    Hi all,

    We are now booked in to Dusseldorf stellplatz for the nights of 3- 5 September. Anyone else likely to be there around the same time?

    We just want to have a look at what is new in the market. Famous last words - " we have no intention of buying yet"

    Can't make it this year as heading to Czech Republic for a tandem (cycle) rally.

    Did Dusseldorf last year and thoroughly enjoyed it, lots of vans we don't get in the UK, yes I know you are in France.

    Enjoy.

    If you have not done so already it is worth registering on the Caravan Salon Club and you can get discounted entry tickets BOGOF.

    You would be better staying on site at the showground, free shuttle bus to the halls, big marquee with bands playing (free) and cheap food.

    we plan to fisit the Salon 1st and 2nd and to stay at the salon's camping area.

    Can we purchase our tickets (for salon and camping) when we get there?
    I am refistered on their website but the system broke down when I tried to buy online... Might try again.

    You pay for camping when you are there, you pay one of the attendants each day and put the ticket on your window so your stay is flexible.

    We were there last year and bought the two days entry for the price of one ticket online, you have to join the Salon "Club" first.

    Yes, Lenny, that is where we have booked in. One of the 3500 places they reputedly have on offer. We booked tickets and parking on their web site.

    Edit to say we have printed off tickets for the salon and the parking and each has the obligatory bar code for scanning on arrival.

    As we never got to see the Hymer exsis 474 model on recent visit to Hymer factory show room...Hail damaged roof apparently. ( dont know why they dont make te GRP standard) looking to go to show...was going to fly and stay in a hotel ( have stayed on site in van and in hotel previous visits) but flights timing and price expensive. so might take the van. wife back at work so will have to go alone.

    have signed up for the club but fear it may be to late, previously have just turned up and its been OK? what next?
