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:
We love learning from other RVers at the varied seminars. 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.
RV accessories, Satellite TV experts, and numerous campgrounds. At the last show, we got expertise from someone on a satellite tv system we already had, we got a new sign for our “yard”, and got offers for free stays at various campgrounds. Listen to our podcast about the vendors at the Fall RV Show in Tampa.
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.
