From October 4 to 8, Utrecht will be the epicenter of camping enthusiasts and outdoor adventurers, when the Kampeer & Caravan Jaarbeurs (KCJ) opens its doors. It promises to be more than just an exhibition of shiny caravans and campers because it will be a true experience for anyone who has lost their heart to the outdoors.

Visitors have the opportunity to take a test drive, so that they can experience for themselves what it is like to travel in a caravan.
