    Hi Folks we are thinking of travelling out to this http://www.messe-stuttgart.de/en/cmt/ for a long weekend. Anyone else been? Is the MH section bigger better that the February NEC MH show? We are not looking at British vans - so Hymer/Carthago/Burstner/Adria/Pilote etc.
    Cheers
    Bill

    Never been to Stuttgart show but IMO the one in Brum in February is pants. Last time we went caravans and motorhomes were combined with a smaller collection of boats and neither contingent was much cop. (n)

    Its the biggest and best..but if you missed it I'm sure Stuttgart will be far better then any UK show IF looking at European vans. I'm waiting on some info from someone in Germany regards this

    sounds like a good show to visit!

    "Hi Eddie,

    Stuttgart is the second biggest trade fair of the year. They are nearly as big as Düsseldorf, on this trade fair there are often new models presented, when the manufacturers don’t want to wait until Düsseldorf.

    Mit freundlichen Grüßen"

    We have some friends in Karlsruhe - might see if we can fit it in with that - take a fortnight in Jan to bimble down and bimble back - it's about 6 or 7 hours hours from Calais. Camping is 20 euros per night on site with EHU

    Easyjet flight departures arent great and would cost us a bomb in Taxi - remember earlier comment about 5* living ;)

    Flights are booked - BA were cheaper than German Wings and go from LHR which suits us.
    Just need to narrow our choices and open our minds (and wallet) now!
    Hymer/Burstner/Carthago not necessarily in that order. A-Class or Coachbuilt....

    Lunchtime 21st to morning 24th. May only go to the show on one day as I quite fancy a trip to the Porsche museum.

    Never turn down a coffee but with a Yorkshire-man and a Scot paying may be an issue...
    Looking at exhibitors already :)
