I'm a little hesitant to go to "RV Shows" because of their commercial atmosphere. Right now I know less than the salespeople do, which puts me at a big disadvantage, even if all I'm doing is asking questions---I have no way of really knowing whether what they're saying is true or not.

When we were at the RV show one year we ran into an old neighbor of ours. This guy is a real BS'er. He was selling Terry trailers at the time and we were listening as he was telling his customer about the trailers. Later when we talked to him we found out that he had only been selling trailers for three months. He didn't know much but he sure could make it sound like he did.

On the other hand we've talked with other salesmen who actually do go camping and they can be a wealth of information. It can be difficult picking out the good ones.

Usually the sale people will leave you alone if you tell them you are just looking.

Have fun and come back and report what you saw.
