    Trying to book a ferry from Dover to Calais but most online booking systems only go up to 7.5m whereas my RV is 10.5m.
    Who do experienced Rv'ers use when crossing the channel.

    Seafrance are cheapest at the moment.

    I would love to do Eurotunnel again but because now LPG cant use em although got enough Tesco points:Doh::cry:

    Book direct with the operators as bucket shops wont take our RV sizes on their systems:RollEyes:

    Trouble with seafrance they don't appear to be running 6th 7th 8th October 2008 which are the dates we want to return.

    Only quote I've managed to get so far is P.O. £150 return.

    Do I need to mention the motorbike on the rack or should I just take a chance.

    No Ror as long as they know your length.

    Ror dont do overnighter for price, it kills you for days (or certainly did me) £150 ain't bad:Wink:

    Ror are you sure you are on the seafrance booking system and not one that has a similar name? I am not being funny but a few bucket shops give the appearance of being the operator.

    Seafrance's computer system would handle you length easily whereas bucket shops cant.
