It’s a little under two months to go until the 2019 Motorhome & Caravan Show opens its doors, so we thought we’d take a look at some of the most anticipated new vehicles which can be seen at the show, along with some other highlights!
Motorhome and Caravan Show comes to Birmingham's NEC this October
Rolling Homes – Special Edition 4x4 Off-road Camper Stand 12.82
More and more people are choosing the Volkswagen Transporter as the base vehicle for their campervan conversion, and Rolling Homesare no exception. They have been in the van conversion industry for ten years and to celebrate they’ve created a special edition4x4 off-road camper. This is no show pony; it’s a genuine cross-country vehicle, based on a short wheelbase T6 PS 4 Motion. Rolling Homes have raised the van by adding a full off-road suspension kit giving them an additional 100mm ground clearance. A diff lock, underbody protection and BF Goodrich All-Terrain tyres further enhance this vehicle’s outdoor credentials.
If that isn’t enough, Laser lights complete the rugged look and light up the road ahead, and a pair of carbon fibre race seats from Cobra should hold you snugly in place, wherever you venture. As you would expect, the van features the usual internal fixtures and fittings including a fully crash rated sliding bed/seat system. From a practical perspective, the rugged rubberised floor and sides make this the ideal vehicle for the more outdoorsy, adventurous camper.

RP Motorhomes – BeauER 3X Stand 12.94
Smaller caravans are ever more popular, but what do you do if you still crave extra space? The BeauEr 3X could be the answer. The 3X is like something from George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces; three identical sections slotting seamlessly together make up the body of the vehicle, with electric actuators easily transforming this diminutive caravan from 4m2 to an impressive 12m2. Once expanded fittings and furniture fold out in under 30 seconds, eat your heart out George!
Bailey - Discovery Stand 12.95
Continuing the small van theme, the Bailey Discovery range has been designed to be pulled by smaller tow cars and is light enough to be towed by younger drivers, even with licensing restrictions. The range consists of three vans along with exclusive PRIMA accessories; the highlight of these is the unique L-shaped air awning which wraps around the curved caravan body and includes a two-person sleeping compartment.
Morelo - Home Stand 9.50
New to the UK market and at the opposite end of the scale is the Morelo Home, with luxury styling, these vehicles really are a home away from home. With a starting price of 151€, this is the cheapest vehicle in the Morelo range and is based on the Iveco Daily 50. Optional extras include a fully automatic satellite TV system with 2x 24” flat-screen TVs, a Nespresso coffee machine and even a fixed tank toilet with a ceramic bowl, a snip at 3000€.
