After being disrupted by the pandemic, the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show returns to the NEC in Birmingham this week.

Running from February 22nd to 27th, the hotly anticipated event is sold out and there’ll be no tickets available on the door.

Luckily, representatives from CaravanTimes are on site to bring you the latest news from the show, which is the highlight of the leisure vehicle year.

Stretching across five halls of the extensive venue, visitors will get the chance to view over 750 new models of caravans, motorhomes and campervans for 2022.

That means you’ll be able to step inside the latest offerings from the likes of Adria, Bailey, Coachman and Elddis before other enthusiasts.

There’ll also be holiday homes, folding caravans and trailer tents on display for those looking for something a little out of the ordinary.

Among the many benefits of attending the show is a chance to meet leading manufacturers and dealers to pose your pressing questions.

There’ll be experts from across the industry offering tips and advice on all sides of the leisure vehicle lifestyle, from purchasing a van to accessories and even where to hit the road.

Chat to the people who run some of the UK’s best holiday parks and campsites to get inspiration for your next holiday.

The NEC has even had an indoor pool built, giving you the chance to have a go at some of the sports popular with caravanners, including paddleboarding and kayaking.

Two of the UK’s most well-established names in the business – the Caravan and Motorhome Club, and the Camping and Caravanning Club – will be giving guidance on towing and manoeuvring your vehicle.

Dan Cartwright of CaravanTimes has had a sneak preview of the show, as he’s been there during the setup.

He said: “The Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show is set to be bigger and better than ever this year and it’s fantastic to be back.

“There are so many interesting technologies on show in the latest models of motorhomes, with some even able to accommodate motorbikes.

“What’s also exciting to see are the new family van conversions that can happily sleep a family of four, as well as transporting things like bicycles. All of this in a six to seven-metre leisure vehicle is impressive.”
