My wife and I were in a similar position a few years ago. We contacted Select Sites at Abergaveny and they arranged every thing for us except passports. Had a good holiday in Brittany with no worries about ferry bookings, site fees, etc. No hassle at all. No problems driving whilst towing from Roscoff to Britany - very good roads. Good luck and enjoy yourself.

An adaptor for your mains lead to convert it to a Continental style plug; another adaptor to change the polarity over (many sites have live and neutral reversed, so you will also need some means of checking polarity, if not already provided in your caravan); and a good phrase book! The first two will be readily available at your caravan dealer.

Neither fire extinguishers nor beam benders are legally required. As far as headlights are concerned, the only thing to watch is that you must not blind oncoming traffic. If you have height adjustable beams, it's usually sufficient just to turn them right down and then bias them slightly to the left as you probably won't be doing much driving on main beam, anyway. The optics of beam benders often do more harm than good (they cut down light and produce more stray light).

After reading your message, im sure there is the clear problem of exchanging your existing calor bottle once in France, as you may or may not know, they do not exist on the continent!May i suggest what i had fitted to my motorhome, refillable cylinders that are topped up with LPG at a filling station. France has more than they uk over 1300 + its cheaper. I used those from www.leisuregasservices.co.uk who offer a mobile installation service,never regretted it!I always travel into France and this has been a godsend, never having to take or exchange another bottle again.
