    Hello and welcome from across the pond!

    I've seen members from as far away as Australia and New Zealand, but you are the first that I've seen from the U.K.

    Welcome to the Portal from Southern Ontario. Glad you decided to join. Yes I have seen people on here from the UK, with their Caravans. I don't remember any of their names because, quite honestly, it was a while ago. But don't feel left out, you've joined into a huge family here.

    Welcome to the forum from Midway USA.

    I can't think of any other members from the UK, but that doesn't matter. We're as interested in hearing about your camping experiences and answering your questions as anybody else. Just remember, everyone here like photos! [:)C]

    Yes me!! I'm from Devon and moved to Oregon in 2000. I can't even begin to imagine towing a pup in the UK, would scare the life out of me!! [LOL] Welcome, where do you camp?

    welcome from the high desert of the American SW.
    There have been several owners in the UK over the years, though I don't recall their names off the top of my head. I know I've seen posts that included photos of campgrounds, and tents added on at the door for more space. (With all the changes in the last couple of years to the Portal and to photo hosting sites, those may no longer be available.) We have a few members around the world, Australia, NZ, I seem to remember one from Ireland last fall or so, and I think maybe one from the European continent in the last few months.

    We camp a lot around Yorkshire as that's where we live. We have plans for Scotland later in the year.

    Welcome to the Portal. Would love to see camping pics from over there. I backpacked through England and Scotland back in the 80s and have always wanted to go back.

    So, tell us about camping in the UK - What are the most popular methods? Tent, Pup, RV? Are the Class A campers as snobbish in the UK as they seem to be on this side of the water?

    Camping is very popular over here. And all methods used. There's a very mixed level from very basic to taking the whole house.
    Not sure what a class campers are but utters we do have the my set up is better is better than yours crew.
    The pics attached are from a recent trip. Currently waiting for our very brief summer to arrive.

    Nice pup! The campground you show in the photos would be referred to as "camping on the lawn" by many on this side. Denotes a wide open campground with no trees or at least an illusion of separation between sites. Is that the more common situation for your campgrounds?

    Edit: Wanted to add a picture of the campsite we have reserved for later this year:
