By Garth Morrison Editor

GoSee found a run of new, interesting, innovative exhibits at the Camper Care NZ Motorhome & Caravan Show at Hamiltons' Claudelands from March 3 to 6.The signs of a healthy industry shone through the heavy rain showers.

It is great when people have a go and the result is sweet- like the ultimate camper trailer. The Work Play 350 (3.5m) camper trailer is a particular example. GoSee did not have to be told that the beautifully finished lifestyle rig is the work of people who have a great deal of experience in building boats in fibreglass.

Along with Rv's of all breeds GoSee has a lot of experience using boats built to last in that medium and as the saying goes - it takes one to know one.

One look at the strength, moulding style and finish was all it took.Better still the the Work Play 350 camper trailer is a Hamilton New Zealand product.
