You’ve Got Places to Be Pennsylvania’s RV destinations you don’t want to miss.

T

he Keystone State is home to some of the most spectacular woodland areas in the nation. The Appalachian Trail, the Pocono Mountains, Lake Erie and a wealth of state-protected game lands draw thousands of RVers to Pennsylvania annually. However, not all RVs spend their time parked under evergreen trees. So where else are these captains of the road dropping anchor?

Adamstown

Pocono International Raceway

Adamstown, located in Lancaster County’s Pennsylvania Dutch Country, is known as America’s Antique Capital. Since the 1960s, antique dealers and collectors have been drawn to this quaint town when the antiquing bug has bitten. The entire town transforms into a huge antique mall during the Spring, Summer and Fall Extravaganzas. With year-round shopping opportunities and more than 20 area campgrounds within a 30-minute drive, it’s no wonder so many RV adventures wind through Adamstown.

Opened in 1968, Pocono International Raceway has long been recognized as one of NASCAR’s most competitive speedways. Pocono’s unique 2.5mile track features three turns, each with its own degree of banking, and three straightaways. The raceway welcomes RVers by providing two separate RV parking areas for weekend races. The popular in-field area gives RVers the opportunity to watch an entire weekend of racing trackside, from the comfort of their home away from home. The outer RV park, located outside turn three, features weekend parking for RVers with the option of towing in a second vehicle. Surrounded by some of the most scenic woodland in the state, Pocono International Raceway is another glorious RV attraction in Pennsylvania. NASCAR Sprint Cup Racing Series events are scheduled for June 7 and August 2 in 2009.

Antiquing Extravaganzas for 2009

Pine Creek Gorge Pine Creek Gorge is located in Leonard Harrison State Park in northeast Pennsylvania. The depth of the gorge, cut straight down nearly 1,400 feet by Pine Creek, earned it the nickname “Pennsylvania’s Grand Canyon.” This state-protected watershed is also home to a 100-year-old secondary hardwood forest. With its abundant hiking trails and natural cover, Pine Creek Gorge is a great camping destination for RVers in Pennsylvania.

The entire community of Adamstown takes part in the seasonal extravaganzas. During extravaganzas, dealers set up outside and extended hours are implemented by local antique businesses. The scheduled extravaganzas for 2009 are:

Spring Extravaganza: April 16-19, 2009

Summer Extravaganza: June 25-28, 2009

Fall Extravaganza: September 23-27, 2009

Bald Eagle State Park Bald Eagle State Park, a 5,900-acre state-protected woodland, lies in the broad Bald Eagle Valley in Pennsylvania. Two geological provinces create Bald Eagle’s scenic beauty. The Allegheny Plateau to the north and west holds smooth, undulating uplands; the Ridge and Valley Province to the south and east contains numerous long, narrow mountain ridges separated by valleys. With a wealth of protected wildlife, hiking trails and waterways, Bald Eagle State Park is a “camper’s campsite.” The park is a phenomenal destination for RVers looking to truly get away from it all.

The Heart of the System The LP pressure regulator is the “heart” of the LP system. The LP container(s), appliances, piping, tubing, hoses and cylinder switching components make up the rest of the system. The pressure regulator is located in the center of the LP system. In order to appreciate the importance of LP system maintenance, one must truly understand the inner workings of the LP pressure regulator. Probably the hardest working single component found on the RV, the task of the regulator is appropriately self-descriptive. The regulator must keep up with fluctuating LP container pressure. Just as the heart delivers blood to the organs, the LP system regulator delivers a smooth, even flow of LP vapor to each LP appliance. The regulator is running whenever the main LP valve is open. If the heart skips a beat, internal damage to delicate appliance components could result.

