The motorhome show is the best way to see and especially to feel all the motorhomes. If you’re buying a camper van, it’s a good idea to check out the bed length or shower size. motorhome dealers don’t usually stock all models, so you won’t really know about your options. You certainly won’t see a fraction of the motorhomes at a smaller show like the one in Brno that you would see at a big show somewhere abroad.
So the best thing to do is to go to one of the big shows and see everything you might be interested in live. We’ve been going to motorhome shows since 2014 when we first went to see the motorhomes available. We also went to the show in 2015 and then bought our first Knaus motorhome after the show.
Where do we go to the motorhome show?
As we prefer to go on holiday to Italy rather than Germany, for us the choice of motorhome show location is quite clear. Every year, around mid-September, there is a huge motorhome fair in Parma. Last year it was a bit smaller though, as many exhibitors or brands didn’t come to the show for corona reasons. Even so, there were 3 full pavilions of vendors and brands, so we had our fun taken care of.
What does it look like at a motorhome show?
At the show you can see all the big brands of motorhomes, trailers, vans as well as motorhome and camping accessories.
Aside from the fact that there is an exhibition in Parma they have some pretty good ham, cheese and wine. So if you go to the show with someone who isn’t interested in those motorhomes 7 days a week, they can easily stay in the gastro section of the fairgrounds for days on end.
The whole parking lot in front of the exhibition turns into one big “camping site”, where visitors’ motorhomes are parked for the whole week as well. So if you come in your own or rented motorhome, you also have a service point for filling and draining water and toilets, food, wine or beer stalls.
