    It is a little early in the year yet and a long way for the majority of members to travel. It would be okay for me but I've ordered my new van and have nothing left to spend.....:wink:

    Hi ...I was thinking of going to this but a I have been to shows previously and some are really small with few dealers exhibiting. Does anybody know how many exhibitors will be attending?

    Regards

    Chris

    We'll probably go for a day. Be careful if it is really wet, the County show sank into the mud a year or so ago although they say they have improved things.

    We went to the last motorhome show a months or two back and it wasn't worth the fuel or the entry fee.one to miss definatley Evan if you live next door.
    Day was only saved by hot spud n curry in the Main cafe inside the venue

    We are going for the day tomorrow. I did ask Appletree- exhibitions why no discounted entry but no real answer (£7.50 each). I'm picking up a couple of electric bike batteries from AS bikes, otherwise we would not have gone.

    Been to Appletree at Exeter in the past and its a waste of money. No critical mass of dealers or accessories stands. I am only about 15 miles away and will certainly be giving it a miss!

    It is what it is, a smallish local Motorhome show. We support it as it is local, if it were 200 miles from Van Bitz HQ would we exhibit? Probably not.

    But with 80 odd exhibitors, with some of the biggest UK dealers exhibiting, it's a good way to look at Motorhomes without all of the hustle and bustle of a crowded NEC for example.

    We enjoyed a great BBQ after the show last night, and tonight we will all be hotfootting it back to watch the rugby, so all in all a nice mix of business and pleasure for a lot of the traders here.

    Made better in my opinion by a 10 AM opening.
