The 3 Best RV Shows In Oklahoma

Oklahoma is way more than just OK, as anyone who’s spent even a modest amount of time in the state can attest to.

Although it might have a reputation for offering little more than vast, flat fields and a whole lot of corn, it’s actually got a stunning and diverse landscape, including lakes, hills, and forests. And no matter what you’re into, there’s a ton to see and do both in its urban centers and its beautiful rural scapes!

Maybe you’re craving a wilderness getaway in one of Oklahoma’s relaxing and tranquil state and RV parks. You can fish, swim, and boat in its lakes and rivers, hike and bicycle under the shade of its walnut and dogwood trees, or even just relax at your campsite, kicking up your heels in a hammock or making some s’mores around the fire.

When you’re ready for a little more excitement, though, you don’t have to go far. With cities like Tulsa and Oklahoma City, there’s no shortage of attractions, activities, and dining when you’re looking to do a little bit of urban exploration. The state is even home to the Route 66 Museum, a must-see for anyone who’s got a love affair with American road trips!

Speaking of which…

Few states lend themselves as well to RV travel as does Oklahoma. After all, it’s big enough that it’s going to take you a while to see it all, and driving is the best way to get from end to end. Plus, it’s studded with beautiful campsites and public lands along the way, so you’ll never be without a beautiful vista out your windshield.

You’ll also be able to enjoy your privacy for the duration of your travels, not having to worry about dealing with someone else’s timeline or expensive hotel rooms.

If you don’t already have an RV of your own, don’t worry — there are tons of RV rentals available in Oklahoma, both through traditional commercial dealerships and the peer-to-peer network here at RVshare. (You might be surprised to discover just how much cash you can save by renting your rig from a private owner!)

But as amazing as traveling in an RV rental is, having one of your very own is even better.

Obviously, purchasing an RV is a big decision — we’re talking tens of thousands of dollars, which is a big investment no matter how much money you make. But one great option for people on the RV market is to check out a variety of different makes, models, and types of motorhomes and travel trailers at a big event put on just for that purpose.

Yup, we’re talking about RV shows! Featuring not only a ton of RVs to shop and walk through but also entertainment and other outdoor lifestyle vendors, these expos are basically carnivals for RVers. You’ll have the opportunity to learn a whole lot about the right kind of vehicle for you in a very short period of time… and also to buy that vehicle at a discounted rate, if you do happen to find your dream rig.

“But are there any of these RV shows near me?” you might be wondering. And if you live in Oklahoma (or are traveling there soon), the answer is a great big “Yes!”

Here are the very best RV shows you don’t want to miss in Oklahoma.

1. The Tulsa Boat, Sport and Travel Show

You might be wondering why this show is at the top of our list, since the word “RV” doesn’t even appear in its title.

But don’t be fooled! While this Tulsa camping show does include boats, it’s also jam-packed full of motorhome and travel trailer vendors and exhibitors, as well as outdoor gear outfitters and representatives from local camping destinations you don’t want to miss. Plus, it features all kinds of fun, hands-on activities — like a zip line! — so you know it’ll be a blast for the whole family.

Why You’ll Love the Tulsa Boat, Sport and Travel Show

Held annually in the 448,000-square-foot fortress that is the River Spirit Expo Center at Expo Square in Tulsa, Oklahoma, this camper and RV show is a great way to see some of the best and brightest RVs available on the market from Tulsa-area dealers. And since the center’s upper and lower levels are connected by side ramps, stairs, and an elevator, you don’t have to worry about anybody lacking access to each and every inch of the show’s exhibition space.

Along with campers, trailers, and motorhomes, this show will also allow you to browse boats of all shapes and sizes — from pontoon and fishing boats down to personal crafts and kayaks that would make great additions to your set of can’t-leave-without-it camping gear.

Plus, show exhibitors range from general sporting goods (like Dick’s) to real estate brokers to resort campground representatives. No matter what exactly you’re on the market for, you’re sure to find something that suits your interests this January and February in Tulsa.

Psst — want to get the very first look at all the shiny, new vehicles and boats? Check out Preview Night on Monday, January 30. It’s $15.00 as opposed to the normal $10.00 entry, but $5.00 coupons are available from a wide variety of area participants (see below) and you’ll also score FREE food and beer!

Conclusion

RV shows really are a unique opportunity to see and experience many different RV types, makes, and models for yourself and with your own two eyes, which can be an irreplaceable boon to someone who’s on the market to buy a rig of their own. And as you can see, there are lots of different RV shows and expos to choose from across the state of Oklahoma, and at different times throughout the year to accommodate any travel schedule.

In addition to shopping for rigs at RV shows, we also recommend you take your time researching different styles and types of rigs and campers online, and talking to others who live the camping lifestyle. RV campers are well known for their friendly, helpful, community-driven attitudes, and most of them would love to help you find the perfect vehicle for your own adventures!

Finally, don’t forget to take your time. As we said above, buying an RV is a really big decision. It’s a lot of money, of course, and it’s also still a vehicle purchase despite the mortgage-sized price tag. That means your investment will likely depreciate… so it’s worthwhile to take the time to ensure you’ve found the absolute perfect RV for you and your family.

But even if you’re eager to get on the road and start traveling right now, taking your time to shop isn’t so bad. After all… it means you get to attend more fun, exciting RV shows!
