Quartzsite RV Show

Can anyone that has attended this show tell me if it is worth the drive? Looking to get a great deal on and new Fver and don't want to make the drive if it may not be the best place to purchase.

Thank you

Is it worth the drive? From where?

We spend a few days in Q every winter, I personally would never a buy a RV there. I know that I will be flamed for that comment, but it is my opinion. To much sales pressure.

To look at many different manufacturers and inspect many models OK, "IF" you can get away from a salesman!

I would much rather deal with a local dealer where I live.

While I would not buy an RV there, it is a wonderful gathering place to meet new and old friends. The Big Tent is a must see.

Not sure others say they would not buy at that show. Personally I'd buy at where I get the best deal. However do not automatically assume that a show will give you a better price than a dealer not at the show.
We bought our first coach at a show and felt we got a really good deal. When we went to by the second coach we went to a big show expecting another good deal. Not so much, a Florida dealer not at the show gave us a much better deal.
Shows are a great place to compare brands and models and sometimes get good deals but not always.

We went a few years ago, after selling our 5er, and looked at some motorhomes. First off, there is only one dealership that is allowed to sell on the show grounds. It seriously looked as though folks had gathered their belongings and walked out of the coaches, right where they were parked. Nobody had done a thing to them at all. We walked out and stopped looking after the 3rd one. Now, these were obviously used, not new. We did go look at a few other dealers in town, and didn't see any real deals, or anything "on sale". I was a RV technician for a good while, and have a real good idea what normal use looks like, and what the value is. I looked at other places to find our present RV.

We bought our latest motorhome from a dealer at Quartsite, did not get a 'good' deal but got a 'great' motorhome in excellent condition and got a 'fair' deal. There is a lot of options to look at there.

I would first decide on floor plan along with what year, make and model you want. Then it is just using the laptop PC to find the best price be it new, used, from a dealer or private party.
