    Based on past experience just about everybody will be there. It is one of the cheaper show for exhibitors to exhibit at with a lot of the smaller manufacturers showing up that you do not see at the more expensive shows.

    Gewoonlik koop ek maar by computicket. Enige checkers en house and home het kiosk. Daar is tye wat die kaartjie tou by Moreson lank staan.

    last year pretty much all of the big one were there.

    Moenie julle tyd mors met die great outdoor show/holiday makers later in die jaar by Sandringham plaas nie. Dis mors van geld.

    Their website is not of much help to see who will be exhibiting.

    Previous years they had a full layout of where each exhibitor was and a full list of all the exhibitors.
    Im starting to wonder why there is nothing this year.

    Seem to remember that last year managed to find list but terrible website to find anything.

    Also programme not yet finalized with only 23 days to go

    BUT still worth going, have been last 4 years and enjoy it every time even though not in the market for anything( Motorhome would be nice)

    So, went to the Expo again.. Some products are just getting bigger, dunno if its better, that Bushlapa Gravelroadster, huge! 2.5ton!

    What I did miss is a display of DC-DC chargers, maybe they were there, but I did not see it..

    But, yes, everything was there, if you are new to camping, that was the place to be.

    I think I also missed some exhibitors.They really need to spread it out a bit more.Some areas the different stands were on top of each other.
    Nice to see the Expo growing.The heat did get to a few people.

    Jip, I had some solar solutions on show. Sat was murder with the heat, but some good leads. The stalls were quite cramped and I think another venue may be called for.
    Unsold specials will be advertised on the forum tomorrow.

    My experience as a first timer.

    From a practicality point of view the sites could have been organized better as the smaller companies can easily be missed in the confusion.

    The two "local" brands had huge presence and both Bush Lapa and Conqueror dominated the scene.

    Of all the campers/vans there the Bush Lapa Baobab would be my first choice (I am bias as I own a Miskruier) But for the size and price it is a nice unit that would be perfect for a family of 4-5 people. (also liked the new miskruier)

    The Conqueror Companion Recce is also a very nice van and with its wing covering the side bed it will make a huge difference in temperature of that bed. But the price (for its size) is a bit eye watering.

    My wife (and friends wife) loved the Afrispoor Cheetah. They loved all the small shelves and doors (esp in the kitchen)

    Another interesting van was the Bushwaka Sundowner. Lots of people liked it. The nearly 360'C wing was a hit. For me the biggest design flaw is the fact that the fridge is located right at the other side of the kitchen and would be a deal breaker for me.

    It was loads of fun.

    Thanks to all the suppliers for the effort.

    I agree the Bushwakka Sundowner also impressed swambo, as dit the afrispoor cheetah. But we are in the market for a trailer and I was very disappointed that the options were extremely limited. Even some of the manufacturers that attended, didn't have their camping trailer option there. Not sure if I'll be going again next year, will make sure of the exhibitors first.
