4WD, Caravan and Camping Show comes to Coffs
MOST of us dream of holidaying and waking to beautiful sunrises in fantastic surroundings, but for some it's now their way of life.
The Coffs Coast 4WD, Caravan & Camping Show recognises the shift in lifestyle thinking and is now catering for those who not only want to holiday just a couple times a year, but for those grey nomads who stay away for months on end.
"If you asked me 10 years ago whether I thought we would be selling luxury caravans with full ensuite bathrooms, separate dining areas with designer kitchens, my answer would have been no," Perkins Caravans dealer principal Craig Blackler said.
"We see the growing trend now a reality and people expect certain levels of luxury in their caravans.
"From electronic fridges, washing machines through to LCD TV and solar power, just like they have at home,"
At the show this year, you can inspect the rugged 4WD bush camping items including the latest in 4WD vehicles and accessories along with off-road camper trailers.
For those who prefer to stay "on road", there are pop top caravans through to the super luxurious vans.
Gadgets and gizmos are also part of the show to make your "away from home" experiences even easier.
Plus, in the upstairs and downstairs undercover areas of the show, you see everything from jet skis and surf boards along with where to go and stay on your next holiday.
For those with a hunger, there will be food vendors including great coffee, tasty food and beer and wine tastings.
"We have reached our 12th Coffs Coast Show 4WD, Caravan & Camping Show and we welcome everyone to come out to the beautiful Coffs Harbour Racecourse and enjoy the show," event organiser Peter Grimmond said.
Gates open at the Coffs Harbour Racecourse today and tomorrow from 10am-4pm.
Entry to the show is adults $12, concession $10 and children (5-16) $6.
