The Top 6 Reasons To Attend A Camper Show

In the early part of the year camping and RV shows are the most prevalent although some popular shows take place in the fall too. But in the Midwest where I live, most camping and RV shows take place in the first few months of the year. Here's my top 11 reasons why you should go to one, or even two or three!

1)It's a way to get your mind off winter, the cold, and the snow for a short time. While you're at the show, you'll be thinking of summer, sun, green trees, and campfires; not shoveling snow or wearing 12 layers of clothing in an attempt to stay warm.

2)You get to be around really nice people. People who camp and RV are, for the most part, really friendly and outgoing. While at a show last weekend I had people joking around with me and striking up conversations about camping and the campers we were both looking at. It's a fun environment.

3)Comparison shopping. At the larger shows there are literally hundreds various campers and RV to look at. You can go inside them, look around, and talk to the dealers about each one's pros and cons.

4)Discounts and Freebies. The dealers and exhibitors at the camping and RV shows want people to do business with them during the show and make it attractive by offering special show prices on their campers and RV's; and/or giving additional items with a purchase such as free upgrades, free gas, a free grill, free camping lounge chairs, etc. Most exhibitors have some sort of giveaway. It may be a drawing for a grill, nights of camping or may be free samples of food their selling. The show itself may give away prizes. The latest camping show I was at was giving away a brand new camper to one lucky prize winner.

5)Class A Motorhomes. Whether or not you own a Class A Motorhome now, plan to own one in the future, or think you'll never be able to afford that luxury, it's worth the price of your admission ticket to tour the luxury Class A motorhomes at the shows. I toured three at the last show I was at. The nicest one had a $400,000 price tag. It was gorgeous. I overheard one woman saying the kitchen was much nicer than the one in her home. I can understand why she said that. The kitchen area in that particular Class A motor home had solid cherry cabinets, solid surface countertops, and tile flooring.

6)The Seminars. Even if you aren't a camping enthusiast you may find the seminars offered at most of the shows to be of interest to you. The seminars are usually short in length, 30 minutes or less, but are packed with interesting information. The latest one I attended talked about some of the best vacation destinations in my state, the most scenic roads to drive, the best nature areas to visit, and some of the most unique and weirdest places in the state. I've lived in the state all my life and I didn't know about several of the places I was told about. I now have some new weekend getaway and vacation destinations.

Now that I've given you my six top reasons to attend a camper or RV show, get out there, go to one, and have a great time.

Is A Pre Purchase Inspection Worth The Cost When Buying A Used Vehicle
When people are doing research on how to buy a used vehicle, they often see information encouraging them to have an independent pre-purchase inspection done of the vehicle before purchasing it, but people may wonder whether or not itís worth the money.

It is generally a good idea to have this done even if the vehicle has been certified and inspected by...

What In The World Is A Cheese Curd
Iím a Wisconsin girl so I like to think that I know cheese. It is one of the products the state is well known for and is something I grew up eating quite often, especially during the holidays. That was because we used to receive a 5-pound block of cheese every year as a Christmas present. Five pounds of cheese was a lot of cheese to eat, even for a family like ours who loved cheese but since we were usually given cheddar cheese I didnít mind. Cheddar was my favorite cheese when I was a child...

What Is A Mangosteen
A mangosteen is an edible fruit but many people have never seen or tasted a mangosteen.

The mangosteen fruit currently only grows in Southeast Asia although attempts are being made to cultivate and grow it in other tropical climates. Itís a small fruit, about the same size as a tangerine. The skin of the...

Also, donít use your finger to see how sharp the blade is. Yes, I know some of you reading this article have been guilty of this at least once and have found out that the edge of the knife was indeed very sharp because you cut yourself on it! Another...

Don t Rent A Vehicle Until Your Read This
If you are renting a car or other vehicle, the process will be the easiest and smoothest if you have a credit card to use for the transaction. Some car rental companies wonít even rent you a vehicle if you donít have a credit card for payment. If the car rental company does allow you to rent without a credit card, you may have to pay a large cash deposit to cover any potential damage to the vehicle you are renting. If you are using a travel agent and do not have a credit card, ask your agent...

17 Tips And Remedies For The Flu
