TOMORROW (Tuesday, Oct 16, 2012) I'm off to the NEC's annual Motorhome and Caravan Show in Birmingham, which runs until Sunday. It's a chance for me to spend a few days ogling all the latest motorhomes and caravans in one place – well, several vast halls, actually.

After an hour or two of research, checking out the most – and least – awesome 'vans on show, it's always nice to sit down with a coffee. If I see you, I might ask you what what you're looking for at the show this year.

 

And if we have time to chat some more, we're bound to get round to discussing the freedom your motorhome or caravan allows you! Where do you like to go on tour? Do you use your 'van to pursue a hobby, follow a sport, see family and friends, or to travel and see the world? Or maybe you're just about to buy your very first 'van – and live the dream!

Hope to see you there!
