Showed up around 1/2 hour after opening, SAT am ---uhhh looks like turnout mighty strong ---> Line to get in


Fiver with front upper area, Living Room setup dual slides, way open cool area:



Different OUT-DOORsy wood cabin look in this FIRESIDE Travel Trailer:


Outdoor kitchen, with sivel TV, for outside watching or back in bunk area of trailer, if inside.

A-Frames, pretty cool, if you have small tow vehicle, even have a canopy:



This Travel Trailer, had a mirror, with LED lights in the roof.....kind of gave the Strip Bar feel, though?*!?*!? don't tell DW:



Lots of big Fivers, decked out:




Lots of BIG Toy-Haulers:



A Chevy 3500 with little sleeping quarter, DW actually liked this one:



This Dealer was keeping talley, not bad 7 units so far--


R-Pod, cuteness --->



Big crowds, lots of trailers & Fivers, only around 6 Class C's, maybe 8 Class A's, lots of toy-hauler options, couple truck campers, accessorey sales not too much,

Pocket pets being marketed and sold had to pull wife away, reminding her one of our dogs would propaly eat a pocket pet (Sugar Glider?!?!).

Sales fibs, I heard or over-heard (Hi-Low Trailer rep saying it takes 2 minutes to setup, once you know how. Jayco no longer offers 2 year warranty, competitor stating. Competition so high now, that all the trailers pretty much great quality.)

Unique use of LED Lighting on many units, starting to pop up. Corss-Roads had small thin LED lighting, built into the canopy, pretty sharp.

This show, sold units, left open for 1,000's to go through. Did see some stuff getting jacked up!*!*!* One dealer giving out yard-sticks, which kids were just wacking around in units.

Nothing major for us to make a change, still fun checking them all out!

Get out and make adventures!

Atlanta show this year was a bust for us. Lots of nice campers to look at, very few Class A, and only two gassers. We just bought our new to us mh a few months ago, and was looking to pick up some accessories and ideas.

Five years ago there were many many vendors selling about anything you needed, but only one this year, and their display was small. If I wanted to set in on a campground membership sales pitch, a fancy set of knives, or a new pair of shoes, I'd a been in luck.

We went on Friday PM, found the show to be uneventful, one observation was that the non RV venders were a very strange mix, several we're sticks & brick related, a bedding company that didn't carry sheets for RV's, the little critters?

I fairness though, we went to the Florida Supershow in Tampa last week... Wow, that was quite a spectacle, it's HUGE!!!
