Hopefully picking our nearly new Cali up early Jan. One question we have for you more experienced camper van owners is once you get to a camping site and park up where reception tells you to, on most sites if you go out for the day, do you return to the same site? i.e do they keep it for you!! This question is mostly for sites where there are no marked up parking positions and maybe just a field?

On sites where Reception give you a numbered pitch, then not a problem. On sites with marked out pitches that you pick yourself more of a problem. We have a pop up toilet tent that marks the pitch, so something similar. We also have a Campervan Notice on a peg that we use to mark a pitch. Camping on an unmarked field then we have 4 flags on sticks to mark the 4 corners + the sign +/- pop up tent.

Something like this. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pitch-re...311224?hash=item23af9016f8:g:aHUAAOSwGhxZdGJq

We tend to leave our hookup cable plugged in and coiled up by the pitch. (Unless real downpours are likely, of course, when we unplug it!)

Or once we had a watering can with us for some reason, which was a rather fun marker. That was in a friend's bigger van, though - it would have taken too much space in a VW :)

We left a washing line across our pitch in Croatia to reserve it. Came back and the pitch was empty and the washing line gone! It was a nice line too...

I bought a fold up warning triangle & attach an old number plate to it when leaving the pitch. Does not blow over and packs away nicely too.
