The show features caravans, motorhomes, and holiday Homes of a wide variety. There is also plenty of accessories including some new to the market. It’s a great chance to also see some of the 2010 range of products that will be coming out at the start of next year.

The show is a great chance to just browse the odd product but there should also be some great offers and discounts only available at the show. The list of stands goes into the hundreds but there are also events throughout the day including a buying clinic, towing experience and many more.

If you fancy going there are even on site pitches to park up and hook up for the night. Tickets can be bought online or on the day for around £14.95, there is also a 6 day pass if you want to take your time or try and negotiate a price on a new caravan over a few days.

Head over to the official site for more details.

It looks as though the trend for “staycation” holidays is not just restricted to those on a budget. The Man United ace and England defender Rio Ferdinand was snapped taking a caravaning holiday at Presthaven Sands in Prestatyn, north Wales, with his fiancee and two sons.

While most footballers are known to holiday in countries such as Dubai and in resorts accredited with no lower than 5 stars, the celebrity opted to stay in a luxurious top of the range £400 caravan for a weekend at the end of August.

You can imagine the surprise of budget-restrained fellow holidaymakers to find the star holidaying at the same place!

According to Haven Holidays, the idol was happy to sign autographs and mingle with other fellow campers and caravanners. What a nice bloke eh?!
