Getting there is only half the fun

Offering a twice daily service from Hamilton City to the show at Mystery Creek, show visitors will be able to take advantage of a glorious trip down the Waikato River on the Waikato River Explorer and arrive at the show in style - relaxed and ready to go. Departures will take place from Hamilton Gardens Jetty at 8.30am & 10.00am and return from Mystery Creek at 3.00pm & 4.30pm daily, across the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the show.

But getting there is only half the fun. There will be wealth of exciting other new options on offer as well, adding to the shows traditional crowd pleasers, and further cementing its reputation as the biggest and best show of its kind in the country.

They include the all-new Resene Caravan Do-Up Challenge where entrants will compete to "refresh and beautify" their caravan over a three day competition. Competitors will have to work as a team, within a budget and will be judged on their design and workmanship. And just to keep them on their toes, a few extra challenges will be thrown in along the way. Show visitors will also be treated to a must see display of classic caravans ranging across the decades of the 50's and 60's, which for some are sure to bring back memories of those wonderful childhood holidays.

There will also be a number of demonstrations across the weekend, including The Leisure Line & Southern Star electronic stability control demo, highlighting the advantages of having Electronic Stability Control fitted to your caravan, as well as celebrity chef Chelsea Winter, who will be cooking up dishes designed specifically for the chef on the road.

Or why not stay on site and enjoy the flavour and atmosphere of the whole show weekend. For the first time the onsite TOP 10 Rally will be free of charge with plenty of room to park up for the duration of the show. There'll be a 'Daily Dairy' to purchase all the staple items needed for a weekend away without having to leave the venue, along with some fantastic evening entertainment options including a ticketed BBQ and Jazz night on Friday, as well as a Dine and Dance function on Saturday evening.

Event Organiser , Michele Connell says "We're excited at the move to Mystery Creek, which will give show visitors the opportunity to experience a full weekend of activity showcasing the latest and greatest, as well as the classics of the industry. There will also be plenty of chances to win some great prizes including the ultimate Top 10 North Island Adventure gate prize, a 14 day adventure around the North Island in a Kea motorhome, including entry to ten of the best North Island attractions. We've also introduced our new Quick Fire Raffle where every hour our nominated charity, Lions International Clubs, will be outside an exhibitors site selling tickets, and spinning the winning wheel where one lucky person will win the prize supplied by the exhibitor for that hour. All proceeds from the quick fire raffle will be donated to the Lions Cancer Lodge. "

The North Island Camper Care NZ Motorhome & Caravan Show will be held at Mystery Creek, Hamilton from Friday the 28th of February to Sunday the 2nd of March 2014.
