Could anyone help with parking in Spain?

Not definite yet but I'm thinking of trailering 2 bikes down to Southern Spain in January and leaving the car and trailer in Spain while we take the bikes over to Morocco for 10 days or so.
Could anyone suggest or even offer a place for me to leave the car and trailer please?

Easiest to arrange will be on a campsite--it's not as if they will be overrun with tents in January.

Try googling for camping + algeciras. Here's two sites that are open all year round: camping ALgeciras.

I have a house in Spain, but unfortunately its not where you want to leave your car and trailer.

The parking system in Spain is that white marked spaces are free to park in, blue are payable at a meter and yellow are a definite no-no. If you find white marked bays then you could leave your vehicle parked on them. The only problem here is of course security.

Also most hotels rent spaces in their underground car parks. These should be cheap in january and will be very secure.

Car & trailer parking

Hi, also planning Jan trip to Maroc, but in the same position of trying to find suitable parking around the Malaga region. Will perhaps try a rural place to overnight and then try to make a deal with owners beforehand. If you do find anything, would appreciate greatly,
Thanks
