Though we really, really, really want the great bank for the buck of a used pup vs. new... Are RV show deals sometimes a very, very good value? Or are they just a somewhat less poor investment vs. buying a few years or more old? My only reason to even consider buying a new (or prev. year unsold) at a show price sale would be if my odds were very slim to find our criteria in a used/good condition/ decent price. We'd want a 12' box, w/ slide out, w/o shower/toilet (open to toilet only), w/o front storage (because limited to 16'-17' tongue to spare for storage). Have you bought from an RV show before? Why and what was your experience? Do RV shows generally have a good selection of Pop ups? Or are they intentionally (mostly) left out to not take attention away from larger ticket TT's, 5th's and RVs? I've heard mention that sometimes dealers actually bring some units to shows to sell from there. And that maybe at the end of the show, might be motivated to cut a bit more so as not to have to haul them back. Is that a thing? There is an RV show coming up that we had planned to attend just for ideas and drooling purposes at the Pleasanton, CA Alameda County Fairgrounds http://www.rvshow.net/links.html The event site lists dealers but I can't tell if tent trailers would be represented well or not, unless I called each dealer to ask.
