Other information and rules about motorhomes and caravans
You can temporarily park a motor vehicle right next to the road. But only on condition that the ground is not damaged. The landowner must also not be hindered in his activities. Nor may you set up your motorhome or caravan in such a way as to obstruct or disrupt traffic.
There is no rule that says how long you can stand in the same place. When it comes to tents, the limit is "a few days a week" and far from residential buildings. A caravan crew or a mobile home is probably perceived as more disturbing than a tent, and the demand for consideration is also greater. You should therefore not set up your caravan or mobile home near the landowner's residence without permission.
On a public road
In rest areas and signposted parking spaces, it is basically permitted to stand for a maximum of 24 hours on weekdays. On Saturdays, Sundays and weekends, you are generally allowed to stay until the next weekday. But rest areas and parking spaces are mainly intended for temporary rest and rest, and not for overnight stays. There, other rules may apply according to local traffic regulations. In that case, it is indicated on an additional board under the P mark at the rest areas.
Whoever owns a private road can decide for himself whether traffic with motorized vehicles should be permitted. The owner has the right to prohibit motor traffic, or certain types of motor vehicles. A ban on motor traffic on a single road must be "marked with a road sign or in another clear way", as stated in the Traffic Ordinance. Even a homemade sign "No RVs" must be respected.
This applies in nature reserves
Special rules in national parks and nature reserves
Special rules apply in national parks and nature reserves. It is almost always forbidden to drive motorized vehicles on roads in the area. It may be permitted to spend the night with a caravan or mobile home in parking lots adjacent to reserves or national parks. Inside the areas, special regulations apply which usually limit the right of access. What applies can be seen from the notice boards that are posted in the area. Otherwise, you get information from the municipality or the county administrative board.

Is it allowed to freecamp?
In Sweden, you can park your motorhome for 24 hours (on weekdays, otherwise over a weekend) in a parking lot and spend the night in it, unless there is a sign that says otherwise. Parking is not the same as camping, which means, for example, folding out the awning and setting out a nice chair in the sunset, so it is not allowed in a parking lot.
