Are Trade Shows a Good Place to Buy an RV?
February 3, 2023 By Kunes RV

*It’s “show season” in the RV industry. *Many people flock to these large shows as a way to see what’s new with features, interiors, technology and innovation when it comes to all things camping. And let’s face it, it’s a fun thing to do during the cold winter months while thinking about warmer months ahead.

_But are trade shows a good place to BUY and RV? _

The answer is…it depends.

Trade shows and events can be a great opportunity to see a variety of RVs all in one place and potentially get a good deal.  However, it’s important to remember that the pressure of a deadline or the excitement of the event can sometimes cloud your judgement. 

Here are some GREAT reasons to consider buying at an RV Show:

Wide Selection: Trade shows and show events feature a large variety of RVs from different manufacturers, giving you the chance to compare models and choose the one that best suits your needs.1. $1Competitive Prices: Due to the larger number of dealers at a show, all competing for your business, prices can be more competitive at trade shows compared to purchasing an RV at the dealership.1. $1Special Promotions: **Trade shows often offer special promotions and discounts, so you can save money on your RV purchase.1. $1Expert Advice:** At trade shows, you have the opportunity to speak with industry experts and ask questions about the features and capabilities of different RVs. Many times you will find manufacturer reps at the show as well. While they want you to buy THEIR specific brand, they are not there to sell, so talking to a manufacturer rep can be very informative. 1. $1*Hands-On Experience: *Unlike shopping for an RV online, trade shows allow you to physically inspect and tour different models, giving you a better understanding of the RV’s layout and amenities.1. $1

If you’re in the market for an RV and happen to come across a great deal at a trade show or event, it might be worth considering. But if you’re not ready to make a purchase yet, it’s probably best to hold off and take time to think it over.

Just remember to mindful of the pressure that happens at trade shows. Take your time and don’t be afraid to walk away if you don’t feel comfortable. Use the units and pricing that you see to do your homework so that you can make an informed decision about your purchase.
