    • Username and other important upgrade information   09/23/2015

      Please note that the forum is still upgrading will be for most of the night I think,therefore you may find it slow at times, looking different etc etc. This will straighten out (he hopes) as the upgrade continues. One of the big changes is that usernames and display names will change.   At the moment you can have a username and display name for example you can have a username of joeblogsy and a display name of Joe Blogs.   After the upgrade we will only have usernames.   For some this won't make any difference at all but there are a fair few of you that have different display names., many of which I have changed for people for various reasons.   If, after the upgrade you notice your forum name isn't right please just send me a PM with your desired username.   You may also find you have been logged out, if this happens and you cannot remember your original forum details, please email me at mark@touringandtenting or open a support ticket by

  1. Ok people......I know that the Caravan Club has a new name (Caravan and Motorhome Club) or something like that, but what I want to know is which of these two Clubs offer the best value for money for someone only interested in touring the UK for the time being.  The type of sites that I would be mainly interested in are adults only, quiet and within walking distance of a good olde world pub.  Over the coming years though France and beyond will be on the cards and therefore ferry discounts would come into the equation. 
  2. In 2015, 50% of campsite bookings made through the Club’s European Travel Service were for pitches on campsites in France, making it the Club’s most popular European destination.
    And with great new campsites at Lac de Sanguinet in southwest France and Plage-Sud in Biscarosse Plage included among the Club’s 90 hand-picked partner campsites in France for 2016, strong advance bookings indicate France’s popularity is set to grow further.
    Bookings for the 198-pitch La Bien Assise campsite, around eight miles from the ferry port and handy for Boulogne and the Opal Coast, make it one of the most popular sites with Club members for the second consecutive year.
    But topping the table, Le Letty campsite in the Finisterre department of western Brittany was the Club’s most popular holiday site in 2015 and offers direct beach access and a large indoor and outdoor pool complex. Many of the Club’s partner campsites are offering great discounts and promotions on pitches this summer too - from 7 nights camping on selected dates throughout the summer on campsites across Europe to exclusive offers on individual sites. Offers can be viewed at: http://bit.ly/europeancampsiteoffers.
    Of course, there are plenty of reasons why more than 80m travellers visit France each year, making it the world’s most popular tourist destination.*
    With more than 40 World Heritage Sites including fine cathedrals and stunning châteaux, prehistoric monuments, three very different coastlines, several major mountain ranges, France offers the best of Europe in one country.
    France’s motorways remain the envy of the world, while its food and drink are legendary. With lower fuel costs than recent years, you can see why it’s such a hit with campers taking their tent, caravan or motorhome over to the continent in search of the sun.
    And whether campers are planning to visit to enjoy sporting drama, in a summer when France will be the focus of sport fans all over the world, or looking for sites off the beaten track to escape spectator hotspots, the Club can help with bookings for the right site via its European Travel Service.
    Richard Grimsdale, the Club’s Travel Services Director, said: “France holds a unique appeal and charm with our customers, and many choose to return year after year to take in the unique food and culture of the country.
    “Our Travel Service makes it easy for our customers to book all components of their camping trip safely, quickly, easily and securely.”
    The Camping and Caravanning Club’s 2016 European Camping Holidays brochure is now available and features more than 140 hand-picked sites in 12 European destinations.
    Published by the Club’s European Travel Service, it lists Club-inspected sites throughout Europe, with guidance on the best sites for families or couples of all ages, sites to visit off peak, plus great deals on ferry and Eurotunnel crossings, details of travel insurance, maps, guides and more.
    To download the brochure, please visit www.myccc.co.uk/brochures.
    For more information and to book, please call a Club European Travel Specialist on 024 7642 2024.
    *Findings from the 2014 United Nations World Tourism Organisation report.
    Strong advanced bookings at the 542-pitch Le Letty campsite in Brittany, near to the pretty medieval walled city of Concarneau, make it one of the most popular holiday sites with Club members.

  6. Hello,
    This is a little different i know, but i am a product designer, currently working on a wooden trailer tent.
    It's effectively a trailer you'd pull along with a wooden housing in which you'd stay inside. Almost like a wooden mini caravan.
    I wanted to know if anybody had any thoughts? What should it include? Would it give camping a fresh new view- similar to glamping? It would 
    definitely be something pretty unique. 
    Thank-you for your time! Any comments, no matter how small may help!
     
     


  7. Hi All,

    We're interested in our next caravan, which is apparently an ABI Monaco 500CT 6 Berth 1993 but this is the first time I cannot find any resource on-line whatsoever and I'm a net whizz (normally) it has to be said.

    We are trying to find out what the awning rail size is, to check our current full awning would fit etc.

    Until we can find the above information we're a little stuck and hoped yourself or somebody you may know who has this caravan can help shed some further information specification wise.

    I would normally look on CaravanTalk Specifications but it doesn't show up there either, so any help would be very much appreciated.

    Regards,
    Rob