Breathing is Key The LP regulator must be able to “breathe” as the diaphragm expands and contracts inside the regulator body. When fuel enters, the diaphragm expands into an upper chamber. All the upper chambers are exposed to the outside atmosphere through a vent in each stage. The vents give the air an escape route when the upper diaphragm flexes. If air is not expelled, the diaphragm will not move. The vents in each stage must be kept clean and free from moisture, dirt, mud, snow or any other type of muck that could stop the ventilation process. Typically, the first stage vent is a tiny hole in the regulator housing (see photo). It doesn’t take much to plug the pin-sized hole. The drip vent portion on the second stage is also critical for proper operation and must be kept clean. In fact, it is federally mandated that the vent portion of the second stage always be positioned downward and within

All RVers should focus on keeping their LP system in good working order. Regular maintenance is something no vehicle should go without, but the importance of maintaining the LP system is absolutely crucial. Why is failure of the LP system different than a drive train component failure or a generator problem on your RV? Without LP you cannot stay warm, heat your water, cook your meals or keep the contents of your refrigerator cold. LP system problems chip away at your ability to be “self-contained” during RV adventures. Just try starting your LP generator without it. Any engine problem that keeps your RV from moving is troublesome, but consider this: The worst case scenario of a transmission or engine malfunction is loss of time and money. An LP system failure, on the other hand, means multiple components inside your RV will cease to function. Without LP your fully equipped RV is basically a really big van. All LP-burning appliances require regular checkups. Whether attributed to overuse, abuse or lack

of attention, the LP system sustains more wear and tear than other RV operating systems. You can spend lots of money on costly emergency repairs when a component fails, or you can put a little preventive maintenance into play.


45 degrees of vertical. This position minimizes the possibility of any obstruction collecting directly on the vent screen. When replacement regulators are purchased, be sure the vent configuration is correct for your application. Always keep a plastic cover on your regulator. If the cover is lost or damaged, pick up another one during your next service center visit. This is the single most-effective method of protecting your LP regulator vents from blockage.

Let the Doc Handle It Now you have an idea of what goes on inside the regulator, so when can you turn the adjustment screw on the regulator to see the difference in the burner flames? Never, that’s when. Major rule number one: Never attempt to adjust the LP regulator without proper training or without the proper testing equipment on hand. Major rule number two: Never compromise safety factors. Like electricity and natural gas,

“Without liquefied petroleum your fully equipped RV is basically a really big van.” liquefied propane must be respected. In order to be respected, it must be understood. If you want to service your LP system yourself, you will need the proper education. Here’s what you can do without professional training to avoid any potential LP system failures. First and foremost, have the regulator adjusted by an expert at least once a

year. This technical step is an easy addition to the vehicle inspection or any other regular service appointment. Second, have your system checked for leaks as often as possible. How often? At the very least, once at the start of your camping season and again any time the LP system is “opened.” The LP system is considered open when a fitting is loosened or an appliance is removed. A chemical called ethyl mercaptan is injected into the odorless propane during the distilling process so you can smell leaks. If you ever smell the presence of this odorant, immediately shut off the LP supply and call your local service shop to schedule an appointment. If you suspect a leak anywhere in the LP system, be extremely cautious. Let a professional locate and fix potential leaks.

Your First-Aid Kit Carry a spare regulator in your RV at all times. Replacement regulators are pre-set at the factory to approximately 11 water column inches. No adjustments will be necessary until after your trip. And the good news is it cannot be installed incorrectly. The inlet and outlet are different sizes. Simply use the proper LP approved thread sealant and install the fittings at each end just as they appear on your current LP regulator. The differing sizes of the inlet and outlet serve as an infallible installation guide. Having that spare regulator in your spare parts kit will ensure you will not be left out in the cold or without hot water. Consider taking a detailed course on the LP system and appliances. Learning about the LP system will help you identify minor problems before they become major repairs. If you’d like to take an online training course regarding the LP system in your RV, please visit: http:// www.rvdoctor.com/training.cfm. Remember: RVing is more than a hobby, it’s a lifestyle!

