We have encountered some anti-rv feelings on our travels (8 months now). Some ridiculous prices, some comments 'caravans don't like something as big as you cutting out their light' 'you'll take all the electricity and there will be none left for the rest of the site' !! Perhaps if they measured the average area taken by caravan, huge awning, territory-grabbing windbreak and then the 4x4 we rvers might get a better deal? Perhaps not. We do have a budget though being retired too early for a pension so probably the friendly cls for us.Can't remember the exact prices quoted but people were saying that overnighting at Americana last year cost in excess of £40. Some of the bigger 'holiday' parks also charge quite a lot per night but you do get nightly entertainment etc., etc., etc. Are you sure they haven't quoted you a price guaranteed to make you (An RV, presumably) not want to go there - we have heard of that before, too!
Sounds like the site from hell at Ashbourne (can't remember the name but there's a pub on site brews its own and a pool) We had a bank holiday there and they had outside kids disco until 2am and all day drinking for the parents. We like a drink or four but ..................Hi Jan
If you haven't been to Billing yet, have a look for an alternative.
A lot of people we know do not like Billing for many reasons - we don't because of the noise element. I'm afraid burn ups at 3am do not do anything for a good night's sleep. Nor do empty beer cans, wine bottles and organic litter do anything to improve our opinion. Of course, it may have changed in the last couple of years for the better.
Also, people that go to Billing tend not to be regular campers. It is on our doorstep too..........
