When the CAMC bring in their new booking systems next year , there will be no significant difference between them and the C&CC. Only reason to join both will be to get a greater number of sites and CL/CS's to choose from.

Caravan and motorhome club because I shop at Sainsburys and get the 4% discount on the gift card, membership is therefore effectively profitable! Only stayed twice with them this year as we rarely tour in the UK. They also offer better rates than Brittany Ferries direct although the bookings are not normally changeable.

As well as the MCC, it would also be interesting to know how many forum members are members of the Auto-sleeper Owners Club (ASOC)


Good Idea Peter,,  I have put a post up in the ASOC Section.   Roger

ASOC Members get a discount on servicing and some accessories at the Service Centre and many of the dealers - that more than covers the cost of membership. There is a monthly (at the moment) magazine that most members agree is excellent. The rallies are mainly relatively cheap and well located 'pop-up' campsites sometimes activities such as walks and or meals available for members to participate in if they so desire.

That’s what I thought when I first got a van 10 years ago. I had contacted their technical advisor for some general advice beforehand and he was very helpful. When I eventually purchased our Nuevo I thought it  churlish not to join and I was definitely NOT a rally  person.

I arrived at my first rally, Dartmouth…….and I was not expecting a lot, and I particularly hate enforced jollities. That is simply not the case. Very  friendly people, some great characters. If you want to join in on events you will be welcomed; if you don’t just do your own thing. There is no pressure. Give it a go!

We have been members of the CAMC (previously the caravan club) for 28 years.  We didn't join the CACC because we were not campers and they had fewer sites which is still the case.   We have thought about leaving the CAMC but we value their CL network which is larger than the CS network.  We have also thought about joining both clubs but to do so seems extravagant.

Have been members of both clubs for a while.We use the CAMC mostly fo the CLs, and the CaCC for CSs. However we do use the club sites on the latter quite frequently as with their age concession reduction,the site prices are very reasonable, often similar to CL overnight fees.

Bought a caravan in 1995 and joined the friendly club.
Had many weekend trips with the beds DA.
Considered the other club a bit posh for us.!!

Interesting comment Micky,
When we 1st got a caravan and joined the CC (CaMC) we went on a rally and the guys has collar and ties on, and sports jackets or blazers and I thought that very odd when you were camping (too posh) so until we moved home didnt go on another CC Rally.
We were persuaded to give our new local group a try and what a difference, all casual like us smile! so I think it depends on where you are

We were active ralliers with the CC about 25 years ago, going away almost every couple of weeks. On the last morning , usually Sunday, there was always 'flag' when we all gathered for coffee and results of any competition etc. For that the rally officer always wore collar and tie. On one rally, the rally officer was running his first rally and when 'flag' came he entered wearing a tie and nothing else (but a small cloth covering the essentials), he said he'd been told by the chairman that he had to wear a tie.

I think there still is an element of snobbery in the C&MC. Although the cut glass decanter and glasses seem to disappeared from the window of caravans now!!!!!

I remember going to Damage Barton campsite many years ago. Don't know if they still do, but had two separate areas, one for CC and another for C&MC. You could feel the tension in no mans land between the two. You felt you were being watched incase you strayed across into C&MC area.

When we went there about 10 years ago there were the two separate areas, one had much better views than the other, can't remember which , but no longer affiliated to C&CC, just the CAMC now.

Since we cannot go anywhere there's no point belonging to any club. So I am a 'neither'.

Good news. If I remember correctly, we were just into camper vans, so must have been in the CC, being in the lower part and the C&MC was up the top of the site so had the views. Site owners not at all helpful when I had a flat battery and told me to use the payphone outside, did not offer me their phone on the desk. Never been back!! and the wind bent our awning poles. No mobile in those days.

The rubbish skips were always full of bent poles and torn awnings and tents, the winds were wicked. I remember walking down to coastal path and sign outside the hay barn 'adders live here', I steered well away, I don't like snakes.

That reminds me of when we were on a Caribbean criuse and stopped off at the US Virgin Islands. There was a 'nature walk' up the hillside with extensive views over the bay. We found the start of the footpath and there was a BIG sign headed 'WARNING. DANGER. IF YOU TAKE THIS PATH YOU WILL ENCOUNTER THE FOLLOWING HAZARDS" It listed the dangers you were about to encounter if you dared to tread this way. "LONG GRASS" it said. Dangerous stuff, grass. It was no higher than ankle height. It may have included snakes but I don't remember that bit, just the dangerous long grass  [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
