“If our show can be anywhere near the success of the shows in Cleveland, Tampa and elsewhere, we anticipate one of our best shows ever,” said Bill Sheffer, director and show manager for the Michigan Association of Recreation Vehicles and Campgrounds (MARVAC) which annually sponsors the event. “With gas prices going down, interest rates staying down and the consumer demand for RVs at an all-time high – not to mention the 10,000 to 15,000 Baby Boomers retiring every day so more and more people are interested in the RV lifestyle – the stars are lining up. It was a good 2014 and 2015 is shaping up for us to have another good year.”
According to a press release, more than 300 units from 14 dealers will be on display along with 52 vendor exhibits, encompassing all 214,000 square feet of available showroom floor.
All types of new 2015 recreation vehicles will be on display including two new units that will be at the Detroit show for the first time – the Cricket, a space-age looking trailer built by Houston-based Taxa Inc. and several high-end motorhome lines from Entegra Coach.
TerryTown RV Superstore, Grand Rapids, will represent Entegra while the Cricket is being brought by Westland Camping Center.
