    Having read some scary threads about payload and the Burstner 747/748 in particular, I've just spent the last hour removing unecessary clobber from our van - don't want to fall foul of VOSA.

    So my question for all you hardened Malvern Show goers - is there anywhere to fill up when one arrives? I want to carry as little water as possible.

    The last time we came to Malvern was two years ago when we were considering buying out first motorhome.

    from memory there is a fill point outside to the left of the main pavilion...the first large building on the left as you enter the grounds.

    ask at the gate to confirm.

    There are random taps and bowsers dotted about.

    Look at Briseys post on the main malvern thread. He us suggesting arriving with as much as you can particularly Thursday because of demand on the supply.

    For those stopping over with us at the Robin Hood, travel empty and fill up before you leave in the morning. Its only a short way from the showground so a full tank wont be too expensive on your fuel bill
