**** UPDATE 3/5/21: Early booking discount code now ended ****

We negotiated this camping offer for Funsters https://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum/threads/new-forest-april-2021-camping-offer.228265/ & the organisers Appletree Exhibitions kindly agreed to extend it to RVOC members too :) They will park RVs together where possible in an area with good road access.

Not a rally or official RVOC/Fun meet but a great value week long camping offer (7 nights for £85 after discount) in the New Forest 17-24 May 2021 with a RVOC/Fun early booking 15% discount code & early entry from 10am on the Monday which has been kindly agreed by Appletree Exhibitions http://www.appletree-exhibitions.co.uk/new-forest-show-ground-april.html (y) Like the popular camping offer in 2021, this should go ahead & if we are lucky & Government guidelines allow there will also be a much larger motorhome show with many more stands.
This first post will be amended with the latest info. as it is confirmed but please post or PM to let us know that you want the discount code to book (please don't share or pass this code on) then let us know so we can add you to the Booked List which will help Appletree to allow big enough areas for us all. Whilst they will try to pitch us together in our own areas it will be essential for everyone to adhere fully to whatever Government guidelines are in place at the time especially with regards to social distancing & gathering with friends as well as whatever rules Appletree Exhibitions have in place then. Know it is still possible for us all to have an enjoyable time with friendly distanced chats as that is what worked well before.

Location: New Forest Showground right in the New Forest about 30 mins walk (past many ponies :inlove:) to Brockenhurst with it's shops, tea rooms, pubs, restaurants & Norman church. Maybe jump on the train there for the short hop to Lymington town for the day or Lymington Pier for a scenic ferry ride to Yarmouth on the Isle Of Wight. Lyndhurst is a bit further afield via a cycle track or a woodland walk (take a map for this route as many paths) for the keen walkers.
Facilities: Elsan points & drinking water. Portaloo toilets will be open in daytime hours but closed overnight.
Dogs: Well behaved dogs are welcome but must be kept under control at all times & not worry campers or wildlife. If in doubt please use an enclosure or tether on your pitch.
Price: RVOC/Fun early booking discount code is 15% so 7 nights from Monday 17th May are £85 instead of £100 for up to 2 people & motorhome with entry to the Show stands (y) Even just for camping it's great value for the New Forest in April at £12 per night if staying all week.
The discount code also applies to shorter stays:
6 nights from Tuesday 18 May £74.80 instead of £88
5 nights from Wednesday 19 May £64.60 instead of £76
4 nights from Thursday 20 May £54.40 instead of £64
3 nights from Friday 21 May £44.20 instead of £52
2 nights from Saturday 22 May £34 instead of £40
The above are the pre-booked prices - if you have booked a short stay via the website then you arrive earlier it will be an extra £15 per night on the gate.
RVOC camping area: Those arriving on the Monday will be parked up by Appletree staff in the area that they have allocated for RVOC which should be near to a roadway within the Showground - you do need to let them know on arrival that you want to be in the RVOC area. If arriving later in the week then places in the RVOC area can't be guaranteed but (depending on numbers) should still be possible so again do ask on arrival. Whilst general campers should only arrive from midday on Monday, RVOC members & Funsters are welcome from 10am so we can beat the queues.
Booking: Request the discount code either by posting on this thread or sending us a PM then book direct here http://www.appletree-exhibitions.co.uk/new-forest-show-ground-april.html inputting the code during checkout. Don't forget to let us know so we can add you to the Booked List on this first post which will help Appletree to allow a big enough area for us all. Please don't share or pass on the discount code as this would risk being able to have a discount again like this for all of us for this & other camping offers.

A couple of our photos taken on a walk from the Showground in September 2020 - it's a great location for photographers too:

Not a rally or official meet but a great value week long camping offer (7 nights for £85 after discount but less nights possible) in the New Forest 19-26 April 2021 with a Motorhome Fun early booking 15% discount code (coming soon!) http://www.appletree-exhibitions.co.uk/new-forest-show-ground-april.html (y) Like it did this year, this camping should go ahead & if we are lucky & Government guidelines allow there will also be a much larger motorhome show with many more stands including local food stalls, two nights evening entertainment & more yet to be confirmed...
This first post here will be amended with the latest info. as it is confirmed but please post or PM & let us know if you want to be alerted once the booking offer opens.

Oops! :blush: Just realised this is the same weekend as the International Campervan Show at Stratford https://www.rvoc.co.uk/forum/thread...t-stratford-upon-avon-race-course-2021.31388/ . We hope to be at the Adventure Overland Show with Fun in September but ruled the ICS out as there is the regular Appletree Stratford Fun Meet shortly after so wanted to avoid a clash with that one.
Asked about RVOC joining at the New Forest as they have the capacity & our Fun meets in recent times haven't had big enough pitches but should have checked on here first so apologies to Jason @WESTIES ON TOUR for this clash!

The dates have changed for this one (full details on the first post) so hope some of you may join us there this May :hi::hi:

You think that it will still happen..?
Yes - the camping is highly likely to go ahead in May as it & the Show did in September last year - the entertainment is the bit which might be lost if the timescales for the Government Roadmap slip. Know that Appletree will do their best to make it all happen.
