The fair in Dusseldorf, Germany, is the largest caravanning event in the world every year. Caravan Salon 2014 will run from August 30 to September 7.

If you would like to see almost everything that is happening in the caravanning industry in one place and time, you should not be missing from Dusseldorf. Any event in the world related to camping tourism, it is difficult to compete with the German exhibition.

1,900 vehicles

The numbers speak for themselves. In Dusseldorf, visitors will be able to visit 190,000 square meters of exhibition space - both indoors and outdoors. This year, in addition to the nine halls available previously, two new halls will be open, so there will be even more to visit. The arrival at the Caravan Salon has been announced by 580 exhibitors who intend to show the public about 1,900 vehicles!

Vehicles in all categories will be represented. Of course, there will be caravans, family campers, as well as the most luxurious ones with a sauna, swimming pool and garage .

This year, new base vehicles will attract particular attention - incl. New Fiat Ducato and Iveco Daily , about which we have already written. They are more technically advanced, more economical and more ecological than their predecessors.

Motorhome manufacturers will try to do wonders to make the best use of the space they offer. That is why we can expect many ingenious solutions in interior design. Another important trend is reducing the weight of recreational vehicles . Currently, larger and larger motorhomes are being sold, which, however, still fit in the range of vehicles with a permissible total weight of up to 3.5 tons.

To win

Fair visitors will be able to take part in several competitions. In the largest of them, you will be able to win the DubBox trailer , which looks like a trimmed Volkswagen "cucumber". Handles, bumpers, safari windows - everything is old-fashioned here. The winner of the prize will also receive a free interior design in the package.

In another competition, you will be able to win a holiday at a 5-star campground . To get such a chance, it is enough to show good senses. For example, in the taste test, you will have to blindfold your eyes to recognize individual dishes, and in the smell test, show a good nose.

Movies and canoes

As usual, the organizers have planned a lot of accompanying events. "Dream Tours" promises to be interesting - a daily screening of films documenting motorhome trips, incl. along American highways and along the silk road. Australia, New Zealand, Iceland, the Faroe Islands and the vast expanses of Indochina will be there to see you.

In addition, vintage cars will be shown, it will also be possible to test e-bikes and electric scooters . Probably some campers will also be available for testing.

The largest of the attractions not directly related to caravanning will be the canoe track available on the fairgrounds for all comers, regardless of their level of advancement. In addition, there are plenty of attractions for children - incl. climbing walls for the older ones, and bouncy castles or face painting for the younger ones.


A regular ticket costs 14 euros . Pupils and students will pay 10 euros, and children from 6 to 12 years old - 6 euros. Interestingly, tickets purchased online are valid for two days, while those purchased at the ticket offices - 1 day.

Attention! Having purchased a ticket in advance, you can travel and return to the fair free of charge by VRR DB train (second class).

In addition, tickets for the Caravan Salon allow free admission to the TourNatur fair, dedicated to hiking , which will take place from 5 to 7 September.
