Making an RV show work for you


Recreation vehicle shows are the perfect venue for a number of dealers and manufacturers to preview their newest motorhome, travel trailer or 5th wheel and for potential buyers to see all the latest bells and whistles.

If you go, be sure to “kick the tires and sit on the couch,” says Chuck Woodbury, editor of and the host of the Better Business Bureau DVD “Buying a Recreational Vehicle.

“Pretend you are cooking a meal to see if there is enough counter and cupboard space,” says Woodbury. “Lie down on the bed. Sit on the commode: can you shut the bathroom door when you do? Is the shower stall big enough for you? Take a look at all the construction. Check out everything.”

Remember that you will be living in this space, so be certain the designs and floor plans work for you.