The Prescription The LP regulator feeds your appliances a nice, healthy flow of fuel. Here are the steps you can take to make sure the LP regulator continues to function properly:

r Keep it clean. r Keep it out of the weather whenever possible. r Check the plastic cover. r Have it set to the correct operating pressure at least once a year. r Be sure the vents are pointed down. r Leak test the complete system as often as possible. r Have the LP-run appliances cleaned and checked annually.

n e e r G e h t in g n RVi The five steps to keep your RV trips environmentally conscious. By Angelique H. Caffrey

T

he traditional view of recreational vehicles (RVs) as gas-guzzling behemoths is starting to become an antiquated reality. As more and more RV enthusiasts actively seek ways to decrease their spending and lessen their carbon footprint, manufacturers have responded with “green,” money-saving products and practical motorhome solutions.

This isn’t simply anecdotal, reports back up the trend toward greener RVing. According to a survey of their members conducted and distributed by the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA): • 76% of members minimized their use of air conditioning • 74% of members conserve light use in their RVs • 15% of members use solar panels on their RVs

People around the nation are beginning to embrace the concept of RVing as an economical, energy-


saving means of travel and leisure. International consulting firm PKF Consulting recently suggested that the “typical RV family vacations are on average 27 percent to 61 percent less expensive than other types of vacations studied.” Of course, not all RVs are ecofriendly, meaning travelers need to take the first step toward becoming greener. The next time you’re planning an RV excursion across town or cross country, take these environmentally mindful ideas and actions into consideration.

1. Drive Green Want to get better gas mileage? It’s not as hard as you might think. The same practices that apply to your automobile can be applied to your RV. First, traveling at or slightly below the posted speed limit is a practical and simple way to maximize your fuel consumption, as is regularly using cruise control. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) notes that if you switch from 65 miles per hour to 55 miles per hour, you could save 10 percent to 15 percent on fuel costs. Even if you only save a few gallons of fuel per trip, it translates into money in your pocket, less wear-and-tear on your RV and fewer toxic emissions released into the atmosphere. Next, turn off your RV when it’s parked and avoid “idling.” Idling isn’t just a waste of energy reserves; it creates both auditory and olfactory nuisances. Rather than allowing your RV to sit for hours when you’re not planning to go anywhere, turn the engine off.

This movement among RV manufacturers proved so strong that by 2008 Roaming Times (a Web site devoted to all things RV) announced the Green RV of the Year Award winner — The Livin’ Lite Quicksilver Automotive Camper. As a consumer, you can support the growing inclination toward manufacturing environmentally friendly RVs by purchasing or renting motorhomes or pop-ups from green suppliers and dealers. If that’s not an option, at least buy a pre-owned (but still efficient) RV so it doesn’t land in a vehicle graveyard before its time. Lastly, if you’re handy (or you know someone who is), you may want to consider buying a school bus or other large vehicle and retrofitting it for RV usage.

3. Play Green When you’re RVing, try to spend as much time on natural, earth-friendly activities as you can. Choose campgrounds and parks that offer activities conducive to a green lifestyle, such as lake swimming, hiking, fishing and biking. These allow you to enjoy your surroundings without taking a toll on the environment. Of course, it’s not always feasible to spend every day in your RV when you’re on vacation, but that doesn’t mean you can’t continue to implement green practices. If you plan to sightsee beyond the boundaries of your campsite, ask other RVing individuals and families if they’d like to go with you. By carpooling with your new friends, you’ll save on gas and build special relationships and memories that will last forever.

2. Buy Green

4. Think Green

In early 2007, Coachmen Industries and Atlas Trailer Coach Products announced that they were going to work with National Source Energy Systems on future RV models. Their collective goal was to gravitate toward the use of solar power and biodiesel fuel to make and operate RVs and for RV product components and amenities. Later in the year, Pilgrim International Lamination followed suit when the company unveiled the first all-composite RV during an annual show in Kentucky.

Purchasing necessities and other items for your RV? Be conscientious about what materials are used in the products, as well as where and how the products are made. Almost anything can be manufactured using green methods. Blankets, paper products, dishes and plates, cleaning supplies — the list is virtually endless. Plus, there’s no reason to stop recycling cans, glass and plastic just because you’re away from home. You can also conserve water (Do you really need a daily shower when

you’re in the middle of the woods?) and snuggle under warm blankets instead of turning on the heat on cool autumn and spring nights. If you’re unsure as to the best green decisions, head to the Internet for answers. Many Web sites and online publications are dedicated to helping you make environmentally wise choices. That way, you can educate yourself before spending by examining the variety of green products online.

