Shopping super RV events

I know I will see every product under the sun. What are good buys and what are some that worked great at a show, but not so great in reality. The storage bins are blank slates.

Looking to start rving with some $$$ in the wallet. Since we may be going to camp at a car show and my little red vette need a some parts.

BTW..is there a secret wave that happens among mh drivers. Corvette folks use a "v" (save the wave).

Due your due diligence, and research pricing on units in you local area before you go to any show. I've been to numerous shows and seen big mark-up on the MSRP over what you see at a dealership. This way they can show a big mark-down as a" RV Show Special Price", when it might actually end up being MORE then you'd pay at a dealership in your local area.

I don't really understand what it is that you are asking... RV shows are great places to be able to see a wide range of RVs in a very short period of time. Sometime there are good price deals at them but you need to do some research first so that you know what sort of prices are good. RV dealers are not required to show a factory MSRP the way auto dealers are so most just make up their own price list and doctor it to say whatever they wish. The only way to really be sure what is a good price is to do some comparison shopping before you go.

To answer the question about the wave.
Having had a few Vettes, it is customary to wave at all other Vettes. Most adhere to this custom.

It is also customary for rv's to wave at other rv's.
Very, very few do. I gave up.

What I really mean to say... the shops/stores that support RVing. Example: Cutco knives (love them and slowly collecting set), the newest greatest way to empty your tanks, then best products to keep your rig clean... that type of things that can cause you to go broke. I have seen Good Sam set up there and other types that offer insurance quotes, memberships to camps... that type of thing. Are they a good buy and which ones should I stay far away from. I am sure someone has purchased a product that they thought was great and it was a first - then after 20x of use it broke and there goes your $$

If it's so "customary" why don't people do it? I've also tried and gave up years ago.

Ha Ha, on the waves!
I do know MOST Jeep Wrangler drivers wave around here... (but they must be snobs, in that they ONLY wave at wranglers, not the other jeeps )

I actually got my directv for the house and coach at an rv show !!! so it depends on timing, your needs, and if it is niche enough that you won't find it elsewhere... and besides, you motorhome owners are financially independent, so what's a few bucks?

I used to and stopped for two reasons. I didn't get much in the way of a response , and I got a fair amount of flack from my co-pilot.

Maybe because it took both hands from the wheel Seriously, you'll know it's us when you see us due to fact that I am looking for a Oh Sh** handle and pushing the break while sitting in the passenger seat. Oh boy are we in for an adventure.

We made the jump into an Outlaw residential and now on the official lookout for a sunshade on the passenger and driver side window. And the knife holder that goes behind the cooktop (skinny cutout) Any help?

'Cause we are terrified of taking one of our hands off the wheel!
