What are the good western states RV shows?

I need to start looking at actual units, not just online searches, for my next trailer. So what are the better RV shows in the western states?

Sure I could just jump from dealer to to dealer, but I hate being watched like that

Lincoln, Nebraska at the FMCA convention. Mix of towables and motor homes. But that may not be west enough. I missed seeing where you are located.

I'm in California. Nebraska is a little farther than I'd like but better than FL or PA

Since you're in California have you ever gone to the Ponoma show? I see posts about it all the time. I've never gone though.

I have not, but since their domain name has expired I assume the show is no longer

It's a good list and thanks for the link, but it only shows one western show through December, Tacoma.

OP, there are no big shows like Tampa or Hersey on the west coast. Most of the larger shows here have been canceled over the last few years, but I did manage to get to a small one at the Alameda Fairgrounds. It mainly was Lance.

Last year was not as good as the year before, but there were still a lot of RV's. Seemed that parts, accessories and such had tapered off.
