The RV and Camping Expo
The Green Bay RV and Camping Expo was alive and well for 4 days. Kris and I were able to spend several hours visiting the show. The emphasis was definitely on the RV side of things. With only one popup trailer, one A-frame, no teardrops, egg trailers or truck campers, the show highlighted the traditional RV industry products.
It was also lacking in tent camping gear. Other than Cabela’s display with a single tent, it was slim pickings for the more primitive camper. In their defense, Cabela’s did have a pretty good display for taking up such a small space.
Kris and I did find a few favorites among the group. The R-Pod series and the Vintage Cruiser trailers were among our favorites.
Buying A Late Model Used RV
Getting an idea of the price of a new RV will give you some perspective on how much less you should pay for that used one. The RV shows are a great place to do that. You may decide to give up a little in size and features in order to start out with something new, but if something a couple of years old is what your looking for, we do have a few tips for you.
Get It Inspected
An old car salesman once told me “miles on a car are like oats. There’s oats that have been through the horse and oats that haven’t.” RVs of any kind are no different. A simple Google search for RV inspections should yield a few resources for qualified inspectors in your area. We certainly recommend an inspection if you’re spending several thousand dollars for an RV.
We finish off the show with a couple of great ads in our RV FSBO section.Share This:
