VDL: motor-homes, caravans, mobile homes, van... a fair held at Parc des expositions in Le Bourget.
The success of this fair is undeniable and has become a most awaited rendezvous by lovers of recreational vehicles: caravans, campers, mobile homes… all meet up in le Bourget exhibition center, an exhibition where you will discover the latest in the world of caravanning and perhaps revisit the classics and enjoy getting the latest “up to date” news in the sector.
Come and admire more than seventy French brand names and foreign brands too : eight hundred models of camping-cars, two hundred models of caravans, not forgetting mobile homes. There are three distinct areas: the exhibition pole (over five halls), the sales pole on second-hand camping-cars between buyers and sellers and the space dedicated to parking for camping-car visitors during the VDL France fair.
Once again, the exhibition center offers a “rental package” for ninety-nine euros, (numbers limited) which allows you to try a camping car for three days. It is of course understood that this kind of purchase cannot be done on a whim.
At the exhibition you can also find insurers, credit companies, sellers of more or less indispensable accessories … Do not hesitate to visit the fair, you will certainly come back the following year to purchase new or second hand.
