NERVDA Holds RV Show At Amusement Park
The New England RV Dealers Association (NERVDA) is launching a new event that will be held in the main parking lot of Six Flags New England starting Thursday (Aug. 21), and running through Sunday. There will be a separate admission for the Summer RV Sale & Show or visitors can buy a combination ticket that will provide them access to the RV show and the theme and water park located on the Connecticut River, just south of Springfield, Mass., and the Connecticut border.
According to an announcement from NERVDA, 15 of the association’s dealers will be displaying everything from popup folding campers to luxurious diesel pusher motorhomes. “There is an RV to meet everyone’s budget and size that will provide them with a home away from home to be enjoyed in the great outdoors at a local New England campground or traveling around the country visiting national parks, historical monuments or vacation paradises. Today’s modern RVs have all the amenities enjoyed at home and include large kitchens, bathrooms and even sleeping arrangements for up to 10 people,” said Bob Zagami, executive director of NERVDA.
The Summer RV Sale & Show will be open to the public Thursday and Friday, 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. until the show closes at 6 p.m.
The sale and show will offer year-end pricing on 2014 models that dealers want to sell before the winter arrives and special pricing on new 2015 models that will be shown in New England for the very first time. There will also be some preowned trailers and motorhomes at closeout pricing.
Tickets for the event are available online at www.sixflags.com/newengland with the special promo code RVSALE2014. A single day ticket for the Summer RV Sale & Show is $15 and that includes parking, or the RV/Park combo ticket, which also includes parking, is available for $54.99. Tickets can also be purchased at the park.
The association has been promoting the show on their consumer website, www.nervda.com, and an active Facebook page that communicates with RV enthusiasts several times each day, www.facebook.com/rvinginnewengland.
“Families want more quality time together and we believe this event will draw outdoor enthusiasts from all over New England and New York to see the new RVs and enjoy a great day as our park that now features the new SkyScreamer that opened this year — the tallest ride of its kind on the planet,” said David Rosenthal, director of communications for Six Flags New England.
