Camping, Caravan & Motorhome Show: What’s worth seeing?


The bi-annual outdoor leisure show, the Camping, Caravan and Motorhome Show is next week. Are you going? Here are some highlights to help you plan your time at the show!

Bailey announces a new Alicanto Grande layout

Alicanto Grande

Bailey of Bristol launched its new Alicanto Grande, 8-foot-wide caravan range last year with three layouts. The range has proven so popular that Bailey added a fourth layout to the range, the Faro.

The Faro has a rear, transverse island bed layout with a central, en suite washroom. The caravan has Alde heating and an L-shaped kitchen (which adds more storage and surface space). Plus, it has a huge, 153-litre fridge, a solar panel, an external BBQ point and an AL-KO trailer control system.

The 4-berth Faro has a new lighting system, which adds a touch of class to the spacious, luxurious caravan.

Visit stand 3020 to see the new Alicanto Grande Faro.

Caravanning Clare!

Clare KellyClare Kelly, our Caravan Magazine editor, will be on stage to share her caravanning experiences (including some lively anecdotes) to help anyone who’s considering or new to the world of caravans.

Clare has suggestions for novice and experienced caravanners on how to get the most out of their caravan, and to enjoy their holidays even more.

See Clare on Wednesday 19th February at the Theatre in Hall 2.

Find the full theatre programme for the show here.

New Sprite Designs

Swift’s perennially popular Sprite and Super Sprite (their 8-foot range) have new designs inside and out. The Sprite’s have new external graphics, and a new soft furnishings scheme, which complement the wood-finish and slate-grey worktops.

Visit Swift in Hall on stands 2100/2200 in Hall 2



A leisure battery made in Yorkshire?

Aceleron Essential 100Ah lithium leisure battery

You don’t worry about the leisure battery in your caravan until it’s not working, do you? It’s an important part of your caravan, so make sure you pay it some attention.

And, if you’ve been looking to buy a new one, why not consider the Aceleron Essential 100Ah lithium leisure battery? It’s designed and made in Yorkshire. It’s not the most glamorous caravan accessory at the show, but it’s one that you need to understand.

Visit the RoadPro stand in Hall 5, 5105.


Love it level?

E&P caravan levellingIf you’ve ever slept in your caravan when it’s unlevel, you’ll realise the difference it makes to getting a good night’s sleep. And, it’s difficult to drain the water out of your kitchen sink if it has to move uphill to reach the plughole!

That’s why caravan levelling is one of the most important tasks to do when you arrive at your pitch. Most people do it by hand using a system of ramps, the jockey wheel and spirit level before lowering the corner steadies.

There is an easier, quicker way - an automatic caravan levelling system. E&P is a big name in the world of caravan levelling. They’ve got some new systems in time for the show.

Visit them on stands 3067 and 3090 in Hall 3a.


All electric is on its way

electric scooters

We’re way off electric cars which can tow caravans and that don’t cost a fortune. In the meantime, there other ways you can move around the campsite or near where you’re staying without blowing out exhaust fumes into the atmosphere.

The choice of electric bikes, scooters and skateboards is huge and continues to grow. If you fancy an ebike or escooter, you’ll find a selection at the show from companies like Ride and Glide, RooDog and Ribble Cycles.

Visit their stands to see what ‘sparks’ your imagination!
