    From what I have been told the ferry to Jersey is relatively expensive due to 'landing fees' and they will not allow you to travel on the ferry unless you have pre-booked a camp site. Basically the island does not seem to be motorhome or camping friendly.

    The September Practical Motorhome (on sale now) has an article on taking a motorhome to Jersey.

    WHY would you want to go there it is a useless place for a motorhome. Unfriendly narrow roads, three places to keep in on and a hell of a cost to get it there. Park up and stay in a cheap hotel with a hire car. for less than the ferry charges.
    Nice place to visit but drive a SMALL CAR as the main roads are as small as you get in a rural area here and the rest are lanes.

    We are going to Jersey next week. We looked into taking the camper but at 9 mtr it was too expensive and you could only drive from ferry to campsite. So we are taking car and doing B&B works out a load cheaper and we have the car to get about in. (y)

    Couple of people I know have been

    One in a 40' RV, as said really helpful escorted to the site, via the fuel station as fuel was cheap?, great holiday but not allowed to move off site,

    The other end of the scale, one in a PVC visiting their daughter and son in law. Not allowed to book the ferry without campsite booking, not allowed to sleep in the PVC, not allowed to park on daughters driveway after dark must be back on site. They enjoyed it as they were visiting family and grandkids, but did say the island is camping friendly not so for MoHo
