We arrived to the Tampa Fairgrounds on Jan 15 and attended Industry Day on the 16th, which isn’t open to the public. This gave us a great opportunity to talk to some of the manufacturers and vendors and get an Overview of the show before it got super busy.
We followed that by chatting with the MORryde guys about their independent suspension system that Tom has been drooling over for a couple years now. After that, we talked to the President of Spacecraft Mfg who makes special custom fifthwheels. NuCampRV was next on our list to change things up – looking at more truck campers and a few cute teardrop trailers!
I got to talk to Andrea Graves from DRV’s Interior Design and learn about what goes into the interior design of RVs. Who knew! She also tells us what’s new in 2018 for DRV, including a new wood option (big deal since so much of the interior is wood) and a new exterior paint option.
Day 4 & 5 (Last Day)
On Sunday, the last day of the show, Tom was feeling well enough to join me to see a few more things before we departed. We tour a New Horizons RV that we really liked, headed over to the other supplier building and talked with Deer Creek Motocoach Resort and Slide Master.
