MORE exhibitors, more variety and more entertainment are the headline attractions for the fourth annual Border Caravan and Camping Expo at Wodonga.
The official industry show, staged by the Caravan Industry Association of Victoria (CIA Vic), will have all the latest products and services at Wodonga Racecourse from August 15-17.
There will be more than 200 caravans, motorhomes, camper trailers, campervans, pop-tops, tent trailers, fifth-wheelers and slide-ons for every purse and purpose.
Also on show will be a huge range of parts and accessories, tents, annexes, destinations, towing equipment, telecommunications, alternative power and off-road equipment.
CIA Vic Chief Executive Officer Robert Lucas said the display space had been expanded into the exhibition shed to keep up with demand.
"This show just keeps getting bigger and better and it's an absolute winner as a top value day out for the whole family," he said.
"In addition to free parking, food vendors and our popular kids' playground, this year we also have free showbags, featuring the new Caravanning Explorers' Club characters.
"A special attraction this year is the charity raffle to win a 23 foot family caravan worth more than $78,000. The caravan industry is working with Kids Under Cover to help prevent youth homelessness. Tickets are just $3.
"As is our annual tradition, we will also be donating $5,000 to a local charity."
Gates are open at the Border Caravan and Camping Expo from 9.30am to 5pm on Friday and Saturday and 9.30 am to 4pm on Sunday.
