We went on Wednesday and arrived at about noon. There was a wait to get thru the gates for parking. After getting into the show we found it to be quite crowded, especially the parts/campground accessories vendor areas. Even though we are local to tampa, we hadn't been to the show in 5 years as we usually winter in Key West, so it was good seeing all the new offerings. We did see that many Class B units were sold on that fist day.
We spent time at the Newmar exhibit checking out each of the model line offerings. What struck me was the sloppy ,rats nest wiring that was exposed in the closets for the KIB system. What a mess, looks like a second grader was assigned the wiring task. We did not go back after the first day, so I gave the second day passes to my neighbors who went on Sunday morning and they said that the place was pretty empty... more sales people than customers. Overall, I enjoyed the show and teh opportunity so see many varied RV's
