Freedom! That is what you experience when you go on holiday with a camper. Go and stand wherever you want! By traveling timeless and roaming the roads you can alternate between nature, city or camping. That makes a camper holiday complete!
An incorrect assumption that we would like to refute is that you are not flexible with a camper due to the lack of a car. After all, nothing could be further from the truth!
With a camper, you can use camper pitches, unlike a caravan or tent. This allows you to easily and without much effort to the most beautiful places.
A motorhome parking is a simple, often fenced, parking lot where campers can park for a short period. A camper place has the size of a spacious parking space. You enter through a barrier and park in an empty space. You can put the table and chairs outside, but actually the purpose of this short stay is that you do not unpack and easily drive away after one or two days.
Below we briefly describe the characteristics of motorhome pitches in the Netherlands with examples.
