RVIA PR Promoting Local RV Shows in Media

RVIA’s recent local RV retail show publicity efforts have resulted in show information and RV lifestyle stories being published in Pittsburgh, PA; Kansas City, MO; Ft. Myers, FL; Allentown, PA; Lake Charles, LA; and Tampa, FL.

More show coverage in the coming weeks is expected in Boston, MA, Jacksonville, FL, Houston, TX, Minneapolis, MN, Richmond, VA and more.

Coverage has been positive with the focus placed on innovative products as well as the large crowds and strong sales being reported at the shows. 

"The reason I think sales were so good this year was the pent up demand we've heard so much about,” said Dave Kelly, FRVTA marketing director. “People will put off their recreational purchases only for so long.  I think we might finally be turning the corner."

"We had a very exciting event,” said Bart Caple, who heads the Lake Charles, Louisiana RV show. “Attendance was very strong, one of our best shows in years, and attendees were buying RVs. Most of the dealers reported strong sales, better than last year.  Overall, the atmosphere was very optimistic!"

Vilma Fraguada, vice president at GS Media & Events, which produces shows throughout the country, added, “Attendance at the spring shows has been strong and filled with qualified and well informed buyers. Dealers have reported successful closings and most have exceeded their sales expectations. Young families are looking at RVing as an affordable way of spending quality time with their children and loved ones . Manufacturers continue to bring innovative upgrades and products that enhance the RV lifestyle.
