From teardrop trailers carrying only a bed and an outdoor kitchen to rolling mansions on Freightliner truck carriages, there’s no lack of variety in the lineup inside the DeVos Convention Center at the Grand Rapids Camper, Travel and RV Show, Michigan Live reports.
“There will be more than five acres of RVs downtown this year,” said show producer Mike Wilbraham. The annual show began Thursday and continues through Sunday (Jan. 14-17).
“This is the first time we’ve had vehicles in all three exhibit halls, plus an overflow into the Steelcase Ballroom,” Wilbraham said in a news release. “The growth in the show reflects a nice trend of growth in the RV industry, as a whole.”
Demographics are playing a role in sales for many dealers, according to American RV General Manager Chad Neff.
“We’re starting to see a big increase in sales to the younger millennial generation,” Neff said. “These are young people with families or even young couples who don’t have children.”
An RVers breakfast will be held Saturday, Jan. 16, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. to benefit Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital. Cost is $6 for adult and $4 for children.
