Excellent show... takes at least 2 days to see it all IMHO.

Does anyone know of a REASONABLE motel/hotel in the area close to the show. Seems that all the campgrounds are (not surprisingly) booked up.

This is a very big facility , so you can camp on the arena grounds. Checkout their website for details. I have reservations at a campground in Gettysburg PA... 45 minutes away to the south.

Hershey RV Show & Rockwook Mini

Hey Bryan250S,

We're going to the Hershey show on Wednesday. It seems to be the best day since they are all set up and crowds are not too bad. The show is usually VERY HOT, but hopefully this year will be different. We're going mostly to see the Rockwood Mini for 2014. We want to see how roomy it is since we've never seen a traler with a Murphy bed. One of our concerns is the fact that we just purchased a memory foam mattress for our current RV and we were wondering if it could be used on the MB. What's your opinion of your vehicle....pros....cons.

thanks,

We had initially planned on going with friends, but due to work we aren't able to make it. We were really looking forward to seeing all the offerings.

I love my Mini. No major issues and the murphy bed is really nice I think. I still have the stock mattress. I have read a few threads on this website that people have added 3in memory foam toppers on top of the stock mattress and that fits fine. Not sure about a complete mattress replacement though. If your mattress is a true queen size it may be a little to long. I think the murphy bed is called queen sized but may be a little shorter then a true queen you would buy for home.

Bring a tape measure and good luck!

Pretty much all the hotels / motel in Harrisburg & Mechanicsburg will put you within a 20 - 30 min drive to the show.

The following week is when all the mfg show off and ddebut upgrades, floor plans and new units. It is they say a dealer only show but if you drove by and stopped they let u look at the units. This show covers most of Elkhart empty fields soon are full of campers. Each mfg sets up In a different location. It is pretty impressive to drive around and see
