Why owning a caravan or motorhome is now 'cool'?

Thousands of visitors are expected to flock to the UK’s largest free caravan and motorhome show in Shrewsbury, where 2020 models will be revealed by leading manufacturers later this month.

The West Midlands Caravan & Motorhome New 2020 Model Show is being hosted by Salop Leisure at the company’s headquarters alongside Shrewsbury bypass at Emstrey from September 28 to October 6.

“Why wait an extra month for the NEC Motorhome & Caravan Show, when you can see a large selection of the new 2020 models for the first time right here in Shropshire?” asked Ed Glover, Salop Leisure’s marketing manager.

“It’s a chance to see the new models without having to fight the Birmingham traffic. Visitors can take their time to see all the new smart ideas, innovations and fresh designs on display and get their money down first, before the hoards get to see them and order in October. It’s a great day out for all the family.

“We are anticipating a bumper attendance this year after a very busy summer when many more British people opted to staycation rather than holidaying overseas because of the fantastic weather.

“The percentage of first-time buyers has increased by 25 per cent so far this year which shows that owning a caravan or motorhome is now considered cool because of the flexibility it offers.”

Salop Leisure will also be offering a special show discount on many lines as well as family entertainment on both weekends and free parking. Free tickets may be download at www.caravanevent.co.uk.

The company will have the largest annual outdoor display of new and pre-owned touring caravans, motorhomes, caravan holiday homes and luxury lodges in the UK.

There will be 50 new touring caravans from the Swift Group, up to 70 new caravan holiday homes and luxury lodges from ABI, Atlas, Carnaby, Regal, Swift and Willerby, 50 new and pre-owned motorhomes, more than 100 pre-owned touring caravans and new and pre-owned VW Campervans.

Included in the new models to be unveiled at the show are the new Willerby Ellesmere holiday home and Swift Celeste touring caravan. Both limited edition models, they have been designed specifically for Salop Leisure following market research by the company.

Other new holiday home special models to be launched include the Willerby Severn, Willerby Avonmore Oak, Willerby Kelston, Swift Burgundy, Swift Hafren, Atlas Chorus, ABI Wimbledon, ABI Blenheim and ABI Harlech.

Especially for the show, 13 caravan holiday homes and luxury lodges will be decorated with different themes to show potential buyers how versatile they are.

Visitors who decide to invest in a caravan holiday home or luxury lodge will be helped by a holiday park finder service to identify their ideal location, with more than 250 parks to choose from in Mid Wales and the Heart of England. Park representatives will be on hand to provide information

Experts will be on hand to guide first time buyers through the complete process of owning a touring caravan, motorhome, campervan or caravan holiday home.

Exclusive show discounts will extend to Salop Leisure’s accessory shop, which includes a large awning display.

Love Coffee restaurant will be serving up delicious snacks, meals and drinks throughout the show and staff at specialist plants centre, Love Plants, will have a wide selection of plants and advice to offer for autumn, winter and spring gardens.

Money raised by selling teas and coffees to customers during the show will be donated to the Lingen Davies Cancer Centre at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.