Fast Facts

Here are some steps you can take before, during and after your RV trip to be as green as possible: Figure out what campground you would like to stay in before you leave. Gas is wasted when you’re driving around looking for the right spot. Take “Navy” showers and have your children do the same. Turn the water on and then off to soap up before turning the water back on for the rinse.

5. Vacation Green Rather than driving thousands of miles in your RV, why not spend your next weekend or long getaway closer to home? There’s no hard and fast rule that says a relaxing, “away-fromit-all” retreat can’t take place at the campground that’s nearest to your house. And when you play tourist in your own community, you often discover recreational gems you didn’t realize existed. You can also look for campgrounds that support a greener lifestyle. Some may have instituted green energy sources or provide a significant amount of organic food in their stores. By patronizing them, you’ll be helping them thrive. Even if you choose to visit a camping spot two hours away instead of four, you’ll be acting with eco-responsibility. You’ll also be able to spend less time on the highway and more time with your traveling companions. And isn’t that what RVing is all about in the first place?

Observe all campground rules to the letter. Obviously you should use designated waste removal areas for your septic tank. It’s the little rules that get pushed by the wayside. For example, don’t tie leashes or clotheslines to trees. This will damage the tree bark. Acknowledge and observe fire safety rules. Fire regulations change daily at some campgrounds based on dry conditions or wind velocity. Obey all leash laws. Campgrounds seem like a great place to let your dog(s) run free. But those woods are occupied by plenty of free-roaming wildlife that won’t be excited about a new addition to their neighborhood. Find the appropriate recycle bins right away. Avoid burning your trash. Wash and dry fruits and vegetables at home and wrap the produce in paper towels for the trip. Information provided by thegreenparent.blogspot.com.

RV vacations and getaways have become an attractive, cost-effective way for families and friends to relax in comfort while enjoying their natural surroundings. The state of Pennsylvania is the fourth-largest RV producing state in the U.S. and features the fourth-largest number of RV campsites. Therefore, it’s no surprise that Pennsylvania continuously attracts travelers with motorhomes, conversion vans and travel trailers. Without a doubt, the Keystone State is proud to be a beacon to those adventurers looking for a vacation that’s extraordinary. Pennsylvania’s motto is “Virtue, Liberty and Independence” — the perfect way to describe the RV way of life. ›››

››› If you’re wondering what makes RVing in the Keystone State so appealing, below are five great reasons to make the commonwealth your next destination.

1. The Camaraderie There’s an intrinsic feeling of camaraderie among RV enthusiasts. “I love the community feeling at every campground we visit,” says Bruce Schulter of Schnecksville, Pa. “It’s like stepping into the ‘50s. Not that there’s a lack of technology or convenience on any level, mostly because people act like you see them acting in movies from the ‘50s. People are very nice, very cordial. When you pull in next to someone that is already set up, you can bank on them coming over to introduce themselves.” Not only do RV travelers tend to gravitate toward one another, turning campgrounds into “homes away from home,” but they are also quick to lend a helping hand. Bruce Heasley, who with his wife, Ann, owns Holiday Pines Campground in Loganton, Pa., notes that the instant bonding among RVing groups can be heartwarming and occasionally humorous. “If somebody comes in with a new-to-them camper, there’s usually a crowd to help them,” he says with a chuckle. “If somebody pops a hood up, instantly there are six or seven guys around.” Heasley adds, “At a motel or hotel, you go and sit there by yourself. Here, people walk around and chat with each other.”

