While the country continues to struggle in the face of economic uncertainty, the caravan industry appears determined to prevail. This year has seen a raft of product launches from manufacturers, and dealers are looking to excite buyers in 2012 with these new models.

One dealer in particular is hoping for a buoyant start to the New Year, after signing up for Boat and Caravan Show 2012 in February.

Nottingham based Kimberley Caravan Centre is one of the UK's leading caravan retailers, specialising in sales of Coachman, Elddis and Sterling. The company will be displaying an extensive range of 2011 and 2012 models at next year's show, giving visitors an opportunity to get up close to the latest ranges.

For lovers of the outdoors

In 2012 Boat and Caravan Show enters its 51st year, and has continued to evolve through offering events for lovers of outdoor leisure. If you're a caravanner who loves hiking, narrowboating, canoeing or exploring the UK, the February show promises a range of activities and stands to entertain and inform.

Kimberley's managing director Chris Lowe spoke warmly of how the show appealed to both newbies and experienced caravanners. "There is something on show for everyone, whether looking to purchase for the first time or looking to upgrade," he said.

Meanwhile Boat & Caravan Show's exhibition director Andy Gibb embraced the signing as proof of "the reputation the event has amongst the industry". As with previous years, he hoped to offer visitors "an experience combining purchasing opportunities with features and activities to keep the whole family entertained throughout the day".

UPDATE: On 2 November, the organisers Ocean Media announced that Boat and Caravan 2012 has been cancelled.
