Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show


Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show
NEC in Birmingham
18th-23rd February 2020

Have you been thinking about visiting the next Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show?

It makes a great day out, you will be able to learn about all the new innovations and trends within the camping industry and get the chance to try out new activities (there are lots to choose from).

The show takes place over 5 days, tickets cost £8 for an adult, £7 for a senior and children under 15 go for free.

There are nearby camping facilities if you fancy making it a mini road trip and having an overnight stay.

Take a look at the highlights from the last show to get an idea of what you can see and do.

Customer's Road Trip

Julie and Dean have been traveling in their new motorhome and recently sent us an email with some photos attached from their road trip.

"Thanks once again for the great service received today. Not only the investigation and replacing the battery but we really appreciate the time taken to explain to us about the battery workings, positioning and ideas on preserving the battery. Please pass on our thanks. Its all a learning curve and this information will definitely help us to get the most out of our van.  First class service as always. 

I’ve attached below a few photos where the van had been parked up for the night or for lunch. Perfect thing about van life is the places we can stop to eat or sleep and how easy we can adapt our plans. Great lifestyle choice but also a great van choice...6500 miles in 4 months!!

In 4 months we’ve stayed so many new places - Canterbury, Dobbs Weir, Herne Bay, Feuillères, Saint-Laurent-de-Céris, Argelès-Gazost, Puçol, Mazarrón, Villajoyosa, Mendigorría, Île-de-Oleron, Jumièges, Wallingford, Grenay, Orcet, Blanes, Rojales, Roses, Saint Usage,  Géraudot, Ressons-de-Long, Chilham although we’ve also visited many more.

We look forward to being customers of yours for many years to come and always recommend you at every opportunity."

Every road trip needs a decent Co-pilot

Motorhome VED debate


Urgent call to action:Motorhome VED debate secured in Parliament and we need your help today!

Ruth Jones MP (Labour, Newport West) has secured a Westminster Hall debate, entitled “Motorhomes and Vehicle Excise Duty”.

We urgently need MPs to attend the debate to demonstrate to Government the strength of support and how important this is to the motorhome industry.

Please email or call your local MP, today to urge them to attend and speak on your behalf in the debate.


Where: Westminster Hall, London

When: Tuesday, 21st January

Time: 4.00pm

We are also appealing to all our members and organisations impacted by the increase in VED, to write or write again to their local MPs and Business MPs (if they are different) asking for their support. This is easy to do, using our letter template.

We need your support more than ever if we are going to reverse this hike in VED.

Thank you,

The NCC Policy Team
