The Michigan Association of RVs and Campgrounds kicks off its 39th annual Flint Camper and RV Show today through Sunday (March 20) at Dort Federal Credit Union Event Center (formerly Perani’s Arena) in Flint, Mich.
The show is open 2 to 9 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
The Burton View reports that there will be more than 50 new 2016 units including folding campers, fifth wheels, toy haulers and travel trailers from area dealers including Leisure Days Travel Trailer Sales and Trade Winds RV Center in Clio; New Horizons RV Center, Flint; General RV Center, Birch Run; Hamilton’s RV Outlet, Saginaw; Tri City RV, Bay City; Circle K RVs in Lapeer and McDowell RV Sales & Service, in North Branch. Special show prices range from $6,995 to $75,000.
According to MARVAC, RV sales in Michigan continue to be strong, proving that RVing is becoming the travel choice for tens of thousands of Michigan families.
“Families are recognizing the affordability and ease of vacationing in an RV,” Show Director Bill Sheffer told the View. “Especially when considering the cost and restrictions of airline travel, versus the cost of a few tanks of gas and convenience of being on your own schedule, having personal space and the ability to take what you need and want on a vacation.”
MARVAC member campgrounds from around the state will have booths and information available at the show, along with booths featuring parts and accessories, RV financing and RV rentals.
