Wondering what it will be like and if we'll be the only people under 60 there. Have my heart set on buying a Camp-let trailer tent and am hoping will not be swayed into buying a caravan (although DH would protest).

I went a few years ago it is huuuge! I work with Caravans so I was there on a trade day BUT you will definitely not be the only ones under 60 grin

We went to the spring one, and it was brilliant. The free kayaking and Zorbing for kids was vvvv popular and lots of families.

We got a second hand Trigano trailer tent in the spring and it is amazing. I love it dearly

Sounds great, thanks. Am getting sadly excited. Good to know we'll not be the youngest. In what capacity do you work with caravans prosandcons, sounds interesting? CMOT which Trigano model do you have?

Ours is a Randger 515DL. The beds are along the length of the trailer so two king size beds. DH bought it on ebay, and its very tidy for its age

Sounds nice. Can't wait to get something we can go for short breaks in.

FreddieStarrAteMyHamster My dp and I run a business together but there is 2 sides of it, I run one half and he runs the other. Dp does Caravan/Mothorhome servicing and repairs and I run an online shop selling Caravan spares and accessories, We also sell a few caravans. It is mayhem this time of year smile

millimat Are you going to the lawns? I am going through the week when it is just trade but it is normally quite good. Nowhere near the size of nec though smile

Not this time, but have been to a couple before.

I love looking around nice, new caravans and motorhomes.

millimat what did you get?

I love it when we get new caravans in!

I persuaded my dp we needed a caravan last year, He hates it but I love caravanning grin

Its a shame their isnt a 'proper' Caravan section on here.

Maybe we should ask MNHQ for a caravan section?
We went specifically to view the new sterling range (the white and black interior) but ended up coming away with a coachman grin
