Hundreds of new customers have attended a major spring caravan and motorhome show in Shrewsbury which opened last Saturday and runs until Bank Holiday Monday, May 7.

The West Midlands Caravan, Motorhome and Destinations Show 2018 is being held at Salop Leisure’s Emstrey headquarters. It’s the UK’s largest free caravan exhibition, showcasing the latest 2018 models from leading manufacturers.

“Online demand from new customers for free tickets has been at record levels this year and we experienced a very busy opening weekend,” said Ed Glover, Salop Leisure’s marketing manager. “We are anticipating a very successful show,”

For the first time, the annual show focuses more sharply on three distinct holiday destinations – Mid Wales Coast, Inland Mid Wales and the Heart of England. 

Show visitors are being encouraged to immerse themselves in nature in the beautiful countryside of inland Mid Wales where they can enjoy rock climbing, slate art, canoeing, mountain biking, paddle boarding, campfire cookery, orienteering, den building and treasure hunts.

In the Heart of England zone there aree falconry displays, a wildlife experience, food and wine, fishing and water zorbing.

To experience the Mid Wales Coast, parents and grandparents are encouraged to connect with their family at a giant sandpit and enjoy raft building, paddle boarding and a treasure hunt. 

The free activities run throughout the Bank Holiday weekend.

The show is also designed to be a one-stop-shop for customers seeking to buy a caravan holiday home, luxury lodge, touring caravan, motorhome or campervan. 

There are more than 150 new and pre-owned touring caravans, in excess of 50 motorhomes and campervans and more than 50 holiday homes and luxury lodges on display together with a huge range of accessories and awnings.

There is also a dedicated seminar area for caravan park operators, with nine guest speakers lined up yesterday (Tuesday), today and tomorrow.

The show has also seen the launch of Salop Leisure’s bi-annual Caravan Holiday Home Buyer’s Guide, ‘Your Journey’. The publication is designed to guide prospective buyers through purchasing and siting a caravan holiday home or luxury lodge.
