Manchester Caravan Show

Visited the Manchester show yesterday and really enjoyed it,but a bit of heating in the venue wouldn't have gone amiss it has to be said.

Not really much,if anything,new on the Orion front.

There was a 400/2 and a 430/4 present and they seemed to be stimulating a lot of interest.

Unfortunately they seemed to display what  sadly seems to be coming Baileys trademark and that is poor finishing in some places.

The plastic "coving" that runs the width of the van on the ceiling in front of the washroom on the 430/4 was coming adrift and there were gaps between the van sides and the cupboards near the entrance door.

On the same van there were gaps in the shower sealant and some screw covers missing,also in the shower.

Not good enough,especially on a show van.

The show was opened by Marina Sirtis ( no me neither ) who had appeared in Star Trek and lived in a caravan whilst on set,and that was it.

If you read about her on the web she has never been in a caravan apart from that.

They had an Orion dressed up to resemble the Enterprise though :-
