The Houston RV Show is one of the best places to learn more about the right traveling experience on wheels that will suit your needs. The event lasts from February 8–11 at NRG Park in Houston, Texas — and make sure to read up about parking before you go.
Although attending a show like this may feel overwhelming because of the high volume of sellers, RVs, and people, all you need is to be prepared ahead of time to gauge your time and interests well. To be efficient, know what questions to ask before heading there, and take a look at these tips.
The Exhibitor Showcase
This is the place to be to see all the latest and greatest in the RV world! As for RV dealers, this is the list of who will be there:
- DeMontrond RV
- Holiday World
- Lone Star RV
- PPL Motor Homes
- Ron Hoover RV
- RV Station
- Terry Vaughn RVs
- Topper’s RVs
Do your research ahead of time so you know what brands you want to learn more about on site. You may discover new features or specific models that are available at the event, as well, so have your notes app on your phone ready or bring a notebook. Also, keep in mind it’s perfectly OK to take photos of what grabs your attention so you can remember what caught your attention while walking around.
What to Expect
RV shows aren’t only a gathering of brands, they’re also a competition of sorts for the best camper trailers, pop-up campers, motor homes, fifth-wheelers, and more. These companies are looking to make the most of their presence, so go in with an idea of what you’re looking for, what your party size is, and what your budget needs to stay at. Enjoy the seminars, demonstrations, and activities, too!
Engage with Knowledge
Now that you have a plan of action, the next thing you want to do when you arrive is be prepared for interacting with dealers and exhibitors. For dealers, check their price list to see if they’re offering discounts or promos. You can also ask them for any special offers they may have because some companies tend to be more flexible at shows. You may even get a discount for what you like even though it isn’t advertised upfront. Ask about new models and upcoming releases, as well, because they may not be on display yet, and also ask about parts, distribution, maintenance, and more.
Preparation Is Key
You’ll save a lot of time with a plan. Prepare your exhibitor path, gather questions, gauge preferred models, and explore the latest trends and gadgets. Make the most of your time and have a blast with your family or just by yourself during this annual Houston RV Show adventure!
