Anyone use it regularly?

We never had cause in the Hymer.

Are they all open in the winter? Would a Fifth Wheel (Celtic Rambler so smaller than most) be accepted? They are allowed on aires.

Personal Aire
yes, used them - mostly in wine areas (!), a good way of tasting & buying good local stuff. I doubt whether most would be open, but you can check in the book. 5th wheel? Surprised that they are "allowed" on aires, probably not been challenged.

As far as I know, the only motorhoming Oxford United supporter in Bognor.

I don't feed trolls!

Fifth Wheels are classified as "articulated motorhomes" don'cha know We have stayed on several aires and no one has said a word against us. We do get interest, though, from people who have not seen one before I think the ruling is all to do with our services, like motorhomes, being "on board".

We stayed with our RV at several wineries in Charente and Dordogne about year 2000+ and all had plenty of room.
Some vineyards were selling at local markets and their blurb showed they were available as stop-overs. We obviously bought a few bottles.


The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000.
Brexit is madness orchestrated by the insane.

Must admit its been a while

And we didnít find that easy to find them from the book

There is an expectation that you buy

Or maybe that was just us

And my guilty conscious

Wine was always a problem because Iím a pleb when it comes to wine

I sip but care little, I like or should say liked , dry low alcohol white wine

But bought anyway

So cost us more than a campsite

As did lavender oil

But I love lavender oil

Fair exchange
