It is really tight around the philly convention center when it comes to parking areas and places to maneuver. You are probably going to have trouble finding a safe place to park it. I would worry about it being damaged and I would worry about getting a parking ticket. I used to live about 20 min from there. I don't think it is a god idea. Will they let you post a sales ad at the show.

This is the new Expo Center at Oaks, PA. Lots and lots of room around there.

I appreciate everyone's responses. Some great ideas!

Having your RV there to be seen by that audience is the best exposure you will get all year. The folks headed to the trailer show are thinking about buying.
Print up some flyers with all of the details and contact info.
Stay with the rig and answer questions.
I did this 11 years ago with my Beaver Motorhome.
I got too close initially and they asked me to leave the fairgrounds.
I moved a short distance away near the entrance and still got lookers because I had gotten some good sized "for Sale" signs for the windows. The exposure was good, still.
I did not sell it until a few months later but I would try the same tactic again.

Sounds like a good idea to me! Even if you can't park it in a parking lot, a legal spot curbside will do the same thing. Check local ordinance for street parking though, may need to be attached to TV to do that.

Wouldn't it be terrible to have an unfortunate breakdown in a curbside parking spot? I bet it would take all day to fix!

I would not do it. Two reasons. One, RV shows typically deep discount there brand new trailers. Means you would get less for your used one. Two, most places, whether you know it or not, its likely illegal to post a For sale sign on a vehicle and park it off your property. Bet on the trailer show looking to protect their vendors by having the area policed.
