I'm sure many continental Euro residents have noticed that, after the end of March, there is an absolutely HUMONGOUS migration of Dutch registered caravans flooding across all points of the continent in a migration similar to that of the east African Wildebeest!

This seems to continue till very late in the year.

My question (seriously) is, once the migration is over where do all these seemingly millions of caravans go? Holland is only a small place, and I can't fathom that they have the square kilometrage to store them all!

Help me, people. I'm losing sleep over this!:confused:

Hibernation..

They then mate early next season and eventually cause chaos across many a country, as Daddy, Mummy and Kiddie caravan travel in single file for miles and miles without stopping for food..

Back to Holland, of course, where they form an integral part of the Dutch sea-wall defences during the winter. During the summer they're not needed, so they are released for holiday duties.

That's why they are only seen during the summer - Dutch law requires that they be returned to protect the low lying areas of the country before the first autumn gales.

If you Google Earth the coastline of Holland during the summer you'll probably spot that the land area reduces as the Dutch take most of it away on holiday.:E

they have caravan storage companies
Quite often a farmer stores them in an otherwise empty barn. There used to be one next to rwy 22 at Maastricht

They may appear to be caravans, but they are actually food stores. Your average Dutchman is notorious for taking all the supplies he needs for his 4 week summer holidays with him!

Have you not noticed the very similar migration of the Scandanavians which tends to be North to South? Tin tens clogging up the Autobahns for months!

....or the migration of English youf to the Costsas?
So thick/drunk/stoned they couldn't drive a car and caravan but go there in flying cattle transporters.
