The 2014 Seattle RV Show opens in just a couple of months. What can you expect at the 51st annual show? Plenty!
For starters, the show has again expanded to better serve you. Not only will the show fill the West Hall and North Hall as it did at the 2013 show, but it will also fill the East Hall. Given current demand the show might still spill out beyond the three exhibit halls!
The show will once again feature all of your favorite Puget Sound RV dealers. Two dealers that haven’t exhibited at the Seattle RV Show before are Clear Creek RV Center and newcomer Open Road RV. The class A motorhome market continues to grow in leaps and bounds and the 2014 Seattle RV Show is likely to feature the largest selection of class A motorhomes in years!
You can count on another full spectrum of seminars again at the 2014 Show. Currently booked for the event are: four different RV maintenance seminars from Gary Bunzer “The RV Doctor”, Hosting in State Parks by Washington State Parks, Boondocking 101 with Dave Helgeson, Finding Gold on the Road presented by Washington Prospectors, Proper Dinghy Towing presented by Tork Lift, Winter Camping Fun presented by Washington State Parks Winter Recreation, several informative firearm seminars including complying with laws in all 50 states and self defense. Other seminars we are working on are: Tour on the Wine Country, Home Schooling on the Road and Trippin’ in the Tri-Cities.
For the younger crowd, the 2014 Seattle RV Show will feature a smart phone App. The App will feature maps to the show, a searchable database of manufacturers and brands exhibited, seminar times along with a build your own schedule feature allowing you to maximize your time at the show, places to take notes of your favorite RV and where you saw it, a social networking page allowing you to share your experience with family and friends, plus much more.
Returning for the 2014 Show will be the “Ask The Tech” exhibit where you can learn more about the technical side of RVing from winterizing to water heaters. A fully equipped RV will be on display serving as your classroom. For those looking for an in depth learning experience you will want to attend the hourly workshops presented by appliance manufacturers and suppliers.
If you are a total RV novice, sign up for the “RV Walk Through, Everything You Need to Know” where you will be walked through the operational systems of a RV. After spending a hour with our well seasoned RV professional you will feel confident in your ability to operate your own home on the road. Walk throughs occur hourly and are free with show admission.
Those taking advantage of the free parking with your online ticket purchase will enjoy expanded shuttle service from the Safeco parking garage to the show compliments of Rex Goliath Wines.
As always, the Seattle RV Show is family friendly offering Free Childcare on the weekend for children 10 and under.
If you are a destination camper, be sure to check out the Kit Cottage display in the East Hall. The Cottage is a small rustic manufactured home perfect for your vacation property.
Those buying tickets at the box office will be glad to know that one dollar of your ticket purchase will go directly to supporting Washington State Parks with our presenting sponsor WSECU matching your donation dollar for dollar.
