Yep guys we did see both buildings and those in our group also agreed that it was less than exciting for vendor offerings. Just our humble opinion.

Maybe I should add we are fulltime since 2000. Maybe that makes a difference in expectations.

Well, I will be there for the vendors buildings and to see the owner's rallies and club rallies to see if that also interests me. I saw that Lazy Days and the rally spots in the parking lot are full so my question is; Is there anyplace else close by to dry camp or stay for one or two days?

D in Davie,
It will be difficult to find a place to park. The only suggestion I have is to get out your directory and call around.

To see the vendors, displays, etc go to this site

On the right side there are links, including one that give a detailed map of the show with vendors, etc. Looks pretty good to me. We're going to drive down in the Toad since we missed out on getting into the Newmar or iRV2 location. Hope to see and meet a lot of you there.

Hmmm, I just ran a 4 day query starting on the 16th and got a no go and then I ran a 2 day query and got a couple of spots. Also, campsites tend to have a 30% no show so you might be able to reserve the first two nights and then work something out after that. Just a thought.
