I am off to Spain on the 8th of March, going into Santander. I have about half a day to head south but as I don't drive fast it won't be far. As the weather is so changeable can anyone reccomend a campsite or aire with hook up so I can get electric for heating in my tiny basic van. NOT Burgos, I stayed there last year, and as the campsite is by a river it was constantly shrouded in fog and freezing!! Thanks in advance.

If you want to go as far as Salamanca, we spent a couple of nights at Camping Ruta de la Plata. It’s an ACSI sight, Pretty basic but perfectly fine, close to a village and on an excellent bus route to Salamanca.

Don't think You will need heating in March. Been in Spain 2 months and not used it once .even when storm gloria hit. Thanks for that, however I will be landing in Santander which will have the same weather as the uk. Where are you at the moment?

It is a bit further than I would have liked but have found the website just in case.

I think you will be fine if you get a good blanket Sorry I won't. I have double sleeping bag. But it's not the sleeping that's the problem its sitting in a freezing van from 5 or 6 o clock until bedtime, even with fleece pants and jacket. I could sit in my sleeping bag but it's not much fun. Mornings are freezing too. I realise my old van doesn't have sufficient insulation which is why I don't use it in the winter. My first trip will be in March and for any unusually cold weather I am happy to pay for hookup.

Ok sorry , you seam to have tried hard. For us its the darkness that is not good for winter travel. Having said that , we have a spanish casa with no insulation or central heating . It is cold so we use the blankets to get through until the clocks go back and its time to travel.
