Are you referring to the big annual RV show?
If so yes have been 6-7 years ago & will say wear comfortable shoes, there's millions (slight exaggeration) of RVs.
Not sure how the "pandemic" will affect the show?

Thanks Danny. I look into the restrictions about Florida‘s RV rally. The date is January 13. I have no real Schedule but riding and seeing Florida. My son and I each got a gator in okeechobee last year changed my bad opinion about Florida.

We went last year and were blown away by the size and extent of the show. We weren’t looking for a new RV, but were interested in new technologies, vendors and the fantastic seminars they provide. The newer Keystones have better pocket door clasps than our 2015 and the new RV closet doors have automatic lights, both of which I added to our rig. We attended many informative seminars and got some great support from MCD, whose roller shades we had just installed and needed adjustment.

I highly recommend the event, although COVID will probably affect the experience this year. Plan on spending 2-3 days if you want to see everything and attend some of the seminars. And as Danny said, comfortable shoes are a must.

Steve The Florida rv show is amazing with so many different brands of rvs I never heard of. I looked at thought he new Keystone fusion a lot of color and bling. The show is down with people but sales are about the same or higher than last year, the weather has not been great. The indoor pavilions was offering free or reduced week stays at several different Big resorts. There is no lack sale personnel on the ground for each dealership at the show . The show was well organize . They where taking temps going inside mask required inside seemed to be social distances I thank that would change on the weekend . There was a comparison on the Google between Tampa and quartzite Rv show . The thread got it right the temple show is a lot better experience but also cost more money to get the better thrills. Tampa show that I could see had no used RVs . Quartzsite Arizona had as many used as new rv .

Yeah, we decided to stop going to the annual show in Virginia Beach after going to the Tampa show last year. Absolutely no comparison in size, number of vendors and seminars. Did you by chance check out the new Arcadia? If so, would love to hear your first impressions.

I walked right by The half ton and three-quarter ton towable Big sign advertise and didnít bother to stop and pick it apart . I know 13í4Ē Is high for any half ton truck To pull. Itís weighing in about 8800 lbs . I didnít know it was ground braking design for fifth wheels . The cap was more scalloped and appeared to be corrugated Looking more rugged.
