Southern Motorhome Centre is hosting a WildAx Weekend on April 13-14, where it will highlight the latest products from independent specialist UK van converter, WildAx.

The event will also be an opportunity to meet the man behind WildAx motorhomes, Duncan Wildman. On display will be a line-up of new and used WildAx models based on Citroen's Relay and Renault's Master, plus the all-new Ford Transit-based four-berth Triton and an official debut Mercedes Sprinter-based Elara.

The Weekend will also see special offers on selected pre-owned stock from a wide range of manufacturers. Plus, there will be all-day refreshments and a barbecue.

Southern Motorhomes' Owner Mike Graves says: "It's an absolute pleasure for us to have Duncan Wildman with us for our WildAx Weekend. It's great that owners - both current and prospective - can meet Duncan in person and find out more from the man himself about what makes WildAx conversions unique."

He adds: "Events like this are also ideal for anyone contemplating owning a motorhome for the first time. Come along and see the vehicles, chat to our experienced team and even meet some of our customers. We promise "no pressure - just nice tea, hot sausages and sound advice".

The WildAx Weekend takes place on April 13 and 14 at Southern Motorhomes' new premises in Bracknell, Berkshire. Entrance is free to all-comers.

Southern Motorhome Centre is based at Brickfields Industrial Estate, Bracknell, Berkshire RG12 1NA. Our website is

The all American touring icon has been available for purchase from main dealers in the UK for just over a year or so now. Since Airstream's launch in the UK I have not seen a huge amount on the highways of caravan parks across the UK.
