Detroit Camper & RV Show, Feb. 4-8, shaping up to be ‘best ever’

The “stars are lining up” for the 49th Annual Detroit Camper & RV Show to be one of the best ever, organizers said.

Sponsored by the Michigan Association of Recreation Vehicles and Campgrounds (MARVAC), the Detroit Camper & RV Show is Feb. 4-8 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Mich. (located on Grand River, between Novi Road and Beck Road).

“If our show can be anywhere near the success of the shows in Cleveland, Tampa and elsewhere, we anticipate one of our best shows ever,” said Bill Sheffer, MARVAC’s director and the show manager. “With gas prices going down, interest rates staying down and the consumer demand for RVs at an all-time high – not to mention the 10,000 to 15,000 Baby Boomers retiring every day so more and more people are interested in the RV lifestyle – the stars are lining up. It was a good 2014 and 2015 is shaping up for us to have another good year.”

More than 300 units from 14 dealers will be on display, plus 52 vendors and their exhibit booths, to take up all 214,000 square feet of available showroom floor. All types of new 2015 recreation vehicles will be there—over 275 units and 50 brands displayed including folding campers, motor homes, travel trailers, truck campers, fifth wheel travel trailers and toy haulers, ranging in price from $6,995 to more than $400,000. 

Two new RVs will be at the Detroit show for the first time – the Cricket, a space-age looking trailer built by Taxa Inc., a Houston-based company formed by a NASA design engineer, and high-end Entegra Coach Class A’s, including the Aspire, Anthem and flagship Cornerstone brands. The Entegra motorhomes, a division of Jayco Inc., will be brought to the Detroit show by TerryTown RV Superstore in Grand Rapids, Mich. The Cricket is being brought by Westland Camping Center in Westland, Mich.

In addition, booths featuring parts and accessories, campground information, on-site RV financing and RV rentals make this the complete RV show experience.
