Held annually at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, Florida, good weather, amplified media coverage and increased interest in RV camping contributed to the crowds, states the release.

“Thanks to the manufacturers needing more space this is the largest SuperShow we’ve ever had,” said FRVTA Executive Director Lance Wilson. “The weather is going to be just about perfect the rest of the week so we’re anticipating record crowds again this year.”

The theme of the 2018 Florida RV SuperShow is, “Wherever You Roam, You’re Always at Home,” implying RV campers can bring hunting gear, fishing equipment, bikes and most of the comforts of home on vacation. The show also features free entertainment, from clowns and unicycle riders to barbershop quartets and bagpipe bands.
