Parking slots


The Thames-Coromandel District Council provide limited freedom camping in their carpark for certified self-contained motor caravanners.


Astonishingly, the 4 slots provided would be impossible for most self-contained vans to manuevre into. They are too narrow and too short. In fact, this is just a standard carpark and no consideration has been given to how four 8 metre long vans ( average size ) could all manuevre into position. Two such vans could do it, but certainly not four.


If you're a significantly smaller van, you are less likely to be certified self-contained. So, while it's a nice thought to provide the space, it's really not too useful.
