Highlights from the Motorhome and Caravan Show 2017

This year's Motorhome and Caravan Show was the biggest yet with more than 101,000 people passing through the doors of the NEC from Tuesday 17th - Sunday 22nd October. The Whale stand (number 2043) was located in Hall 20 and the friendly Whale team were on hand throughout the week to help customers with any queries they had regarding their Whale products.

The main attraction on the Whale stand was the launch of the brand new Whale Easi-Slide Exterior Utilities Sockets range. The newly extended range now includes a wide selection of electrical, gas and water outlets suitable for all recreational vehicles. Find out more here.

During the show, the new sockets were spotted on a number of 2018 vehicles including the Coachman VIP caravan range, the new Swift Basecamp and a number of new Auto-Trail Motorhomes.

Our partners Propex also displayed the new Easi-Slide socket range on their stand as well as an array of Whale heating and water products.

As well as two fabulous prizes, Whale were also giving out loads of freebies including goodie bags with fluffy whales in them and lots of 'The Space Creators' balloons! Whale are known as 'The Space Creators' due their heating products being installed underneath leisure vehicles in order to maximize storage space inside for the user.

Whale not only had their own stand at the show, but they also displayed heating demos on both the Elddis and Swift stands. On the Elddis stand the Whale demo was displayed next to the new Avante range which is fitted with the Whale Expanse Water Heater and 4kW Space Heater as standard.


On the Swift stand the Whale heating demo was next to the 2018 Basecamp which has both the Whale water and space heater fitted which can be controlled with the Swift Command app.

Taking time out to visit the Live Theatre, Whale employees also managed to catch the launch of the new Bailey Unicorn range complete with the Whale water system. They also managed to hear Elddis's Grey Gappers talk about their 18 month road trip across Europe.

All in all it was a very successful show. Thank you to everyone who visited the Whale stand and entered both competitions. We look forward to seeing you all again at the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show in February 2018!
