We will be bringing our Vango galli also.
Probably sleep in the van if I can get the sleeping right, if not then in the awning.
Quiet camping as I think it will be too big for the stand.

Tent. It's sat in it's bag on the floor in the lounge right in front of me now. It's better be good - spent far too much for what will likely be only 2 nights camping this year now.

For those who are saying the tent might be too big for the stand... the plot we have this year appears to be bigger than last year, and we have 10 less vehicles on the stand, so we should be OK.

Our four plots are split by a fire lane, 2 one side (where the cars will all be on display through the day) and tents/awnings/caravans will be on the other side.

Feel free to make use of the quiet camping area as the plots can be quite noisy into the early hours, but we will tone things down around 11pm/midnight for those who want to stay up and keep partying.

That said, @Pippa and I are sleeping in the van, so it's easy for us.

Those with an awning will be expected to have the Elgrand on the show stand during the day, and drive back to the awning ready for sleeping.

We want to avoid the show stand looking like a camp site like it did last year.

The missus and I found the van to be very "spacious" with the middle seats removed.... I'll say no more. :p

I'm actually in two minds to just sleep in the van am not bring the awning πŸ™ˆ its only us two haha x
It’s so much better sleeping in the van. One less thing to worry about, and the last time we slept in the van, we didn’t use an air bed and was the best sleep I had :joy:
