Not to steal your thread, but I'm thinking along the same lines. We bought a tt a year ago and have found it to be way to small for us. I really hate to trade again so soon but it is just to cramped with the grand kids much less any one else staying with us. although I'm not going to carry it with us to the show in Dallas this weekend. I'll carry pics.
Go for it. Hopefully the weather will be good. I would stay with the TT, to be able to show it. Get a cooler with some sodas. Throw a couple lbs of hot dogs on the stove and make it like you are tailgating. You may draw more people, I would never turn away a free hot dog while I am RV shopping. The very least, it will make the day go faster, your fed, and you may fall in love with it again if you get no buyers. Best of luck.
I have seen some do this at the NEW JERSEY CONVENTION & EXPOSITION CENTER RV show.
This RV show is located in an office park so what they have done is park their RV or TT in the lot of one of the other office buildings leading up to the convention centerer, This is on a Saturday or Sunday so the regular office workers are not there and the lot is empty anyway.
I have seen them sitting there with the RV or TT, if it is a TT they are still hooked up to the TV in case they get chased away from the police or security

If you are on private property not connected to the trade show I don't see how they can say anything at all. Yes you are scabbing off the trade show traffic, but that doesn't mean you can't take advantage of increased exposure.
Have you ever seen roads with 10 car dealers in a row, or several used car dealers in the same vicinity of a large new car dealer? They're all feeding off each others' buyer traffic.
If you have permission from a property owner to park there during the show, I don't see how they can say anything at all.
These days, it's a tough sell. This will defenately increase your odds. Try Craig's list also, its free.
I plan to go to the same show. I recall private rigs for sale in past shows, like the one in Hershey, so go for it and lots of luck.
If nothing else, and it doesn't sell there, park it in Home Depot with a sign, or Walmart. Leave it there in the lot and pick it up later. Or even the local mall lot.
It's probable that if people are shopping, they'll check Craigslist the week before the show, so I'd post an ad, and say a "see this trailer in the parking lot by the rv show" or whatever. You can hang out there, and show it to folks that show up.
I'd also invest in some carpet plastic, just in case, you might have a LOT of lookie loos.

I see many RV's at RV show parking lots with For Sale signs in them.. But, I'm sure it's up to the show or who ones the lot you are parking on?
I know at something like the Barrett Jackson auctions, you are not allowed to have For Sale signs on your parked vehicles, but they tell you that up front and if they see a vehicle with a For Sale sign in it, they will tow it...
