Fun Town RV announced its inaugural RV Expo will be held at the Convention Center at WinStar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville, Okla. Set to run Sept. 6 to 9.
WinStar visitors also will be able to play golf, blackjack and spend time at the spa.
“I am personally very excited about this event,” said Jarrod McGhee, Fun Town RV owner and CEO. “A venue like this has something for everyone, and it is free to attend. The days of packing a bunch of overpriced inventory into a convention center and charging admission to see them are over.”
Vendors such as Faulkner, Hi-Line, Dometic, LCI, Denver Mattress, Furrion and more will be in attendance showcasing products and offering customer education. During the expo, shoppers will be able to take advantage of deep discounts on retail accessories.
“People of all ages will find something to enjoy during the Expo,” McGhee said, “and will allow them to shop for their RV needs with the confidence that they are seeing the highest quality products at the lowest possible prices in the world,”
The Expo will have demonstrations on RV winterizing, RV basics, jack systems, as well as a Q&A with leading RV service experts.
Fun Town RV at WinStar will also offer outdoor activities at its new lot. There will be games, prizes and giveaways at the indoor expo and at the dealership, in addition to a kids’ area on Saturday and Sunday, which will include bounce houses.
