Panhandle RV Show

October 19-22 2017 Emerald Coast Convention Ctr.

The Panhandle’s largest and only Fall RV Show!  Displaying motorhomes, travel trailers, folding tent campers and fifth wheels! Fun for the entire family!

“This is a great time of the year to come out and look at RVs, said FRVTA Region 5 President John Shuster of Dixie RV SuperStores, “the RV dealers are very motivated to move out the 2017 RVs as they make way for the 2018 RVs on the way.  Also our dealers have a great selection of quality used RVs that are a great bargain.”

There will be about $10 million in new recreational vehicles and RV accessories showcased at the event, with dealers offering discounts, factory rebates and other incentives.  Over 100 new motor homes, travel trailers, fifth-wheels and tent campers will be on display. Also, finance and insurance companies will have representatives on site to help answer questions from visitors considering an RV purchase.

Participating dealers include Camping World RV Sales (Gulf Breeze and Tallahassee), Dixie RV SuperStores (Defuniak Springs) and RV Connections (Panama City).

According to the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA), RV shipments for the first half of the year are up over 13.3% over the same time period last year. RVIA’s outlook for the RV market projects that RV Shipments will end the year at nearly 472,200 units, the highest total since the data has been collected. RVIA President Frank Hugelmeyer expects the industry to peak in 2018 and will mark the ninth consecutive year of expansion.
