Region One of the Florida RV Trade Association (FRVTA) returns for its 16th annual admission-free recreation vehicle show at the Lee County Sports Complex/Hammond Stadium in south Fort Myers April 1-3, Nelda Iacono, president of Region One, announced in a news release.
The three-day RV SuperSaver Show will feature 10 dealers from throughout Florida’s Gulf Coast displaying a wide selection of new, used and leftover recreation vehicles of all styles, brands and price ranges. RVs on display will include gas and diesel motorhomes, travel trailers, toy haulers, fifth-wheels, park models and van and folding campers. RV suppliers also will be on hand.
“This event is held just before the summer traveling season, so consumers can make their plans to see our great nation,” Iacono said. “Dealers also need to reduce their inventory from the busy winter season, so prices for new and used RVs have been reduced as well.”
With a recovering economy, the RV Industry has traveled along as well. Financing for both dealer inventory and qualified buyers has improved, resulting in a market that has seen RV sales markedly recover for both new and used merchandise. In fact, the national Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) reports that January 2011 wholesale RV shipments tallied 17,800, up a healthy 12.7% from the January 2010 total of 15,800.
“Statistics continue to show that an RV vacation is much less expensive than other vacation travel options, even when a purchase is factored in,” Iacono continued, “Add in the security complications and additional expenses of air travel today and an RV vacation is a bargain.”
