Just had leaflet in post for this show. List of motorhome manufacturers attending and showing their latest models does not show Auto-Sleepers as being there. Will they be there but just not on the list or will they not be attending at all?

It is my understanding that, as a manufacturer, AS only do the NEC shows.  I see Spinney are at this show - it might be worth calling them to ask if they are taking any AS?

Thanks Peter. If I remember correctly when we went last Marquis were there showing some AS so perhaps AS leave it to dealers to do the work.

AS were on the Marquis stand at the NEC, and I have been told (by several Marquis personnel) that they are part of the AS group now.

Marquis bought Auto-sleepers in 2000.  Marquis was bought by SEA (Italian) in 2005.  In 2009 Geoff Scott and Mike Crouch bought the Auto-sleeper Group from SEA.  The group consists of AS as manufacturers and Marquis as dealers.

I know shows cost mega bucks, but since the Manchester show moved to Event City it's got very popular and I think it very short sighted to ignore it.  Swift are not idiots and must consider it a worthwhile show.
Manchester being in a central location, with free parking and other local facilities available such as the Trafford Centre will continue to grow
