CAMPING/CARAVANING/MOTORCARAVANING DGT (Spanish Department of Traffic) – Ministry of the Interior

Despite previous requests and negotiations conducted by ASEICAR (Spanish Association of Manufacturers and Dealers of RVs) on behalf of RV Associations with the DGT (Spanish Department of Traffic), the draft text on the “Reform of Traffic Rules in Spain“ does not include any reference to motorhomes or the parking arrangements for these vehicles. On the other hand, the speed limit has been increased to 120 km/h. As regards outfits (towing vehicles + caravan), the request to increase the speed limit to 100 km/h on motorways and dual carriageways has not been included.
The motorcaravanning group feels disappointed and betrayed by the Ministry of the Interior responsible for drafting the document since it appears that it violates the rights of caravanners and motorcaravanners. A complaint has been lodged against this draft text on behalf of consumers and ASEICAR.
