RV Shows are the perfect way discover what type of RV is ideal for you and your family. They can also be the ideal place to buy an RV, as great deals can be had. For more information on the types of RV’s you are likely to encounter at an RV show, check out the guide to the pros and cons of RV types.

Some RV Shows are massive expositions, and some are quaint affairs. If you’re going to one of the big shows, make sure to check out their website (linked below) for a floorplan and list of vendors and create a plan of action, otherwise you may find yourself overwhelmed.

RV shows are also a great place to take short seminars from industry experts on everything from travel destinations to full-time living and picking the right truck to pull a trailer. Some seminars are free, and some have an additional charge, if this is something you are intrested in, make sure to check out the website for information and potential cost before arriving, as often the seminars can only hold a small number of people and fill quick on the weekends.

RV shows generally run the course of a weekend, with some starting on Wednesday or Thursday. Weekdays are usually the easiest to attend, but if you’re buying, your negotiation stance improves towards the end of the show as vendors are eager to make deals.

Below is the schedule of upcoming RV shows across the country, which is periodically updated as dates are announced. If you have a show you’d like added to the list, please visit our “contact us” page and we’ll add you to the list.
