If you’re in the market for a recreational vehicle, look no further than the 42nd annual Central New York RV Show this March 1-4 at the New York State Fairgrounds.
“It’s a great place to come if you’re interested in an RV, whether you’re just starting to look or if you’re seriously looking at buying one,” said Paul Oot, owner of Seven-O’s RV Way in Cicero, one of the participating dealers. “Everything is indoors. There’s a huge variety of models in every price range. There are also great pricing and great interest rates – through all the banks at the show.”
Sponsored by Nationwide Insurance, the RV Dealers Association of Syracuse and the Campground Owners of New York, the show, which takes place from 12 to 9 p.m. Thursday March 1, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, March 2 and Saturday, March 3, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, March 4, will occupy three buildings at the Fairgrounds: the Americraft Center of Progress, the Toyota Exhibit Center and the Horticultural Building. Oot said one building will have only closeouts and pre-owned RVs .
“There’s a good variety,” Oot said. “It’s not just new.”
In addition to the seven dealers selling new and pre-owned models as well as some parts and accessories, there will be booths from area campgrounds and other businesses that support the RVing industry. You can also see camping demonstrations and get information on resorts and other destinations.
