No one who has travelled in France can have failed to notice the number of foreign motorhomes. Thousands if not tens of thousands flock to France each year, not only in the season but throughout the year. Brits, Germans, Dutch, Italians, Spanish, etc , it's like a united nations of vans on some sites, and they don't all go for the good weather or the wine.. no, they visit because of the attitude of the French to motorhomers, we are made welcome, excellent facilities are provided and although there are height barriers they always make parking available for vans.. usually free. When asked by French who are thinking of visiting the UK what it's like, do we have aires, what are the site costs etc, once informed they raise their eyes and you can see them mentally scoring off the UK as a future destination.. they won't come, can you blame them? Britain is loosing out massively, we have high fuel prices, height barriers, high handed officials, high traffic volumes, high camp site prices, but with virtually no aires, we will never attract the foreign motorhomer. I'm aware of the work and petitions going on by some to improve the situation and the progress made, you have my greatest admiration, but frankly, I cannot see it changing any time soon.. if ever.. Is there anything else we can do, short of blockading Downing St. ?
