RV Dealers at Fort Myers Show Hopeful
"We're expecting about the same attendance as last year - about 13,000," said Dan Wylie, Bradenton-based owner of the Dream RV dealership and president of Region 1 of the Florida RV Trade Association, which includes Southwest Florida.
The show at Lee County Civic Center features hundreds of RVs, including folding camping trailers, gas and diesel motor homes, travel trailers, toy haulers, fifth wheels, park models and van campers.
Prices will be posted on the rigs, with many reflecting manufacturer discounts, Wylie said. On a $200,000 motor home, for example, that could bring a $10,000 discount, he said.
About 100 outdoors and camping vendors also will display and sell their wares. That's a big reason why Phil and Doris Crane will attend sometime this week.
In addition to occasionally purchasing upgraded RV parts, "we buy gadgets to make life easier," said Crane, who's 69 and a former General Motors robotics engineer.
