The annual RV show season kicks into full gear starting every January. For three months the RV industry piles their latest products into centers, halls, and stadiums where throngs of people look at truck campers and ask, “Where are the wheels?” and, “Is the truck included?” and, “I didn’t know truck campers were still made.” My personal favorite is, “Can I put this triple-slide long bed on my short bed Tacoma?”
Don’t laugh, it happens.
Years of standing on cement and enduring these insane questions has made many members of the truck camper industry somewhat imbalanced. We personally know one member of the industry who quit and started a car wash. Don’t laugh. That happened too.
So here’s what you can do to help. First, attend at least one of the RV shows listed in our 2016 Shows and Rallies section. We have contacted the truck camper manufacturers and dealers to find exactly which RV shows will have truck campers on display. This is the real list folks.
Second, tell them you read TCM. Short of writing a check for the full amount of the inventory on display, nothing says, “I’m a serious truck camper enthusiast” faster than touting you are a Truck Camper Magazine reader. Then ask, “Will this fit my Corolla?” Just kidding.
We have also contacted the rally organizers for a list of the 2016 truck camper rallies. If you enjoy the truck camper rallies as much as we do, it’s time to take a look at the 2016 rally schedule and make your rally plans. It’s all on tap and ready to rock in the 2016 Shows and Rallies section.
We will update the RV Shows and Rallies section as additional RV shows are announced. We will also remind you of RV shows and rallies as we approach the event dates. If you are hosting a truck camper rally that’s not featured in the RV Shows and Rallies, please email us.
