“Did you know?” at the show

I’ve been coming to the Motorhome and Caravan Show (or its predecessor) for far more years than I care to remember, but I’m pleased to say I learn something new every time. As a brief respite from the caravans, motorhomes, awnings, et al in the 11 halls (and nearly 400 exhibitors) I’ve taken a moment to jot down a few things I’ve discovered this year.

Top ten models to see at the Motorhome and Caravan Show 2017

Today the Motorhome and Caravan Show opens its doors to visitors excited to get a first look at the 2018-season’s best new caravans, motorhomes and trailer tents, all under the same roof. The show runs from 17-22 October at its regular home, the NEC Birmingham, and there are plenty of great reasons to drop in and take a look around.

Did your new tent, caravan or motorhome work?

As Test Editor for Camping & Caravanning magazine I’m asked one question on a fairly regular basis – why don’t you comment on poor quality workmanship in On Test features? Unfortunately, it’s normally asked by someone who’s had a bad experience of buying a new unit.

A European camping adventure is a great escape

The mid-afternoon September sun glinted through the trees, warming my face as I sipped a deliciously strong coffee. Surrounding me were quaint, picturesque French farm buildings in a peaceful courtyard, and beyond lay a rolling forest of pines. The only sounds to be heard were the birds, the occasional clink of teaspoon on saucer and the quiet patter of French being spoken inside the restaurant where I was dining al fresco.
