We often see claims of how much motorhomers contribute to boosting local economies where we stay so during our holiday starting with the Sandy meet I decided to keep a rough track of how much we spent. After Sandy we used a CL, MCC rallies and had 3 nights free camping at a pub. Average daily spend worked out at about £47.50, of which about 16.5% was accommodation fees (average about £8 a night). We ate out several times and didn't stint ourselves so we weren't choosing "cheap" for the sake of saving money. Granted we have bus passes, which we used quite a bit, but is £47.50 a day (for two people) really a major boost to the economy?
