RV show lets you see how far the industry has come

We’ve definitely come a long way from old Winnebago’s and Boler campers.

The Affordable Trailers Indoor Sale has been drawing crowds to the Moose Jaw Exhibition Grounds, where you can get a close look at the variety of styles, models and sizes available for your RV travel needs.

From 12 metre deluxe edition RVs to super light trailer models, you really do have an option for whatever suits your touring lifestyle.

“It really varies with what each person and family is looking for,” Al Cross of Success RVs told the Times-Herald. “We have everything here from light weight models, around 1,800 pounds all the way up to a 40 foot model.”

Cross said models range in size from just over four metres to 12 metres in size and what a person or family decides to choose really depends on their lifestyle and individual needs.

“Seasonal destination travelling is getting more and more popular –– they will rent a site for the season and that’s their cabin, so to speak, for a holiday there,” Cross said about just one of the RV lifestyles people follow.

“There’s a variation –– it’s cheaper holidays, you can prepare your own meal, you’re not dining out and there’s no better lifestyle,” Cross said on the freedom people have when they can travel and park wherever suits their vacation planning. “When you go to a campground, your neighbour is there for the same reason.”  

Cross said the added bonus of being in nature and getting to meet and swap travel stories with fellow RV owners is part of the fun and excitement of an RV lifestyle.
