"Objects" and "monstrosities", not Motorhomes

A poster on the Caravan Club Forum suggests that motorhomes be segregated, or, even better, BANNED from Caravan Club sites so as not to subject Caravanners to the presence of these “objects”.

And, moreover, these "objects" are “monstrosities, often larger than my bungalow”, and their occupants were “keeping themselves to themselves, slamming their doors”.

Not sure what made me laugh the louder, that, or HIGNFY, which I was watching whilst browsing the CC Forum.

Cheers,
Gwen

Maybe they're jealous that they can't go on aires...

Nah! This is a tugger posting on the Caravan Club Forum. Wouldn't know what an Aire is, let alone desire to use one.

[Mind, neither did I know until 3 years ago.... and still have not much desire to use one.. but that may be the subject of another thread!]

Gwen. [Still a tugger too. But an enlightened one.]

If we could ban caravans from the road I'd be quite happy to have motorhomes banned from CC sites - especailly as I don't use them

Whoever wrote that post is a 'tugger' in the true sense

How miserable must his existence be that he torments himself with such issues and then imagines for one moment that his life would be enriched by demonstrating his petty intolerance to the world.

There is clearly nothing in his life...

I can see his point - when you consider how attractive a caravan looks with huge 4x4 towcar, awning and windbreaks - all in different and mainly mismatched colours - along with accessories and kids yelling and dogs yapping and bikes being ridden around without consideration and toys scattered everywhere and unmarked guy ropes trailed out for all to trip over.

Compare that to a compact colour coordinated motorhome with just two people quietly going about enjoying the tranquillity of the countryside and I can see why any tugger would dislike and be unable to comprehend a form of camping so different to their own!

Really makes staying on a site appealing doesn't it - but at least they all disappear inside to watch TV every evening thus leaving peace and quiet to reign once more - but only until daybreak!

Not that anyone would wish to exaggerate of course!

Horses fer courses - live and let live - each to their own - and long may such bio diversity on campsites continue!

Reading it all again, I am now thinking that it MUST have been a wind-up? There are not people around who think like that ... are there????

Oh yes there are!

You only have to look at some postings on here to see how intolerant and malevolent people can be of anyone who dares to think differently to themselves!

Not the best, I agree. But when they are on form - with a GOOD Chairman, it's cracking. Still one of the very few programmes I regularly watch though.

Sadly it seems there are.

Maybe there is room for another club for these people, who are quite entitled to their view, and should be catered for.

Separate fields for motorhomes / caravans/ caravans with dogs/ caravans without dogs/ motorhomes with generators/ caravans or motorhomes with children ....... etc etc.
( The list is endless).

Might take up quite a lot of acres though.

20,000 caravans purchased a year and what? 3000 motorhomes? The UK is caravan central. I have always hated the things and the mentality that goes with it....., Closest I got was a trailer tent and that went within a year!

So how do you characterize that “mentality”? Really interested to know. We have, and use, both a caravan and motorhome, according to need / type of holiday. Was not aware that we have a particular, and identifiable “mentality”. Only one which means we like to get away as often as possible, and with different purposes in mind.
Curious to know…

Cheers

PS Can any inventive person on here coin a term which combines both Motohomer and Tugger? Anything apart from “split personality” please!

I too have camped, trailer tented, caravaned (both towed and static) and motorhomed over the last 65 years and we have many friends and family who enjoy other forms of camping and when we join them on a site a lot of friendly ribbing goes on about which is 'best'!

Truth to tell there is no 'best' way - other than to say the method that suits your wallet, available time and your preferred style at that particular moment in time is the best way!

Motorhomer and/or tugger = Mugger?

Come on Eddie, answer the lady, I to would be curious to know the caravan mentality. I have never had one, did have a trailor tent for a while, but was not aware of this special mentality.

Strangely enough, a moderator moved it from where the OP posted in first place, to the Motorhome section - when it is clearly anti-motorhome.

In line with CC attitude toward those pesky monstrosities called motorhomes maybe?
You know the ones - those second class club members who just turn up at 5.00 pm and expect to be able to stop for just one night, empty their loo get fresh water - and all for only about £20 mind you - the bare faced cheek of 'em - fancy expecting that on a club site!!

What you have to understand is that caravaners are inferior beings to us motorhomes but superior to campers. That is why they resent us and would like to see us gone.

I exclude from this observation the couple we were chatting to on the last site we were at who had a Vanmaster caravan towed by a V8 top,of the range Range Rover. Both magnificent British products.

The above posts seem to go hand in hand with the daftness of leaning across to wave at another motorhome going the other way on a dual carriageway.
