Quartzsite, AZ 85346
On January 16 - 24, 2010 we attended the 27th Annual Sports, Vacation, & RV Show. We actually arrived earlier and took advantage of the extra shopping days at the open year round booths that are located outside the big tent area. Several times now we have been to Quartzsite for the main event, it seems to be gearing less and less towards RV stuff and more towards crafts and other items not related to sports, vacations or RV‘s. Even though we did find many deals and bargains, there were way too many booths that had nothing to do with RV’s. Following this show, there is a craft/car show with attendance much less where many of the booths we seen should be located instead.
Maybe we are comparing it to the Florida RV Super Show in Tampa Bay, which we attended last year and was absolutely, totally geared toward RV stuff. Either way, our consensus is that this particular show is slowly becoming less about the title of the show and more about other items. If that is the case, they should rename it so that folks like us who expect all or at least most of the booths to be about the RV Lifestyle but instead find them to be something entirely different can find other shows to attend.
