Jack & Niki ask – Guess who’s coming to town?

No, it’s not the jolly old fellow with the long white beard. He came and left last month and is now seen regularly at the hot spots in The Keys with his wife and entourage of small, happy people.

No, it’s the 2018 RV SuperShow setting up at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa!

2018 will Celebrate 33 years of the Florida RV SuperShow. This show is recognized as the greatest RV show in the country. Campers welcome, daily seminars, over 450 vendor booths and more than 1550 RVs covering 26 acres – it is a site to see!

Niki and I try to attend the show each year on Press Day to see what’s new with the RV manufacturers, gadget suppliers, new campgrounds to visit and we’re doing it again this week. We will report back during the Show with pics and some of the new things we discover. This is not just an RV Show – it is an event!

If you are an RVer or have an interest in joining the vast brother and sisterhood of carefree, fun-loving souls roaming our Country’s highways and byways then this is the  time and the place for a serious visit! Find more about the week ahead below.
