NEARLY 300 of the latest touring caravans, caravan holiday homes, lodges and park homes will on display at the annual Caravan Extravaganza at The Lawns, Cottingham, on Saturday and Sunday 8th and 9th September.

Other exhibitors at this largest outdoor caravan show in the UK range from individual holiday parks in the UK and overseas, to park groups, decking companies, furniture suppliers and a variety of awnings and accessory companies – featuring everything from electric bikes to motor movers – plus a massive indoor accessory shop.

It is the first opportunity to see the new season’s – 2019 – models from a majority of the major manufacturers. This event, which will be officially opened by Chairman of the East Riding Council along with the Lord Mayor of Kingston upon Hull on the Saturday morning, attracts well over 20,000 visitors each year.

The show has been running for more than 40 years at The Lawns, making it the longest running caravan show in the UK. It is organised by the Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire Caravan Manufacturers’ Association (HERCMA) which comprises five local manufacturers: ABI UK, Carnaby Caravans, Coachman Caravan Company, Swift Group and Willerby.

The association invites other manufacturers to take part as space allows; others featuring holiday homes, lodges and/or park homes this year are: Aspire Park and Leisure Homes, Atlas Leisure Homes, Oakgrove Park Homes, Omar Park and Leisure Homes with Wessex Unique Lodges and Park Homes, Pathfinder Park Homes, Pemberton Leisure Homes, Prestige and Homeseeker Park and Leisure Homes, Regal Holiday Homes and Tingdene Homes. Coachman, Elddis (Erwin Hymer Group), Lunar Caravans and Swift will be showing their latest touring caravans.

In line with trends for more spacious accommodation in both holiday lodges and park homes, there will be a record number of “twin units” on display this year: nearly 40 of them from 13 manufacturers.

In addition to the well-stocked accessory shop run by Catterick Caravans Leisure World, many dealerships such as Kenmore Caravans, Robinsons Caravans, Wandahome Knottingley, Wandahome South Cave, Yorkshire Coast Caravans and Catterick will have their own stands while representatives from many other dealers and parks will be available to talk to on the stands of various manufacturers.

The National Caravan Council and the British Holiday and Home Parks Association have stands where advice will be freely available and charities such as the RSPB, the RNLI and Cats Protection will be there as well as the Police Crime Prevention Team. First Aid will be provided by Heart Medical.

To keep the youngsters occupied, there will be a small funfair, face painting and balloon modellers, and there will be live music as well as plenty of refreshment stalls, with full meals available in The Lawns Centre.

There’s something for everyone, so if you are looking to buy a new caravan or something to use in or outside one, or looking for great places to stay, this is the place to go.

A free show guide is also given out to all visitors to help them find their way around the huge showground.

Opening hours are from 9am until 5pm on both days. There is free parking with space for more than 4,000 cars; admission costs £3 a person or £5 for a family – and dogs are welcome too (provided they are kept under control on a lead and all poop is scooped).

This is an outdoor event and sensible footwear is advised – so please don’t wear flip-flops/open-toed footwear; the ground is uneven in places and can become a little slippery in wet weather.
