Doing some legwork in advance and setting clear goals will ensure that you conquer the RV show, instead of feeling like the RV show conquered you.
Don’t let other shoppers deter you from fully inspecting an RV. Sit on all the furniture, pretend to make a meal in the kitchen, stand in the shower and lie on the bed. Ask a sales rep to bring in the slides to see what the rig is like in travel mode.
Bring along a notepad or use your smartphone to keep track of features you like and ones that don’t appeal. You can use your phone’s camera to take photos of show pricing, model numbers and rig information, and get interior and exterior shots of RVs.
