The Michigan Association of Recreation Vehicles and Campgrounds (MARVAC) is sponsoring the 24th Annual Fall Detroit Camper & RV Show, Oct. 2-6 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi.
The News-Herald, Southgate, reported that more than 200 new recreation vehicles will be on display including folding campers, motorhomes, travel trailers, truck campers and fifth-wheel trailers. There will also be plenty of exhibitor booths featuring parts and accessories, campground information, onsite RV financing and RV rentals.
“People can come and look at some of the 2014 models we’ll have, but we’ll also be bringing 2013 and even some 2012 models that we’ll be looking to make a deal on,” said Sandy Vicars of Vicars Trailer Sales in Taylor. “It’s the end of the year and we don’t want to have to pay taxes on these models, so we’ll just be blowing them out the door.”
In addition to Vicars Trailer Sales, Lloyd Bridges Traveland of Chelsea will be among the dozens of RV dealers at the show.
“The RV show is great because it allows the customer to see everything under one roof,” said Harold Vandervoort, who’s been at Lloyd Bridges Traveland for 30 years. “And it’s great for dealers because we look to clean up our existing inventory to make room for the new inventory coming in.”
Vicars said the fall show typically is catered toward motorhome and fifth-wheel RVers, especially those looking to head south for the winter. But that doesn’t mean people in the market for travel trailers, hybrids and folding campers won’t have their share of RVs to look at.
“We’ll have a ton of popups, all at significant discounts,” Vicars said. “People can expect about $1,000 to $1,500 off. The savings will be remarkable.”
At the show, people can enter to win event tickets and camping packages from Michigan International Speedway. Winning package includes tickets and camping to an MIS event of your choice.
The 24th Annual Fall Detroit Camper & RV Show is open 2-9 p.m. weekdays, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
