We went Sunday, quite busy. Lots of vehicles for sale, a good selection of accessory vendors. Speaking to several of the sellers they said the weather had put off a lot of the day visitors and it was very quiet on the Saturday. From what I could see of the camping areas it looked full.
There was more to look at than the Lincoln show.

Other forums are reporting fewer traders as seems to be the case at all shows, probably due to high pitch prices that make it uneconomical for traders to come away from their normal premises, pay staff and travel costs.

We just went for the day on Friday as we often do- we live within 40 minutes.
We were quite disappointed as there seemed to be very few vans under 5.9 metres. Nothing interesting or unusual other than a Wildax Pulsar but all the lockers were so high I couldn't reach them!
We ended up buying a reduced ( slightly bent) ladder thingy for home and a metre of red reflective tape - no use in mind yet!

Much the same as usual, very cold especially on the Saturday 

it seems the venue catering arrangements have changed which meant no real ale in the main entertainment areas

a lot of people unhappy including me.


I also thought a few regular traders were missing 


Prices for all refreshments seemed to be increasing and the entertainment certainly not as good for the last few shows 


I’m going to the Shepton Mallet Show later this year so I’ll post a update after the event
