ELKHART, Ind.—Truma will be exhibiting for the fifth year at the 2017 RVIA National RV Trade show, running from Nov. 28-30 in Louisville, Kentucky. The Truma booth has a new look this year and will highlight the Truma AquaGo instant water heater and accessories along with the Truma Combi and Truma LevelCheck.
The Truma booth will once again be transformed for its annual Christkindlmarkt celebration on Wednesday, Nov. 29 from 1:30 - 5:30 p.m.
“This year’s Christkindlmarkt celebration will have an open house feel to it, so come and go as you wish and enjoy an endless supply of hot Glühwein heated from a Truma AquaGo along with Lebkuchen gingerbread cookies from Germany,” Truma CEO and President Gerhard Hundsberger says. “The Truma staff will also show their holiday spirit by dressing up in traditional Lederhosen and Dirndl’s for the event. That alone will make this year’s Christkindlmarkt celebration unforgettable.”
At last year’s show, Truma held a sweepstakes during its annual Christkindlmarkt party and gave away a vacation for two to Germany. Kelly and Brent Robinson from Oliver Travel Trailers were the lucky winners and enjoyed their week-long vacation this past September. They were able to visit the Truma headquarters where they toured the facilities and enjoyed spending the day with some Truma employees. During their vacation, they also visited Neuschwanstein Castle, the BMW factory and museum, and toured downtown Munich, according to a press release.
Truma invites everyone to visit its booth during this year’s “Bigger, Better, Show” and will be located at Booth 9, Hall 1 of the South Wing.
