Rally Vendors ?

Did not attend last year but registered for this year. Heard MORE VENDORS versus 2014?! Hopefully even more in 2016.....I need a slide topper for our big kitchen slide on the Silverback.

2014 I tried to get a Progressive hard wired surge protector while there. No one could do it! Wound up with the portable instead.

If you can comment on 2015, shout out.

Last year there were more vendors and they took up two buildings. I believe the vendors come to the rally to sell the products but donít bring employees to install them.

Kind of my feelings also that just selling and not to much in the way of installations. Lots of good stuff tho. Did get a freebee Guy from IR radio installed app on my phone to work it remote. Later RJD

Glad to hear MORE vendors last year. Trend looks good. Hoping FR would help ORGANIZE a tech network to do some installs; steps; electronics, etc. Hard to buy and carry products home and spend the rest of your life trying to get it installed! CW and others are not overly helpful when you do not buy from them!
If I were not so darn old, I would take that $2,000 tech training course. Lots of opportunity at Rally's and just repairs at RV Resorts during prime seasons. Mobile repair services seem never to be where you need them ��.

Just buy that topper at your local Camping World and they will install it for you, for a nominal fee.

I also will be looking to buy 3 slide out toppers at the rally. Hoping to get a better price there.

I'm not sure if better price should be your angle...I found that the benefits are more convenience and advice...I compared many prices at the vendor booths to amazon and if available, amazon always won on price

Do NOT be lulled into thinking Amazon is always cheaper. More Convenient; sometimes. You always need to step back and do your homework. The founders are not BILLIONAIRES by offering the less cost!
Just say'n! In the realm of the American Dream, small business needs us when we can use them.
