RVing Abroad

Are there other countries (non-North America) where people do RVing? Not to get political but if November doesn't go as I desperately want it to -- please no political arguments, only RV advice please -- I'm seriously considering moving abroad. But next year we are planning to start full timing in our fifth wheel which I'd not like to give up if possible. I'm wondering if there are countries we'd be able to continue full timing. I realize this is no doubt just a crazy pipe dream but I'm researching it anyway.

All the European countries have RVers and nice campgrounds. Check out this blogger. They recently moved to France. Lots of information on their move. Note on the top colored heading the top line has U.S. info and the bottom line has Europe info. Lots of good links on the right side, also. It'll take you a long time to read about it as she is a fine detailer in everything she does.

Non-North America places that have RVers?

The only place that doesn't is Antartica, and maybe only a few in Greenland.

I have traveled a bit around this old world, and am pretty sure I have seen RV's on pretty well every continent.

Might be a bit scetchy in some of the poorer African countries, but people still camp out in overland style RV's there.

Motorhomes sales have exploded in the Scandinavian countries in the past 5-10 years. Also in many European areas as well.

If you plan to head for Europe, be sure you have a good sized bank account. Fuel prices will shock you!

In much of Europe you can pull over and camp anywhere that is safe. Europeans are pretty relaxed about letting you use a few feet of their lot. I would strongly caution one about RVing in Britain - it's tough enough driving a wee car there! Scandinavia is certainly the most laid back and camper friendly but that $8/gal gas could cause one distress given that driving from southern to northern Sweden is the same as San Diego to British Columbia!

Europe is going on lockdown. And getting into OZ and NZ is impossible right now. Tough times to try and sort out international travel. Hopefully, things will get better by spring.

The RVing in OZ and NZ is amazing.
