The Roadmap to your 2021 Camping and Caravanning

So, as promised we had the big Road Map announcement by the Prime Minister on Monday this week indicating that by mid April we should be all able to use our Motorhomes, Caravans and Campervans, with more facilities opening up in May.

This has meant that similar to last year when Lockdown One was coming to an end there has been a surge in bookings for campsites and general interest in Staycations in all its forms

I have noticed a lot of activity on Social Media and forums where people are scrambling around looking for recommendations for where they can take their holiday.

Just a thought………

It may be worth investing a few pounds and purchasing some of the great guide books that are out there.

Despite so much information being online, it is still nice to sit down with a coffee (or something stronger) and thumb through the books sharing what you see and not worrying about a poor signal or data usage.


A couple of examples are the AA Caravan & Camping Guide and the Alan Rogers Selected Sites in Europe (which includes a UK & Ireland section), both of which are now on their 53rd editions.

Sites are inspected every year and with a huge amount of experience dating back to the 1960s you will find a whole host of information contained in both of the 2021 editions.

The highly informative Alan Rogers Guide even has QR codes on every page taking you direct to the individual sites web pages.

Then there are the National Club Guides.

If you are members, then you will by now have received your copies of

  • The Caravan & Motorhome Club’s 2021/22 Sites Directory and Handbook
  • The Camping and Caravanning Club’s SiteSeeker 2021/22
  • The Motor Caravanners Club Handbook & Sites Guide 2021

For what you get in these books it is well worth the membership fee even if you don’t participate with any other Club activities.

The Shows

All the best laid plan have had to be changed, but the good news is that come the Spring and running through until October there will be a full programme of Motorhome, Caravan and Campervan Shows on during 2021.

This year’s Events now begin with the New Forest Caravan & Motorhome Show running 21st-23rd May with camping there available from Monday 17th. You can book 7 nights for just £100

Many dates have had to be moved, but keep a regular eye on our Comprehensive Showgoer Guide which we update almost daily.


The Showgoer Guide is HERE

Even if you are not particularly interested in looking at the selection of new or used ‘vans at the shows, there is always plenty of accessories to look at and usually good evening entertainment as well.

Plus, if you can’t get booked on a campsite these are a good cost effective alternative.

Electric Vehicles

As ever Wellhouse Leisure are at the forefront of innovation with the first real 100% Electric Powered Campervan.


The base vehicle is made by The London Electric Vehicle Company, who build London Taxis at their factory in Coventry

Battery driven with an electric generator to top up the battery.

Charge points for Home and On The Road are fitted as well as regenerative braking to extend power.

Insurance with Personal service

Nowadays there are all sorts of Comparison Sites and loads of ways to give all your details on Online forms.

But how about some personal Service?

Campton Insurance Brokers have been insuring Motorhomes, including American RVs, DIY Conversions, Fifth Wheel, Japanese Imports and Demountable vehicles since 1967 – probably longer than anyone else in the market today.
