RVIA’s 63rd Annual California RV Show Set to Dazzle Crowds

RVIA’s 63rdAnnual California is set to kick off this weekend at the PomonaFairplex.  With diving dogs, sports superstars, television celebrities, singers, media personalities and even a giant Ferris wheel – this year’s event promises to be packed with more entertainment than ever before.

But the real stars of the show are over 1,300 shiny new RVs ready to dazzle throngs of eager fans waiting for a first look at the latest models being debuted by RV manufacturers.

Huge crowds are expected for the California RV Show, which runs through Oct. 18.  But the event is already breaking records ahead of the gates opening. According to RVIA Show Director Tom Gaither, the entire show sold out by the mid-May early bird registration deadline, even with the addition of 100,000 square feet of exhibit space.

In honor of the record breaking, star-studded lineup of RVs, the show is rolling out the red carpet with a new “Best of Show” area at the front entrance to spotlight top models. Other new features include a Ferris wheel for family fun and prime seat viewing of the vehicles and the First Annual American Diving Dogs Championships (guests can enter their own dogs in the competition). Gaither believes the dog event will be a crowd pleaser since many RVers have dogs and bring them on their RV journeys.

Returning for a second year is the Vintage Rally which showcases vintage units and their owners who camp within the show, as well as discussions with RV historian David Woodworth.

Other attractions include:

·        Superstar Appearances: A cast of celebrities, media personalities and sports greats will make appearances including baseball legend Steve Garvey (Oct. 10) and Rick Harrison from the History Channel’s Pawn Stars (Oct. 17).

·        Musical Performances: Jazz singer Annette DiNardo and The Sea Hunters will add live music to the mix in the Vintage RV area with performances Sat., Oct. 10 and both Sundays.

·        Daily Seminars: Nearly 65 entertaining and informative seminars covering topics from Shopping for an RV to Camping in National Parks and RV Care and Maintenance will take place during the show’s 10-day run. Expert speakers include Dave Solberg, The RV Handyman, and John Holod of Travel Adventures.
