Attending an RV show this year, will allow you to learn about the RV lifestyle in general as well as how to travel or live in one- if that is your intent! It can also just be a fun day full of resources from the industries top experts where you learn something new or something that could save you cash down the road!!!

My favorite RV show so far, is the Hershey RV Show “America’s Largest RV Show” that happens every September in Hershey, PA! I attended the event and gave seminars to fellow RV enthusiasts about the Workamping lifestyle. Not only was this the largest show I had ever attended but also the first at which I would be giving seminars. Everything turned out wonderful and the room was packed each time with groups of folks having to stand around the outer edge trying to squeeze in!

Prior to this experience I had only attend small RV shows just to get an idea of what type we wanted to buy or dreamed of buying for that matter and I don’t remember ever sitting through a seminar just for information. That was big mistake!

After attending Hershey, I was sold on the worthiness of attending RV shows regardless of if you're looking to buy or not!Click To Tweet

Planning On Buying An RV?

If you’re in the planning stages of RV life and are in the market for a new RV, RV shows can be an invaluable resource! They are a great way to view a variety of different models and floorplans from a large selection of manufacturers all in one easy location!

When you’re looking for that perfect RV, it’s always best to look at as many options as you can find. While browsing from the comfort of your couch, behind a computer screen is both easy and convenient- being submerged into one of these RV events will allow you to touch and feel the RV features and help you get a true sense of what it would be like to actually live in it!

I also find that browsing at the RV shows is less pressure than trying to go look around at a local dealer- when salesman are more aggressively trying to sell units!

RV Inspiration:

We all need a little inspiration sometimes and looking at RV models and floorplans can you help you decide if making modifications to your current RV is the best course of action! Walking through several different layouts at an RV show can help you decide if you want to change some things up in your RV, which might include new curtains and blinds, trading your dining table chairs for a booth or bench seating, new storage and organization ideas as well as bigger options like adding residential refrigerators and convection ovens.

RV Q&A:

When you have questions regarding anything RV related, a RV show is the place to be! With a tremendous variety of manufacturers, company representatives as well as fellow RVers- these RV events can help you obtain the information you need- quick, fast, and in a hurry! Make a list of the questions you need the answers to before you go and carry them with you. Find the right person or company to provide insight on the topic and get the details on what matters most to you!

Already Own An RV?

Attending an RV show can be very helpful when you are in the process of buying, but also for when you want to learn something new from a RV seminar,  and browse RV products & services from live vendors ask your questions to company representatives! Thousand of people flood the doors of the RV shows each day with the intention of attending at least one seminar, where they can visit with a lifestyle or industry expert and get information on specific topics!

RV Lifestyle Seminars:

RV seminars are a great way to grab some new information of a specific topic from industry or lifestyle experts who know their stuff! The 30-90 minute sessions are very informative and helpful to those who are just looking into topics as well as those who need more specific details. Topics will vary at each show, but for the most part you can expect a wide range including everything from Basic RV Setup Techniques, RV Maintenance & RV Inspection to RV Trip Planning, Camping Memberships. Sometimes RV seminars will also include a small upsell or promotional offer- which could help you save of a product or service you were already interested in!

RV Products & Services:

Shoppers will love the variety of RV products and services available at RV shows across the country and in Canada! New offerings as well as classics and staple items flood the RV show floors with their best deals to attract as many sales as possible! This is a great time to stock up on necessary items as well as some things you just find interesting. I’ve seen everything from flat folding wallets, camping chairs, firepits, tow hitches and even a full Camping World store!
