Default Re: Bus Types 2017

We went - was seriously worried as we were driving around Manchester on Friday afternoon in appalling conditions. Rain was really hammering it down. Got there though and was dry! Camping good - LOADS of room to spread out vs shows like Dubs Int Dales where zero s are given and they tried to just cram as many people in as possible leading to what I thought was an unsafe camping area.

Toilets and general cleanliness was superb. Best I've seen. People constantly wandering around picking up litter and emptying bins and the toilets were immaculate every time I went.

The show itself - decent number of stalls I thought but the same criticism of most shows, a lot of them are a bit car boot-esque just selling tat. Would be nice to see more VW specific ones. There was a 200+ stall auto jumble advertised. I saw maybe 4 stalls selling used parts. Also the food range was pretty rubbish and bloody expensive.

But.... overall I thought it was a good show and I'd go again. The standard of the vans, especially the air cooled stuff I thought was very high. Could easily be made a bit bigger and as a result, more interesting which would appeal.

Just a shame the weather was frigging cold!
