Motorhomer.com and Wildcamping.co.uk are getting divorced
Ok, not exactly a divorce...
On 14th July the connection between Motorhomer and Wild Camping will end and they will become fully independent websites. This post contains information about that and other things you need to know.
Joint Full Membership
1) If you are a full member of Wild Camping BEFORE midnight on 13th July 2018 then you will have the option to get full membership of Motorhomer.com for free.
2) The membership will end if your full membership subscription to wildcamping.co.uk ends, so will your option to take it up again.
3) You MUST register on the Motohomer.com website using the same email address as you use on this site BEFORE midnight on 31st December 2018.
I have already extended this offer by over 6 months and it is time for it to end.
Both websites will have POI systems:
- Motorhomer's POI system will have POI's that are useful to all motorhome users, this will include overnight stops.
- Wild Camping's POI system will have POI's that are focused for people interested in wild camping in a motorhome.
No POI data from this website will be transferred to Motorhomer. Motorhomer will have to build its own database.
I had previously decided not to have Wild Camping spots on Motorhomer but as the site are now separating I am not going to handicap it's POI system.
New forum software
Today I will be closing Motorhomer to install new forum software (Xenforo 2), the site will reopen shortly after. The site will then remain in "Beta" mode whilst I iron out the kinks.
Wild Camping will eventually also change over to Xenforo 2 and I encourage you to try the new software on Motorhomer.com. The software is nothing like the rubbish vBulletin 5 that Motorhomer is currently running.
Rallies, Meets and Gatherings
Wild Camping's rallies, meets and gathering will be moving back to this website with two exceptions.
- Applewood Country Park. This was never a Wild Camping rally before and will stay with Motorhomer.
- Hereford September Rally. The Spring rally will be on Wild Camping.
Initially, Motorhomer will only have six official rallies.
- Applewood Country Park - East Anglia (Roaminrog's Rally)
- Hereford Rowing Club - Hereford (Lee's Rally)
- TBA - Northern England (Jeffmossy's Rally)
- TBA Scottish Rally (The Laird's Rally)
- TBA - Southern England (Moonshadow's Rally)
- New Year Rally - TBA (All the Event Manager's may have a role)
I know some people are not happy with the Event Fees but they are necessary.
The fees are applicable to all meets where we use our camping exemption or have stewards running the meet.
Gatherings will not have a fee as they are not official events.
The fee is £2.50 per night per person. This is capped at a maximum charge of £5.00 per unit per event. No fee will cost more than £5.00 in total.
The thread with the details of the event will state if there is a fee or not.
If you are not happy to pay the fee please do not put your book for the event.
New POI App
Once released (sorry no date yet) the Motohomer app will allow Wild Camping member's to use the WC POI database on that app.
Inactive account deletions
On the 14th July, I will be deleting lots of inactive users from this website. I do this every year, so don't panic!
The members marked for deletion have been emailed and have had a chance to log in and keep their accounts.
If you are logged in now then you are not on the list.
Finally a few personal points
After this thread, I will no longer be discussing or promoting Motorhomer on this website, the same will be true on the Motorhomer website.
I run several of my own websites and many more for my customers. Motorhomer.com in no way replaces or steals my time and efforts from wildcamping.co.uk, to believe so is just wrong.
Wildcamping.co.uk is my baby, I love it and it's community dearly. I will always be giving wild camping first priority in my working day and in my own personal time. Wild camping is the last thing I do before I sleep and the second thing I do when I wake (I pee first in case you are wondering).
Well it is nearly 7pm and I need to start the MH upgrade whilst the football is on!

Interesting choice. I have never understood the appeal of vBulletin, but it is undeniably popular. But it is a lot of money for not a lot of advantage, and is is a bit clunky and slow.
Each version update costs so much, so my experience is a few versions out of date. Perhaps vBulletin has got better of late.
I tend to use Simple Machines as the first default, but I have considered looking at PunBB as an alternative.
Which did you consider when seeking a replacement?
We love you too.
