Virginia RV Shows

The Dulles and Richmond RV shows are coming up soon, so I thought I would post a little info for those that are interested.

Dulles RV Show will be held on Jan 14th to the 16th. 25th Annual Washington Camping RV Expo | Affinity Events

I have contacted the local representative of Affinity Events for some details. Last year, the Dulles Show was crowded due to the event being held in only 1 building.......instead of spread out to the usual 2 buildings. That put the same crowd in 1/2 the space, and it was much too crowded for this old boy. Last year, it was done that way because they lost some dealers, and the representative told me that they couldn't justify the additional building.....profits rule. It is going to be in just 1 building again this year, but because of a different reason.....the 2nd building has been leased out for retail. I just want everyone to be aware of possible crowded conditions, especially on Saturday and Sunday.

In my opinion, the Richmond RV show being held on Feb. 11th-13th is a much better venue.....you can actually move around better and see more units because it is less crowded. The Richmond Show will be held in the same number of buildings/annexes as before, so there is more room for people to spread out. There will be 1 less dealer than in years past because due to that dealer going out of business.

When did they move the Chantilly RV show to Dulles. We used to man the Good Sam booth for a few hours at both Chantilly and Richmond. But lately, we have been down south in Florida for the winter and have missed both.

Ken, the Washington Area RV Show is at Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, VA. Maybe calling it the Dulles RV Show is misleading.....sorry about that.

If we get to go to any shows they are in TN. Way to far for us to drive to that one.
