Have a great time! We went to the DC show last month and had a good time.

Take a look at the Vengeance 40D12 at Economy RVs spot when you get there. Make sure its OK. That's ours.

We pick it up hopefully next Friday. I don't like buying a unit that was in a show but it was by far the best deal.

we went today, alot of very similar floor plans -they all start to blend together. alot of 5th wheels, bigger TTs, and class A's but not much in the popup/Aframe/small TT.
One interesting one was a Keystone with a very different dinning table option, it was more of a bar height with three tall chairs on one side and a tall bank seat on the other and it was right next to the front door and across from the kitchen. And there was a Montana 5th (i think) that had a midship kids room with a sofa and TV area and one fold down bed - but it had a bed over top of this room that was accessed from the hallway leading to the front master bed. It was tagged as winning the RV of the year award. I did really like a conversion van (winnebago) that was on a dodge chassis - It had a nice "large" bath along the back and it felt very roomy. More so than those on the Mercedes chassis that we also saw.
Saw some TTs that had front bedrooms that felt more like those in a 5th wheel master bedroom in that they turned the bed side to side in a slide out or they had wardrobes on a slide.
Another Montana had a rear slide that was a back office area/kids room - it had a sofa with a bunk overhead on the back wall and a desk/tv area across from it. If I was working from the camper - that one would really fit the bill.
gee - it seems that ones that were the most noteworthy were not forest river products.

The one with the side patio? It was sitting there and alot of people were going in and out of it. Do a really good walk through of it when you go to pick it up.
It does look cool.

I'll bet at least a 1,000 people walk through popular units at the shows... In comparison our used TT looked like it had only been out a couple times & we were able to pick it up for 25% less than new (wholesaler) prices. IMO the units at the show should be marked-down considerably but the most we could negotiate was $1,000 less than non-show units... IMO not worth the risks...

My concern with the Vengeance 40D12 is the number of people who crammed onto the drop-down patio... IMO too much weight could do some real damage so you might want to inspect the mechanics of the patio very carefully during the PDI...

My three year old jumped on the patio for ya to make sure it is nice and strong... Just kidding!

I will say, I did not check out the Mohos, not interested in them so we bypassed them.

Not many smaller or medium sized 5ers, lots of monsters and many many toy haulers. We were glad to see many bunk models including the one 5er with the mid ship bunk house. It was very cool. Lots of people and many floor plans that all looked the same minus some different badging.

We were slightly delayed in getting to the show. Today was the funerals for the two deputies killed so they had the whole area shut down for the procession. It was sad, but good to see all the support for the officers.

I am glad we went and gave us some things to look at and keep in mind when it comes time for a new TT. I will say, nothing really impressed me enough that I regret our 26DBh... Turns out this really is the best trailer for our camping style.

Speaking of layouts of the new fifth wheels etc.....I remember seeing a fifth wheel that had a rear bunkhouse with a loft in it that the kids could climb up and sleep up top....I have never seen a trailer like it since...does anyone know what happened to this design??
