    We are going to collect our new MH in a few weeks time, having made a deposit and waiting for extras to be put on. I want to go to the MH show today at notts but Steve says no you might see something you like better. Who knows best?

    We went to the Motorhome Show at the County Showground Wadebridge Cornwall. After paying £8 each to get in it was really disappointing. There were few stalls, few Motorhomes to look at, and in all it took 20 minutes to walk round and see everything. On the way back to the car park we met a couple who asked us what it was like, they had noted that it wasn't a big event with few exhibits to be seen. They decided not to waste money on the £8 entrance fee.

    Steve said if I really wanted too we could go tomorrow, but after your kind help I think we've saved ourselves a two hour drive. Thanks friends

    We were there as traders. It was better than the last couple of years. Some traders did well others didn't. The motorhome wifi guy next to us had a good show but he was the only trader doing wifi gear at the show. The van sales were poor according to the dealers I spoke to.

    Hi

    The van next to us had a solar panel fitted at the show.

    On another issue, did anyone have their van weighed on arrival? Did you get the answer you were expecting or a nasty surprise?
