Can you tell me which rv show is the better one to visit.

I am planning on coming over from UK to attend one of the shows to check out the rv's that are available. I know I have missed this years one in Tampa, but if that is the better one with the most units available, then I am happy to wait another frustrating year before checking them out.

Here in the UK we are very restricted on what units we can view as there are so few outlets and although I have seen pictures and brochures of units, its not the same as actually being inside one. So we would dearly love to come over on a specific visit to view them at the largest and best show.

Cheers all and safe travels
Icey

Icey,

You can not go wrong with the Tampa RV Supershow. I have attended it a few times and it is truly impressive. The variety is impressive, you will have a great chance of comparing lots of rigs. The hard part will be narrowing down to "the one".

There are other large shows during the winter months in more northern lattitudes, all indoors. I think the one in Pennsylvania is also already over. Maybe others with experience in these regions of the country will chime in.

If you're shopping for a Class A, nothing I've seen beats the FMCA Conventions twice a year. Generally, about 1,200+ coaches on display and virtually all the major manufacturers have their model lineups available for test drives. I've test driven about 15 different coaches throughout the years at FMCA Conventions. You can find more info. here . Also, another large rally which features a full range of RVs from Towables to Class A is The Rally , which starts next week in Perry, GA. Just under a two hour drive from Atlanta, GA. Nicely laid out fairgrounds. In fact, I'm leaving in the next two days for Perry. Good Luck!

At LazyDays RV in Tampa Florida at any time of year they will have around 1,716 RVS AVAILABLE on display. It is like being at an RV Show only they don't charge admission.

IMHO, the second largest show after the Tampa show, is the RV show held in Hershey, PA each September.

Pennsylvania RV Show

Thanks to you all for your comments.

December or January are the better months for us to travel, it would seem that Tampa is the better option for us then as we can attend the Tampa Show in January and Lazydays too.
