I'd be suprised if anybody showed. Anybody here thinking of buying an RV anytime soon?

Strong attendance but weak sales. That's a given.

I would go see the latest models but will not be doing any buying.

Oh yes I am interested in an RV! Sure Obama is going to nail gas with a big fat tax next.

From the greatest TV show ever, "Breaking Bad" (I think the title is a take off on the expression 'making good'), I have learned that RVs are money makers not expenses. You'll find my new one parked on a dirt road just outside of town creating profits. If interested in the show start from episode 1 in the first season and enjoy the education.

Remi,

It's in its second season on AMC(Sunday nights). Bryan Cranston(the dad from Malcom in the Middle) won an Emmy for best lead actor last year for his role. Start from the begining(You Tube).

My husband and I attended the RV show at the Pleasanton Fairgrounds today. What a big disappointment! The last time we came to this show the rigs were parked among the trees and on grass. This year it is on asphalt which is hot! Very small selection with too many used rigs. We left and won't be back. This show was so inferior they should have paid us to come in rather than the other way around.

Charging to see an "RV Show"? Plus charge for parking? come on people let's not forget we are in a recession. You want people to come and see an RV? make it free and include entertainment, shade, free drinks contests.

The website claims this show is all indoors. It's not?

Can you imagine if Safeway charged you to park and then charged admission to buy groceries? They want me and my wife to pay $22 to park and attend to possibly buy an RV. Unreal, this IS NOT how to boost sales.
