The largest consumer RV show on the West Coast opens Friday (Oct. 15) as the 58th Annual California RV Show kicks off its 10-day run at the Fairplex in Pomona. The only RV event staged by the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) open to the public, the 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, and 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.”
“The show is a fabulous forum to learn about RVing,” said RVIA President Richard 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 58th Annual California RV Show also will feature 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 more than 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., Lancaster, Calif., and a travel trailer by Moreno Valley, Calif.-based MVP RV. Other prizes will include vacation packages to Catalina Island in California and Laughlin, Nev.
