The April Show is an event held by Surf Bay Leisure between the 10th and 12th of April. This event is the Caravan and Lodge Show, we host this event to allow people that are due an upgrade or wish to make their first purchase have a look around and ask questions in a stress-free environment.

Individuals are given the opportunity to not only look and ask about caravans but also speak to park owners. This allows buyers to make an informed choice around the lifestyle they will lead for the next 10 -15 years. 


Wednesday was horribly affected by the weather with strong winds and heavy rain leading to a much slower day. Some people did still filter through though and many pasties were consumed with some people sticking their heads in some of the caravans. Reps from Atlas, ABI and Swift were also here helping people understand their product. The other major highlight of the day was the Camper Coffee van that was stationed outside. This was main reason people headed into the wind for a delicious cup of complimentary coffee. 


Thursday the weather had eased off slightly leading to more footfall throughout the day, well it was either the nicer weather or the fact that Jonesy’s had provided a hog roast that was also complimentary to the guests. The standout Caravans for Thursday were the Swift Toronto Lodge, ABI Hamilton, Swift Bordeaux, and the ABI Ambleside. The ABI and Swift reps also came back for Thursday to help meet and greet potential customers and offer tours of the statics they represented.


Friday the sun had finally awoken from its slumber and the wind had all gone, the temperature was a solid 16 degrees, and we had our busiest day of the week. People came in to view caravans, try the delicious free coffee and the lovely pulled pork sandwiches. Again, like Thursday the standout statics were the Swift Toronto Lodge, ABI Hamilton, Swift Bordeaux, and ABI Ambleside. These statics are all very solid options and offer similar style and flexibility but at different price points.

Friday also saw some private land people down to look at the second-hand yard and the star of the second hands was the pathfinder custom.
