The Florida RV Trade Association (FRVTA) releases a summary of its fall RV show season. Despite the Panhandle RV Show scheduled for Oct. 18-21 being cancelled due to damage by Hurricane Michael, FRVTA’s other three events reported close to record-breaking attendance.
More than 4,600 people attended the Jacksonville Fall RV Show, held Oct. 11 in Jacksonville. The other two shows, the Tampa Bay and the West Palm Beach Fall RV Shows were held on the same weekend, Nov. 8-11. The Tampa Bay Show drew close to 7,800 people and the West Palm Show drew more than 4,400.
“Our dealers reported good to excellent sales at all three fall shows,” FRVTA Executive Director Lance Wilson says. “We are excited about the upcoming SuperShow and winter shows based on the results of our fall shows.”
The FRVTA winter show schedule kicks off with the 2019 Florida RV SuperShow, Jan. 15 (industry day) and Jan. 16-20 (public days). That will be followed by shows in Ft. Myers, Jacksonville, West Palm Beach and Ocala.
