The Technical Team at the Club holds a wealth of information and much of it is distilled in these pages.

If you’re looking for the right tyre for your motorhome or need to find a gas cylinder to use on the Continent, the chances are you will find the answer here.

Team members Ian Hewlett and Iain Geddes have both been active campers and caravanners since childhood. Now they regularly test cars and are involved in the Club’s annual Tow Car Awards. They also try out tents, trailer tents, caravans and motorhomes for the magazine’s On Test section and in their own time enjoy their own camping holidays.

Whether your question is about matching a tow car and caravan, how to use an electric hook-up or finding spares to repair your tent, you are likely to find the answer in these pages. But if not, you can ask the team by clicking below.

  • Does the Club have a policy for charging electric or plug-in hybrid cars on Club Site hook-ups?

    At this time we have no specific policy. If you have a serviced pitch with an electric hook-up then you can use this as you see fit. However, please bear in mind that it is a maximum 16A connection so if it is cold you may end up using a lot of gas to keep warm and heat the water if you are using the hook-up for your car.

  • Does a motorhome need a special MOT test?

    No, a motorhome – technically more correctly known as a motor caravan – has the same MOT test as a car, a class 4 test. The only issue you may have is if your touring unit is tall or very long, it may not get into some class 4 testing bays. Always check this when you book.

  • How do I leave a campsite review?

    Our general page about campsite reviews is here or you can click on the Reviews tab on an individual site’s web page, followed by the Review button. Read more »
