The RV Super Show In Tampa–Wednesday–January 16, 2013
This is the third year in a row that we have gone to this huge RV show at the Tampa Fairgrounds. Every January, the show runs for 5 days – Wed thru Sunday. We stopped at Lazydays on our way to the show to have breakfast at The Crown Club. That was nice and it is always fun to see the people that take care of our rig. We’ll be back here in March for a few warranty and maintenance issues. After breakfast, we headed off to the RV show to hang out with thousands of our closest friends;o))
We actually ordered Baby at the show last year!! We are just thrilled with our rig, so we were not looking to buy another RV. I did, however, have my wish list of things I was looking for. Even if you aren’t buying, it is fun to see the different RVs. We went through every type from the multi-million dollar Prevosts to truck campers.
Little too over the top… We’ll stick with Baby!!
Hmm… This would make a cool toad;o))
It's called a Tiger Adventure Vehicle, 4x4 camper!!
Who says you can’t take it ALL with you!!!
One of our favorite stops was at the Vintage RVs.
These units have been beautifully restored and are still used regularly by their owners.
They just make you smile:o))

Many vendors and campgrounds were displaying their goods.
There is not shortage of “stuff” you can buy.
We ended up buying three items on my list – an “Xtreme” vent cover, a gallon of 303 Tire Protectant and an under-sink water replacement filter which we need to change shortly. It was a warm day, even HOT at times and we heard people complaining about how crowded the show was. It wasn’t bad early in the day, but the crowds did pick up as the day went on.
With all these people, we felt sure we would bump into some fellow RV-Dreamers.
We stopped and chatted with Paul and Jill, the infamous ‘Dunkin Donuts’, from the Carolina Clan group;o) After a short visit and a ‘see you down the road’, we decided we were ready to head back to our site at Hillsborough River. Originally, we had planned to go to the show today and tomorrow, but after today, we are ‘showed out!!’
