Caravan - how is it?

Due to this years problems with camping (especially the uncertainty for us arriving late) and the fact that we're getting old we're considering trying the caravan camping next year.

But how is it? Of course a lot quieter (but we would also have preferred Silent Camp had it existed this year).

- are there enough space also if you arrive Wednesday?
- are there all the regular Agora stuff (shop, tent, fireplace etc.)
- can you put up tents besides the caravans?
- are you allowed to set up pavilions etc.?

Anything else I should know/consider?

caravan camp is a good place...if you want to get sleep in the night/morning!
its a quiet place with much comfort for the 30 year-up generation!

- it is no problem to arrive on wednesday (the last 3 years we arrived on thursday!!)
- there is a fire place, a big tent, one food store, hot showers, water flushed toilets etc
- it is allowed to put one tent beside your caravan
- pavilions are no problem

Suddenly I feel so old..! (31). I am, however, considering moving back to the East after four years in the GAT camp - I think it's too quiet in those remote GAT/Caravan areas. icon_smile.gif

Thanx! I believe it's exactly what we are looking for. Now we just need a caravan... anyone?

There were 11 of us who travelled to Roskilde this year via plane.

I wonder if it would work out cheaper to drive to Denmark (it's a 17 hour drive), hire a caravan and drive it to the festival site.

Is hiring a caravan generally done? I somehow can't imagine every caravan hire company being fine about taking their caravan to a festival. Can any festival guest enter the caravan site?

Have you tried driving on the right side of the street (in both sense of the word :p)? Otherwise, get ready a major panick attack the first of times you try to drive in Europe.

I'd say just one sense of the word icon_wink.gif. No I haven't, but I've been on a road trip abroad and can sorta understand what it's like. Lots of people say you get used to it almost right away. But yeah, I'd probably hate it. Roundabouts would be weird.

I probably wouldn't mention that I was going to Roskilde, when renting a caravan, if I was you. Just make a simple coverstory (it's not like they can see your milage or anything).

Anyone can come visit you at the caravan site, but they cannot camp with you, if they are tent-campers.

www.blueline-udlejning.dk rents out festival caravans. Of course they are old and probably somewhat shitty, but who cares - we only need it for sleeping anyway.

who knows,what will be in 2010 with the caravans? because of not having enough space for camping it could be like in the years 2006 and 2007.

in those years the caravan camp was a few kilometers outside the festival side!!

I don't think they will have regular camping area on the east side of Køgevej, so I'm not too concerned about this.

They can start with opening P (which they will)

you can arrive when ever you want. who cares about 130m farer away.
but its very calm at the caravan. and you need 29min to go to the area.
the feeling is that you are in lithuania. but without ship.......

the showers and the shitting and pissing is clean like at home, if you are a single guyicon_smile.gif)!!

but licked it more at the caravan because of the good sleeping even if there are 47,12°C in your tent. open your fridge and get a cold whisky-cola with isterninger!!!

hope you unstand all trhe shit i wrote.......

Caravan The area is usually free until Thursday as many of the guests who do not want the long celebration. It is not allowed to put other tents in the individual unit, but only an approved awning. In 2010, there will be charged a fee to live in this area, because this is an area where customers are using significantly more space than the usual tent fields. Awards will be announced in early January

Arrghh do you mean when the caravan area was in Snoldelev? About 7km from RF and the location sucked big time. They had it there 2 yrs and after that near the festival again, Phew! Much better place. icon_cool.gif

I sure hope it won't be too big... I see the point though. Is it allowed to use the wagon "gas installation" (fridge, stove etc.) or is that considere "open fire"?

Is a pavilion an approved awning. I don't think the wagon we've rented has one included, and it would suck very much to be forced to sit in the sun all day...

There is no electricity at the caravan camp.

It seems very stupid to begin charging for caravans. Where have you heard that?
That is going against the festivals policies, isn't it. Camping are included in the ticket.

We have lived at the caravan camping for the last two years. It's been great. Of course it's all little bit quieter (but still a great party) and a little bit further away from the festival sight but I see no problem in that.

The absoluteley best thing is when you arrive. You don't have to struggle to find a tent spot for several hours.

But I'm a litte worried that the caravan camping will be removed next year if there isn't enough space for tents. That would be very sad. From what I understand the caravan camping was so far away a couple of years ago that you'd have to take the bus to the festival. That's extremely annoying. A walk for 20 minutes is ok, but to jump on bus every time you need to go back to the camp is no option to me. If that's the case it's back to the tents.

Jan Bechmann is a Roskilde official (you just can't see it here) so that's how he knows.

The reason for moving the caravan further away again, would be to use the area for regular camp, but I'm sure there's no way the festival want "regular" visitors to cross Køgevej all the time. That would imo simply be too dangerous.

Do you know if it's allowed to use gas installations in the caravan?

I guess i was wrong... but I didn't see a tunnel coming... anyway could someone from RF tell us if the Caravan camp will still be at east of Køgevej or is it going back to Snoldelev or some other far away place? Hope not...

Yes a couple of yrs ago it was a bus ride from the festival and it was shocking. You really felt like you weren't part of the festival as such, more a guest. The last year out there on the crappy field in Snoldelev was 07 when it rained a lot. By the end of the festival, all the caravans had to be towed away from the muddy field by "FALCK" and it took ages. It sucked too having to fight your way into the late busses at night.

icon_evil.gif I'd rather camp in a f...... plastic bag than out at Snoldelev icon_evil.gif . You're not supposed to use the gas installations in the caravans. No live fire. But by the look of the mostly empty cooking island, I reckon most people just carefully use their own cooking equipment in the caravans.PLEASE NO CARAVAN AREA OR CAMPING AT SNOLDELEV.

I got an confirmation from a roskilde official that it's gonna cost money to sleep at the caravan camping next year. The explanation was that each caravan takes more space than a tent so therefore a person who sleeps in a caravan is more expensive to the festival than a person who sleeps in a tent.

To me that's bullshit. Everyone should be treated equal, tent or caravan.

I guess the one good thing about this is that they probably work on having the caravan camp at walking distance to the festival area. It cannot cost money to use a caravan at the old caravan spot 7 km away. That would be hilarious.
