Although a chance of rain in Hershey is predicted for later in the week, the Hershey America’s Largest RV Show got off to a great start, PRVCA Executive Director Heather Leach says.

“The training workshops are all nearly full and the manufacturers are busy with their last-minute booth details,” Leach says. “Our tally of public attendance may not reach the 2017 record of 64,000 people but we should match or exceed last year.”

PRVCA reported 59,284 people attended public days at in 2018.

The industry appreciation dinner scheduled for tomorrow evening is sold out, Leach says, but some seats remain for tomorrow’s RV Woman’s Alliance breakfast.
