Fort Worth RV Show - 1/8/15
DW and I visited the Fort Worth RV show yesterday. First, I must say that this forum has really prepared us for our 1st RV show and I was not surprised at what we found. Some of the sales people had trouble with some questions about the TT to include the construction of the roof, R-rating of walls, floor and ceiling, and the dry weight of the trailers. Some of the trailers had debris, screws, saw dust, and other material under the seat cushions and in the cabinets. At the end of a long day, we couldn't say any of the TT really rang our bell with the exception of the Open Range TTs. However, all the Open Range TTs exceeded the towing capacity of my truck and my wallet.
(Footnote. Some of the sales people tried to convince us that our Tow Vehicle could easy handle a 10,000 lbs trailer. With the help of this forum, I already knew that we should be in the 6500 lbs range.)
Finally, we actually learned a considerable amount at this RV show using guidance and advice from this irv2 neighborhood.
And so it goes.
