Waiting For An RV Show To Buy Your Next RV?

Skip the show to get your best price on a new RV. That's right.  If you think you'll get a better deal and lower price when you buy your RV at a big RV Show, you could be right, but more likely you're wrong. Here's why . . .

Seven reasons why you generally won't pay less for your RV at a show:

  • Dealers have to pay big money to participate in the show.  An average display area for four days can cost the dealer $50,000 or more.
  • The dealership is basically moving its business from its sales center to the show.  Dealers aren't necessarily making more sales at the show, they're just moving their location.
  • Dealers must hire drivers and other temporary employees to transport all of those RVs to the show location and help set-up and staff the show. That all costs money.
  • During the show, there are all kinds of extra expenses, like advertising, admission, meals, uniforms, etc..  It all adds up.
  • Once the show is over, the show must be broken down, RVs returned to the dealership, and back to business as usual, which can take 2-3 days, plus . . . 
  • Sometimes the salespeople who sell you the RV don't even work for the dealership -- they're temporary, and they may not be around if you have questions after the sale.
  • Oftentimes, dealers from outside the area will participate in the show, but if you buy from them, it's far from convenient when you need service or repairs.
