The 67th annual California RV Show opened its doors at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif., on Oct. 4 and the heat couldn’t keep attendance down.
RVIA New & Insights reported that a long line of excited show-goers were excited to tour the new, larger venue, which allows for more products, more attendees and more family fun that can be enjoyed by all. Based on the attendee traffic over the first half of the show, the venue certainly is delivering on that promise.
Through the first five days of the ten-day show, nearly 26,000 attendees walked through the doors, an increase of over 10% from 2018. The RV Industry Association (RVIA) noted, “It’s a testament to the continued growth of the lifestyle and a strong Los Angeles consumer RV market. The venue is also just flat-out, cool, with a festival-type vibe with live music, amazing food from local food trucks, dogs and kids running around enjoying themselves.”
With sounds of cars racing echoing from the track, thousands toured the latest and greatest RVs on the market, looking for the perfect RV to fit their lifestyle. This year’s event boasted over 1 million square feet of exhibits, including 1,000-plus RVs and RV gear from hundreds of exhibitors. The schedule was jam-packed with educational seminars and celebrity appearances.
RVIA is anticipating that the 2019 California RV Show could be “one for the record books.”