2. The Accommodations With almost 400 privately owned campgrounds and approximately 80 state-owned public parks in Pennsylvania, not to mention diverse terrain and geography, the state absolutely has something for every RVing group. Whether your tastes run toward hiking, biking, fishing, auto shows, historical locales,

hunting, skiing or rock climbing, you can be certain that you’ll find a place to indulge your interests. Jason Vaughn, member of the Pennsylvania Recreational Vehicle and Camping Association (PRVCA) and owner of Mountain Vista Campground in East Stroudsburg, Pa., enjoys introducing campers to the state’s wide range of camping

environments. “Pennsylvania has a huge variety,” he says. “Little campgrounds, huge campgrounds, mega campgrounds… Lakefront, riverfront, campgrounds in the middle of nowhere and campgrounds in the middle of the action… All the parks have their own little niches, [so campers] have a lot of opportunities.”


3. Tailgating Pennsylvania hosts a large number of sporting events, concerts and festivals on an annual basis. The one thing all those events have in common is the parking lot. Parking-lot culture at large events is very different than your average campground. Yet RVs can be the perfect tailgating tool. “Our tailgating experience totally changed when we bought our first family RV,” says Deb Niess of Philadelphia, Pa. “We have season tickets for the Eagles and the Phillies. Before we bought the RV we tailgated, but now we host tailgate parties. The days of burgers and chips are long behind us. Now we have steak and baked potatoes. Forget about one charcoal grill outside; we have a full kitchen inside our RV.”

4. The Climate and Topography

©RVIA.org

Thanks to its latitude and longitude, Pennsylvania’s approximately 46,000 square miles provide guests and residents with highly defined seasons. Frosty winters give way to warm, green springs; sunny summers flow into crisp, color-splashed autumns. Though some campgrounds

are closed to RV traffic during the colder months, others are open year-round, giving travelers a taste of Mother Nature 365 days a year. Pennsylvania has more than 50 natural and 2,500 man-made lakes, as well as 45,000 miles of rivers and streams; it’s also home to more than 2 million acres of state-owned forests. The Appalachian Mountains run through the state’s center, making access to the famed Appalachian National Scenic Trail hiking path an option for visitors. “RVs are perfect for day hiking the Appalachians,” says Adam Weslake of Crested Butte, Colo. “Most of the campsites on the Appalachian are illegal to use for day camping.” Parking your RV at a local campground will serve as the prefect fix for camping issues during day hikes.

When you RV throughout the state, you’ll find thousands of opportunities to learn more about our nation’s heritage. From the caverns that were used by Native Americans to the Amish homesteads anchoring villages and towns (and still in use today), taking an RV trip through Pennsylvania is like embarking on an incredible journey into the past. “Gettysburg — that’s the reason I RV into this state every year, says Tim Murphy of Youngstown, Ohio. “As an RVer first and a teacher second, I find the Gettysburg area to be an amazing destination. There are very few areas of our country that combine both spectacular outdoor activities and living history the way Gettysburg does.” Finally, for those RVers who need (or want) to touch base with the office or stay connected to loved ones, the majority of privately owned campgrounds have moved toward WIFI access, allowing the best of all worlds for those not willing to leave their laptops behind. “We’re on our third WIFI network here. We have a phenomenal system,” says Vaughn.

5. The Rich History of the State As one of the original 13 colonies, Pennsylvania has been an integral part of American history. Not only did George Washington “sleep here,” he also crossed the Delaware River and camped in Valley Forge during the Revolutionary War.

The Road Ahead New technology is changing the RV experience in ways you’d never imagine.

By Keith Greenberg

S

econds after a new product is introduced to the marketplace people are working to improve it. Twenty years ago, children sat side by side watching a digital ball bounce from one side of their screen to the other while playing Pong. Now, children of the same age are playing Xbox 360 online with peers in Beijing, China. Advances in technology have redefined not only specific products, but the entire marketplace. With the current advances being applied to the automotive industry, more specifically the RV industry, consumers will see major upgrades to the RVs they know and love. The road ahead is wide open.

The future of the RV industry lies in upgrades to all systems of the RV. Fuel, septic, power, driving system and vehicle size are all categories that will be affected, according to RVtravel.com. The days of huge, bus-sized RVs that get about eight miles to the gallon and need an exterior electrical source will soon be behind us.

