Any advise would be appreciated
All these countries are in the EU so you should not need a green card, your normal cover should be fine (but do check your policy).
Do you have a breakdown / recovery service? If not I would suggest you do - lots of people have these thrown in with the motorhome insurance policy.
E111 is of course now the EHIC health card, and yes if you do not have one you should get one.
I would suggest a camping carnet which costs about £5 and you can get from the camping and caravanning club. (ACSI probably no good as you are in peak season)
