We went to the show hoping to find quality RV accessories. But no luck. Instead of quality RV accessories, they had vinyl siding, Ginsu knives and carnival stuff. $10 to park and $20 to see the show and we left wanting to wash our hands. We love our Airstream.
We went for the same reason and were disappointed that there were not any rv accessory vendors there. The Airstreams were great to see there and my Mother has a Born Free so she was able to talk to their rep about some upgrades. I always like to see the upgrades AS has made since our 06 Bambi. There was a lot of junk at the show but a few nice giant monsters as well. My favorite comment at AS was a lady complaining how much more Airstreams cost for being so small and they didn't even have a slide out or fireplace! Lots of people just don't see quality.
