RV Travel.com editor Chuck Woodbury is camped out this weekend at America’s Largest RV Show in Hershey, Pa.
Woodbury reports in this week’s free RV Travel newsletter on some of what new he’s seen at the show:
“I’ve explored many of the RVs on display and have been impressed with a half-dozen. I was amazed by the super-spacious Rockwood HW 296 pop-up trailer (photo top left) that includes ‘everything’ — even a bathroom with shower. I also liked a lightweight hybrid trailer by Starcraft, the Travel STar EXP 187TB, with three canvas ‘pop outs’ which make room for two double beds and a queen-size bed, plus all the other regular RV features. It’s so light that it can be pulled by many family cars. Lightweight trailers are the big thing this year and are popular with buyers. Depending upon who you talk with, towable RVs — trailers of all sizes and fifth wheels — are outselling motorized RVs about 12-to-one (some people say 16-to-one),” writes Woodbury.
