WE CAN'T QUITE believe it’s nearly that time of year again but, yes, The Caravan & Motorhome Show is just around the corner – and we’re looking forward to it already. Will we see you there?

Compare and contrast caravans at the Manchester show

 

In case you’ve missed the essential details, the 2014 show will be at EventCity Manchester from 23 to 26 January. As ever, whether you’re shopping for a new van, after that hard to find accessory or seeking ideas to inspire your next holiday, just a few minutes on the show’s website tells us we are going to need to don comfy, flat footwear to enable us to roam the many halls and peruse the multitude of stands.

 

Product Finder is new for next month’s show and if you’re in the market for a new caravan and want to see the latest and greatest, this could be your friend. Not only does the website detail the touring caravan manufacturers that are going to be there, it lists full details of over 100 models that will be displayed – and we’re told this is merely a snapshot of what will be on show. You can also see where each stand is so you can plan your journey round the show in advance.

From the hands-on Wedgwood Visitor Centre to breathtaking stately homes and fun filled family days out, there’s surely something for everyone and plenty to get you thinking.
