Regarding the Pittsburgh RV Show, we were able to get to it on the FIRST day, and hour, of the show opening.
The crowds were small, which I enjoyed. We made it through in record time--about three hours. Each year the show has a different purpose for me.
Last year at the show, I never imagined that three months later, I would buy a used (dream) Sunline. (The year after you buy something, the show takes on a different meaning, as you are only looking at different things.)
After the show, there was a little bit of letdown for me, as "the next" trailer maybe a Class C, which were under represented at the show. I was also just a little disappointed as nothing JUMPED out at me --as in I would love to have that!
(Although I may have just been depressed because this was my last full day at home in the US, before starting again for three months away from home, traveling for work across Europe.
Features and new things that I noticed, and liked, where:
-the new V-front end trailers (not a square box) with a cool layouts within the V.
-the use of U-shaped dinettes built on the long side of the trailer (instead of the front). Unlike "regular" dinettes, these things can sleep adults (length and width appropriate).
-One really cool Class C with a "party/tailgate design". A large bar (with with floor-mounted stools). And a HUGE curved couch (and curved table) that could hold at least six people sitting.
