Scottish Caravan Show, SECC, Glasgow
The Scottish Caravan, Motorhome & Holiday Home Show at the SECC in Glasgow is a date that every Scottish caravanner (and Shield caravan insurance customer) doesn't want to miss. That's because it's the main Show that also gives an indication as to how good sales will be in Year 2013.
Over four days the Glasgow Show packs as much in as any showgoer could ask for.
The SECC in Glasgow is a great venue for the Scottish Caravan Show.
For instance, those in the market for a holiday or park home can have a good look at availability of the latest models from the major manufacturers. Plus also some manufacturers use the Scottish Show to launch new models such as Victory Homes Gainford range and the new Willerby Cameo range - the latter getting its first showing in Scotland. (Pemberton, Atlas, Swift, A.B.I, Home Seeker, Bluebird and Stately Albion were also showing).
Touring caravans saw the new launched Swift, Eccles and Sprite models being shown for the first time in Scotland, while Bailey also launched its new Bailey Pegasus GT65 range - and another first for Scotland, the new transverse bed Bailey Unicorn Cartagena was also shown for the first time. Elddis and Coachman also had a strong presence, with Coachman being represented by the caravan dealers, Kimberley Caravans (replacing the long running dealer supplier at the Show: Crossburn Caravans).
Duncan Caravans' stand had the Bailey Pegasus GT65 for the first time in Scotland, with the transverse bed Bailey Unicorn Cartagena.
Elddis also had dealer specials on show. These included the Supreme from Campbell's (who were also showing the special Lunar Cosmos range). Swift with Bailey had stands along with Lunar, all presented by their dealers in Scotland.
Motorhome manufacturers included Burstner, Elddis, Swift and Hobby, with some displaying their new 2013 models. Some dealers brought their motorhome dealer specials, such as Tyneside Motorhomes with their Elddis Signature range. Brownhills and Campbell's are strong contenders to attract buyers from the Scottish market given their much wider choices available. E.S Hartley (from the Lake District) who were exhibiting motorhomes (and attending for their second year), reported a good overall sales success.
