    Is anyone going to this show in March ?
    We're popping along on the Sunday to get a few more ideas.
    Not seen anything about it on here. Just wondering if it's worth visiting.

    We went last year unfortunately most MH's are exhibited outside and when we were there the weather was not good. There was sufficient to see to justify the cost and the show would have been great but the underfoot conditions were atrocious spoiling the day for us

    It was mentioned in a general thread about Harrogate a couple of months ago but I don't think so otherwise.

    We went last year but weren't impressed. We were only there about an hour and a half so won't be going again.

    I think it was the first Harrogate show in 2013 show that was the snowy one. That was fun! Felt sorry for the traders outside, especially the chaps on the RoadPro stand.

    Last year the weather was about usual for the time of year, and from a trader's point of view there were plenty of people there, and it was pretty busy. There are a few dealers in the hall, but as oldflemo says, most dealers are outside, with accessories in the halls.

    It's different from most Warners shows, being for day visitors only. However you can stay in the camp site next door for the usual fee. It's also worth pointing out that dogs are not allowed in the halls, only on the grounds.

    You can keep up to date with the exhibitors list here.

    Went last year as daughter was looking for a small PVC and the 'show' was reasonably close.

    Won't be going again.

    If you go on to the outandaboutlive web site it gives a list of exhibitors and there ain't too many of them at the moment.

    Similar to last year I think.

    It's the exhibitors I feel sorry for. They pay out substantial amounts for stands and if the organisers don't deliver sufficient value for money to attract buyers they lose out.
