Campers World RV Show in York, Pa., starts Friday

The 2016 Campers World RV Show will be held at the York Expo Grounds on March 11, 12 & 13. This unique show is in its 38th year and the event promises to be bigger and better than ever with over 130,000 square feet of indoor display space. Thirteen area RV dealers will show off over 180 folding campers, travel trailers, fifth wheels, toy haulers and luxury motor homes.

Also on display will be 50 campgrounds showcasing their facilities and ten vendors offering products to enhance the RVing experience. The York RV Show is the one and only time this spring that all the dealers are together in one place, competing to offer the best pricing and amenities.

“Grab a pencil and a piece of paper before you come,” says Beverly Gruber, Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Campground Owners Association, the show’s manager. “You’ll want to do the math, because RV travel is very affordable.”

Gruber’s enthusiasm is echoed by the RV Industries Association, where a recent study confirms a family of four can spend up to 74 percent less when traveling in an RV. Regardless of the size or make you choose, today’s RV travel experience is more fuel efficient and comfortable than ever before as manufacturers design with convenience in mind, using lighter materials and more streamlined exterior looks.

Reports from RVIA ( and the RV Dealers Association show that nationwide, shipments of RVs are up. “With gas prices being down, more people than ever before are discovering the freedom and flexibility an RV vacation affords, adds Gruber. “Great camping memories are part of almost every family’s history and it’s a great stress-reducer.”
