We went to the Show right after the "Recession of 08-09" several Mfg.either merged or went out during that period! It was a "Good/Bad" time for RVs! There were still Plenty of RVs at the Show,we spent 1 whole day just looking at TT,nothing else as that is why we went! There were Vendors Inside the Center like you would see at ANY type Show,pots/pans,Life Ins,Wonder Drugs, even RV items!
We knew what we wanted so we focused on only TT units and spent Time in them,the Factory Reps would even run the slides in to show "Access"! Great place to "Compare units and Features" then when you Buy your New unit you can "Change and Mod" it to suit/fit your needs! There are some features by MFG at the Show that Never hit the Assembly Line!
It is the place to go for "Comparing Your Next Unit" We used the KOA in Elizabethtown,Pa.
