California RV show in Pomona

Did anyone go to the RV show in Pomona? I went today hoping that the vendor tent would have many vendors and that I would be able to see some of the latest and greatest RV parts and accessories. Boy was I disappointed. I could have my back checked, I could buy Cutco knives, I could buy face and hand cream but what I didn't see much of was RV stuff. I looked at a lot of RV's but IMHO I like my 05 Panther better than all of them. Oh well, maybe next year...

don't forget about the discount cards they were handing out for SEARS!! What a joke the vendor tent was, huge disappointment!!

Where was all the RV stuff?

I agree, maybe next year.

My exact thoughts...it looked like the RV tent in Quartzite only smaller.

I was impressed though with the number and variety of RV's on display.

The Big Tent in Q-Site has been getting more like that in the past several years. About 80% of the entire tent is non RV related stuff. But, we'll go again in January.

That was my first RV show. I am in the market to purchase soon maybe when I find the one (not in a rush). Is that normal for a RV show?//

The vendor tent and the seminars were lacking but the number and variety of RV's were not to be missed. We went last Saturday and did walk thru the vendor tent but not much there. We had a mission when we went and that was to look at as many DP's as possible in the size(s) we want. For Thom and I it was worth the price of parking and the buy one get one in free tickets we had.

The small number of vendors we were interested in were Blue Ox (Thom had some questions for them), Cutco (I have some and need some sharpened), other than that we got some info for some other stuff.

Throughout the years this show has been getting smaller and smaller. The tent was a total waste. The only improvement to the fair was the well designed entrance with its cutesy campsites. Of course the whole idea of the show is to see the many new RVs on the market. Since consolidation in the industry has greatly reduced the number of manufacturers it is really not the shows fault that there are fewer displays. Noticeably absent were the specialty custom RVs of the past. What was lacking in items was made up for by the abundance of salespeople, many from across the United States. Every year we say it will be our last time at the show, yet every year we keep going back. It's nice to see some of the new ideas, and to realize that what we have fits our needs just fine...for now.
Happy Trails.

If your really want to see the new after market items in the Big Tent, consider attending the FMCA Rallies. Indio is coming up in January, you can get a day pass.

I will try and go to the FMCA show. I agree that there were many rv's to look at and if I had been in the market for a new one then my thoughts would be different. I feel sorry for the people that now have to take all of those back to the stores in LA traffic........
