Listen to this story

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The Century Center is full of brand new 2019 model RVs at the best prices of the year at the Valley RV and Camping Show which opens Friday.

It’s the first opportunity for most people to see the latest and greatest recreational vehicles, including campers equipped with everything from indoor fireplaces to outdoor kitchens, and to make a deal at the best time of year, the release noted.

“This show is a great place for buyers to compare features, floorplans and RV types from a wide variety of manufacturers,” said Matt Rose, show director. “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% to 25% below the manufacturer’s suggested retail price.”

The show features a variety of recreation vehicles, including motorhomes, fifth-wheels, toy haulers and travel trailers.

“Whether you want to drive or pull your new RV, there is something at the show to fit every budget and camping style, including smaller, light weight RVs that cost around $100 per month,” said Rose.

Booth vendors are on hand representing campgrounds, suppliers and providing camping information. RV manufacturer’s representatives will be on hand throughout the show and dealers are offering special financing packages.

The show featured 84 brand new units and dealers at the 2019 show include: International RV of Elkhart, Indiana RV Connection of Middlebury, Wana RV Center of Shipshewana, Total Value RV of Elkhart, Goshen RV Supercenter, and Moore Custom Trailers of Nappanee.

The event opens Friday and runs through Sunday. Hours are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $8 for adults and kids 15 and younger are admitted free.
