The NEC Caravan and Motorhome Show is one of the biggest events in the Winchester Caravans calendar, and we always look forward to taking the trek up to busy Birmingham. And 2015 was no different. After being chosen to represent Bailey and Lunar caravans, myself, James Mainwaring, Lee Small and Peter Southwood ironed our pristine branded shirts and packed our suitcases for the 120 mile trip.

Not only did the 13-18 October mark Winchester Caravan’s first appearance at the largest leisure vehicle show where people go caravan crazy, but there was a lot to shout about from the 11 massive exhibition halls at the biggest venue of its kind in the UK.

In fact, it finally dawned on us that caravans can officially break records - and that is something to be proud of! And no we aren’t trying to pitch this year’s Guinness Book of World Records for bedtime reading on one (or many) of your caravan adventures.

We were lucky to see the legendary Lego caravan to celebrate 130 years of leisure caravanning. Although the thought of treading on a Lego brick might make you wince in pain, let alone 215,000, this caravan construction is different. It comes with electric lights, running water, a fridge… and toothbrushes.

Yes it’s remarkably lightweight and very unique. But we know what you’re thinking – the Lego range isn’t as catchy as Lunar. So we dragged ourselves away and back to both stands jam-packed with the sought after 2016 ranges. And what a fantastic response we received!

Visitors were really excited to see what changes have been made and what specifications were on offer. And because we are so passionate about the collections, we were more than happy to reel off what’s so special about our caravans.

We particularly loved seeing new owners of a caravan from such an amazing range leaving our stand happy and excited about taking a trip with their brand new purchase.

If you didn’t manage to come and see us at the NEC Caravan and Motorhome show, take a look on our website to see all our new and pre-owned caravans from Bailey and Lunar, as well as awnings and outdoor equipment. We don’t want you to miss out!

Is it too early to put next year’s NEC Caravan and Motorhome Show on the calendar?
