SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The Century Center is full of new 2016 model RVs at the Valley RV & Camping Show.
The show features campers equipped with everything from indoor fireplaces to outdoor kitchens, a release from the organization stated.
The release stated a new study by PKF consulting found that a RV vacation can save up to 62 percent from other forms of travel.
“This show is a great place for buyers to compare features, floorplans and RV types from a wide variety of manufacturers. With so many dealers all in one place it’s also a great place for buyers to negotiate their best price. Many of these RVs are priced at 20 – 25 percent below MSRP,” said Matt Rose, show promoter.
Like previous years, the show features a variety of recreation vehicles including motorhomes, fifth wheels, toy haulers and travel trailers. But this year consumers will notice the variety of lighter, less expensive towable RV’s, the release stated.
“RV manufacturers have concentrated on using lighter weight, less expensive and recycled materials in the last year,” Rose said. “This translates into a vehicle that is more durable and costs less to purchase and tow than previous models.”
“We also have RVs weighing more than 20,000 pounds and costing upwards of $250,000,” said Rose, “but we also have light weight RVs that cost less than $100 per month.”
Additionally, booth vendors are on hand offering RV accessories, camping information and more. RV manufacturer’s representatives will be on hand throughout the show and banks are offering special financing packages.
The event opens Jan. 15, and runs through Jan. 17. Hours are from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., Friday and Saturday and from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday.
Tickets are $6 for adults and kids 15 and younger free.
