Increasing numbers of vanlife camper vans enjoying Staycations has seen an increase in wild camping and tourist areas being swamped with lots of vans.
Reports of vans being damaged and even owners being attacked, is not nice to hear. So what can you do to limit the risk of upsetting the locals?
I am running a FREE competition for 2 of you to win the latest book from Brit Stops. Helping you find free places to stay with the landowners permission
In the comments, write where you would like to go in the UK to stay first.

I bought a Stealth VW Transporter T6 Kombi Highline van 140bhp diesel SWB with tailgate.
Slowly turning it into a stealth camper van / day van with bed. I will also need something for cooking, cooling, sleeping, drinking ?? Choices to be made.
I have lots more to do though, I have a new electrical system, using Victron components and a Lithium LIFEPO4 battery, so I obviously need to install some power devices. I have a new sound system, with Focal speakers and ibus 2.1 amp, Playstation PS4, which will be removable, TV’s on headrests.
Lots for me to look forward too and it would be nice to take you on the journey.
Please do let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions.
Vanlife for me is just beginning, it’s a great adventure and I’m loving it. 😍
There are many great camper adventures to come camping in my tiny house.
