Success for caravan extravaganza

Posted by Linda Davidson.

Caravan water heaters owners will be interested to learn that a leading caravan trade show has pulled in its biggest crowd for 20 years.

According to the Hull Daily Mail, Hull's annual Caravan Extravaganza recorded the headline attendance last weekend.

The event, held in the city's Cottingham area, was packed with thousands of people and featured over 100 touring caravans and 150 holiday homes, with 17 leading manufacturers present. These included Carnaby Caravans, Willerby Caravans and the Swift Group.

Jim Hibbs, managing director of Coachman Caravans, told the newspaper: "In retail terms, this show is the biggest outdoor trade show in the caravanning calendar.

"The response has been great – I have been doing this for 20 years and I would certainly say this is the busiest yet."

Mr Hibbs also said that trade shows provided an excellent indicator of potential custom for the new season, and on this year's evidence it appeared robust.

The Caravan Extravaganza is organised by Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire Caravan Manufacturers' Association.
