We’re heading to the Minneapolis/St. Paul RV, Vacation & Camping Show again this year. It runs from Feb. 7– 10.
It’s become something of an annual ritual, no doubt fueled to some degree by a desire for winter to be over and that merely looking at merchandise associated with warmer weather will somehow speed the process along. While I actually enjoy winter, by this time of year it’s getting a bit long.
The show is a high-quality gawking experience that offers endless opportunities to begin sentences with: “If I ever win the Powerball…” And the people watching is a key part of the whole experience.
Last year I published a post on purchase criteria for a trailer or motorhome. An additional year of experience has reinforced the validity of those recommendations.
The folks at Hensley Manufacturing offer some good advice in a Jan. 26, 2013, post entitled RV Show Self-Defense. Among their tips: “Trust me, the best way to hate your trailer is to spend more than you can afford, especially when you’re writing a payment check in January.”
Photos and info from the show in a future post — stay tuned.
