NEC show gets of to a good start
Just as we go to Press with the new issue of Scottish Caravanner,the October show has just begun (its third year) this year it offers a vast array of motorhomes, caravans and holiday homes for visitors to see. Now with the doom and gloom around the show opened right in the middle of this but on the first day trading has been brisk. The other thing to is that its general – nothing was selling any better than the models on show so the divide of sales has thus proved broad so far.
Baileys stand was especially busy with the recent revised Rangers on show while Swifts brands to were also seeing good interest in both tourers and motorhomes. Explorer boasted a brand new stand which impressed visitors with its modern and open plan design. Coachman, Lunar and Fleetwood also were pleased with how the show had begun to.
The first day was also the Caravan Clubs open day to so crowds were further increased by this event. The club had a big launch of an eco friendly Airstream which will also feature on TV early next year, while Bailey had their customer design award tourer on their stand won by the Bramblings family. One maker was also their, Avondale caravans now no longer in business had made around 135 2009 models in which The Caravan Company based at Leicester had bought and were discounting up to £5,000 off retail prices. This was causing a stir amongst other dealerships with used values on traded in Avondales.
