When the six top First Coast RV dealerships converge on the Jacksonville Equestrian Center grounds for the 2017 Jacksonville RV MegaShow, no doubt their 400 new motorhomes, fifth wheels, trailers and pop-ups will be the major draw for the four-day event that begins Thursday.
However, in addition to the dealers, there will be more than 30 companies using the show to tap a growing market of accessory and aftermarket buyers. Due to demand from those vendors, the Florida RV Trade Association’s Northeast Florida chapter is opening more exhibit space this year.
Businesses representing everything from RV campgrounds and resorts to kennels and welding services will be on hand to introduce visiting RVers and consumers to their products and services, especially newer RV-related businesses.
