The caravan community you may be missing out on0
The caravanning community is huge and for the majority largely friendly, as many people are aware, but just in case you are not here is an idea of the sense of companionship you may be missing out on…
There are a lot of caravan clubs, some are free forums to join and discuss your latest holiday or next planned trip, and even get advice from a knowledgeable source. But some require a fee to be a part of, usually these kinds of club members can enjoy extra perks and events. However memberships aren’t always needed to become a part of this community atmosphere.
Usually for a small entry fee clubs or associations team together to run events that are open to the public. At these kinds of shows you will be able to look at and even buy products ranging from motor-homes to tent accessories as multiple suppliers attend and set up stalls or booths. You will also be able to mingle with other campers and caravan enthusiasts while enjoying the shows entertainment, which usually features things such as celebrity speakers, live theatre and music performances, competitions and bingo. As well as all this, shows will quite often have a showcase of the upcoming motor-homes and trailer tents to be released the following year, as a kind of exclusive preview for attendees. The occasional show will also feature bus trips, free entry for children and cooking demos, it simply depends which one you choose to attend.
However, members of payed clubs are sometimes invited to attend closed, member only events. These events are usually quite similar to open public shows but much smaller and based more around the community atmosphere and bringing old friends together to enjoy a weekend of camping. Such as the National Feast of Lanterns, which is a closed event run yearly in the countryside, where attendees decorate their choice of accommodation in bright lights and hold competitions. The event does offer a trading area, live music and entertainment for children, but the sole focus of the event is to celebrate community and the outdoors.
Whether you choose to be a club member or attend these events as part of the general public, you will be openly accepted and greeted into a welcoming, vocal community. The only question is, are you willing to become a part of it?
