Parking motorhomes & caravans: What is allowed?

Parking motorhomes & caravans: What is allowed?

A mobile home or Caravan, often referred to as a camper, is the epitome of a dream vacation for many. But because of the size, the question arises after the trip: Where can you actually park the vehicle? Of course, parking on your own property or with permission on another private property is allowed at any time. But what about public roads? The large boxes often cause displeasure among residents, primarily in areas with limited parking space. However, in most cases parking is total legally, as long as the vehicle authorized and insured is. Otherwise, for example if it is unmarked or expired Seasonal license plates turned off, problems can arise.

However, the owner must check his vehicle regularly, for example in the case of temporary parking restrictions, in order to avoid expensive towing actions. And this also applies to towed caravans.

Parked caravan: in residential areas a maximum of two weeks

For disconnected Caravan however, other rules apply. In residential areas they are allowed a maximum two weeks be parked in the same parking lot. And anyone who thinks they can simply claim that they drove away in the meantime is wrong: the traffic control staff document, among other things, the position of the tire valves. If the caravan was actually moved a few meters further after the two weeks had elapsed, then at least there shouldn't be any problems with the traffic wardens. However, this method does not protect against angry neighbors looking for a parking space.
