The winter sports show season around Puget Sound will open Thursday with the start of the 34th annual Tacoma RV Show at the Tacoma Dome.
In the coming weeks, outdoor shows will help fill the winter void, including the Washington Sportsmen’s Show in Puyallup and the Seattle Boat Show.
At the RV show, it’s about camping — from rustic to opulent. More than a dozen Northwest dealers will show some of the latest and most fuel-efficient motorhomes, fifth wheels, toy haulers and travel trailers. Nearly 250 units will be on display.
