CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The North Carolina RV Dealers Association (NCRVDA) is hosting the biggest RV show of North Carolina in Charlotte, Jan. 18-20. The show will be held at The Park Expo & Conference Center at 800 Briar Creek Road, Charlotte N.C. The show will feature ten Independent RV dealers from all over the state. Over 185 different types and brands of brand new 2019 RVs will be on display for consumers; including tear drops, pop-up trailers, toy haulers, travel trailers, destination trailers, 5th wheels and Class A, B, 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 2018 and is projecting continued growth in 2019.
According to a recent report by RV Industry Association (RVIA), “RV industry shipments will reach 539,900 units in 2018, marking nine straight years of growth and – for the second consecutive year – the highest annual total since such data has been collected. This figure is a 7% increase from the previous record of 504,600 units shipped in 2017. Shipments for 2019 are predicted to grow to more than 550,000 units, which would be a third straight record-breaking total.” The RVIA associates this growth to positive economic trends, the growing number of Americans between 55-74 along with the 72 million millennial who are embracing the RV lifestyle.
The 2019 RVs being presented at the Charlotte NCRVDA Show feature enhanced technologies and features like outdoor kitchens and entertainment centers, touch screen control panels, new LED TVS and surround sound systems, fireplaces, wet bars, wine refrigerators and more. You will find Travel Trailers with auto leveling features, new hybrid pop-up campers, European-style van conversions and a variety of smaller tear drop units. Up to date interior design features like dark cabinets, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and more. The 270,000 square foot facility allows the local NCRVDA Dealers to display the largest selection under one roof, which 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.
“We are more than excited to continue to kick off the 2019 RV show season here in Charlotte. With the RV lifestyle growing, and gas pricing declining, 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.”
