The Florida RV Trade Association (FRVTA) reported big crowds on opening day of the 38th Annual 2023 Florida RV SuperShow, on Wednesday, Jan. 18, and they apparently kept showing up through the end of the show on Sunday.
While overall attendance was slightly down from last year’s record of 84,000, more than 79,000 people still attended over the five days. Exhibitors reported sales as good if not better than past shows.
“I think the causal shopper decided to stay home this year, but the people that came to the show came to do business,” said Dave Kelly, FRVTA executive director. “Also, with so many RVs sold in the past year, we had a lot of people coming to shop all the parts and accessories that were here.”
The 2023 SuperShow had more than 1,300 RVs on display and featured educational seminars, a huge display of camping accessories and supplies set up on display by General RV and the free entertainment, which is always a huge hit with the public – from clowns to barbershop quartets.
The 2024 Florida RV SuperShow will start Jan. 16 with an industry day and then the public days will run Jan. 17-21.
