I recommend the motorhome show to everyone. In one place you have the opportunity to see, try and compare all the brands available in Europe. In addition to motorhomes, there are also manufacturers of accessories such as awnings, satellites or even manufacturers of equipment for campsites and motorhome parkings.
How to save money at a motorhome show
Each brand has special promotions at the show when ordering a new model. If you want to save some money and you know what you want, go and buy a motorhome at the show.

The biggest motorhome shows in Europe
Europe’s biggest motorhome show is in Düsseldorf, lasting about one week. The show is usually held in the last week of August. All brands available in Europe take part. In addition to the big brands, smaller, lesser-known and less widespread brands can also be seen in Düsseldorf.
There is a similar exhibition in Parma, which takes place a week after Düsseldorf. Most of the motorhomes move from Düsseldorf to Parma. However, there are not many small German brands at this exhibition.
Apart from the big shows, there are lots of small local ones during the year, but where it is not possible to see so many models or manufacturers. So if you want to have a really good overview, I would definitely go to Düsseldorf or Parma at least once.
How about parking the motorhome during the show
The car park in front of the exhibition centre usually turns into a huge motorhome parking for the duration of the show. It is possible to fill and drain water and toilets there. It is common for motorhomers to sleep in the car park in front of the showground for a couple of days while they see all the motorhomes.
If you have already chosen the length and number of pitches, the chances are pretty good that you won’t be able to see all the filtered motorhomes at the show in one day.
It is not even possible to see all the motorhomes at the show in one week of the show.
