LAS VEGAS – A change of venue was just what the RV Dealers Association Convention/Expo needed to spice things up.

As the annual gathering traveled around the corner from Bally’s to Paris Las Vegas, more dealers turned out and brought a certain level of excitement with them.

RVDA President Phil Ingrassia said attendance for the 2018 event was up by about 16 percent over last year.

The Expo floor also was revamped, bringing suppliers and manufacturers under one roof in one room. Traditional exhibitors such as American Guardian Warranty Service, MBA Insurance, Dometic and NTP-STAG were joined by such newcomers as SnapPad on the supplier side and Travel Lite, Northern Lite and Gulf Stream on the manufacturer side.

The 2019 event looks to build on the momentum from this year, with a location at Ceasar’s Palace slated for Nov. 11 to 15.
