According to the RV Industry Association, ownership of RV motorhomes and campervans has increased 76% since 2012. With this kind of popularity increase, there are more people than ever hitting the road making their way to national parks, campgrounds, and anywhere else that roads go across the U.S.
This translates into some serious advancements for the next line of RVs produced this decade and next, something that savvy RVers can find at RV trade shows like the 2019 Chicago Boat, RV and Sail Show. The show, running for four days starting January 9th, is set to have more than 600 booths.
