    No.

    You shouldn't have any problem. You may be asked if you have turned off your gas supply though.

    When were moving to our home in France we were pulled over for a security check and asked if we had any knives on board. When we said yes, a full set of cutlery etc, we were just waved through with a smile.

    Customs are well used to motorhomes. If you have any check at all it will be a quick look in wardrobes etc. but even that is highly unlikely .

    Just relax and enjoy the trip!:)

    Don't hide to many cigarettes. Last year they sent a Spaniel into our van looking for contraband cigies. Found a carton but that was allows.
    Safe travels.
