    We are going to the Motorhome exhibition tomorrow (Wednesday). I love toys and the little stalls that sell them are a happy hunting ground for me. Has anybody spotted a little treat there that I would just love to have.

    Just for starters - I recently bought a tiny fold away table, about 18 inches by 12 inches. My other table took up so much space and was so fiddly that it rarely got used. My tiny table is out all the time on every trip. It only needs to hold a beer glass, a wine glass and 2 kindles.

    I do get quite fascinated by the guys with hand held branch choppers that make such a clean cut. Can't imagine why I would ever need one but they do draw me to watch the display.

    Went yesterday - very busy. Most of the accessories are in hall 12. Got a little fold up step for £3.99. Checked out the 5th wheelers (gorgeous but very big) and we've now decided to trade in our Autocruise Stardream for a (used) Autotrail Savannah. Enjoy your day.

    Keep your eyes open for a table for me,, we have an autoquest with a table that clips to the wall. Would be nice to replace that with something that can be used outside as well :thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:

    When we had our Autoquest we bought a table similar to This One. The X shaped legs meant it was still possible to get in and out of the dinette seats easily. It can be used outside easily and packs down into a reasonably compact beg.

    We were there yesterday. There were loads of MHs parked there. They appear to be using seperate areas in the normal car parks for MHs.

    Back on topic what toys did we buy? Three everlasting candles :Doh: I don't know how we ever managed without them :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
