We went to one of the first RV shows of the year in Denver. We had a good time just being out and saw a few interesting things, but I don't know that I can give it a recommendation.
The big disappointment was that Windish RV only brought two '04 Airstreams, a 19' Bambi and a 25' Safari SS. That was it. Their sales personel were not up to speed on Airstreams either, but the Regional Sales Rep was there and I enjoyed talking to him. Windish says they simply had not yet taken delivery of any other '04 Airstreams, so had only the two to show.
As usual the vendor displays were mediocre and few in number, although there were several items that may be of interest. One is a winter water fill hose by DewPoint, Inc. The owner, Donald Dew, says his heated and insulated hose can keep winter RVer's hooked up to fresh water supply down to -50 degrees. It looked like a quality product.

There was also an inventor there with a new trailer towing mirror that attaches with a suction cup design. See more of it at:
Shelly Wagner demonstrated the Miller's Amazing Magic table. It is well made, good looking and very adaptable to different positions and heights. It is a bit steep at over $300 though IMHO.
Holiday Rambler had an interesting slide out with an inovation I haven't noticed elsewhere - a window that folds out into an atrium or planter style bay window. Clever, don't know how practical.
Probably the one item that gave the show any kind of Wow factor was the new TAB from Europe. They had them in several flavors (colors) and set one up with a VW to make it look like you might tow with a compact front wheel drive. Perhaps you can but the set up was fake - there was no hitch on the VW. The TAB appears to be very well made, but isn't fully self-contained and is kind of a tear drop that didn't quite grow up to be a travel trailer. Still, if you are under five feet eight inches in height you might be comfortable in it. Otherwise, you can't stand up straight in it. These are pricy at around $14,000.
There was another little camper that was truer to the traditional tear drop design, but on steroids. The Cassette by R-Vision comes in an off-road version with high road clearance. It is not tall enough to stand up in, but the bed converts to seating. Just as with the old style tear drop the galley is in the back on the outside. The large hatch props up high and provides a sort of patio cover while the cook prepares dinner. The show price was a reasonable $5,995 to $6,995 for the off-road version.
