RV Shows are great events to attend even if you aren’t in the market for a new RV! There’s really something for everyone and we always enjoy them. Two of our favorite shows to attend are the Florida RV Super Show in Tampa, FL in January and America’s Largest RV Show in Hershey, PA every September. Smaller shows are great too and we’ve been to several across the country. Here are some of the reasons we recommend attending a show even if you aren’t in the market for a new RV:
What better way to learn about RVing than from your fellow travelers? Choose from topics like “Basic RV Maintenance” or “RV Trip Planning” and get all your questions answered in a relaxed and unpressured environment. Many of the vendors also conduct live demonstrations so you can see products in action. And guess what? We present seminars at several shows too!
We keep this list updated, so please let us know if you’ll be attending one of the same shows as us. We’d love to meet you!
The larger shows have every kind of vendor you can imagine: RV accessories, Satellite TV experts, and numerous campgrounds. We’ve received expertise from someone on a satellite tv system we already had, purchased a new sign for our “yard”, bought a custom RV mattress (that they later delivered), and got offers for free stays at various campgrounds all at one show. The Florida RV Super Show has two buildings full of vendors with many more outdoors and most often they offer great deals! Click here to see our list of 17 essential items for every RV.
Most of the RV shows will have representatives from the various RV manufacturers right there to talk to you and answer your questions. Talking to dealers is one thing, but let’s face it, they are trying to make a sale. The factory reps can tell you what can be done (or can’t be done) at the factory level as far as options are concerned.
We were very fortunate to be able to talk to the Arctic Fox representative at the Outdoor Expo in Scottsdale, Arizona last year. We went back all three days with more questions, and each time he was very patient and helpful. On that last day, we purchased it. Learn why we choose the Arctic Fox.
