As you Funsters have been so forthcoming with excellent advice and information, I thought I may as well come to you for more help.
As I've mentioned earlier, we are finding it difficult in Spain to find sites with nice easy access and large enough pitches to house our 8.5m long Celtic Rambler Fifth Wheeler and Toyota Hilux.
Following your advice we have been happily pitched up at Cabo de Gata. On Friday we intend to travel on to Malaga, then Cadiz, Seville and Madrid. Any recommendations on suitable sites would be greatly appreciated.

There are some big rigs currently in the Aire area Malaga beach I think the details are on camper contact or search for sites, give them a call and see if they can fit you in.

Good luck!
Just come back from 3 days in Malaga/Benalmadena area driving solo visiting friends.
Have to say that there is NO WAY I would take my 5ver into that area! Driving was manic, streets VERY tight.
I'd been warned by friends that the area would probably be far to busy and concreted from my taste and I have to say that although meeting friends was fun, the area really isn't for me................especially with the rig on the back!

Interesting to see how you get on using areas autocaravanas with a 5-er.

Technically they're not a motorhome and we can't allow them here at Totana (legally)!

We recently stayed at a campsite at El Puerto de Santa Maria which is opposite Cadiz on the estuary. A boat service runs regularly (30 mins trip) to Cadiz, I think it was about 2.75 euros a trip , it was a nice spot.

Sorry I cant remember the site name but it was acsi with some larger pitches although it is always worth emailing/phoning to check.

Camping Playa Las Dunas S Anton.
However, I thought the entrance was quite small when I was there.
Good size pitches once in though.

We have stayed at El Puerto de Santa Maria with our 5'er, met friends there with a large RV so quite a few large pitches.

For Seville we stayed at El Rocio with the 5'er, Camping Aldea, also in the ACSI book, got the bus into Seville and stayed overnight in a cheap hotel, Hostal or Pension, it would be a bit of a push in one day.

We have stayed in Hostals in Seville many times, usually we did not book but it is possible via booking sites etc, there are lots in Seville and many near to the Plaza de Armas which is near the bus station.

Staying overnight is worth the expense in my opinion, one of the best areas for Tapas is over the Triana bridge, Calle San Jacinto area.

Edit, Semana Santa, the week starting Palm Sunday, and the Feria de Abril are very busy in Seville and best avoided unless you specifically want to see the processions, which are intense, rooms will be almost impossible to find and very expensive.

I agree but I noticed a large , tall motorhome being let onto the site through another entrance once they were booked in to avoid the narrow bit.

You are right, although I did not see one come in I did see one parked by that gate.
