In Sweden there has been a huge increase in sales of RVs and though many do not use them all-year I personally know of three RVs used 9 months a year. There is also a very large number of especially German registered RVs going through Sweden every year, I do not know if they are used all year or not. All over Europe they are more popular than ever, 20% of ...

The website Cost2Drive is a fuel calculator that works in Canada or the U.S., and taking into account the make and model of your car and pump prices, calculates the cost of a trip. Here's an example drive from Toronto to Tobermory, ON - It's surprisingly difficult to get the default routing to stay in Canada! ...

Like so many things in the USA, this varies state by state. In most states, no-one may be in the back - not a responsible adult, and not a child either. The concerns are that there are no seatbelts, that the trailer might flip during an accident, and that there is no way for the people in the trailer to know that you are about to swerve or break hard - not ...

my name is Karyne. I am French, 40 years old and started fulltiming 8 years ago in my RV. I have been fulltiming mainly in South Spain, South Portugal and some parts of France, and I'd like to share my experience and observation with you. First of all, to avoid confusion: we call European recreational vehicles "motorhomes", and US ones "RVs". Most ...

Both ways would probably be fine during October. Major snowfall can happen in October, but it's rare for it to close the highway for long. Your entire drive will be around 12 hours (I'm adding plenty of extra time since you're in an RV towing a car and you'll be driving alone). You say that you have a few days to do this trip in, so I would just decide ...

I tried to use a more popular science approach to answer this question: Camping.info is a good online portal to find camping places in Europe. Judging from their database, approximately once third of all campgrounds in Switzerland offer permanent places. Using the same approach, approximately 14% of all campgrounds in Europe offer permanent camping places. ...

Judging by the increasing number of campers on the European Highways I assume the answer is yes. I did a Google search and found two links about organizations for Camper lovers in the Dutch-speaking world ("Kampeer en Caravan punt nl" and "Nederlandse Kampeerauto Club"). Both links are in Dutch, which indicates a potential problem in getting in touch with ...

Based on my experience doing 2 RV trips of 2/3 weeks length in Australia and Canada: Where you're allowed to stay varies from place to place - in national/provincial parks you're definitely only allowed to stay at designated campsites (and there is a difference between "day" campsites and sites where you can stay overnight). The same is true inside towns. ...

I intended to write a comment, but don't see the link to make one so I'm writing this as an answer instead. This question actually seems like an umbrella topic concerning RV parking facilities in different provinces of Canada. I've been doing a little research on the same topic since I've similar plans. Me and my friends are occupied with the financial ...

As well as the regular RV parks, a number of box stores in Canada will allow you to park for free. Walmart is well-known for this, but their official policy is that it is at the discretion of the individual stores. Some municipalities have been cracking down on this by forcing the stores to have permits.
