I'm speaking at the 56th Annual Colorado RV, Sports, Boat & Travel Show, the last of five I'm doing this season. Unlike the others, it is not located downtown. Instead it is north of downtown at the National Western Complex. It's quite the place- maze-like in that there are levels and rooms off the main area - lots of nooks and crannies. The RV seminar stage is way off in a back corner on the main level. It is marked on the show map.
Each show has had a different character. I thought I'd seen all the new things but was wrong. Several of the shows were geared towards families and weekend campers and sportsmen. There were few high end RVs. Here is the priciest RV I've seen at the shows - the Ikon Renegade. I didn't catch the total price but the show special says payments are $3200+/month! It's built on a Freightliner chassis - very snazzy. It does have a guest bathroom - living the RV lifestyle in luxury! Two other rigs by this same dealer are definitely high end items.
Since this show also appeals to the sportsman, many booths offer tourist information and items useful to them. I found these Clam tents intriguing- quite roomy. And you can use this one for ice fishing. The other side comes down to protect from the weather. The small ones come in a container you can put on - or drag from - an ATV or snow mobile. I talked to one salesman who said they are going up by Grand Lake after the show for ice fishing. I wasn't aware ice fishing was possible in Colorado. Learn something new every day!
Tomorrow I'll share information about a new modular camper. And, as always, if you are in the area, stop by and say hello. Discount tickets are available online at the show site. Jaimie Hall Bruzenak
