Date of Stay: 19th April to 21st April A few years since I had been to this and last year was a wash out with the rain by all accounts. Very enjoyable weekend with lots to see and we really enjoyed the Saturday night entertainment. There is something strangely comforting watching a bunch of 60 and 70 year olds, some on mobility scooters, jigging up and down to the sound of The Tremeloes and The Bachelors!
Highlights for me: The Bobil shop with great Motorhome gifts run by Catherien and Chris of The World is Our Lobster fame, (check out the great gifts – I have to wait till my birthday in May to receive mine but I believe they are hidden in a safe place waiting for me in the motorhome); the very nice man from Nature Pure who sold me a new cartridge and explained why my tap wasn’t working the way it was originally, (it was missing a pin and he is sending me one FOC in the post) and finally I suppose just the very well organised nature of the whole event. There was loads to see, plenty to do and it was also relaxing. Time allowing, we will be going nagain next year and will no doubt rally with the friendly people from Motorhome Facts.
My vote for rudest trader at the show hands down was the man selling Thule equipment who other than taking my money had no interest in helping or discussing and was more interested in getting someone to get him a can of pop. He still managed to get £30 out of me for a wall organiser. Guess I should have told him to organise himself!
