    I have just learned that it is not permitted to sleep in a motorhome in the region of Asturias in Spain, except on official sites. A fine of €90 is levied to anyone ignoring this legislation. Normally in Spain, unless advised otherwise, you can overnight legally in any recognised parking area but not in Asturias.

    I received this from Arsenio Gutiérrez ex president of La Paca in February this year.

    Unfortunately in Spain laws are not like you the perceived. In fact, the laws of the road apply only to movement and parking of an empty caravan, as a vehicle. But using a motorhome as accommodation is considered under the laws governing same camping. These laws are different in the 17 autonomous communities of Spain who have independence to enact these laws.

    There are also laws that prohibit using a motorhome as accommodation in the area from the coast by a law regulating the use of a dividing strip on the coast. Mainly in Spain prohibition is to spend the night outside a camping protecting the interests of businessmen of camping. In fact, except in the Basque Country and Navarre, spend the night in a motorhome is not legal. But these rules only apply in some locations, in most of the Spanish territory is allowed to stay overnight in a motorhome, but not because it is a right protected by law. The risk of being denounced and punished economically there, especially on the coast.

    The application of laws on camping is used strictly in Asturias, Cantabria and some towns of the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. The municipal areas for motorhomes are exceptions.Instruction 08 / V-74 has no application absolutely in the use of motorhomes as accommodation, only applies to parking under the laws of the road. This is possible in Spain for independence in the regions to make laws on issues such as camping.