Downsizing

according to rversonline.org. You are moving to a much higher quality of vehicle. In most cases, gasoline-operated RV chassis are truck chassis modified for RV use, but many diesels are built from bus chassis. Bus chassis have better gross vehicle weight ratings (GVWR), air brakes, air ride suspension systems, larger transmissions, rear-mounted diesel engines and more. They handle better, ride better, get better mileage and cost more. Mike Heffron of Monroeville, Pa. has driven both gas and diesel RVs and favors the diesel as the ride for his family. “The difference in the price at the pump is nothing to get excited about,” says Heffron. “It shouldn’t be a deal-breaker, especially when you factor in the mileage differences be-

The only drawback to these portable panels is a potential lack of sunlight. The solution, according to White, is in the mobility of the panels. They are adjustable when roof mounted and completely mobile on the ground. If you park your RV in the shade, you can set up your solar panels in the sun and still conserve energy without sacrificing comfort.

The Annual

Pennsylvania

RV and Camping Show The biggest RV and camping show in the country delivers once again.

E

very year, the Pennsylvania Recreational Vehicle and Camping Association (PRVCA) hosts the biggest RV and camping show in the nation: the Pennsylvania RV and Camping Show. Patrons, dealers and industry professionals descend on the Hersheypark Entertainment ComplexGiant Center for this epic event. And for yet another year the Pennsylvania RV and Camping Show attracted superior numbers of attendees. The Pennsylvania RV and Camping Show serves two functions at its core. It is both an educational tool for manufacturers, dealers and consumers and a shopping opportunity for everyone. The show is the debut of new products and enables attendees to be the first people in the nation to see the latest the RV industry has to offer.

Let the Show Begin The first few days of the show are the dealer days. It is a time for manufacturers and other industry professionals to view the show before it is open to the public. During dealer days, the show functions primarily as it does when it is open to the public, with a few added goodies. But everything kicks into high gear during the public days, when the crowds really start to pour in. From the hills across the street from the Giant Center, the Pennsylvania RV and Camping Show is a sight to behold. The parking lot is an ocean of RVs. Like the image inside two opposing mirrors, the exhibits seem to go on forever. “I’m a first timer,” says Michelle Anderson of Pittsburgh, Pa. “My husband and his brother came here last year, and I saw the pictures they took. I’m not really that much of an outdoorsy person, but this show is incredible. I don’t think it matters if you’re into RVs or not, as weird as that sounds. This show is something you’ve got to see to believe.” Anderson was not the only attendee to be awestruck by the sheer size of the show. “My family tried to come last year, but my son came down with the flu,” says Harold Butler of Toms River, N.J. “We have an RV show that happens near our house in Jersey. I came here expecting to see something similar. I knew the minute we came over the hill on [Route] 39 that I was wrong. This show is three to four times the size of the one near us. I’m glad we waited to bring our son.” Patrons and professionals alike expected the attendance to be off and the sales down at this year’s show, but that was not the case. PRVCA figures show that, in almost every category, things improved from last year. “There’s no question, the RV market is a bit off,” says Rhone. “But the show was a huge success. It proves that even when times are tough people need their leisure time.” Representatives from the PRVCA were also pleasantly surprised by the turnout and subsequent financial figures. “Our numbers were good in comparison to last year,” says Heather Leach, marketing and education director of the PRVCA. “Dealers and manufacturers were on track to show improved numbers, as well.” ›››

Pennsylvania RV and Camping show receives “welcome mat award” from the Good Sam Club By Heather Leach

The Pennsylvania RV and Camping Show and the Pennsylvania Recreational Vehicle and Camping Association (PRVCA) have been awarded the Welcome Mat Award from the Good Sam Club for hosting the “Most RV Friendly RV Show.” The Good Sam Club, the world’s largest membership organization of RV owners, introduced their Welcome Mat Awards to recognize businesses that successfully accommodate RVs and offer award-winning service to a growing number of RV owners. Nearly one million RV owners were eligible to vote for businesses and events that go out of the way to meet the needs of RV owners.

