Those dreaming about a fun, carefree, nomadic life on the open road should mark their calendars for the 33rd annual Florida RV Super Show, Jan. 17–21 at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa.
“We will have more suppliers’ booths and every type, size and style of RV on the market,” said Florida RV Trade Association Marketing Director David Kelly. “With the addition of new entertainment and more educational seminars, we’re
anticipating record crowds this year. We’re also renewing the two-day pass so the public will have two full days to see everything at the Super Show at no additional cost.”
The theme of the 2018 Florida RV Super Show is “Wherever You Roam, You’re Always at Home,” pointing to the fact that with today’s RVs, anyone can enjoy all the creature comforts while on the road.
The Super Show is the place to see hundreds of RVs, trade-in old RVs or to get acquainted with the RV lifestyle. Florida’s finest campgrounds and resorts will have booth exhibits; a huge display of camping accessories and supplies will be found in the Camping World Store.
Enjoy free entertainment. From clowns and unicycle riders to barbershop quartets and bag pipe bands, the Super Show has it covered. Shuttle service is also free and will carry visitors from exhibit to exhibit.
Seminars are presented throughout each day and include topics that cover how to deal with financial, personal and medical concerns while on the road for
extended periods of time; how to select the right RV for your lifestyle; RV maintenance; and guided RV tours.
The RV market is cookin’ right now. According to the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association’s RVs Move America study, the industry generates an
annual impact of $50 billion per year.
