THE MANCHESTER CENTRAL Caravan & Motorhome 2011 show is now well under way and Practical Caravan has been on hand giving advice and tips since Thursday. 

 

There's a chance to enter a competition on our stand to win an all-inclusive caravan or motorhome trip to France worth £2300.

 

Expert advice 

Our resident experts Andrew Jenkinson and Nick Harding are also available to talk tourers, towcars, sites and accessories. You can find us on Stand 27 in Hall 3, which we're sharing with our sister title Practical Motorhome

 

Although it's slightly smaller in scale to the February and October NEC caravan shows, Manchester Central Caravan & Motorhome has been a busy one for the dealers. Glossops, Campbells and Stewart Longton are out in force, while Swift Group has a large stand featuring a wide range of models.

 

Accessories proving popular

There's no shortage of accessories being showcased either. Quest Leisure Products, Yeomans Leisure and Riversway Leisure have the larger stands, but caravan cleaner companies One Dry Wash and Spray 'n' Shine have attracted the crowds too.

 

As always, it's been a pleasure dispensing advice to the public and we've noticed that a large proportion of people who visited our stand are completely new to caravanning, which is great news for the industry. 

 

You haven't got long left to sample the action this year in Manchester, as the doors close today at 5pm.
