Re: CamperJam of Busfest

I suspect if you enjoy Busfest you would enjoy Camper Jam and staying for weekend at either is diff from a day visit experience ...Camper Jam has more intimacy especially in eves, as has a central area with all stuff around - Busfest is much more spread out but has a bigger VW and parts trade area a...
