FAQs About RV Shows in 2023:

Where are the largest RV shows?

The largest RV shows in the United States include:

  • RV SuperShow in Tampa, FL
  • America’s Largest RV Show in Hershey, PA
  • St. Paul RV Supershow in St. Paul, MN
  • Midwest RV Supershow in Elkhart, IN

What are the benefits of attending an RV show?

RV shows are a great way to explore the latest models and accessories. Not only can you see RVs, but you can also get inside and look around before making a purchase decision. Other benefits include:

  • Meeting local RV dealers
  • Learning about different types of recreational vehicles (motorhomes, coaches, fifth-wheel trailers, pop-up campers, etc.) and which fits your needs
  • Getting exclusive discounts from vendors and manufacturers
  • Discovering new camping and outdoors technology and tools 
  • Enjoying a day surrounded by others who share your interests
  • For new RV enthusiasts, meet people who share the same interest.

What time of year is best to buy an RV?

Head to a dealership in peak summer and you’ll likely find an extensive inventory—but typically, also a higher price tag. The off-season (late fall and winter) is the best time of year to buy an RV at a lower price. Since fewer people are thinking about RV road trips during this period, competition is lower. And you may even find a great deal on a new ride.

Will RV prices go down in 2023?

Prices depend on the brand and type of RV you’re looking for:

  • Class A and Class B motorhomes
  • Coach
  • Campervan
  • Camper trailer
  • Travel trailer
  • Popup camper
  • Fifth-wheel trailer
  • Truck camper

It’s difficult to say for certain whether prices will decrease this year, but with demand lowering and supply rising throughout 2022, prices began dropping at the end of the year. That, coupled with the rise in interest rates, it seems possible that prices will remain lower than average in 2023. Keep interest rates in mind when considering a purchase, as this will influence your loan payments over time.
