Get in, drive off, see where it takes you: The vanlife movement has really picked up speed in recent years and has long since arrived at the ABF. The "Vanlife" theme world brings the boundless feeling of freedom directly into the exhibition hall! Whether artfully converted panel vans and new van models or modules and equipment for DIY conversions - every vanlife dream comes true here. Exhibitors such as MegaMobil, Salty Blue Camper, Riegel Adventure and Vanderer will be there.
Large Variety of Brands
The ABF presents a wide range of vans and panel vans with a wide variety of equipment from well-known dealers and manufacturers. Get advice from the exhibitors, get your individual offer and find your personal dream model.
The following brands, among others, will be there: MegaMobil, Salty Blue Camper, Riegel Adventure, Vanderer, VAN-Jorn, VW and much more.
On the Vanlife stage, there will be daily lectures, talks and workshops on various vanlife topics, such as self-builds. Experts such as the bus tinkerers give tips and advice on what to consider when planning, converting or travelling.
The programme includes topics such as "The parking heater - maintenance and care", "DIY camper van - self-sufficient - suitable for families" or "How to start Vanlife - tips for starting full-time vanlife".
Visitors will also get an insight into converted vans during room tours. They can also look forward to travel reports from the Vanlife community and get inspiration for their own travel plans.
A highlight is once again the opportunity to take part in special one-hour workshops - free of charge and without advance registration. Here, beginners will receive important information and tools for self-assembly.
