Microcamper towing a caravan


Recommended Posts

A friend got a ticket in the resale and is hoping to camp up with us at east cv leaving us tight for space as we're already putting a couple of smallish tents up behind us. My sister has a peugot partner microcamper which could tow our trailer tent. Does anyone know if someone be allowed to sleep in the microcamper?

I think for that set up you'd need a CV ticket for the campervan and one for the trailer tent

Thanks, the only thing is the microcamper doesnt have any fixed cooking or water facilities so doesnt meet the criteria for a campervan. It has a set up that folds into the boot of the car so that you can still use the car seats.

I wouldn't worry about that so much, I believe that's to dissuade someone throwing a mattress in the back of a Transit and claiming its a camper. I've neither washing nor cooking facilities in my T5, just a full width bed and I've never had it questioned in the six occasions I've taken it.

If it's towing a trailer tent you only need one CV pass. Don't worry you will be fine and there is no reason to even tell the stewards anyone is sleeping in the microcamper, it's simply a towing vehicle. I have used the CV fields every festival since 2009 and have seen a variety of towing vehicles not all are cars! 👍

Think you need  check further because a camper van pass has a space allocated to it. This may not be large enough to accommodate a campervan + tents and a microvan+trailer.

The OP hasn't mentioned taking a campervan, just a microvan towing   a trailer tent + 2 small tents.

This... As long as it fits into the allocated(?) space 

I assume that the microcamper is no bigger than a regular towing vehicle? so just stress it is a towing vehicle.. 

My only question is how is everyone getting in to the festival.? How many do you plan to have camping together?

Then there's no need for 2 campervan passes.

The car is a peugot partnwr tepee, Its a microcamper conversion kit that folds into the boot. The trailer tent is only a small one (6'x4' when folded). 3 of us will be travelling in the car and the others (4) will join us on wednesday, theyre coming by coach. We're taking the tents and we're having a trial set up this weekend to make sure it fits in the alloted sspace.

That car and a trailer isn't going to be any longer than any other car towing a caravan, so you will be 100% fine and will only need one camper pass.

Last year time we took our 7.6m caravan towed behind our VW T6 on 1 CV ticket and fitted within the 7x8m area.

They ain’t strict on space, as long as you don’t block the fire lanes.
