California RV Show Still Wows Visitors

FONTANA, California –  Sept, 3, 2019 – In many respects, the California RV Show looks younger today than it did 67 years ago when it began.  Some would say it’s the newest streamlined designs, or the innovations and technology like solar power that modern RVs on display at the show are using. Or that RVing is still a fun and cost effective way for the entire family to enjoy the great outdoors.


Certainly the camping lifestyle has no age limit. From young couples and growing families to mature campers and folks who have traded their brick and mortar home for a home-on-wheels giving them the opportunity to see the many sights the USA offers. RVers want to explore the country with freedom and to park in clean and safe campgrounds.  Sixty-seven years later, RVing is still the best way to do that.


This year, the 67th annual California RV Show, now for the first time at Fontana’s Auto Club Speedway, showcases a wide range of RVs, ranging from mini towable trailers to pop-up trailers, to 35 plus feet long travel trailers and 5th wheelers that are sure to excite those looking for something to tow with their SUV or truck. For people who enjoy motorhomes, there are hundreds to choose from — Class B, Class C and the luxury Class A options. If attendees are not sure which motorhome fits their style, they can choose to take a test drive in one or more of 125 new motorhomes that will be at the show.


“This is the only show on the West Coast sponsored by RV manufacturers that has more than 1,000 new 2020 models on display,” said Tom Gaither, California RVIA Show Director.  “And it’s the only time consumers can meet the manufacturers, get advice on the different RVs on display, and make a great deal with one of the 14 dealerships we will have there.”


The show covers over one million square feet of displays and includes a large exhibitor tent featuring countless accessories and aftermarket products to personalize RVs, plus 50 informative seminars on a variety of RV-related subjects. Convenient free parking and easy access to the show is assured. There will be plenty of food and beverage options for hungry show goers, and entertainment for everyone from free Ferris wheel rides, to meet and greet celebrities.


The show runs from Oct. 4 -13, 2019. Show hours are 10AM until 6PM daily. Adult admission is $15; kids 17 and under are free. Only active military personnel are free with ID. RV Parking is available. Save $2 by purchasing tickets online at
