The 58th Annual California RV Show, kicking off Oct. 15 at the Fairplex in Pomona, Calif., offers consumers the chance to see the newest and best in RVs and RV products while also learning more about RV travel. Set to run through Oct. 24, the 10-day event is the largest consumer RV show on the West Coast, RVIA Today Express reported.
“With the rebound in the RV market and heavy demand for display space at this year’s event, we’re looking forward to having a very successful show,” said Richard Coon president of the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA). “The Southern California area remains one of the top RV markets in the country and a strong show will be yet another boost for the industry.”
This year’s show will feature RV manufacturers and supplier exhibits stretching across 450,000 square feet of exhibit space. More than 25,000 consumers are expected to visit this year’s show to view the more than 800 RVs that will be on display.
In addition, show attendees will also be able to take advantage of popular daily seminars to boost their knowledge about RV travel and camping. Well-known RV driving school owner and instructor Dennis Hill will once again offer his popular seminar “Yes, You Can Drive an RV.” He will also lead a session on “Traveling to Alaska.”
There will also be seminars on “All About RVing” and “So, You Want to Full Time?” from Ron Jones. Jones is a long-time RVer and author who has contributed to several RV enthusiasts magazines.
“The show is a fabulous forum to learn about RVing,” said Coon. “It gives both experienced RVers and those just developing an interest the ability to see an incredible variety of vehicles and gather a lot of information about RV ownership.”
The California RV Show also features live music, appearances from well-known radio and entertainment personalities, and other attractions, including RV historian David Woodworth displaying a vintage 1931 RV during the opening weekend. The 2nd Annual Classic Car Show will also take place that weekend with over 100 classic autos on display along with the vehicle owners who travel in RVs to car competitions throughout the nation.
There will also be sweepstakes prize drawings, including a truck camper provided by Lance Camper Manufacturing Corp. and a travel trailer by MVP RV. Other prizes will include vacation packages to Catalina Island and Laughlin, Nev.
