If i drove in a caravan behind a vw camper van would that count as my car...or would it count as two camper vans....

Sorry to say but you would need a pass for both. :(

I imagine if you're vw is kitted out as a camper as oppose to a bus then it would be classed as a cv along with the caravan. I will dig it out when get a chance but there's a page on G.F website with the rules of what constitutes a camper so assume those rules will apply here

I personally don't see a problem unless you exceeded the 8 metre pitch size. People sleep in awnings and tents on their pitch...why not a campervan? I'd say go for it!! :D

There must be loads of T4 & T5 towing caravans in. Can't believe they're all buying two tickets??

Nooooooooo.. in 9 festivals i have never seen this (and i like a good mooch about showing caravan envy).

mind if you have a decent enough campervan it could tow a caravan ... and then you buy 2 pitches.. i dont know what the seating capacity of a campervan is though.

Surely you pay for the 8m×8m pitch it shouldn't matter if it fits inside this. If it's a day van and a caravan it's still less capacity than a tour bus.

A mate took a trailer tent towed behind his (semi camper) van in 2015 and 2016. They just treated the van as the tow vehicle,  only one CV pass was needed. Fully setup, the trailer tent  takes as much space as a caravan, although as it turned out he slept in the van...

Sorry to jump in here - I’m taking a VW Camper van and also a 5 berth tent (they’ll be 4 of us in total) but want to  cook in the tent etc - are you okay as long as you keep in the allocated pitch 7 x 8 mtrs
