    just looking at a campsite and noted the pricing structure.

    They charge more for a motorhome than a caravan?

    any ideas why?

    seems strange

    no idea why, never seen that before..

    bigger pitches ?

    they also say that these prices ' Start From' so maybe bigger caravans also pay more.. as do RVs

    to me that's just another way of 'cashing in' .. like charging for dogs, awnings etc

    I wouldn't stay there

    email and ask..

    A caravan and car outfit needs more space. It doesnt make any sense.
    Looks like they won't get many Funster visitors then!

    I would not use them, two adults in a motorhome use no more than two adults in a caravan, weird :eek:

    Maybe the hard standing pitches are reserved for motorhomes and RVs :cautious:

    Also a caravan would more than likely be on the electric all day and night.

    maybe it's because front wheel drive motorhomes are more likely to suffer wheel spin and chew up the grass. :swear2:
    you don't have that problem with a big 4x4 + caravan...:reel:

    seen many a Ducato making a ploughed field out of a nice grassy pitch :LOL: :wink:

    If my post above is the reason, then I would pay an extra £1.00 for a hard standing (y)

    Interesting, they don't like people with iPads either. Their website doesn't Work on an iPad because it uses Flash and does not have a fallback. Just says view it on a desktop computer. Seems they are just not interested in business or perhaps they consider themselves not suitable for "Rich" people in that you must be rich to have a Motorhome or iPad.
    Best to let them to get on with it and go elsewhere. Perhaps somebody with a desktop computer could copy this thread to them. They may not understand that they are alienating their customers.

    I assume because caravans use the grass pitches and motorhomes get the large hard standings ... I understand it's quite normal practice to pay extra for hardstandings on campsites, personally though I'd prefer a grass pitch anytime!
