    Well I've bitten the bullet and bought my first motorhome now comes the fun - getting it our there on the road!
    Can any of the seasoned forumites suggest a few websites I can use to look for suitable sites or is joining the caravan club the most sensible way to go .
    I suppose what I'm really looking for is the Motorhome equivalent of Tripadvisor.com but does it exist .

    Thanks in advance

    CC or C&CC might not be "sensible" but for getting going it's an easy option. Assuming you interests are mainly in the UK. It's some of the most expensive camping but usually a decent standard, if you can get in.

    Otherwise if I want to visit an area I just google "camping Amsterdam" and usually a few hits come up.

    Or just ask here - where would you like to visit tomorrow ?

    We have found the cc&c ok but we dont use it to find camp sites.

    There are loads of web sites that will give you all the low down on camp sites.

    Just gool "touring parks" and the name of the area that you wish to visit and you will find loads.

    As an alternative as Brian said ask on here for reccomended sites. Just tell everyone where you want to go.

    The club sites are good for giving you the small certificated sites with minimal facilities (and charges), if that's your style. We use the C&CC sites, mostly off-season.
    UK camping (see above) is good for sites and reviews.

    We purchased out Motorhome in June, and in July we went to Scotland in it staying on a 'Commercial' site.

    As we had joined both the Major Clubs we thought we would try one of the regional meets or rallies. So far we have been on about 6 weekend meets and found them great value. We have paid between £5 and £7 a night. Generally it is like wild camping in that you are in a field with no electricity or toilet blocks etc. Sometimes there are event planned, other times it's up to you to make your own entertainment.
