Aires parking

They are supposed to be for 'camping cars' ONLY?


Caravans do use Aires much to the irritation of Motorhomers and I suppose if it is quiet and plenty of space available nobody will mind too much if you stop in the evening and move off in the morning - but I doubt staying longer would be much appreciated?


On the other hand you can always do what the French do everywhere else - plead ignorance of the language and shrug your shoulders in the true Gallic way if anyone grumbles!

Wewanted to buy an eriba puck to tow behind our landrover when going to off road meeting in France/Italy etc


While in France i asked if we could stop over in lay byes camper stops.They said NO not with a caravan,


Caravans are only insured when attached to the car was one reason


Though the main reason was that a camping car is legally considered a "car"and as such can park & remain as if it were a car


A caravan is in another category and dose not have the right to use parking places.


In France we have never seen a caravan parked for the night other than on the motorway stops.Though the French being less officious it wouldnt be a problem BUT in Spain & Germany the police wait until 21.00 or later then move caravans on.


Providing your not parked on a beach or under a sign forbidding campers you can,from the warmth of your motor camper say "you" wont be moving


In Germany its accepted in Spain the local police are like children & will get very excited,they are important & have a uniform
