Region One of the Florida RV Trade Association (FRVTA) is returning for its 20th annual recreation vehicle show at the Lee County Sports Complex/Hammond Stadium in south Fort Myers April 24-26.

According to a press release, the three-day-event features 10 dealers from throughout Florida’s Gulf Coast displaying a wide selection of new and used recreation vehicles of all styles, brands and price ranges. A variety of RV suppliers also will be on hand to provide information on where to camp as well as various other services to enhance campers’ outdoor adventures. 

“This event is held just before the summer traveling season, so consumers can make their plans to see our great nation,” said Chris Morse, president of Region One. “Dealers also need to reduce their inventory, so prices for new and used RVs are lower as well.”

With the economy growing stronger, the RV industry has fared well. Financing for both dealer inventory and qualified buyers has improved, resulting in a market that has seen RV sales markedly recover for both new and used merchandise.

Morse said another aspect of RVing is its overall affordability. “Statistics continue to show that vacationing in an RV is less expensive than other vacation travel options, even when a purchase is factored in,” he detailed. “Coupled with the huge decline in fuel costs, an RV vacation is a bargain.”

Morse added that RVs are versatile vehicles perfect not only for camping, but for exploring, tailgating, weekend excursions and so much more, with even mundane tasks like driving and cooking becoming part of the fun. “You can bring your entire family together, even the dog, by taking them away,” he explained.

The admission-free recreation vehicle show is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. all three days. Visit FRVTA.org for more information.
