We are travelling by ferry to Bilbao before travelling onto Bergerac in France. Someone has said we need to put on some Marker Boards as we are travelling through Spain? Has anyone else had any experience of this.

This is old but may help

We have a motorhome not a caravan but I know they like the maker board on the rear of bike racks to be aluminium red and white stripes. Ours was plastic and we didn't get stopped but that may be just down to luck.

You only need an additional board if your total unit length is over 12 metres. The board is the red/yellow type that you see on the rear of hgv lorries.
As above the Caravan club website has details

Hope you're not going straight to France without exploring the amazing north coast of Spain!

Or ... at least ... see the extraordinary Guggenheim Museum, and sample San Sebastian's best tapas bars in Spain!

If you have time .... the Picos de Europa are a must!

A couple of years ago wee were in Collioure just about to have a 3 week break in Spain when some kind soul said they thought we would need marker boards to go. We checked our lengths and were 12cm over so decided not to risk going.
2 years on and we go next Friday Portsmouth to Santander for up to 8 weeks tour of Spain starting in the Picos then working south via Salamanca, Segovia, Toledo then down south and somewhere round Seville, hoping to go to Cůrdoba and Granada then up via Valencia across to Haro, somewhere in there we have Burgos, well thatís the plan anyway and we probably wonít get to do it all but looking forward to the adventure. If anyone knows any good coastal off road cycle paths we would be very interested and nearby campsites.

We have just come back from Portugal and Spain we did not have marker boards on in fact did see any Van's with them.   

Don't miss northern Spain it's well worth a visit loads to do biarritz is a ,just as well.

Only time I have seen marker boards was in Italy and they were put on a van as a joke.

You only need them if the total length of your outfit is over 12 metres long which ours is.

Try to fit Cuenca in to you route ... on the way back from Valencia ...

Good campsite just outside town ...

Extraordinary area and rock formations ... lovely old town ... amazing 'La Ciudad Encantada' park full of extraordinary eroded, vast, granite shapes evoking a wide range of dinosaurs, ships, animals et al ...
