Lightbulb Tampa Show - what are you looking to buy?

I just bought my toy a month ago so I'll be looking for deals on

Seating like sofas
Surge protectors
window shades
Shore power reels
Side view cameras

What might you be looking to get?

Should I expect to save $$ over just shopping online, if so what %

You might save some money or get a bonus at the show.

Be sure to know the online prices to see if you're getting a good deal.

X2 Route 66. I have found better deals on the web for almost everything I have needed for our DP. That being said it's not a bad idea to have a Ono-on-one with the show retailers as they normally provide some very useful info and insight and also want to make a deal.

Well I guess if you have certain items with online printouts U can ask to price match at least.

Let's face every dealer pays about the same.

For me, it is finding things I did not know existed or didn't know I needed. Most of my time will be trying to find luxury RV resorts where you can have a house on the same lot as the RV. Looking for something east of the Mississippi. Nothing further south than Tennessee and South Carolina. Preferably in the mountains.
