RV Enthusiasts, First-Time Buyers Flock To Queensland Show

The organizers of Let’s Go Brisbane Caravan and Outdoor Show consider the RV show a huge success. According to a report, the four-day event held in late October saw 16,189 visitors flock to the Brisbane Showgrounds.

Caravanning Queensland also shared that about 120 people took the chance to get jabbed at the pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinic organized by Queensland Health.

This year was not only a success because of the strong sales and large crowds that we saw, but also because, for the first time ever, we were able to offer visitors the opportunity to get vaccinated against COVID-19,” Caravanning Queensland Trade CEO, Jason Plant said.

This year’s attendance exceeded 2017, 2018, and 2019 visitation, a clear indication the caravan industry continues to thrive.

The Brisbane Show attracted a number of families and prospective RV owners such as Scott Hopkins, who drove almost four hours with his family from Hervey Bay to purchase their first rig. It was a Chinese-built four-berth hybrid model from Stoney Creek.

The smile on our kids’ faces when we put the deposit down was worth a million dollars – we’ve already got plans to travel out West and to Fraser Island, but our first family holiday will be to either Rainbow Beach or Monto over Christmas,” Hopkins said.

Exhibitors such as the Burpengary-based Golf Super Centre, which provides Avan, Golf, and Knaus motorhomes, campers, and caravans, were also delighted by the large turnout.

The show also saw a number of new RV releases. The event featured an array of new models, including the Sunshine Coast-built Exceed Campers and the most up-to-date full-length collection of Vision VX hybrid caravans from Sunseeker.

The 2021 Let’s Go Brisbane Caravan & Outdoor Sale was held at the Brisbane Showgrounds on October 28-31. Exhibitors showcased the latest models of caravans, motorhomes, campervans, camper trailers, tent trailers, recreational products, and more. Tourism information and interactive seminars from industry experts were also available at the event.
