Gear up for Summer RVing at Pomona RV & Travel Show

POMONA, CA --- Outdoor recreation and travel enthusiasts can see all the latest accessories and vehicles for camping, fishing, hiking, road trips and off-road activities during the Pomona RV & Travel Show, April 19-22 at Pomona Fairplex.

According to a study conducted by the University of Michigan, the baby boom generation is the leading force behind RV ownership today with more RVs owned by 35 to 54-year-olds than any other age group. Today, one-in-10 vehicle-owning households in that age group have at least one RV. The high rates of RV ownership now extend across a 40-year span from 35 to 75.

Demand for RVs has been at its highest level during the past 25 years and continues to grow. Now the typical RV owner is age 49, married, owns a home and has an annual household income of $68,000.

The show will feature over 20 RV dealers in more than 250,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space filled with the latest models in recreational vehicles including a variety of motor homes, 5th wheels, toy haulers, travel trailers, truck campers, tent trailers, vans, tow vehicles, sports vehicles and RV accessories. Travel ideas for hunting and fishing trips and other vacation destinations will be presented. Several giveaways will be offered throughout the show.

Seminars on recreational vehicles, including purchasing tips, driving safety and new products will be offered daily, along with free fly fishing demonstrations by champion fly
caster Steve White.
