you say, won't stop some tosser just ignoring it .. and there are a fair few of them driving about ..

    I recall one time on an aire, a French vanner left his Fiamma levelling ramps.. like everyone else I assumed he had left them to keep his spot .. but after a couple of days it dawned on me (and others) that he must have forgotten them.. and even though the aire was bursting at the seams .. no one moved them until it was obvious he wasn't coming back.

    We bought the one that Jim shows from a CC site last year, £6 paid as someone else said. However, I feel that it needs to be on a taller stick, because there will always be people (who should've gone to Specsavers):Doh: that will just reverse onto a pitch without actually looking properly.

    As another Funster said, no matter what you leave in your space, someone could park in it. It hasn't happened to us yet, but the warden at a CC site said to us that if a tugger reversed onto our pitch, even with the "reserved" sign, they would be allowed to stay, whilst we would need to find another pitch:Angry: Why the warden can't tell new arrivals which pitches are taken already, I don't know:RollEyes:

    I'm thinking of getting a sign with flashing lights on it, just to make sure it's noticed.........grrrrrrr:Doh:

    Landmines would probably work, you'd have to put a sign up first though. The added advantage is that although you would lose the sign if ignored, you would probably improve site etiquette..............and get to meet Joanna Lumley.:BigGrin:

    Morton in (on?) the Marsh,

    "Scuse me! can you get my sign please?"
    "Sign? What sign?"
    "the sign that says this pitch was reserved! the sign you drove over, the sign under yer frigging van yu blind son of a B****"

    Take photo, print photo with suitable caption, 2 sheets of thinish blockboard hinged at top, glue photo to blockboard, laminate, seal edges with varnish, done. 3 days at the full Edinburgh CC site with rain gale force winds, sign still fine. Only use it in Edinburgh, normally just use CL's and aires in France.

    I've found that the only guaranteed way of keeping your pitch is to park a large vehicle, a motor home for example, on it :Smile:
    For the very rare occasion that we leave a pitch, I have an old number plate on a stick. Cost me nothing!

    now if you were to take a toad you wouldn't need a sign as the motorhome would be on the pitch :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    it is a bit like the Germans putting towel on sun beds

    Putting a sign on a pitch you are not on is a bit like the Germans and there towels on sun beds.

    As some have suggested you might need to consider other ways of getting about while you are at a site. I could take my RV off site at Rutland next week (Sunday onwards).. but I will have Sue follow the RV in the Car so we can get off site.. we would have used the trailer, but that is now sold. I know lots have bikes or like to walk... plus others have that lip of metal attached to the tow bar and the front of a car:RollEyes:

    But if you leave a bowl on the sun bed then it may get removed or parked on top of.
