The search for the perfect motorhome continues …

Flying visit to the motorhome and caravan show 2017 at the NEC in Birmingham

We took our one year old down to the Motorhome and Caravan Show 2017 at the NEC, Birmingham last week. We were en route to Cornwall to spend some time exploring that neck of the woods. 

Our motorhome suits us fine but in 5 months we will have another addition to the family and we are on the look out for a better layout for a young family. Why are there no motorhomes with sensible low down beds? Ideally we need something with a nice comfortable seating area for us parents and a separate, low down bed or two beds for the kids. 

It’s like searching for a needle in a haystack! Clambering in and out of motorhomes 5 months pregnant is exhausting.

I did find some fun exhibitions to keep me and our daughter amused while my husband continued the search. Check out this caravan made entirely of lego! 


It has won a Guinness World Record for the largest caravan to be built with interlocking plastic bricks!


The Caravan and Camping Club stand had a great game to draw people in. This scalectric with cars towing caravans was powered by pedal power! 


So we’re still looking for the perfect motorhome layout but we had fun and it broke up the journey down to Cornwall.
