The other type trashed everything, left a total mess, were abusive, washed their kids in the kids water park etc etc....total nobs.

Like boaters and jetskiers and sailers and rowers and drivers and cyclists ........not everyone is the same..
Agreed peter.
Infact there is one with a jet ski who stays on mudeford quay regularly.
I won't even park next to him! :-(

Christchurch is great because there are 5 spots within a mile or so of mudeford that I have been stopping in without issue or problem for getting on for 20 years!
Infact the police drive round all of them at night and stop and chat if I'm outside or just drive past if I'm in bed!

How many motorhomes proportionally are there compared to cars ? 1 - 5, 1 - 10, 1 - 20.

usually a very low percentage of motorhomes to cars, probability is that the car drivers are leaving the rubbish.

To be fair, if you have never had a motorhome, you don't realise the freedom and lifestyle it gives you.
So obviously non motorhomers won't be as keen.
