A new venue for the Jacksonville Fall RV Show is expected to draw additional attendance from areas to the south and west of the city adding to the optimistic outlook for this year’s show, according show hosts at the Northeast Florida Chapter of the Florida RV Trade Association.
This year’s Jacksonville Fall RV Show is scheduled for Oct. 10-13, at the Clay County Agricultural Fairgrounds, 2493 State Road 16, in Green Cove Springs, Fla.
“Our venue at the Morocco Shriners center in Jacksonville last year was well liked by everyone,” FRVTA spokesman Ron Whittington says. “Unfortunately, the land was sold and we had to find a new location.”
Whittington says this year’s venue should prove popular with visitors and exhibitors alike. “We hope to match last’s attendance, which was nearly 4,000,” he says.
Relocated to the Clay County Ag Fairgrounds, this year’s participating dealers include: Campers Inn RV, of Jacksonville; Creative RV, of Jacksonville; Dick Gore’s RV World, of Jacksonville; General RV Center, of Orange Park, and Ocean Grove RV Supercenter, of St. Augustine.
The Northeast Florida chapter of FRVTA hosts an annual winter RV MegaShow at the Jacksonville Equestrian Center. Next year’s show is scheduled for Feb. 6-9, 2020.
“The RV industry is so popular in Florida that our members believe two shows a year can provide real value,” Whittington says. The Sunshine State ranks third on the list of states with the highest RV sales figures behind Texas and California, according to the RV Industry Association.
