Camper vans less than 3500Kg in weight are permitted to park in all the Pay and Display Car Parks.

Motorhomes and cars pulling caravans, which are too large to fit in the standard parking bays, are permitted to park within a parking bay marked for coaches in Sandgate car park Penrith.

Drivers of motorhomes and caravans are advised to purchase multiple tickets to cover the number of spaces the vehicle occupies. It is not permitted for people to sleep or camp overnight in caravans in the car parks.
