If you’ve checked out our events calendar lately, you’ll know that RV Show and Dealership Open House season is in full swing. Dealerships are coming together in cities across the country, or hosting their own open houses, and displaying what’s new and exciting. Even if you’re not in the market for a new unit, they are still great fun. We’re sharing 8 things we love to do at RV shows and open houses, other than buying a new RV!
1. Learning about the RV lifestyle
RVing isn’t just a hobby, it’s a way of life. You’ll find ample opportunity to learn about how people live the RV life, from weekenders to full-timers, and everything in between, as well as the gear you need to make it happen.
2. Swapping stories with fellow RVers
Look around at any RV show or sale and you’ll find fellow RVers with tales to tell. From favourite units to tried-and-true RVing hacks, we love the opportunity to swap stories and advice with other RVers.
3. Bringing the family together in a shared pursuit
Nothing brings a family together like packing up the RV and hitting the road, so bring everyone along to check out the fun. You’ll be inspired to start planning your next family trip in no time.
4. Seeing what’s new and exciting – even if you’re just looking
RV shows and open houses are a fun way to keep up with the current trends and new features, even if you’re not looking to upgrade yet.
5. Adding new gear
Many dealerships bring along a selection of popular parts and accessories to RV shows, often at special show pricing, so take the opportunity to find new gear and supplies. The same applies during open house weekends!
6. Discovering new destinations to add to your bucket-list
Chat with fellow RVers, ask the sales people, and collect recommendations for new places to travel and campsites recommendations. You just might discover a new favourite.
7. Upping your technical know-how at seminars
Take the opportunity to sit in on some seminars to learn from the pros. Many RV shows offer a good variety of how-to seminars, and you’ll even find some offered at individual dealerships.
8. Reconnecting with your favourite RV Care dealership
RV shows and open houses are a great time to stop by and rediscover everything your local RV Care dealership has to offer.
