The 7 Best RV Shows In Pennsylvania

It’s the birthplace of famous figures like Kevin Bacon and Bob Saget and the stomping grounds of the likes of Benjamin Franklin. It’s a diverse and exciting state with too much to see for even the most dedicated explorer, filled with adventures ranging from rolling Amish hillsides to some of our country’s most important culture and history.

It’s Pennsylvania, one of the cradles of our nation’s history. And it’s an absolutely fantastic place to camp.

Not only is this northeastern state home to some of the most exciting road trips in America, but it’s also chock-full of opportunities for RVers specifically. Pennsylvania RV parks range from stunning, resort-style campgrounds with every amenity you can imagine to rustic, but picturesque, public parks and campsites. While you’re journeying through its many different landscapes, you’ll be able to enjoy the culture and cuisine of its German history… or maybe just get a sugar rush in Hershey, PA. Either way, it’s a state filled with all sorts of opportunities, both culinary and otherwise.

RVing is an ideal way to see Pennsylvania, since there’s so much ground to cover. In your very own rig, you’ll always have your privacy and you won’t have to constantly worry about finding your next hotel room. There are plenty of RV rentals available in Pennsylvania, and when you rent through RVshare, you’re sure to find a great deal on a quality rig — but eventually, you might just find yourself so smitten by the camping lifestyle that you’re ready to buy your very own vehicle!

Fortunately, along with all its other claims to fame, Pennsylvania is a great place to buy a new camper. Along with a high number of quality dealers, it also hosts a large number of camping shows and events all across the state, giving you the opportunity to walk through and get a feel for a variety of different makes and models all in one whirlwind weekend — or even just one day. Plus, RVs for sale at camping shows are offered at some of the best prices on the market, since many dealers are competing to get your business.

So if you’re ready to find your next RV in Pennsylvania, here are the upcoming RV shows you don’t want to miss!
