Spokane show is this week end. I can't wait to check out the rigs, buy an expensive cola and a soggy pretzel. I wonder if they take Canadian money at the gate?

We just last weekend stopped in at the Pleasanton, CA RV show.

As usual, what we already have that we love can't be found anymore. Hmmm .... I guess that's because nobody wants it these days [emoticon] :

- 24 foot Class C
- Heavy duty E450 chassis
- 2 always ready queen size beds plus full size bed, if needed, from a quick dinette conversion
- Three burner cooktop
- Oven
- Gobs of exterior storage in seven outside cabinets
- No slides for mechanical reliability
- Large tanks
- Full spare tire
- Manual awning with dual support modes for reliability and use in moderate winds
- Main engine battery charging, if desired
- Built-in generator battery charging, if desired
- Good ground clearance all around for gravel/dirt off-highway use
- Heated and remote control mirrors
- Outside shower
- Outside entertainment center
- Built in walkie-talkie rack with four automatically charged units for hiking, boating, etc. use
- Automatic exterior steps
- Drives like a small van, even with passing trucks and high sidewinds
- Gobs of power
- Swiveling and extending lounge chair
- Lousy gas mileage

I go to RV shows to shop for home improvement items such as windows, remodeling, and foundation waterproofing. Sadly you can't shop for RVs at home shows lol.

Re: Class B: At 6'4", I doubt you will ever be comfortable in a B. But many of us find them to be the best mix of options. And, yes, you can be very comfortable for extended travels once you understand what you can and cannot do.

Many options out there.

When they started charging 14-15 bucks and 10 to park I stopped going.

The Springfield MA show is relatively cheap, $10 per person with coupon and $5 to park, we stay clear of the concessions and the soggy pretzels, we usually find better eats at the local restaurants afterwords. [emoticon]

HA! You have not been to a big boatshow like Miami or Annapolis then. Been some years, at least 8, but last time I did Annapolis Powerboat Show it was $25 plus parking.

Been awhile since going to a RV show too. Done Hershey a couple of times. Never saw anything nicer than I already have so not much desire to return.

At the St Louis show a few years ago part of the entertainment was a fellow wearing a t shirt "ask me about the lemon trailer I bought from xXxX dealer "

We kick off our RVing year by going to the Providence RI RV and camping show which runs March 1st to the 3rd. We make it into a night out. We go to the RV show then walk over to the Capital Grill for a best in the area steak dinner. This is the only show we go to because I'm broke!!!!

Our RV show has those lovely mini cinnamon sugar donuts. Mmmmm. Definitely the highlight of the visit! [emoticon]

In the beginning we used to like going to the show. Last 2 or 3 times we looked at each other afterwards and it was like, "geez, so why did we go again"?? Would have been more fun spending the day at the mall...

The vendor booths don't seem to be as good as they used to be either.
