If you’re new to motorhoming or if you’re thinking about buying or renting a motorhome but aren’t sure what the choices are, you may want to take yourself along to the Birmingham NEC this week (16th – 21st October).
For the second year running, the NEC is playing host to International Caravan & Motorhome, one of the UK’s largest exhibitions of new motorhomes, caravans and every imaginable accessory (plus a few you won’t have thought of…).
Last year’s exhibition attracted more than 72,400 visitors and the organisers expect attendance this year to be even better. If you’d like to make a proper trip of it, the Caravan Club are providing full onsite camping facilities including electric hookup and water. The campsite will be open from Tuesday – Sunday inclusive.
All the major UK motorhome manufacturers will be present, as will some of the most popular providers of base vehicles – including Fiat. Fiat’s Ducato van chassis is the most popular base vehicle for motorhome conversions in the UK and Fiat have promised to have a selection of new model Ducato and Scudo vans on display, including a top-spec, 3 litre/160bhp model.
If you’ve got any questions or would like to book tickets in advance, you can contact the International Caravan & Motorhome 2007 booking office on 08701 288 288 or visit their website at http://www.caravanshows.com/page.cfm/Link=1/
If this week is too short notice for you or Birmingham isn’t convenient, why not put the Manchester Central Caravan & Motorhome Show 2008 in your diary instead? It offers a similar wide choice of vehicles and accessories and will be on in Manchester Central (formerly the G-Mex) from 17th – 20th January, 2008.
