We have twice previously hired a campervan in Frankfurt and travelled in total for 16 weeks and 20,000 kms staying in campgrounds. Now is the time to circle wider and travel basically the old iron curtain from Poland to Croatia. We are very comfortable with the campervan/campground arrangement but feel leasing/accomodation would be a cheaper option. Also we feel the rental company would baulk at the number of exemptions it would have to give even though it has done so in the past on a smaller scale.
We would still have to find insurance obviously. So far I have gleaned that travelling with foreign plates attracts attention from the authorities, thieves and the disgruntled and that "vignettes" are common place.
Are then any other problems of note ?
