Default Hershey Show Meetup Next Week

I've got a casual meetup planned with my Facebook group at the Hershey RV show on Friday, Sept 18. We are meeting in the main parking lot at 9:00 AM at the location shown on this map:





Everyone is welcome to join us. This is just a meet and greet, but I'm sure some will want to break into groups and tour the show.

Let me know if we can expect any of you to join us.

Thanks,

R

Is this show worth going to? Good amount of class Bs? I havent heard any news of a Transit model reveal like I was hoping to see.

No, it's horrible! Probably the biggest RV show in North America. So many RV's you probably won't have time to see them all. If I were you, I'd stay home and buy my new RV on the internet.

Windcrasher meant to say yes. It is worth going to and as stated above you are welcome to join him and his class b Facebook group but bring sunscreen and anti sarcasm spray.

lol what I mean is.....I dont care about any RV except B's. So I was hoping they are well represented from all the companies. I thought I read on here last year that someone was annoyed with the show. That it was mostly dealers and very little in the way of manufacturer reps with real knowledge of the products.

Don't know where those comments come from. Last year there were reps from all the manufacturers onsite. There were lots of B's. Hopefully there are some new players - but Great West Vans is likely a no-show.

Went today later in the day today, good time. I dont really get the chance locally to see B's so this was the first time in person. And we are thinking B+ now. Just a bit to cramped for us when you count a 80lb dog. But I still do like most of them.

The 59G, which I previously preferred to the 59k, was the biggest let down. That bed is just not doable for us. It seemed like a twin bed. Dont know how FitRV does it. And the bath is not as large as it seemed in videos. The sink bulge is annoying. The 59k was nice. Still dont like the bath. Either make it a dry bath or a true wet bath. Cant imagine dealing with that button up curtain. Other then that we really thought that was a nice model.

Got to meet Dean from LT. Nice guy. Really really liked the Unity Murphy bed model. Quality in those units was the best I saw there IMO. Have they stopped pushing actual B's? I believe they only brought their B+ line to the show.

We liked the Dynamax Rev when you consider the price. My worry is the single rear wheels. I guess you could get by ok on a normal B having the Rams single rear wheels, but seems bad on a B+. Curious if anyone here has a B+ on a Promaster and could weigh in on if the single rear wheel is a big drawback on something that size.

I thought the quality of Coachhouse is pretty poor on some little things when you consider they are priced like the big boys. The shower seemed like it may leak the first time you shower.

We've talked before about how the Trend and the Rev drive. You can find those posts with a search. One thing that has been pointed out before is that the payload on these types of RV's is alittle less than the regular B Promaster conversions, but not a tremendous amount. The fiberglass bodies must not be much heavier than the metal van bodies.

I had the good fortune today to talk at long length with Jim Hammill of Roadtrek and Russ Garlin of Winnebago. Very interesting. Sorry I missed Dean.

You can't beat LTV quality. They have suspended their Class B units for the foreseeable future. I think I heard that they are down to an 8 month wait now that they only make the small Class C's. (Unity/Serenity/Libero...and even they are now properly calling them a C on their website... I only nagged at them about it for 4 years. LOL)

I'm surprised at your comment on Coach House, Mr Showtime... They do have a good reputation, but their floor plans and styling never appealed to me. They are the only one piece fiberglass body though. Did you see the Arriva?
