The Tampa RV Show is a special event for us because it’s the first RV show we attended after hitting the road full time in 2015.
Tampa RV Show – Largest RV Show in Florida
In 2016, we arrived at the fairgrounds in our Class A gas motorhome towing a Jeep Wrangler. Our plan was to check out all the RVs at the show along with the RV gear and gadgets in the vendor areas. This show is where we discovered the Hymer Grand Canyon, now known as the Hymer Aktiv. Little did we know at that time we would be downsizing to a Hymer Aktiv 2.0 for full time RVing.
You can learn more about our journey from a Class A RV to a Class B RV in this post: Full Time RVing in a Class B Camper Van.
Three years later, we are excited to be back at the Tampa RV Show to chat about RVing and van life. If you are headed to the SuperShow, join us at the Hymer booth on Friday 1-4pm and Saturday 12-3pm.
Whether you’re window shopping, looking to upsize or downsize, or something else, the Tampa RV Show is a fun way to spend a day for any RV enthusiast.
To get an idea of what the show is like, below is a recap of the first time we attended the show along with videos. As you’ll see, we both have less hair now and still chuckle when we see videos with Joe’s attempt at growing a beard.
Florida RV SuperShow 2016 Recap
The Florida RV SuperShow has come to a close. We spent three days checking out RVs, products, resorts and everything in between. To say the show is huge would be an understatement. For anyone in the market for a new coach or products, this RV show offers one place to see it all. Not every model and layout was at the show, but there was plenty of inventory to get an idea of the options available. We haven’t looked at any coaches since we bought ours. The opportunity to see new models with a different point of view was one of the highlights for us. Another highlight was all the cool RV products in the supplier halls.
If you missed the show or want to get an idea of what the show is all about, below are three videos we shared of our time at the Florida RV SuperShow. To find an RV Show near you, check out our list of RV Shows in the U.S. and Canada.
