I know there are two shows in Chicago. One at McCormick and one at Rosemont. I wish I knew which one or if both will have Airstream. With parking and admission, it gets kinda expensive to go to both. And besides, I have no interest in seeing anything else

I'm heading to the Chicago one tomorrow. Both shows have Airstreams. The Rosemont one is smaller and has fewer coaches there.

Hope to see someone there.

R & R RV sales (Airstream dealer) will be at the Rosemont show. I am not sure there will be any Airstream representation at the McCormick show since they don't share (or I couldn't find) the list of exhibitors.

The Rosemont show is small, but there are lots of boats and RVs (mostly SOBs). We bought our Bambi off the floor at the Rosemont show a few years ago. Not sure yet if I'm going to go to either this year.

St. Paul, MN Sportsmen's RV and Boat Show

It is going on right now through Sunday. They have a 25 ft. Safari SE FB on display with a price of about $29,000 ($58,835 MSRP) because there is some extensive hail damage on the backside. Otherwise it is a great floor plan. There is also a 16 ft. special edition Bambi with a strange jungle theme interior and cabinet handles that are miniature Easter Island statues.

Other than that the RV section was mostly white box trailers and 5th wheelers and a lot of them were toy carriers. There were two Class A motorhomes and a few C and B motorhomes. Boats were fishing boats and pontoons. The bigger RV show is next month in Minneapolis.

Well back from McCormick place. Don't waist your time unless you are into boats in a big way. Lots of monster motorhomes too. 5 camping places.
AS count;
1 custom Skydeck,
1 16 CCD Bambi,
1 23 Safari
1 28 Classic closed due to being sold. Can get in if you ask I think.
1 Westfalla.

The Rosemont show is mor for camping and RV type stuff. I guess I should look at the title of the show closer. Boating, outdoor and RV show.....

On a good note, there will be a AS dealer about 20 min from my place here in about 2 months.
