Check Weight attended (as a exhibitor) for the first time the 2020 Newcastle Caravan Camping Lifestyle Expo.
It was truly great to see so many people who are genuinely interested in knowing and understanding what their caravans weigh, and are doing something to ensure they are compliant with the laws.
We spoke to hundreds of people who wanted to know more about their weights and how they could get the caravan weighed in Newcastle and surrounds.
This year’s Expo numbers were down due to the forecast bad weather – 20-40 mls of rain was being forecast – with 3331 people attending on the Friday – amidst fine weather, wind and rain!
The numbers may have been down – but the quality of people was high – with really tough genuine campers only out and about!
Saturday morning saw better weather – and 7024 people went through the gates – with numbers dropping after 2pm when the weather again turned.
Jeff was stoked to be asked to do a live interview from the EXPO with 2HD Newcastle breakfast presenters Richard and Kim – about Caravan Weights and Check Weight – mobile caravan weighing.
Sunday – well Sunday – It rained all Saturday night and the grounds were saturated and organisers made the good call to cancel the day – to save the grounds –and for the safety of exhibitors and visitors. Although disappointing – I believe that this was the right call – and all credit to those making a gutsy decision early on Sunday morning.