According to all accounts, this year’s show went off without a hitch. “I was there for the entire show, from set up to tear down. This year’s show went more smoothly than ever before,” says Dan Saltzgiver, show committee chair and co-owner of Reichart’s Camping Center. “Everyone involved in the show preparation did their jobs and it showed.” Show attendees agreed with Saltzgiver’s feedback. “I found out about this show last year about two weeks after it ended. I’ve been planning on attending ever since,” says Daniel Taylor of Philipsburg, N.J. “I was completely blown away by the entire event. My whole family was, really. You

7-year-old from Buffalo, N.Y., was a big fan of the show, even if the difference between trucks and RVs slightly eluded him. “I love coming to see all the trucks and campers,” says Spike. “My dad brings me and my mom here every year and I have fun. You can go inside the trucks and see some of the engines, too. My sister Emily likes the big trucks, too. It’s much more fun than school is, and the food is way better. The hot dog buns aren’t soggy at all.”

First Impressions Five first-time attendees shared their impressions of the largest RV show in the country:

“I was truly shocked by the size of it all. The Web site doesn’t do it justice.” – Terrence Demao, Louisville, Ky.

“We’ve been shopping for an RV for three summers now. I got more information in two days here than two years of looking at individual dealerships.” – Scott Hauser, Pittsburgh, Pa.

“It’s perfect for us. When the kids get bored, we take a ride down to check out all the Hershey attractions. They couldn’t have picked a better venue.” – Mia Avery and her two sons, Avi and Yakov, Harrisonburg, Va.

“It’s like I died and went to RV heaven. I wasn’t expecting it to be this big. Next year, we’re planning on multiple days at the show and in Hershey.” – Luis Hothereo, Allentown, Pa.

“I like going inside the trucks [RVs]. Everything is new and there are lots of neat things to see and eat.” – Rebecca Jakoviks, age 7, Stamford, Conn.


Attractions Whether you are a first-time RVer or a 10-year veteran of the RV world, there is something at the show for you. Along with showcasing new models and products, the show offers an extensive array of seminars on all things RV. Maintaining, insuring and purchasing RVs are just a few of the topics covered. Some less obvious topics are covered, as well. Want to know what to do with your mail when you spend the summer RVing? How should you winterize your RV during the colder months? You’ll find the answers you’re looking for at the Pennsylvania RV and Camping Show.

Regular seminar topics include: • How to Buy an RV: Buying tips and ideas for handling the salesperson • RV Adventure Videos: Hourly videos showcasing RV destinations all over the country • RV Doctor Gary Bunzer: Shares his maintenance tips to keep your RV running in tip-top shape • Full-Time and Extended RV Travel: Everything you need to know before you start life on the road in your RV • Tips for Choosing an RV: What to look for in an RV to suit your needs Other seminars are presented by industry professionals such as the RV Safety Education Foundation, which provides information on everything from tire safety to matching your truck and trailer. Other seminars are presented by the show’s exhibitors to inform attendees about everything from RV insurance to the

latest gadgets sure to make your RVing experience a hassle free adventure. “The information they present is the draw for me,” says Brad Shelley of Hershey, Pa. “I’m new to the RV life, and I got information on subjects I didn’t realize I needed. There are chassis enhancements available for our RV that I didn’t realize existed until five minutes ago.”

A Fan Favorite The Pennsylvania RV and Camping Show continues to be a success and draws in more people year after year. “It just keeps getting better, says Tony Dimarco of Fleming, Pa. “I’ve been here with my family every year for the last five years. It’s a great way for me to stay on top of the camping industry. My job caters to mostly outdoorsmen. Coming to the show gives me a jump on what to stock for the upcoming camping season. It amazes me how many new things they add every year.” The excitement generated by this event is a true testament to everyone involved in the planning and execution. “This is my fourth year, and it’s the best so far,” says Cheryl Latham of Catasauqua. “We start making our summer travel plans for next year’s vacation on the road to this year’s RV show. We plan it so that we’re in Hershey before the show starts, and we usually spend two days there. Next year we’ll be in the new RV we bought this year.” The PRVCA and the show committee are dedicated to maintaining the Pennsylvania RV and Camping Show’s level of excellence every year. If crowd reaction from one show to the next is any indication, the goal has been reached.
