We’re new to the campervan scene and just had our first trip. Loved it but with one big exception and that was we inadvertantly booked into a snobby site in Dorset – they accepted us but we were the only VW on the site. Most others were twin axle ‘Senator’ caravans (yuk) with electric parking devices (double yuk) and the people were just so, so stuck up. When we gave a cheery good morning to our neighbours they literally ignored us. Same with other people going past – we really were not welcome with our T5 and Motordome awning….!!
We went out to West Bay in Dorset and saw a nice site with 4 or 5 VW (bays, T4’s, T5) plus a couple of Tranny’s and that looked so much more friendly, we wished were there. And our campsite was a member of the so-called friendly club (Caravan and Camping Club) – certainly didn’t live up to its name! Shame as it did take the edge off our stay.
So is there a listing of campervan friendly sites anywhere? We’ll happily contribute when we find one to recommend. Otherwise, any tips on finding suitable sites?
We don’t want a repeat of this week, even though the camping and exploring was great – we just want to relax amongst like minded people who aren’t looking down at us.
Incidentally though – Dorset is a great county to expore!
