Are you planning to attend the Houston RV Show? Whether you’re a resident of Houston, Texas, or just visiting from out of town, there are several things you should know before heading to the show scheduled for February 8–11.
Location and Admission
The Houston RV Show has been a tradition since 1965 and serves as the largest RV show in Texas. The event is located at NRG Park, and it will feature camping and RV dealers from all over the state, as well as many other vendors from around the country.
Children ages 6 to 12 are allowed in with a ticket costing $5, and adult tickets cost $15. You can purchase tickets at the entrance box office of the RV show or online via Ticketmaster. Make sure to purchase your tickets in advance if you’re getting them online as tickets won’t be available for four hours prior to the show. Also, if you visit houstonrvshow.com, print the coupon that lets you buy one adult ticket at the box office and get one free.
What to Expect
At the Houston RV Show, you can find a wide variety of recreational vehicles for sale from hundreds of vendors. This includes everything from camper trailers and pop-up campers to motor homes and fifth-wheelers. Additionally, there will be seminars, demonstrations, competitions, and fun activities for the whole family.
There’s plenty of parking available at the NRG Center, with lots located on both sides of the venue. There’s also a designated RV-only area, so make sure to check that out if you plan on bringing your rig to the show. Additionally, there are several nearby hotels that offer free parking for those who wish to stay close by.
Do Your Research
It’s always a good idea to do your research before going to any RV show. Make sure you know which brands and models are available, as well as their prices. Not every booth will be worth your while, so scan the exhibitor list first. If you’re planning to purchase or rent an RV, consider your budget, your party size, the destinations where you plan to travel, and any other factors you find relevant that will aid in your discussions with exhibitors.
Attending the Houston RV Show is a great way to explore different recreational vehicles, find the one that best fits your needs, and also see the latest trends and gadgets. Being aware of the things to know about the event will help make the most out of your time and money. Bring your patience, sense of adventure, and enthusiasm for a fun-filled experience!
