    • Well for those unable to attend the NEC hare's a taster of what's been going on. Tuesday saw Mark Beaumont demonstrating his ability to tow a Freedom caravan behind his cycle. Then later Rowland Rivron introduced him to those attending the NEC when Mark went on to describe some of his exploits over the years, including two round the world trips on his bicycle, the latest one being in 78 days following the fictitious trip by Phileas Fogg in the 1873 Jules Verne novel "Round the world in eighty days".    For those looking for something a little different, you may be interested in Bailey's new Discovery caravan. It is built on the now familiar Alu-Tec framework but has a plastic outer skin that is wrapped around the frame to provide radius to the rear corners, allowing the fitting of a wrap around inflatable framed awning designed specifically to fit the rear of the caravan.     Worth noting too is the longer A-Frame on offer that allows for a cycle rack or storage locker to be fitted to this Bailey.     Wednesday morning saw the introduction of Sabina Voysey who takes  over from Robert Louden MBE as the new Director General of The Camping and Caravanning Club when he retires at the end of October.   From the large motorhomes to tiny trailers there is something fro most interest at this years NEC show.

    • Hello folks.   We are Kev and Carolyn from Staffordshire. We have had motor homes and caravans and now own an A class Adria Sonic.  Love the truck and also the folk we have met in on our journeys. We have yet to try the continent but believe that the UK has still a lot more left to see. Hope you will accept us and look forward to being a part of this forum.   Kev and Carolyn
    • Mark Beaumont seen above, has become a household name through his documentaries about ultra-endurance and adventure.  Having smashed the circumnavigation cycling World Record twice in his career, he now holds this 18,000-mile title in a time of 78 days and 14 hours, averaging 240 miles a day.  His epic documentaries have taken viewers to over 100 countries, into the Arctic, the high mountains and around the Commonwealth, also surviving capsize in the mid-Atlantic.    Mark will be at the 2019 Motorhome and Caravan Show at the NEC in Birmingham on the opening day, 15th October and will be outside Hall 16 demonstrating to visitors and press how to tow a caravan with his bicycle. Mark will also appear at the Freedom to Go theatre at 11:30am and will give a talk about his epic adventures.
