Two big RV shows, and not one TC. Plenty of travel trailers, fifth wheels, motor homes, etc......

I wonder why, as there is a bunch of pickups down here.

I do really like those forward living room fifth wheels. Those are really nice!

Is it to do with the demographics in that area? Could it be biased towards those of much older years wanting to enjoy the sun and relax in a spacious RV as opposed to those who want to go boondocking in the Rockies?

I guess due to the cost of having a stand at a show RV manufacturers have to think very carefully about where their biggest target audience will be and spend their money attending shows in those areas.

It's a sobering/humbling reminder of how small the TC market share is.

Heck I went to an RV show here a couple weeks ago where they ADVERTISED that there would be truck campers... There were none.

At least the sales person we talked to knew what a Truck Camper was. Seems no one else down here does.


I was there on Saturday, and it started raining and lightning.

I kept telling the wifey to find the nicest unit, so we could hold up in it. Of course no ac was on, so it was getting hot.

Truck campers down here are rarer than hens teeth
