Motorhomer's Ten Top Tips

The Code of Good Practice
Technical information leaflet

1. Driving a motorhome involves observing the rules of the road. Likewise, the considerate driver observes respect for the neighbouring locality when he has stopped his vehicle.

2. Protect nature and environment -observe the Countryside and Seashore Codes. By keeping conditions as Nature intended, we preserve a precious pastime for all lovers of the outdoor life.

3. Park safely and considerately, in particular ensure that traffic is not hindered; the view of historical centres, monuments, commercial activities, points of scenic interest and similar location can be seen and enjoyed by other people.

4. In city environments, refrain from parking at inappropriate locations, do not cause a visual eyesore or contravene local regulations by using camping equipment or utensils outside the motorhome.

5. Grey water, dry waste and the contents of chemical toilets must be disposed of only at places designated for those purposes.

6. For overnight stops it is advisable to use an approved site for motorhomes or a campsite. If that is not possible, to avoid unwanted surprises, make sure there are not any restrictions to park your vehicle.


7. If driving in a group, leave plenty of space between your vehicle and the one in front so that other drivers can overtake safely.

8. Always keep pets on a leash, thus minimising any inconvenience to other people. Please, remember to clean after your dog.

9. Politely inform other motorhomers of any short-comings in their modus operandi, explain that such behaviour can only damage our collective image.

10. Be polite to inhabitants of areas we visit. Let them know that we appreciate their city, town or village. Let other motorhomers know of places where they are welcome.
