Never tried wild camping? Why not give it a go . Guide to Wild Camping in a Motorhome
It is motorhoming at its rawist (real word?)
The way to enjoy the great outdoors at its best without the crowds.
We love to open the doors in the morning and be on our own.
Excellent article, thank you
Our first night ever was wild camping. We'd only had the MH for 2 days... but it was only the car park at Devil's Dyke nr Brighton.
Good article but curiously, when I click on the link, it says "Howdy Champers" in the top right. Weird.
This is my best wild spot to date, it's a listed aire so the purists might not accept it as true "wilding" but it has no facilities, just a rough space on the cliff top. Cabo Finisterre, Galicia.
Is there a new Aire in Calais, now the beach one has gone.
Is that formerly known as the jungle ?
Very well written Jim. We love wild camping but aren't too tight to use a proper site or CL. I hope that your guide tempts a few more motorhomers to give it a go.
Looking again at my shot of an "almost wild camping" spot above, I hadn't noticed that the giant, whose head can be seen below, is also visible. With a bit of imagination you can see him lying asleep up the cliff. Best to click on the image above to see it and look to the left of our van for the head, which has a very big nose.
Getting off the beaten track leads to all sorts of discoveries.
Oh dear, dear, dear...
In most cases, not using a "proper" site or CL has nothing to do with money...
well written article Jim,my only concern would be the grey water on a road ,we left a ferry riding our motorcycles in Calais,the moho in front was dripping and as we went around the roundabout one of our guys slipped on the grey water and ended up with a broken arm
An interesting article Jim but I'm sorry but I don't agree with your statement " Wildcamping it’s what motorhomes are for". That is one valid use but many people, and for a variety of reasons, never "Wildcamp" but enjoy the use of their motorhomes just as much.
lovely looking spot john ,my idea of a peacefull corner with a view to die for
Seemed to me that I was giving a rousing endorsement of both wild camping & using sites?
Please, please, please don't mind me.
I am in a very strange mood these last few days...
Much, much too sensitive about things!
I constantly allow myself to get all hot and bothered when I think folk are claiming "off-site" motorhomers only do it because they don't want to spend money... and that the only place you can get rid of your black and grey water is at campsites...
Please forgive me...
Only one thing puzzles me ,How did the van in the picture get through that tiny gate ?
No problem mate, tis forgotten already.
that why I just built a smaller camper to get to the places other camper's can reach the mane rule I stick to clean up when you arrive and before you leave dispose of your waste responsibly leave nothing but foot prints
An interesting read @Jim . In particular you say that
"An extra cassette to double your black waste is always a good idea. You can buy storage solutions for these so they fit under the motorhome."Can anybody please tell me where I might find these?
We love wild camping, have many great spots around the country that we wish not ever to share, did a campsite a few months back as we were low on water and regreted ever going on there, putting up with other selfish peoples crap is something i would rather not be paying for, i like to go where i want when i want, i know some have to use sites for other or personal reasons but thats your/my choice... whatever your faves are its all the same - KEEP ON CAMPING !
