Traffic was steady at Midwest RV Show

The 60th annual Midwest RV Super Show last weekend saw its highest attendance since before the Great Recession, organizers told the Elkhart Truth.

The event, held Thursday, Aug. 6, through Sunday, Aug. 9, drew more than 4,200 people to the RV/MH Hall of Fame to browse about 300 new travel trailers and motorhomes, said Matt Rose, director of recreation vehicles for the Recreation Vehicle Indiana Council.

“This was our best attendance since 2007,” Rose said.

Rose estimates that the 12 northern Indiana dealers who displayed their products at the show sold about 75 RVs over the four-day event, but added that many of them will see increased traffic on their lots for the next few weeks.

“The sales don’t end when the show ends,” he said. “They’ll continue to see traffic from people who came out (to the show) and found something they liked but weren’t ready to write the check.”
