    The down side of wilding is those days when its hot and sunny and you have that urge to roll out the canopy, get the chairs and bbq set up and chill with a beer in your hand. Thats when a nice quiet C/L or C/S is worth any price. After all you are on holiday.

    For solo campers the big two club sites are often cheaper than CL/CSs as they charge per person when most other sites assume that there are two adults. The C&CC also has OAP discount. C&CC THSs are great value for money as they have elsan disposal and fresh water for around £7- £10 a night.

    The membership has been worth it for us just for the financial benefits. We have been members for the last 4 years but in that time we have spent less than 10 nights on sites or Clís. We have however saved £1000ís on a new car, £100ís on ferries and Eurotunnel and I have recently started using the PumpKing card which around here saves about £6 per tank for the car and about £5 per tank for the motorhome. If I live to be a 100 the CAMC fees will have still have been covered many times over from the savings due to the discounts.

    RIP off

    Stopped using the CC / CMC several years ago when they made having hook up compulsory, whether used or not.

    In my opinion it is a greedy commercial business.

    Although a member I am no fan of this organisation, that seems focussed on profit rather than the general interests of ALL of its members. Ok we change our name to include those who donít tow caravans, we even put in grey water drop points, but we ignore the fact that there is one primary difference between a caravan and a Motorhome or camper. We donít need campsites, we donít always want to be in a campsite, but we do need to use chemical waste points, and we need somewhere to park up for the night.

    Reading their magazine is one frustrating read after another, interspersed with adds for, campsites, insurance, breakdown recovery, their shop, etc. When reading about tours carried out by Motorhomes no mention is ever given to staying outwith a campsite, itís almost like wild camping (or whatever you want to call it) simply does not exist. Daily now we have over zealous councils putting up signage which restricts us, and many of us are their members. What do they do for us, well they added us to their name, and thatís about it.

    Yes their campsites are a good standard, but my best pitches are not in their campsites, or anyone elseís.
    My best pitches over look lochs, mountains or stunning sea views, were we park up alone or with maybe one other van. Where there is no hook up or chemical waste point, or shower facilities. Itís time that this organisation really become ALL inclusive and take care of their Motorhome owners interests.
    If we all agreed there would be no discussion, and it would be a dull boring world.

    You and I may like to wild, but we are a small minority going by the number of motorhomes using sites whose owners would never dream of doing anything else but stay on a site and use the vehicle exactly as they used their previous caravans.

    We are all different, and thank god for that.

    Can you blame anyone for fearing wild camping when you read the press, or walk into most carparks were you are greeted with the usual no overnight parking signage.
    We are the reason that Skye is now over populated, or Barras economy is struggling, we are the harbingers of all that is wrong in such situations if you believe the crap that is spouted out by the ill informed.

    Yes many who were tucked up inside their caravans in safe campsites now wish to do the same in the new shiny motorhomes, and quite frankly I don't blame them
    Things have to change in the UK, or we will soon (unless you only want to go to rural areas) will be joining them.

    To be honest if I had a new motorhome, having spent the cost of a second home, I would be scared of parking by the side of the road in some seaside town or go up some of the narrow tracks I use to get to quiet, out of the way car parks. I've read of people in other forums who won't even leave their motorhome in the services to go to the toilet for fear of loss or damage, and I have friends who won't use the toilet or shower in the van in fear of depreciation. Personally, can't see the point of having the thing if you are that fragile with it.

    Some folk really have some weird ideas.
    As you say whatís the point of owning something then being scared to use it.
    Their vans will deprecate if they leave them on their driveways and never venture further than that.
    I am just back from Great Langdale in the Lake District and I am still shaking from some of the driving I had to do. At the time it was scary, I even had to bring in the mirrors to get through a gap at one point. Then I had to reverse down a steep lane to let a local bus through. But thatís the fun of Motorhomes for me.
    We spent two wonderful days wilding on the banks of ullswater. I do love the Lake District, but the only problem is itís in England and so do many of its 53 million inhabitants. When hillwalking in Scotland I always greet folk with a good morning or afternoon sometimes even strike up a conversation. But not here just to many folk for that.

    I don't know if the CMC has a members internet forum or not but I joined the C&CC forum a while ago. What a load of crap it is, it is hardly used by members and certainly has no 'Club' feeling about it.

    Is it the same with the CMC?
