Charlotte NCRVDA show positioned to set record sales and attendance numbers

GREENSBORO, N.C. — The North Carolina RV Dealers Association (NCRVDA) is hosting the biggest RV (Recreational Vehicle) show of North Carolina in Charlotte, North Carolina, January 19-21, 2018. The show will be held at The Park Expo & Conference Center at 800 Briar Creek Road, Charlotte, North Carolina.

The show will feature 10 independent RV dealers from all over the state. Over 150 different types and brands of brand new 2018 RVs will be on display for consumers; including pop-up trailers, toy haulers, travel trailers, 5th wheels and Class A, B and C motorhomes, all with a variety of floor plans and pricing. The RV industry has been a traditional bellwether for consumer confidence and spending. The RV industry had record sales in 2017 and is projecting continued growth in 2018.

According to a 2017 report by CNN Money, the old-school pastime of RV travel is thriving with sales rising year after year since the 2008 financial crisis, and were up 15% in 2016. With the flood of new technology being embraced by the RV Industry the average age of the RV customer is now younger. “And now the people who grew up with technology are now reaching RV-buying age. More than half of RV buyers are under the age 45, according the RV Industry Association.”

The 2018 RVs being presented at the Charlotte NCRVDA Show include new innovations and enhancements like touch screen control panels, new LED TVS and surround sound systems, travel trailers with auto leveling features, new hybrid pop-up campers, European-style van conversions and neo-classic Airstream campers; not to mention up to date interior design features like dark cabinets, granite counter tops, and more. Having the largest selection under one roof ensures that there will be an RV to fit every budget and camping lifestyle.

The show also features RV-related products for sale, free campground information, free RV educational seminars and free activities for kids. The NCRVDA will be giving away $100 dollar Sheetz Gift Cards hourly, and one Yeti Tundra cooler every day throughout the show. The NCRVDA RV show guarantees fun for the entire family.

“The 2018 RV Show season if off to a great start with our 2nd show in Charlotte this weekend. We already had record setting attendance and sales at the Greensboro Show two weeks ago, so we expect more success in Charlotte. It truly is the best time to shop for RVs and RV related products in North Carolina”, stated Jeff Haughton, event director at Apple Rock Advertising & Promotions. “With hourly giveaways, free seminars, clowns, face painting, shopping and much more, our RV show promises to be entertaining for people of all ages; a one-stop shopping destination for RV’s and a fun way to plan your next family camping adventure.”
