    Newish to this forum, looks really good plenty of friendly people on here by the looks,
    We are buying our first MH having got rid on our tourer and are looking to full time and live off grid what is the thing with long term sites, i have been told that you can only stay 28 days on any one? yet i have read of people staying months at a time. are there some sites that wont let you and some that don't care as long as they get paid?

    Any tips or advise that you all give would be most welcome
    Looking forward to being a part of the MH community.
    many thanks
    Jack

    I guess you are talking about the UK. It is a lot easier in Europe although there are time limits on aires - but there are a lot more places to free camp than there are here. Weather generally better too so you will save on heating!

    Hi, and welcome to Fun.

    The 28 day rule is all to do with the local authority licence that the sites operate under. You just have to be off site for a couple of days then you can go back for another 28 days.

    From my fairly limited experience of full timing I would say the main thing is to keep a low profile so that the local council, site neighbours etc don't get upset. We stayed on one site for a few weeks and there were people with full size fridge freezers and large dining sets set up permanently in their caravan awnings, really obvious that they were living there all the time.

    A seasonal pitch on a site is probably what you need (we had one), not especially cheap but it does give you a base.
