Unless you know exactly what you want, I would recommend going before Sunday. Too many to look at and not enough time in one day.

We know exactly what we want. We were there last year looking and decided on the model we want. We would of bought last year but the timing was off.

Hershey RV show

We will be going Saturday or Sunday. IMO I would go one evening before Sunday to look. Lot of things change in a model in a year. I would not buy my model in the new version because they changed enough to make it not as appealing. Plus if you find what you like you can research Internet to make sure their "show price" is actually a great deal. Then on Sunday it won't be impulse buy and you will be armed with Internet prices to negotiate.

Two years ago I bought mine before the show, and glad I did. No one at the show carried my model I wanted. At another show the show price was still more than what I ended up getting mine for.

Some places will offer show prices at dealer before the show.

Good luck.

We are going to browse accessories and check out ideas for improvements.
That is how we ended up with this one!

We'll be there, going to look at the fivers, and then come home and order the one we want from our local RV Dealer, though I may buy the 5th wheel hitch there after we're done looking if I can get a good deal on one
