    Spoiled for choice on the Mosel.. don't even need the Bordatlas but always worth having, buy it when you reach Germany .. this must rank in the top five motorhome friendly places .. :thumb:

    meanwhile check out the Stelplatz here

    went for the first time last year, our first stop was just as you get into Germany - a small place called Igel(bus ride to Trier) about 10 min drive from the cheap petrol across the border in Luxemburg. It was a proper campsite and last year about 16Euro. If you have the ACSI it will be cheaper so long as you are out of peak season. Then up through the Mosel. We used the Bord Atlas which we got from Vicarious books - more expensive than buying from Germany itself but excellent service.

    We left Calais and joined the motorway into Belguim, headed for Brussels - nip around here and headed for Luxemburg. Filled up with cheap petrol and carried on our way. No tolls!

    Many Stellplatz all along the Mosel. Hubby would look at the Bord Atlas and input the co-ordinates into tom tom and followed her instrctions. One of the best and cheapest hols we have had.

    My fave place was Bernkastle Kues. 8 euros incl leccy, Mehring - right on the river, 6 euros plus leccy. Went to other places, but can't remember the names.

    Great flat bike rides, longest we didwas about 29Km and I'm not too fit and didn't actaully feel too bad after. So take your bikes if you have them.

    if you need more info e-mail and I will ask hubby the other locations.
    regards

    Karen

    Don't forget to fill up with fuel in Luxembourg before going into Germany.
    It's all the same price wherever you buy as no tax on it.:thumb::thumb::thumb:
