The 2008 West Palm Beach RV Show was held at the South Florida Fairgrounds from February 7th through the 10th.

Admission was $10.00 for adult tickets while children under the age of twelve were allowed in free of charge. The event hours for Thursday to Saturday were from 10AM to 6PM and on Sunday from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

This show was organized by the South Florida RV Dealers group and the Florida RV Trade Association. The FRVTA also hosts a series of recreational vehicle themed events all over the sunshine state.

We're years or possibly decades away from buying a motorhome but I've always been fond of the idea of traveling across the USA in a self contained house on wheels.

The WPB RV show was a great experience since we were able to examine the layouts, features and advantages of many RV's without having to visit various dealerships or give our contact information to sales associates.

After seeing a few of the smaller Class C motorhomes in person I feel much more confident that I can handle driving one most anywhere in the United States or Canada.

Even though we had decided,  after some previous online research, that a 20 to 24 foot Class C RV would suit our needs the best, I still enjoyed taking a tour of the other types at the show.

We were able to sneak a peek into truck campers, conversion vans, fifth wheel trailers, Class B, Class A, and a few of the "Fun Mover" big boy toy haulers.
