    There has been 3 uk registered PVCs parked on the roadside near Villasol in Benidorm for a week now, I'm wondering where they are disposing of their grey waste water and more scarily what they are doing with their black waste? One of them is a 63 plate autocruise that even has a silver screen on at night!

    There is a manhole cover in the car parking attached to the park which is well used for waste disposal ,other wise they use the campsite facilities for disposal

    They may not be using them for free Mark.
    Year before last we did a tour of the UK and after wilding a few nights called in to a camp site and offered the person on the desk a couple of quid if they would allow us to empty and refill..
    No problem at all sir.. Offered up the £2 and the chap pushed forward a charity pot..
    After that I asked at other places.. Some said no worries, some took the couple of quidlets

    I have noticed the three vans mentioned, I certainly have not seen either of them using the waste disposal facilities at Villasol.

    Can't quite understand the pleasure of parking on the side of a road for a week! There are a couple of French vans there now!

    I hav't noticed those particular vans outside Raco ,but often vans park on the road outside Raco for several days and use the facilities inc showers.Alan .
    Where they are parked there is also a fresh water font just inside the park.

    Yes Brisey, I think the guy at reception here at Villasol might challenge them if they wander in with their toilet cassette!

    there was the same last year with vans parked onlong the street next to villasol but then they got ticketed to move so they will only allow for a short period and rightly so imho

    I don't presume they would just wander in with a cassette it would be in a shopping trolley or a bag.

    A couple of years ago I went round a number of shops in Portugal looking for a bag the right shape and size for a Thetford cassette with a shoulder strap.
    I have had cause to use it occasionally.

    the answer is simple, they don't sit in their vans all day, they get out and about the same as the rest of you, possibly use facilities in the town whilst they are out. One does NOT have to pay to be on a site to enjoy being there. Being on a site would not be my choice but then I do like to move at least once every 2 days at the most.

    I think the term more commonly used is "bunch of freeloading tossers"

    I have been known to freeload myself occasionally.

    Oh alright, quite frequently then

    I was in Mallorca a couple of years ago, and as I was walking along the prom in a quiet area, a couple pulled up in their vw campervan and got out and walked right over into the see, no doubt for a free wash.
    Boy was I jealous! Isn't that the attraction, being able to stop and stay wherever you want?
