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.I found that generally what they say is not true. It's a shame because when we shop for a motorhome we want factual data upon which to base our decision. Many of those guys are basicly car salesmen that are selling something bigger than a car, but in their mind it's similar.The way I figured out what kind of person I was talking to was to go to an RV show and collect literature as well as look at motorhomes. When I decided what I wanted to look at more closely, I studied the weight and towing ratings. Then when talking to the salesmen I would ask what the ratings were. You would be supprised how many just made up numbers. The funny thing is that all of the ratings are on a sticker inside one of the cabinets, and many of them didn't even know that! At least I knew to move on at that point. If they knew the answers, or at least where to look, then they were worth the time to talk to.
