Hi.....has anyone tried to stop overnight in one of the big supermarket car parks....obviously after spending some money in-store AND asking permission?   Asda, Tesco, Morrrisons all spring to mind, or even an out-of town mall?

It seems a pity to lay up the van just because most official sites are reaching the end of the season.

Other than that, where would you suggest for a pull-in?

Pubs?     There is an organisation you could join, or you could just ask on spec.     Have a look at this thread.

You are allowed to stop at Tesco stores overnight.

It is best to ask the managers permission before doing so.

One of the Tesco board members/directors is a motorhome owner.

A bit of research will throw up plenty of year-round sites. No need to 'lay up' for lack of 'winter' sites.

Pubs have to be the easiest/cheapest solution. In our experience most are happy to let you stay if you patronise their bar - just ask.

If you want to plan ahead or don't fancy asking 'cold' then there are websites with directories of motorhome friendly pubs. You can find details of ours here

Hope this helps

Remember also that if on a pub car park the driver must be under the drink drive limit as you can be done for drunk in charge.

Generally you are ok with supermkt carparks but look for parking restriction signs, as some supermkts are putting on 2hr restrictions presumably enforced by wheelclamping thugs.
