We had lots of fun at the Great Land Rover Show at Stoneleigh. Once again it was a fabulous feeling being back out meeting lovely people. It is also a joy showing off our expedition camping gear.
Being in a chilly November, it was nice to do an indoor show. This meant that we avoided any rain and wind when setting up. We set up the day before, giving us plenty of time to make sure we had the best look. It was exciting to see the hall being transformed and all the glorious iconic Land Rovers coming in. Other exhibitors were super friendly; happy to show off their trucks and give us some encouraging feedback as this was our first time there. After a fun team meal outing at a local restaurant, we headed home for a good night’s sleep.
We displayed our popular Land Rover Defenders and our new Land Rover Discovery along with our amazing hardcore offroad expedition caravan. Our vehicles had our popular roof tents and awnings, giving potential buyers the opportunity to see how they fit and how easy they are to set up.
People at the show were so chatty and friendly. Some came to say hello as we had met before, others to say they have our gear and how happy they are with it. Some are just amazed at the potential there is for camping and how much they can put on their vehicle.
Another highlight must be meeting the dogs and Jasper stole our hearts this time!
An indoor event had a brilliant atmosphere. We were super busy and at the end of the day we were tired but very happy.
That’s it for this year but we’re back in the office right now we are planning next year. 2023 maybe challenging with the rising cost of living but we will continue to work hard for our customers. Look out for us and we promise some fun times!
