Best RV Shows for Class A

My wife & I are looking at Class A DP motorhomes for full time living. We want to go to an RV show with the largest selection of Newmar, Tiffin, Entegra, American Coach and comparable quality manufacturer floor plans to try and find the right unit for our desires. We are willing to fly just about anywhere. I can find a calendar of RV shows, but don't know how to determine how big of a selection of floor plans will be represented at the show. I know the Hershey PA show is the largest, but is there a comparable show in size of Class A DP's that we can attend in the next 4 months or so? I've found a calendar of upcoming RV shows, but have no clue which are the large ones. Thanks

The best is the Tampa Super Show:

Plan at least 2-3 days there.

Hershey PA. RV super show in September is excellent as well as
the Tampa, FL. show in January. I believe those are the two largest ones.

Tampa is definitely the place to go. Been to Hershey, Tampa is much better for class A's. Every brand will be well represented!

We have been to Tampa for the last 4 years and it is definitely the show to go to see everything.

If you want to see where the rest of the shows are - I keep it on the travel map we publish for 40+ footers out on MHRig | Helping Big Rig Full-Timers find all the cool stuff to do across America

In the next 4 months, Tampa is the place to go. We decided to start looking for a replacement for our CC 2 years ago, so we flew out to Tampa from California so we could compare all the brands in one place. Everything we wanted to see was there. I can't compare Hershey or any other show to Tampa, but it was well worth the trip for us.
Pomona, which is going on now is a fairly good sized show if your out west.

Tampa has Newell, Prevost, and all the other high end coaches. Newell's are built in Florida so maybe you should plan on visiting the factory as well.

Newell is built in Miami but it's Miami, OK, not Florida. 1400 miles away.
