    We picked our 2008 Bolero (our first MH) up a few days ago and now starting to think of trips. We're long time members of the Caravan Club but I've just read about the MotorCaravan Club on here. Does it work in a similar way - with sites, stopovers (like CLs)? And do you pay a membership fee?
    Any input would be useful.

    You will find quite a few on here are in the mcc. They do have some stopovers but we have only ever used it for the weekend meets.
    It is all broken up into regions and depending where you live will you will go in to the local region. They have meets most weekends and you can go to any regions meets.
    There is a membership fee and you also pay to go to a meet but they are not expensive.
    I am sure someone will be along to explain in more detail as we have belonged to it for 3 years and have only used it 3 times.

    Yes current annual fee I think is about £30.... plus a one off first time "joining" fee of £5, waived if you pay by DD.
    There are some stopovers and cl's BUT not many, not a reason to join...

    Main benefit we find is low cost rallies and the MCC have some good pitches at popular events.
    There are regional areas areas but you can attend any rally in any area, ideal when travelling around.
    Apart from special events most rallies do not have to be booked, just turn up... (y)

    Think you will find there are many Funsters who are also in the MCC...

    They also have a deal with haven where they have offers of £5 a night inc electric. It's off peak times but a saving all the same. We tried the mcc but found we was not using it so saved money and dropped out.

    We joined the MCC when we got our first MH we use it for rallies because of cost and some of the locations are good (just come back from Wells next to sea )5 min walk to seafront,also we have used the discounts for products.

    We are an MCC reg CL although of course you do not need to be a member to use it. The MCC have a large number of rallies at different events and a number of Temporary holiday sites.

    You could stay in the CC with your Motorhome, personally we found them expensive for the odd campsite and use BritStops now but you do not need to be a member of anything but 'Fun' to use most sites, you just pay a little bit more.

    :smiley: We've just got back home after 6 weeks wandering around Wales We joined 3 rallies run by the S & W Wales group and had a great time with them. They made us very welcome. We also rally with the SW Peninsula group in Cornwall and Devon who are another really great bunch of people. Like Tonka we've found a lot of MCC members are Funsters too. A few rallies have to be booked but other than that you just turn up and enjoy yourself. We found that we get to know a lot more about an area and where to go when we meet people on rallies, which makes our wandering much more enjoyable :smiley:

    The above quotes say it all, we have been members since we first started motor homing some 12 years ago.
    We have attended M.C.C. Rallies throughout the country and have always been made welcome.
