Tallebudgera Creek - Day 8

Day 28 - Friday 25 July 2014

Another beautiful day on the Gold Coast - mainly sunny and 24 degrees.

Today was day one of the Gold Coast Caravan and Camping Expo held at the Gold Coast Turf Club at Bundall. Being Friday we thought that today might be less crowded than Saturday or Sunday. Not sure that it would make much difference as the place was packed. The Expo was laid out in the car parks, while the car-parking was mainly around the race track. There were a large number of caravans being exhibited, a handful of 5th wheelers and various motorhomes of all sizes.

The first exhibitor inside the main area was Australia Wide Annexes - we have been thinking of buying an annexe and had been looking at a Fiamma Privacy Room specially made for out Fiamma awning. However we have also been looking at other awnings around the caravan park, and yesterday we were spectators for the installation of an Australia Wide Annexe on a nearby caravan. We were impressed and checked out the awning on display at the Expo and booked Colin to come to the caravan park on Monday to do a measure and quote. They have told us that it would take about 2 weeks to make the annexe. That time frame would fit in with our plans as we leave here on Wednesday for 2 weeks on the Sunshine Coast, before returning to Southport on the Gold Coast for another 2 weeks.

The caravans on display included a great number of new vans that that we have never heard of before nor ever seen on our travels. In general caravans seem to be getting larger and larger - and as Di pointed out they all have very nice bathrooms. Avida (formerly known as Winnebago) had a display of motorhomes plus several of their new range of caravans. There were several Sapphires on display, and we checked out a few of them as Di has not yet seen your caravan Chappy - she liked the bathroom!
