The CC does offer a lot in the way of travel insurance, regimented sites, etc. A lot of people join the CC for the CL network. Why not join both and then at the end of the year decide which one is for you?
Wrong David the generic term is motor caravan as it was a caravan fitted onto a motor chassis. I agreed that that the word motorhome has now made the word motor caravan almost non existent because it seems that some, but not all, motorhomers preferred to looked down on those with caravans as the poor relation and therefore these motorhomers needed to distinguish themselves from their poorer relations. We are also aware that you are a great supporter for the CC and no matter what they do, you will always agree with whatever changes they make and that is your prerogative plus the fact you own a motorhome and probably look down on us plebs so the name change will be to your liking.
I am still struggling to understand how changing the name will result in people flocking to join? If you have a motor home caravan why use sites at all when you can park up on any lay bye on a beach front? Why aren't camper vans included in the new name change? BTW how can a static be a mobile home as you need specialised equipment to move it? TBH the CC need to start looking at lowering their prices for club members and also they need to look at the problem where sites are empty during the week but packed on weekends. Is this because they do not request a booking fee so some people book as may weekends as possible cancelling at the last minute and prevent others from long stays of more than 5 days on a C site?
However 60% own mobile homes so once again the minority rule. I think they have changed because Grenville is buying a motor home / caravan and it would not look good if the Chairman had a motor caravan instead of a mobile home / caravan!.
That is correct and as an elected council by paid up members the members should have been consulted prior to any major decisions. That is why it is called a "CLUB"! After all we were all consulted about Brexit.
Not a very clever plan as it is targetting the younger sports minded generation however they can only visit on weekends so do the facilities sit almost empty for most of the week especially in the winter. We are not in favour of massive campsites due to noise issues.
The first tow car that I used in the early seventies was a diesel Peugeot 404 pick up that was already 10 years old with a very high mileage. I used to travel around Rhodesia as a trainee surveyor towing the caravan and had a passenger and plus two people in the bin at the back along with all the necessary stuff to camp in the wild for up to a month so definitely over gross maximum train weight of the vehicle. The gear stick was on the column and the reverse of the Ford Zephyr MKII that I had previously.
