    We are having some difficulty in getting used to motor homing after years of tugging. For example, last year we went to several MH rallies. Drive there, stay a few days, and then drive home.

    This time we are going to the Chester Camperfest, possibly stopping at a Britstop at Oakham on the Wednesday night to get to Chester on Thursday.
    Right - the issue comes when we find somewhere to stay before Peterborough. Should we be booking somewhere to stay or is it reasonable to take a chance, bearing in mind all the other motorhomers going to the Motorhome show.

    My inclination is to book but am I losing the spirit of adventure :whatthe:

    Your choice of course but in the particular circumstances I would book.

    I treat my motorhome just the same as my car. If I go out in the car I never book a parking space before leaving home. Have never failed to find one yet ::bigsmile:. Thats one of the advantages of owning a motorhome :thumb:.

    Not really, we have too many MHs and too few sites during holiday periods.

    Real adventure is Italy ::bigsmile:

    You're welcome to join us (and The Mogs - who we haven't met either!) at
    http://www.atherstonecaravansite.co.uk/

    £15 per night with facilities, and still got availability.
    ....though it best to book in advance for the very reasons you state!

    Its a decent location roughly half way between Chester and Peterborough - if you fancy it!:Smile:
