Have your say

THE six-day 2019 Victorian Caravan, Camping and Touring Supershow attracted over 49,000 visitors, its organisers have revealed.

Caravan Industry Victoria chief executive Rob Lucas said the event featured world firsts, with the 250 exhibitors showcasing more new products than ever before.

"We had good weather throughout the show which assisted with everyone's overall enjoyment," he added.

Attractions included the highly successful new AL-KO Innovation Hub which presented not one but two world firsts, being the OzXcorp Smart Caravan and the OzXcorp Gasless Recreation Platform and Centralised Energy Management System.

In addition there were 10 other new products for the caravan industry.

Visitors were able to take part in interactive towing and weight demonstrations on the new 'camp ground' which were extremely well received with high numbers attending each one.

"Many took the opportunity to talk one-on-one with our industry experts who were onsite for the whole event," Mr Lucas said.

Families were entertained with presentations on travelling with pets from Dr Katrina Warren and Lara Shannon's 'Pooches at Play'.

Visitors were said to have been "thoroughly impressed" with the skills demonstrated by the WonderDogs, which included one of the dogs packing its own travel case.

As the sun set on Friday and Saturday night the event came alive with local street performers, a caricature artist capturing people's personalities in "a big way" on paper as an event memento.

Visitors buying a new recreational vehicle received a boarding pass for a chance to win a Birdsville Big Red Bash experience worth over $5500.

"In acknowledgement of our 65th anniversary, we showcased some special footage at our official opening, aptly named Capturing Our Journey, which was engaging and provided a first-hand view of the journey from our pioneers and current leaders," Mr Lucas said.

"With the introduction of named thoroughfares based on Australian roads, new precincts, more directional signage and other new initiatives the event was easier for patrons to navigate, more engaging and provided a more memorable experience for those who attended."
