ECCR - European Classic Caravan Rally 2019 
Booking for the ECCR is simple and easy...​​​​​

​Please don't wait until the last minute, limited space is available at the event!

As a member of the ECCC - European Classic Caravan Clubs, we take part in this annual event.

The ECCR - European Classic Caravan Rally will be held in Belgium in 2019, in Werchter, just outside of Bruxelles which is just 148 miles from the port of Calais. The 2018 event, which was in Germany on the Belgium border, brought together 221 caravans from all over Europe, including 23 Retro Caravan Club members, 18 from the UK.
The event is definitely one not to miss. We had a small convoy from Kent over to the Continent last year, with 13 caravans meeting in Belgium and convoying the last 80miles to the site, what an impressive site!

For 2019 we also have plans for a convoy in place... These plans may change slightly.


- Friday 24th May = Meeting in Kent.

- Saturday 25th May = Cross in two convoys, Ferry/Tunnel.

- Saturday 25th-Tuesday 28th May = Pre ECCR rally in Belgium.

- Tuesday 28th = We plan to arrive at the ECCR campsite.

- Sunday 2nd - 7th June = Post ECCR rally in France.

- Friday 7th June = Campsite in Calais

- Saturday 8th June = Cross via Ferry/Tunnel

Conveniently From the 24th May - 4th June the majority of UK schools are on holiday, most people with children will leave on the Sunday of the event.

***We must all arrive at the ECCR together, therefore please make sure that you can meet us at the Belgium campsite on or before Tuesday 28th at 11AM.***

Please make sure that you all have your ACSI camping discount card - This costs around £15 and will bring discounts of upto £10 per night for you.
