    We will be taking delivery of our Bailey Approach SE760 next month and whilst it will fit on the drive there will be no room for the cars, so need storage. Can anyone give me some names & numbers for SE London/Kent areas?

    Thanks
    Jackie

    in Tunbridge Wells

    In Tunbridge Wells just off the A21 on the Longfield retail park there is a yellow box? storage and they have outdoor secure storage that allows access from 6 a.m see a few catering trailers and box trailers in the yard.. might be worth a try.. easy access of the main road... not cheap as I asked them when I was looking at a larger RV than I could get on my drive.

    It might be worth trying the Caravan Club at Abbey Wood. There used to be a long waiting list but I believe a lot of vans left after the introduction of the LEZ. There is also the C & CC site at Canterbury they have storage. There is very little storage in North Kent. We have our van stored but have been told that there is no planning permission for the storage facilites. We are now panicking as are the other 45 vehicles that are stored with ours.

    If you find something let us know as we will be looking as well. I could always rent you our drive which is where we did store our van until the lez came in. :Rofl1:

    Canterbury is not easy

    Having stayed there in the past... is a nice site.. but the storage is not that easy and if I recall they have to get it in and out... plus the entrance road to the site is not easy...

    There is a place top of Pole Hill near Knockholt just off the M25 (Orpington exit) down from the Pole Hill garden centre before the hill starts proper and before the entrance to the Ministry of Defence Fort Halstead.. seism to have a few bus's and an odd camper there.. has a metal gate, but not sure how secure and the ground looks a bit rough.

    LEZ - Low Emission Zone

    Check it out on the TFL website.

    Type in your vehicle reg and it will tell you if your van is compliant or not.

    I thought everyone knew what the LEZ was

    I really thought everyone knew what the LEZ was... boy he must have lived a sheltered life... if you have an older diesel motorhome you may find you cannot come in to or out of the London area without a big fine. Much debated on here over the last few years.

    Modern diesels comply, it is just some of the secondhand older models... but as said if you enter the reg number on the TfL site (Transport for London) then you will know if you meet the regulations.
