Hi All
We bought our first Motorhome "Sigma autosleeper" in February of this year which we have named Morris.  We are still on a massive learning curve but loving every minute of it.  So far we've been twice to Home Farm, Rivington, stayed in Llangollen (Sun Trevor pub) and in Brecon (motorhome stopovers) on the way to South Wales; stayed in Llanishen and Llandow in South Wales.  Have stayed at Ingfield Farm, Ingbirchworth, Visited the North Yorkshire County Show and going to Astle Park Steam Rally this coming weekend.  We've not done a week away in it yet as we already had holidays planned for this year prior to buying the motorhome.  We both turned 60 last year and decided it was a now or never decision, so glad we made the decision to buy.  We're planning a trip to Germany next year, all being well.

Hello and Welcome.

You mentioned touring in Germany ... you’ll find it such a motorhome-friendly country, sadly in stark contrast to the stance taken by many local authorities in UK.  We’ve toured there over several years and are going again in September.  Germans love their motorhomes (Wohnmobiles) and the accompanying lifestyle.

Germany has a concept of low-cost or occasionally even free parking areas (called Stellplatz) for overnighting in most towns, with infrastructure widely available for motorhome servicing (emptying tanks, topping up fresh water, etc).  The road network is superb and mostly toll-free, with more space and less congestion than at home.

In common with many countries, German towns are increasingly adopting low emission zones, requiring a nationally recognised permit (called an Umweltplakette) to be purchased if you plan to drive into town centres.  It’s a once-only purchase for the vehicle, costing just a few Euros and you’ll find advice on this and many other aspects on the forum.

Happy travels,

Tim & Ruth
