Hershey, PA RV Show

Has anyone been? Not really looking for an RV, just interested in vendors, seeing products, looking at what is new or not.
Have been wanting to go for a couple of years, need to start planning now to make reservations.
So, have you gone? Would you go again? What made it worth going to for you?

Thanks

"not really looking for an rv". We've all said that before. I wasn't looking for the new dually in my driveway either, but there it sits

Vendors were ok, mostly the whole center was camping world, the required guy that refits your bathtub.. Blah blah..

That being said we are going this year. I like to see all the new models and see what is out there. We plan on having this trailer for many years but it is still nice to see where the industry is going as time goes on. Let's us plan if you will.

We now only go during the week because they let you park IN the park. On weekends they put the people in a grass (last time very muddy) field and you walk across the roadway to the park. It us also much less crowed during the week.

Hershey, PA RV Show

We have gone every year up to last year. The show interfered with bike week in OC. Plus we just bought new toy hauler a month before. As DOC said vendors were ok. Good to view items. Then go home and buy on Amazon. The whole center of arena is parts and gadgets. Up around the top with the concessions are the campgrounds from all over. Nice and fun to go. We enjoyed every year. I've gone on weekends and did not seem bad. I only parked in field once. The show is much better than the others around the area.

Been going there for several years now. Like others have said, the vendors are good. For the area, it is well laid out. Stay outside if you want to just see RV's. Inside is talks, demos and small vendors. Lots of vacation spots, hitch, light and other vendors, etc. And of course, CW is in the middle on the floor.

Always cool to see the next innovations. Have fun.

We go most years - we live only 90 mins from there. Always fun to see the new models, and to walk the vendors' stands and tables. There are so many RVs that you would need more than a day to see them all!

Was there about 2 years ago, it's a great show, you cannot see it all in one day. Lot of different type of vendors.

Have fun and enjoy it.

Have been there. Lots of camping world stuff. I will go again cause it is the best show in this area. I love checkling out all the latest models of RV's. I have never been to Harrisburg, I've been told that's better.

Went to the Hershey show for the first time last year. We were in the market for our first RV, and seeing them all in one area was a plus. We decided there that a Class C was the best option for us, and are now the proud owners of a 2016 Sunseeker 3010DS. Forest River reps were on site offering much information about their products. Everything was there from tiny pop ups to mega dollars Class A's. We felt it was worth our while to dive there from Indian Lake, Ohio. Hoping to go there again to see what "new and exciting" items are on the market or how current models have changed/improved.

We live there and go every year. Bought a Salem TT and two years later traded the Ford 3/4, 6.4 and TT for a 13, 352 Georgetown XL. Depending on your negotiating skills the dealers are motivated by quotas to sell. They bring inventory in from the factories special. The Giant Center is where the Hershey Bears play Hockey and the parking lot is where the units are parked. Inside the arena is where the venders sell merchandise and the RV parks from everywhere sell and exhibit. There is boondocks parking available. What is now the Hershey Park Camping Resort has WSE/50 and WSE/30 for 75-100 units. Harrisburg East campgrounds is 15 min away as is the Grantville KOA. There is a 1000 Trails not far either. MUST reserve early as there is always 5000 people per day.
