You are thinking of traveling to Europe by Motorhome? We're bringing in here TurMundial blog, tips in a series of posts, on this type of trip, today it is about signaling for Motorhomes in Europe

First before talking about the signs, we have to remember the different vehicles that can travel, one is the Motorhome, as the name implies, It is a motorized or wheeled home, they are vehicles that have the motor / drive over the house in one piece, also has the Trailer, which are two vehicles, a regular car or SUV and a trailer behind it is home and we have another variation would be the Campers which are usually vans as: Combi, Renault and other vehicles adapted to sleep in them, You may have kitchen, bed, Among other things, but most do not have bathroom, this is one of the major differences between Motorhome and Camper, We have a post that talks about the variations Motorhomes and another on differences between Motorhome and Trailer.

We started talking by that party, because normally Trailers can only park in campsites and two others anywhere, but it's always good to see the country's traffic rules you will travel.
