Thousands of people pulled into the 30th Annual Richmond (Va.) Camping RV Expo at the Richmond Raceway Complex on Saturday, checking out RVs ranging from $8,000 fold-down tent trailers to $100,000-plus motor homes, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.
“We’re selling a lifestyle,” Lindsey Reines, president of Reines RV Center in Manassas told the Times-Dispatch. “People don’t have to have an RV.”
But people sure do want them.
Reines is investing $2 million to open his second location this spring in Ashland.
“We think this is a great area,” he said.
RVs at the raceway were packed with electromechanical gadgets and accessories: big LCD TVs, Bluetooth radio, power awnings.
“We have an RV, so we like to come see what’s new,” said April McArthur of Stafford County, who was at the 30th annual Richmond Camping RV Expo with her husband, Chris, and their three young children.
