Hi All, New to the site so please bare with me, i am currently in the UK and have my appointment for my D7 Visa next week, as part of the application i need to demonstrate that i have accommodation.... but i dont want to be tide to one place as i have a motor home and  was intending to see various areas and stay in my camper. 

Any advise or contact with a friendly letting agent would be appreciated.

Thanks Dave

Unless I have misunderstood, from previous posters you have to show you have a contract to rent a place, for 6 months or more recently a year. 
This is because you need to show you are serious about living in Portugal. I may be completely incorrect but I would have thought a campervan, as by its nature a mobile vehicle, wouldn’t count?
