Salem Oregon 2011 Spring RV Show
Just returned from the Salem Oregon RV show. On the billboard outside the entrance the sign reads " The largest RV show in Oregon". What a disappointment. First off the show was not very large and probably should have been billed as a trailer show rather than an RV show.
The emphasis is definitely on smaller type towables and we did enjoy seeing some of the unique ways to use available space. Several dealers brought fivers to the show the majority being under 30 foot. Saw a few truck campers the nicest seemed to be Lance units. There were a few Class B and class C units but what was really missing were Class A motorhomes. We only saw 3 new class A gas motorhomes at the entire show and only a half dozen or so used ones. Totally missing were any new Class A diesel units in fact there were only 2 Class A diesel units at the show; an 08 County Coach and a used Beaver which was locked up when we went to see it. As far as any supplies or gadgets for sale they were basically non. Even though the parking was free and I had a $2 off per person coupon I still think it was a rip off.
