Looking ahead, Starr noted the association will maintain its focus on dealer education and tech training in the coming months.

In addition to the newest RVs of all types, show visitors could peruse camping accessories and related products and services, campground particulars and vacation destinations. Interested visitors were invited to attend any of the hourly seminars included with their admission ticket.
