The Florida RV Trade Association (FRVTA) reported a fall show season revealing high attendance.

The fall season kicked off with the Jacksonville Fall RV Show held at the Jacksonville Equestrian Center in Jacksonville, Florida, Oct. 5-8. FRVTA reported over 5,000 attendees in the venue’s first fall show of the season.

The Tampa Bay Fall RV Show was held at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, Florida, Nov. 9-12. FRVTA reported 7,300 registered attendees. Over 500 more people attended compared with 2022.

FRVTA Show Coordinator Patty Flanagan said, “The people I talked to at the Tampa Bay show were optimistic and most of them said they were planning to buy within the next couple of years.”

The West Palm Show returned to South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach, Florida after a three-year absence. The show could not take place because of the pandemic, inventory and Hurricane Nichol postponements. FVRTA reported around 2,500 attendees at the show Nov. 9-12.

FVRTA reported many dealer and vendor sales at all three shows.

The Florida RV SuperShow kicks off FRVTA’s winter events in Tampa, Florida, Jan. 17-21, 2024. Industry Day is Jan. 16.

Other FRVTA shows will be in Fort Myers, Kissimmee, Jacksonville, West Palm Beach and Ocala.
