Spring is almost here and so is Camping Season. Although, if you plan it right, it's always Camping Season!
It's March and time for the annual RV Show at Cal Expo Fairgrounds in Sacramento. This year, as in years past, there will be a dozen dealerships selling hundreds of units. This will be our third consecutive year attending this event.
On our first visit to the show two years ago, we had already thought of the idea that one day we could have an RV and work from the road. We actually found out about the show when Burk, Ron's brother, said he and Karen would be attending. They invited us to join them. Burk and Karen told us that they had hoped to get a 5th wheel. When Burk has to travel for work they could pull the trailer and bring their home with them. We told B & K about our idea for our working retirement and the fever began!
We began talking about all things RV with Burk & Karen. We talked about the different types of RVs and why a 5th wheel would work better for them. We walked into many different types of RVs. We sat in them to rest our feet and also to talk about what it would be like in our new life. It was quite a learning experience that first time at a show.
Fast forward two years and we have made an almost 180 turn from that first trip to a show. We are now highly considering a travel trailer where we first thought a 5er would be best. We are now ready to start part-time RVing instead of jumping right into full-time living in the RV.
Will we find a great deal at this show and buy one? Who knows...
But, it's always fun to look!
