The club was formed in 1984 as an “owners club” by a group of enthusiastic caravanners. In 2008 the club opened it’s membership to ALL marques of touring caravans and motor homes.

We welcome new members to join us to experience the freedom, fun and friendly atmosphere of the rally field.

If you’d like to “dip your toe” before taking the plunge and joining the club, please feel free to drop into any of our rallies for a cup of tea and a chat. Check out the “Rally Info” area (see left hand menu) and rally programme to find a rally near you.

We look forward to meeting you on the rally field soon!!

Extended Rallies 2022:

The planned extended rallies in Kent and North Devon are being trialled as “pre-paid” rallies - details of the pre-payment process can be found in the Member’s Area in the “key documents” section.

AAOCC are a club whose members organise rallies that take place throughout the year.

The majority are at weekends. Longer rallies - anything from four or five days to a fortnight - take place at Bank Holidays and during the main holiday periods.

We aim to offer a varied rally programme that caters for everybody in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

A number of the rallies are “open” to ACCEO Personal Members and to members of other ACCEO Affiliated clubs. (Use the “Non AAOCC Booking” button below.)

The rally programme and Member’s Handbook can be accessed via the buttons below.

The former Rally Handbook has been “re titled” as the “Member’s Handbook”. It is provided in two parts:–

Providing the Handbook in this way has the potential to greatly reduce workload, printing and postage costs

For those members that require them, a hard copy of the handbook can be provided by the Rally Secretary ( on request.


Booking on to a rally can be done “on-line” or by submission of a Booking Slip to the named Rally Marshal.
