    Hi there..*tentatively steps into the forum*....

    Im at a loss what to do. I have tickets for Glastonbury festival 2010 and need to rent a motorhome for myself, husband and 2 children (one will be 1 year old). Ive looked at the online rental places but they want £1000 plus for the week. Do any of you lovely lot know of anywhere we can rent one for considerably less than that price?

    I hope you can help, otherwise we cant go :cry:
    Thanks :thumb:

    hate to say this but seeing the state things get at that festival i dont think anyone would rent you one for going there, have a look at the link, the music might be good shame the people dont have any respect for things and property, and maybe if they did the entry price wouldnt be so high

    The motorhome section at Glastonbury is separate from the tent area and in a secure area friends of ours in there 70's went last year and had a marvelous time, we tried to get tickets but were to late. Carol.

    Thanks for the PM, I will look them up :thumb:

    Regarding the mess, the campervan field is actually well looked after as almost all the poeple there have their own and people tend to look out for one another. The tv and papers only like to report bad stuff, overall its very friendly. A campervan would be parked up in a field outside of the main fence, so the only people that would be walking past it are the fellow people in their vans too

    Its a shame it gets such a bad press, and we are nice people too that would look after it so well

    I was in the campervan field last year (after many years of camping), and I must say it was very well kept, and very quiet (probably a bit too much so for my liking).
    Having said that, last year was dry for a change - not sure what it would look like after a muddy one.
