The three-day Atlantic City RV and Camping Show kicks off today, featuring more than 250 RVs at the Atlantic City Convention Center.
Anthony Tedesco, show manager for Good Sam Enterprises, which owns the show, expects as many as 14,000 people at this year’s event, which ends Sunday (Feb. 14).
“We’ve got the biggest show we’ve ever had here,” Tedesco told pressofatlanticcity.com.
RVs will range from 12-foot towable models priced at $5,000 to 40-foot luxury vehicles, including at least one $500,000 motorhome.
Tedesco said show attendance dipped after the recession but has ticked up in recent years, as seen recently in Edison, N.J., which hosted the New Jersey RV & Camping Show Jan. 15-17.
“(The New Jersey) show has been around for 49 years, and we set a record,” Tedesco said.
John Worthington, marketing director for Driftwood RV, said people had an interest in RVs after the recession but didn’t have the money or availability of bank loans.
“Now, people are less worried about their jobs and more worried about having fun,” Worthington said.
