Is it just that giant rv dealer again, or is it multiple dealers?

Yeah I'll go and look at the Class A. Hoping to move up in a couple of years when I retire.

We just did the one in Hershey, PA last week. Booked as the largest in the US. Dealers upon dealers and venders upon venders. It was a lot of fun, but a very long day. Very tiring, but well worth it.

The best show, me and the wife went to look and ended up buying. Going back this year just to walk around and look. Can't miss.

It's great to just go and spend the day. Have gone every year since 1998, got our eyes on a couple units that need further scrutiny. Will we buy? Who knows, want to go a bit larger than what we have now. Somewhere in the 32-35 ft. range with as much insulation as possible with two A/Cs. Just one on the Cougar HC isn't enough, 15,000 BTUs. After all, we spent a lot of time in it and want to be comfy.
Want to check the Grand Designs-Reflections, keystones-Montana HC, KZ-Durango/Gold, Evergreen lines. Buy or not it's fun to look. Happy Campin....

Dear Bride and I went twice two years ago, 1st to prime the pump with the dealers and 2nd time to close a deal.
It was a great opportunity to view many different manufacturers and models and the discount was substantial on our purchase, far beyond anything being offered by any dealers we worked with before the show..

Just delivered an Octane TH there yesterday, a lot of work going on to get everything ready and a lot of deliveries coming in. The people checking us in told me they were supposed to have over 1,500 RV there, but several have shown up that were not on the list so they've pretty much lost count.

If you wan to see what's going to be offered in 2016 this is a great place to go. This is a manufacturer show and dealers will be there checking out the new units as well and placing their orders for next year. Goo chance to see what ever major manufacturer has to offer all in one place.

Well we went to the show on Sunday. We managed to stay for about 5 hours. It was so hot outside it was miserable. At least the motorhomes had the A/C on.

Our main goal was to look at diesel motorhomes. I really like the floorplan of the Bounder 33C , yes I know its a gaser, and wanted to see if I could find this floor plan or something similar in a diesel.

We looked at many and most are just to much money, over $300k.

Then we looked at the Thor Palazzos. Not the floor plan we were looking for but several of their models were very nice and would work for us. Now I know this is a lower quality model, but for the money I think they were real nice. The models we liked were running $150-160K.

I know they have a little smaller motor, either 300 or 340 hp but this doesn't bother me.

I would love to hear some feedback from any owners. I've looked at the Thor forum and they have a Palazzo area. Seems most complaints and for minor things that I could fix myself. Most say they get 10-12 mph.

I plan to buy a used mh when I retire in a year or so. I'll definitely be looking for one of these.
