There has been 3 uk registered PVCs parked on the roadside near Villasol in Benidorm for a week now, I'm wondering where they are disposing of their grey waste water and more scarily what they are doing with their black waste? One of them is a 63 plate autocruise that even has a silver screen on at night!

There is a manhole cover in the car parking attached to the park which is well used for waste disposal ,other wise they use the campsite facilities for disposal

They may not be using them for free Mark.
Year before last we did a tour of the UK and after wilding a few nights called in to a camp site and offered the person on the desk a couple of quid if they would allow us to empty and refill..
No problem at all sir.. Offered up the £2 and the chap pushed forward a charity pot..
After that I asked at other places.. Some said no worries, some took the couple of quidlets

I have noticed the three vans mentioned, I certainly have not seen either of them using the waste disposal facilities at Villasol.

Can't quite understand the pleasure of parking on the side of a road for a week! There are a couple of French vans there now!

I hav't noticed those particular vans outside Raco ,but often vans park on the road outside Raco for several days and use the facilities inc showers.Alan .
Where they are parked there is also a fresh water font just inside the park.

Yes Brisey, I think the guy at reception here at Villasol might challenge them if they wander in with their toilet cassette!

I don't presume they would just wander in with a cassette it would be in a shopping trolley or a bag.

A couple of years ago I went round a number of shops in Portugal looking for a bag the right shape and size for a Thetford cassette with a shoulder strap.
I have had cause to use it occasionally.

the answer is simple, they don't sit in their vans all day, they get out and about the same as the rest of you, possibly use facilities in the town whilst they are out. One does NOT have to pay to be on a site to enjoy being there. Being on a site would not be my choice but then I do like to move at least once every 2 days at the most.

Virtually none ! :)
I was in Mallorca a couple of years ago, and as I was walking along the prom in a quiet area, a couple pulled up in their vw campervan and got out and walked right over into the see, no doubt for a free wash.
Boy was I jealous! Isn't that the attraction, being able to stop and stay wherever you want?

wow! That has put the cat amongst the pigeons! Why is it that everyone thinks their way is the only way? I have free camped and have always been responsible, getting rid of waste (grey or black) either at camper stops that allow for a small fee or even garages that have given permission after offering a few euros. My rule is that I treat the local environment as I would like my home village treated, with respect. Personally we like to use our motorhome to explore and visit places that are out of the way, not to sit on a site for weeks on end, but as I said each to his/her own.

In benidorm I prefer to be on Raco and have green mats down and day tent erected and all The chairs out as we usually stay from October until end of March.
This year we had decided to go to portugal but got off the boat at santander drove to Palencia that afternoon And after some thought we decided Benidorm suits us best so next day we were in benidorm .we will now sell camper when we get home and buy a caravan to leave down here.
I have just walked past the park and now there are 8 campers parked down there.

The point of my original post wasn't whether they are freeloading or not, but if they are pouring their crap into the rainwater drainage which from all the feedback they obviously are, the manhole referred to is for rainwater, not raw sewage, anyhow a call to the policia local will sort it

Once you get down here from Águilas on down to Almeria they are everywhere along the coast. Around Vera playa they have ready made parking with all the unfinished urbs just back from beaches.
When my mate comes over in his MH & satays he normally gets me to drive all around down there in the car so he can work out where the best places to go are ! :xgrin:

If you're so incensed with campers parking on the streets ,why don't you tell them instead of notifying police locale who I'm sure won't be the slightest bit interested . People have been parking down there since I've been coming here aprox 12 years, police will move them on after a short period and it saves you in my opinion being classed as a nark

dont see any point sitting on a camp site for three months using their showers and karzis whenyou have paid your hard earned dosh for your home on wheels with it all there , might as well sell it buy a car and use the money to stop in hotel for extended stays then you wouldnt have to worry what other people are up to just stopping by the side of the road minding their own buieiness .

I love it when part time, holiday campsite motorhomers get all concerned about people who choose to live their lives differently and then worry about where they empty this or that.

Relax Plastics... worry about yourselves and don't get all concerned about stuff that is none of your business...

Some smug folk give other folk a bad name!

Happy New Year...


JJ :cool:

PS. If these folk are upsetting Mr UkBill they must be doing something right! :rofl:

I have to agree with every thing you state ,I ve travelled around the Spanish coast free camping and have decided that Benidorm is the place for us and having pets Raco is the site that suits us. But because I choose to stay on sites nowadays it dos'nt give me the rights to criticise how other people chose to park in beni

Motorhomers reporting other motorhomers to anyone may get us all a bad name at the end of the day.
There seems to be no evidence that these guys are doing anything wrong.
Wild camping at it's best me thinks. :coolest:
