I'd love to come for the experience

First year owing a Transit and never attended a Show weather it be Transit Forums or a Ford show.

Just can't make my mind up weather my MK5 van could do the distance or I could stand the noise, I'm sure it would just need to fix it's teething troubles like sticking brakes :roll:

Dont fancy being on the road, Radio comes on (The M1 or whatever road is closed southbound due to a van fire :lol: :cry:

I'm told it's a big event if I'm correct?

Hi all,

Getting booked for the weekend, looking forward to it, as i missed the project weekend.

I've a question though, I'm coming with my 4 young kids.. only me as an adult the tent needs 2 people to put it up with a fight, 3 with ease., It's an oldish steel frame type family tent.

D'ya think i'll be able to get a bit of help early Fri afternoon to set it up at all?? (please please please) takes me about 15 mins to get all the poles in-place, that bit I can do on own, but I'd need a hand for 10 mins or so to haul the frame up.

Thanks, andy

couple of questions (no doubt asked before)

1 do you have to book in advance for camping or just turn up and pay

2 what day is the actual show on or is it all the days

Just tried booking in today for Saturday night and I was told that can not be done and that I have to book in for 2 nights????

Can anyone else tell me if they have had the same problem.

Thank you
