With the 2017 California RV Show steadily approaching, we figured it might be good to start getting you acquainted with what to expect from the big show! We’ve compiled a list of the 10 big things that you’ll be able to find at the California RV Show.
If this is your first RVIA show, then we hope that this will give you an idea of what you’ll see and experience there. And if you’re a veteran of the show, then it will serve as an excellent reminder, too! So without further ado:
1. New Models Of RVs Of All Types
This particular RV show is known for its huge inventory size, as it takes place on the massive grounds of the Pomona Fairgrounds. With numerous manufacturers and dealerships in attendance, you are sure to find what you’re looking for when it comes to an RV, trailer, or motorhome.
This is also a great time for you get an in-depth look at the newer models of RVs coming out. Who knows, you may fall in love with a new feature or design that you have never seen before. Be sure to bring a camera and something to jot notes on because you’re going to want to remember the details!
2. Special Announcements From Manufacturers And Dealers
As with every year, 2017 will bring tons of new services, deals, and inventory along with it. This RVIA show in Pomona, California is a great place to hear about these things first hand from the manufacturers themselves.
Representatives from brands such as Thor, Monaco, Forest River, Winnebago, Holiday Rambler, Eclipse, and so much more will be out and walking the show! They’ll also usually have scheduled announcements somewhere on the premises, so make sure you pick up a schedule the second you step into the show.
3. Competitive Spirits Leads To Unbeatable Deals For You
This 2017 California RV Show is the place to buy your dream RV. If you’ve been holding out, now is the time to act. With so many dealers in one location, they are practically willing to give away their merchandise just so they can out-perform their competition. You won’t see a competitive atmosphere like this again (at least, not until the next year)!
4. Plenty Of Family Fun
One thing that the RVIA does a great job of is including fun for the whole family. With a Ferris Wheel offering free rides, live music and entertainment, and more, you won’t lack for things to do here when you need a quick break from perusing all those RVs.
Besides which, we find that kids also enjoy running around and getting to experience the new RVs just as much as the adults! You can bet that this 2017 California RV show will have just as many family friendly fun and goodies… if not more!
5. Many Cash Only Vendors
Be sure to bring cash! If you’re looking to buy food, souvenirs, or make other show purchases, cash is king. You might be able to find a vendor or two that accept credit/debit card, but the overall moral of the story is to have cash handy.
6. Hot And Sunny Days
The show takes place just after summer… in Southern California. Chances are it’s going to be a warm day. Make sure you prepare by bringing some sunblock, a good hat, summer wear, and water. The mornings are generally cooler but that midday heat will surprise you! A lot of the dealerships have giant tents, fans, and areas set up for you to escape the sun rays for a while, as well.
7. Free Swag
You’ll be getting more coupons, shirts, hats, water bottles, and other goodies that you might be able to carry at this RV show! Usually, someone is in front of the show handing out free bags for you to carry all your items in. On top of the fun stuff, you’ll also be getting a ton of informational packets which include info on the makes and models of RVs at the show. There are also often contests going on during the show as well, that you can enter to win amazing prizes.
When you get home after the show, it’s a good idea to go through all of that stuff and hang on to the service coupons or discount promotions. You never know when you’ll need it!
8. Insider Information On RVs
Now is your chance to ask all of those questions you’ve been hanging on to. The dealers and manufacturers are at your disposal and are more than happy to answer all of your questions! You’ll be able to get an inside look at your favorite RVs – which may help you down the line on making a decision, too.
9. Consignment Information
Are you looking to sell your RV? The dealerships will have a great deal of information for you on how to sell it. There are consignment options available for you at this show and it’s something you may want to check into.
10. An RV Show That’s Not Just About RVs!
Last but not least, the 2017 California RV Show is not just about RVs! True, that’s what it’s focused on, but there is so much more going on at the show as well.
