    Well it's that time of year again, I for one am getting excited about the big show in Dusseldorf, for anybody that has not been it's simply the biggest collection of Motorhomes and motorhome related items that you are ever likely to see under one roof. You will see everything from everything from entry level coachbilt's and van conversions to some rather swanky £million beast and multi wheel drive expedition truck in between.

    The show runs from 27th August to the 4th September, there is overnight parking on site for around 2000 motorhomes and a caravan centre to empty waste tanks WC and get fresh water.

    If you intend on going it is worth registering with the caravan salon club which is free and this then entitles you to discount tickets for the show €10 for two days entry.

    This seems to be the best place to register and then when you have your membership number you can buy tickets, some other pages are all in German and may not be as easy for some, including me.

    We are going although the decline in the exchange rate is causing us to rethink our purchasing plans :(

    I know what you mean, but still worth having a look and keeping an eye on the exchange rate.

    My Dad dove me round doing deliveries for my business, after I'd had my hernia operation.

    "what's that noise?" He said, as we were driving along

    'You're been driving with the wing mirror in the hedge for the last couple of miles' I told him

    First and last time I ever let anyone drive me about - made a speedy recovery too

    We are going this year the last two times we have been have ended up with a new van. Having a bit of trouble with the financial controler at the moment I'm working on her.
    When we ordered the current van Euro was 1.17 & 1.26 when we paid for it, still a lot cheaper than buying in the UK.

    How long would it take to drive once I am through the tunnel?
    Will be taking the car but looking at Google there seems to be big delays After Ghent if I went that way.
    Did think about Southampton to Düsseldorf if not but will have to check how far the show is from the airport.

    We used Aldi talk when we were there, bought it ( obviously) from the counter at Aldi. From what I remember to activate it you needed access to Internet and to put in a German address - we used the Stellplatz one. It took an hour or so to activate but then worked fine .

    It's certainly noisy staying there due to the 06:15hrs take offs from the airport, but you soon get used to it. Just back from 14 nights there, we paid €30 a night but the price does vary according to the show that's on. Wifi is poor all around the Messe and there's nothing at the camping place, we were in P1. A bike is very useful to get down town which from the Messe is S.East down the river, about 20mins.

    I seem to remember that it was less than 15 euros and that included a 10 euro credit, sorry can't remember more than that.
