Chicago Boat & RV Show @ McCormick Place
Yesterday I went to Chciago's Boat & RV Show althogh I was a bit leery since last year we purchased one at that same show. Whould I get new trailer envy?!
Well, outside of the cool new color that Prime Time has added to thier line up, I felt that we made a great choice! Not a whole lot of newer options have been made to TT or 5th wheelers overall. I noticed there were better made counter tops, nicer furniture manufactures (Lane) but it was very minnor and I could confidently move forward into the 2013 camping season knowing that i am not missing much.
This show however really caters to the boaters. There were no Camp Vendors at this event, I believe they wait till the later show in Feb 13th at The Steven's Convention Center where its refered to the Camping and RV Show. That is where you can book sites in advance and save some good money. Those vendors should hit both events as there is good traffic at both for the RV folks.
We ended up buying an inflatable Stand Up Paddle board from one of the vendors that appeared on Shark Tank. Its about 25lbs all rolled up. I'm excited that we will have something cool for the kids this summer.
