Travelled around Morocco twice, the most recent was earlier this year. We felt as safe in Moroco than other countries we've toured, including Britain. Morocco is a fabulous place.
Plenty of campsites there, but some can take some searching. Camping Morocco (http://www.vicariousbooks.co.uk/camping-morocco.shtml) has a lot of useful travel info as well as plenty of sites, although it does need updating.

Morocco is a great place to visit. there are plenty of campsites and cheap guardian parking all over, the people are very friendly and trustworthy. still plenty of wild camping south of Tan Tan but the police have clamped down nowadays further North and will move you on. We were there last year and will be entering this year on the 8th Jan for 3 months. have done the Algeciras-Cueta crossing in the 70's last year we did the new Tangier med, just over an hour. get your tickets from Carlos Agencias de viajes en Algeciras, Venta de billetes a Marruecos y Ceuta.

Moroccans are just like people everywhere, some good some not so. But what I can most definitely tell you is that unemployment is high particularly among the young and some make a living out of the tourist. Many are well educated, brighter and certainly more street wise than many of the unsuspecting western tourists from whom they'll try to extract a few Dirhams.
So, as a first timer be on your guard, they'll know you're a first timer almost instinctively, after all it is their profession to sus out the gullible punter.
A great country for the motorhomer to tour, just to experience the differences from Europe, which are getting less pronounced as time goes by, so now's the time go (but 40 years ago was better!)

This is the route we did last year, West coast down to the Spanish Sahara, then back up to Guelemin and across to Merzouga, Tafroute is a must, similar to the old Tagahzoute, then back up to Chefchaoun and Tangiers

Have fun no matter which way you go

.... entering this year on the 8th Jan for 3 months.......

Hi - we are contemplating this. Have you already booked the ferry?, What are your travel plans? Would you be comfortable with another alongside ?

We are currently scheduling a ferry on 12 Dec to get to Europe, then to Malaga possibly to meet friends, then onwards.

No we have not booked the ferry we will do so on the 7th in Algeciras at Carlos Agencias de viajes en Algeciras, Venta de billetes a Marruecos y Ceuta. (http://www.viajesnormandie.net/) Our plans are to get as far South as quick as possible then take it easy enjoying the warm weather, we did over 3000 miles last year in Morocco so wont be visiting as many places see our blog,
We will be meeting many of the same people we met last year if you would like to hook up to go over and get acclimatised no problems, we tend to do our own thing to be honest, not a lover of convoys. There will be many British vans there again along with the 1000's of French German and Dutch vans, we can give you a list of places and co-ords that are great places to visit.
If you decide to go drop us a line,
Marc and Sam
