RV show

Woo hoo RV Show, The Denver RV show starts today and I'm going tomorrow. Interesting to see what I buy that I don't need.. Last year I bought a new camper and a sunroom. Hopefully will avoid that this year. It will be interesting to see what I can convince myself that I can't live without...

We are going tonight! Since we just got a new unit in May I'll just be window shopping for what the new features are and maybe an accessory or two!

My best RV show purchase was a 5th wheel pin box cushion to protect the little noggins and their nighttime hide & seek & chase & flashlight antics:


It calms my nerves when they're out running around our camper.

I didn't even know it there was such a thing. I saw a tip in a book about hanging a pail but this is much better. I wish there were goodies for sale at the RV show in my area.

It was more than I wanted to spend. But, it's pretty well made.

I actually was fixing to take a flower pot, put some fake flowers in it and then use wire to hang it from the king pin. It wouldn't soften the blow, but would hopefully give awareness to the midgets.

As it goes- this will likely never be tested (and maybe I worry more than there's a real problem). But, I'm happy to have it.

My brother's 5th wheel would hang over a small part of the sidewalk and dad & I were concerned about someone running into it and getting hurt.

Here's their web site:
Fifth Wheel Pin Box Cushions - Safe Zone Corp

I bought mine from the local RV service center.

Ditto, we have a RV show this week in Greensboro NC, Friday through Sunday. I don't need anything since my MH is new but I like to see what's new.
