    Just spotted this on the website for the NKC Camper Experience motorhome show in Holland next month.

    As well as the usual manufacturers, dealers and accessories stands, they are also offering the following to visitors:

    • Test drives of a range of motorhomes on site
    • Skid pan practice (in your own motorhome, I believe)
    • A motorhome "gymkhana" course (again, in your own motorhome, I believe)
    • Motorhome-related workshops
    • Test drives of electric bikes

    They also have what looks like a competition for the best technical invention for the motorhome (strange translation by Google but seems to have some thing to do with a mad inventor character from Donald Duck cartoons! :Laughing:)

    Would love to see some of the above at any of our shows! It must be quite easy to set up workshops either by MMM staff if a Warners show, or by invited trades people at any other show. Maybe things like how to change your bulbs to LEDs, fitting reversing cameras, preparing for winter, etc. It only needs a quick browse of this forum to find lots of subjects for workshops!

    Google Translation-

    What can you expect?

    The ultimate camper experience
    Camper Village with as many as 2,100 campers on paddock (the magical inner courtyard of the circuit)
    Access to pit lane and garages
    Inspirational activities include:
    - Driving Test with campers of different brands on the circuit
    - Agility Parcour for campers (isn't that 'extreme running?)
    - Self participate in a skid course
    - Workshops on various topics
    - Various sports activities
    - Test Drive with electric bikes
    - Special activities for children
    Root willy election (technical inventions to the camper, only NCC members who have booked a weekend package, can participate)
    Squares passion for sharing experiences motorhome
    TT exhibitors in Hall and pitlane
    Before but also by "strange camp"!

    Keep an eye on this site for an update in the program!

    It also still want to live?

    Ha! :Laughing:

    Yeah, "Root Willy" is "Willy Wortel" or the mad inventor from the Donald Duck cartoons.

    Maybe they're looking for the most Heath Robinson addition to motorhomes?

    I think the "strange camp" translation possibly means "before and after" unusual motorhomes.

    Have to admit I'm tempted to pop over...

    By the way, camping is not included

    Hoi Paul and Ineke,

    So, have you been to this show before? What's it like?

    Worth a visit? It sounds great.

    Hi Steve,

    As far as I know this is organized by the NKC to celebrate their 35th "birthday" dont know if it is going to be continued in the next years.

    It is organized on the, for Dutch, famous TT motor racing track in Assen . Tickets are rather expensive (Euro 16/pp for a day) but looking at the program it could be money well spent. There is no camping facility on the spot so you will need a camping or camperplace nearby. (Wilding is and absolute NoNo in Holland)

    Assen is about 285 km north of Antwerp.

    We will not visit it though, but would certainly go if I needed to replace my camper.

    I am not a Willy Wortel and got two left hands, when fixing something i always have leftovers

    Love this one

    Paul and Ineke
