Would you attend an RV show in the next month if it were within an hour drive of you?

It’s RV show season right now, although many that would normally be held have been canceled or postponed due to COVID concerns.

But it appears from the record crowds that attended the Hershey Show (which ends today) that there is a huge interest in attending such shows. We’re not sure as we write this Saturday afternoon if the crowds for the show will set an all-time record, but, if not, it will be very close.

So, what if an RV show were coming up near you in the next month or so? Would you attend? Or not? Or what?

Covid, anti-vaccers, anti-maskers … Still too much and too many of each here in Oregon. As much as I like RV shows, I like breathing better.
If the show venue required vacc proof and masks of everyone during the indoors or in an RV I might reconsider.

Couldn’t agree more! Same here in Canada.

I disagree. We must stop living in fear.

If you cannot or won’t protect yourself then of course you should stay isolated.

Otherwise get back to living and stop worrying about what others do.

Went to Hershey to checkout floor plans and bought a new 5th wheel

We went to Hershey and that is almost 2 hours away. We are relatively healthy and vaccinated, so going to crowded places isn’t much of a concern.

Not unless they required proof of vaccination AND required face masks indoors and out

Want to wait for Covid to lessen its impact and have more people vaccinated.

I would go to a nearby RV show, especially if I knew that RVs we are considering for our next (last?) RV would be at the show.

Why do you care if someone voluntarily wears a mask? We are not afraid of covid but my wife wears a mask because she is being treated for cancer and has no immunity. She is not afraid of things she has been vaccinated for.

Yes! Even if within 3 hours we would go!

I’d consider it, but it really depends on other people being willing to do their part and mask up.

Sorry, I won’t buy into the hype about masks and, if they’re required, I will not go. There is no science behind them and all actual studies show they’re essentially worthless. I can give names of those who followed all the Covid regulations and still died from it.

I see a lot of people want to play it safe. That is perfectly OK.

I see going to an RV show as way less dangerous than going to the supermarket or Doctors Office, so why would I not?

Actually the drive there, and the food are probably more dangerous than the show!

(Apart from the Sokol fellow – watch out for him 😲). Just kidding! I love that guy!

Thats just how I feel but I don’t mind if you feel different. I will truly be disappointed not to have met you.

Depending on spacing and crowd control. So many in at a time and as those leave others come in. With this virus still running around and age I am still very cautious. But it would be nice to see new models and gadgets and gizmos.

Maybe, but not likely. Would be for fun just to check them out. We are happy with our 2002 Newmar Dutchstar. At an age where it wouldn’t even make sense to buy another motorhome. But love to look.

I respect those who don’t want to attend or travel because of Covid. Personal choice. We have done 4 trips since February of 2020 (in Florida when it started happening), 20K miles (2 trips to Florida, 1 to Indianapolis, 1 just roaming around the West. We live in CA). Four events, the largest with 135K people this past May. After all 4, there were no outbreaks. Events were all outside. We plan on going to Florida again in January.

DW is PETRIFIED over the Covid show. She also always says if we can’t buy, why look? And I’m NOT buying.

We are discussing whether or not to put a 5th wheel on our property or a mobile home. It is unrestrictive and can do what we want without driving neighbors or et all nuts. It is out in the middle of no wheresville. Otherwise thinking of doing an RV show in February if it is not cancelled due to some virus that shuts it down. But I think the show will go on.

not likely but not because of the Covid hysteria.

No, not going anywhere where there are large numbers of people who won’t wear a mask because they either are uncaring or just don’t give a darn!!!

The mask will not prevent you from getting Covid-19. The mask will prevent someone who has Covid-19 from passing it to you, but I doubt anyone who has it would be out walking around at an RV show.

Bob p. Why, then, as a nurse of 40 years, did I wear a mask when in contact with patients with airborne illnesses?

Probably to prevent your passing germs or bacteria. A virus passes through a paper mask like it isn’t even there (passed on to me by a nurse in Houston).

They say whether vaxx or not you can still get the *** *** virus from anyone mask or not or social distance or not. Even those plastic screens don’t help. So stay home and let the rest of us live our lives in peace.

Not a true statement. We know mask help reduce the risk. Those not masked should stay at home so those that are can live and move in peace.
