Showing off the luxury
THE great Aussie getaway will be celebrated at this weekend's 4WD, Caravan & Camping Show at the Coffs Harbour Racing Club.
From rugged 4WD bush camping ideas, to the latest in 4WD vehicles, accessories for off-road camper trailers right through to the ritzy way to camp - it will all be covered this Saturday and Sunday.
"We see each year caravans getting more and more luxurious" event organiser Peter Grimmond said.
"The trend appears to be continuing with the luxury in caravans almost becoming a standard.
"Features include full ensuite bathrooms, separate dining areas with designer kitchens. Electronic fridges, washing machines, LCD TV and solar power, just like they have at home.
In the upstairs and downstairs undercover areas of the show there's everything from gadgets and gizmos to kayaks, tents and car accessories. For those with a hunger we have excellent food and great coffee.
"We have also organized a free shuttle bus service as there is limited parking in Howard St near the race course," Grimmo said.
"So, the best place to park is at the "old" airport on Aviation Dr.
The shuttle bus service will pick up and drop off from here between 9.30am to 4pm both days.
Gates open from 10am to 4pm both Saturday and Sunday.
