2018 Puyallup RV Show Is Almost Here

The 2018 Puyallup RV Show is almost here! Ahhh, Spring is here and thoughts of adventures are popping up. Do those adventures include an RV trip or two?

The last big RV Show before the summer is coming up at the fairgrounds in Puyallup. The Puyallup RV Show (http://puyalluprvshow.com) starts May 3rd and runs through May 6th. This show is huge with over 20 acres of RVs on display, inside and out. It includes many seminars about the RV Lifestyle with fun stuff for the kids. And, you’ll find a great selection of pre-owned RVs at the RV Corral.

2018 Puyallup RV Show Line upYou’ll find hundreds of new RVs at the show with 20 local area dealers (http://puyalluprvshow.com/dealers) represented. The show has been expanded to include the Pavilion building and additional area up to the Gold Gate. You’ll want to hop on the People Mover because there are more RVs to see!

2018 Puyallup RV Show Accessories DisplayIf you already have your RV, consider coming to check out some of the attractions (http://puyalluprvshow.com/attractions). You can see some of the latest technical products at the “Ask the Tech – Mods, Accessories and More” display and ask questions of the experts on-hand.  Go to the Travel Trailer Hitching & Unhitching demonstration to get some tips you may not have thought of. If you’re relatively new to RVing or are coming with an interested friend or family member, visit “Hands On RV 101” and sign up for a demonstration where you will be walked through the operational systems of an RV and get informed about what you need to do to successfully operate your home on the road.

2018 Puyallup RV Show manufactured homesAnother unique attraction at this show are four fully furnished manufactured homes on display. These homes are a sampling of possible vacation homes, retirement homes or additional dwelling units and may fit with your unique RV Lifestyle. There is even a special “Manufactured Housing Day” (http://puyalluprvshow.com/mhd) on Thursday where you can attend a one-time Q&A seminar about manufactured housing with experts from the industry on the panel.
