Immediately after the peage leaving the motorway at Rouen (travelling north) I was pulled over by a Gendarme (first time ever).
Checked the V5 and then my license, asked me if my license allowed me to drive the motorhome (7.2 tonnes RV) which I told him I had "droight to Granpere" for. He did not ask to see Hi viz vests, spare bulbs, triangles, breathalysers or anything else.
The only other thing he wanted to know was what the motorhome was worth, when told he said that would pay for a small appartment!

We were stopped by a French customs man after coming out of the Sommport tunnel... He asked "where have you come from" I said "Spain" he said ok and to carry one !!

You can come from anywhere else the tunnel only goes between France and Spain
