    Can I just clarify what the law is on wild camping meets/gatherings etc Is it legal for a pub to just allow 29 vans or so to stop on their premises overnight. Isn't special insurance needed?

    Not as far as I'm aware. Organised through FB. So as a non paying membership site I wouldn't think they had insurance.

    You done your meet through mhf so therefore had insurance @Wildbill (y)

    If you swap out the word 'vans' for 'cars', would the question even be asked?

    If it's just one night , I don't see how it could be against any law , it's a car park doesn't say not overnight , as long as there is no disturbance or obvious camping , can't see any problem.

    as motor home owners thay have a minimum of third party insurance
    And as motorhome owners a I am sure responcibil members of the motor homing community
    The pub will have public libilty insurance
    I don't see a problem it's just sume frends getting together
    I have Ben to a few fb meets and fund them better than sum other meets
    Live and let lived I say

    It's a weekend .m
    I would like to know the answer so that I would know if the pub should have insurance to allow 29 vans for the weekend. I know that the organiser doesn't.


    I'm surprised the nearby campsite hasn't complained.

    I'm waiting on Jim replying. I know he has insurance. What it actually covers I do not know.

    Don't think you would have to have any special insurance any different than any car park.

    Am I missing something here.

    You let a good few MoHo owners you will be at a certain Pub carpark on a certain day.

    The Landlord is happy for you to park in his carpark that you are entitled to do as you will be a patron of the Pub.

    Is this any different to say a car club having a meet at a Pub?

    I cant see what the issue is.

    Just read your post

    http://www.motorhomeparking.co.uk/act1960.htm

    Would appear there is an issue o_O

    The problem Bill is if I have been asked to organise a rally at a pub somewhere on behalf of a FB group then I would want to know that its legal. Which its not. Another reason why I asked.
