Camping enthusiasts are only allowed to park their motorhome in certain places. Due to Corona, the number of mobile homes has been on the streets increased greatly. This has exacerbated the situation in parking spaces that were previously in short supply. Anyone looking for a parking space on the motorway in the evening knows how annoying it is not to find a suitable space.

Where to park the motorhome?

The following rules must be observed when parking mobile homes. with Mobile homes, Harnesses and Caravan trailers it is quite difficult to find a parking space. They are often too wide or too long. If the road traffic regulations allow, they are allowed to theoretically stand wherever parking is allowed. Often, however, parking signs (Character 314) point out that only a normal "car" may be parked there, but not mobile homes. However there is Differences between mobile homes and attached caravans. In normal parking lots and on the roadside, it is allowed with a motorhome up to 7,5 tons Total weight to park. That is allowed, though no Traffic sign with the sign "Pkw" is attached. Parking is not limited in time at these parking spaces.

However, it is not allowed to park the motorhome in narrow streets. The campers are wider than a car and would hinder the passage of normal sized cars and the prescribed safety distance of 1,5 meters, can then not be adhered to.

Whether coupled or not plays a big role!

Coupled caravans are allowed in time unlimited parking. Decoupled caravans, weighing less than two tons, are allowed in residential areas, no longer than two weeks, then they have to be reparked. The caravan is allowed to stand at the new location for two weeks, etc. The police can easily follow this up by checking the wheel or valve position. Has a vehicle more than 7,5 tons and the uncoupled trailer more than two tons, is allowed in residential areas between 22 p.m. and 6 a.m. not parked become. This also applies to public holidays and Sundays, as well as to spa areas and clinic areas.

Road users must be considerate!

If parking on sidewalks is allowed, the vehicle is only allowed up to 2,8 tons to weigh. Appropriate signs allow parking on sidewalks. In cities with restricted-traffic parking zones, parking is only within marked areas allowed. Even if parking is allowed near schools and daycare centers, it is advisable not to do so with mobile homes. Children who have to cross the street do not have a good overview of the traffic due to the bulky motorhome. It may be dangerous.
