55th Springfield RV Show Held Feb. 17-20

Mon Feb 13, 2017

The Springfield RV, Camping and Outdoor Show will celebrate its 55th year at the Eastern States Exposition Grounds in West Springfield, Massachusetts from Feb. 17-20.

About 20 RV dealers will be present at the show, displaying their newest models including pop-up campers, travel trailers and motorhomes.

Nearly 100 campgrounds from New England and beyond will be on hand to answer questions and offer free giveaway weekends.

About 80 exhibitors throughout the three heated buildings will offer products, accessories, parts and tasty treats.

The Springfield Show is the largest RV show in New England and had its inaugural show in 1962, where it was held in a single building until it quickly outgrew that format and is now held in three separate buildings across the exposition grounds of West Springfield.

The show will have five seminars on Saturday and four on Sunday from RV dealerships and businesses throughout the region on topics such as work camping, weight distribution and more.
