The numbers are in for the 32nd Annual Fort Myers RV Show and both dealer and vendor participants came away smiling as the event drew just under 12,000 patrons during the show’s four-day run.
“Everyone I spoke with at the show was generally pleased with the buying interest the public had,” said FRVTA Region 1 (the show’s sponsor) President Tom Wegge, who also owns Palm RV. “Patron traffic was strong and despite an all-day rain event on Sunday of the show, we still had great attendance as well as strong sales. All dealers came away with many sales and outstanding leads they can follow up over the coming weeks.”
While not an attendance record, Show Manager Jack Carver was gratified the public responded so positively, especially with a stormy Sunday. “We worked hard to put on a quality event that created a buying situation for all participants,” he said. “But you can’t fight Mother Nature, and I’m thankful the show was successful.”
This year’s annual event featured 15 dealers displaying over 600 new RV units of all types, styles, and price ranges. The show also hosted 100 vendors selling everything from resort lots, insurance, permanent roof coatings, repair services, and other enhancements for the RV Lifestyle.
