The 4 Best RV Shows In Utah

When it comes to states perfect for RVers, it’s hard to compete with Utah. I mean, how many states can say they boast not one or two but five National Parks?

For a relatively small state, Utah has a whole lot of natural beauty to squeeze into your RV vacation. Along with checking Bryce Canyon, Arches, Zion, Capitol Reef and Canyonlands off your National Park to-do list, there are a host of other incredible campgrounds and RV parks in Utah, too.

Whether you’re looking to climb and mountaineer or just sit back and enjoy the scenery with a cold beer in your hand, Utah’s stunning landscape won’t disappoint. Along with the surreal-looking, alien red rock landscape, there’s a host of relaxing hot springs and bodies of water to canoe, kayak, and camp alongside — not to mention, of course, the most famous of Utah’s lakes, the great big one that’s home to its capital.

Salt Lake City is a world-class metropole with some of the finest dining and cultural pursuits you could ask for, and it’s a great way to break up the outdoor tourism that brings campers to the so-called Beehive State to begin with. But after you’re done taking in all the urban excitement, there’s no place like your very own RV to return to as a safe and peaceful haven of privacy.

Of course, there are plenty of fantastic RV rentals in the state of Utah, especially when you rent on the peer-to-peer RV rental market through RVshare. Yes, we’ll admit we’re a tiny (tiny!) bit biased… but the cash-saving opportunities are undeniable. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to rent a rig that’s actually used, loved, and lived in, as opposed to a dull, whitewashed commercial rental fleet vehicle.

But let’s face it. Utah’s got enough beauty to keep you occupied for decades, and it’s only one state in this big, beautiful nation of ours. It might just be time to get a rig of your very own!

When you find yourself on the market to purchase an RV, attending RV shows is one of the very best opportunities you’ll come across for learning as much as possible about what kind of motorhome or camper will work best for you. That’s important, because it helps you make an informed buying decision — that is, one you won’t regret several thousand dollars later.

Each camping show is filled with area RV dealers, camping and campground exhibitors, and outdoor equipment vendors, all standing by to answer your questions and vying for your business. At a travel trailer show, you’ll also have the chance to walk through and experience a huge number of different styles of rigs hands-on, which is a critical part of any RV purchase decision. There’s only so much information you can glean from online research, no matter how diligent you are!

Sounds great, right? But if you’re wondering, “Where are the RV shows near me?” — no worries, we’ve got you covered.

Here are the four best camper and RV shows in the state of Utah.

Why You’ll Love the Utah Sportsmen, Vacation and RV Show

Even if you’re not ready to sign any ownership paperwork, the Utah Sportsmen, Vacation and RV show is a fantastic opportunity to get informed about your upcoming purchase and also to simply enjoy a fun family weekend. Because when you’re done exploring the 230,000 square feet of RVs on display, there’s still a whole lot to do at this camping expo!

Vendors will be available selling all sorts of the latest RV accessories, and also representing local resorts and lodges if you need help choosing your next destination. There will also be hunting guides, fishing guides, and even an appearance from the International Dutch Oven Society — yes, that’s a thing — to help you learn more about this unique and delicious way to cook outdoors!

Have a four-legged camping companion? Check out the dog agility demonstrations that’ll go down every half hour, where dog-training elite will show off their well-trained dogs’ tricks.

4. The Utah RV Supershow

While they might not have all the details for the 2018 show available quite yet (since 2017’s only recently ended), the Utah RV Supershow is perhaps the largest RV show of its kind in Utah — which means you don’t want to miss it if you’re on the market for your first — or even your next! — recreational vehicle.

Why You’ll Love the Utah Sportsmen, Vacation and RV Show

Representing well-known, nationwide dealers like Camping World and also local favorites like Ray Citte RV, the Utah RV Supershow is just that: super-well stocked with rigs of every make, type, and model for you to explore and discover. From big Class A motorhomes to tiny fold-up trailers, you’ll be able to see and experience rigs from all across the spectrum, and almost certainly find the perfect one for your camping needs.

We also love that the Utah RV Supershow supports local families in need by offering a special savings incentive to you and your family: Each can of non-perishable food you bring to donate to charity will get you a dollar off your price of entry, up to $4.00 per ticket. (That’s a savings of 50% of the total ticket price… and you can feel great about it for more than just the cash savings!)

Although we don’t have all the updated information for the 2018 show, check back here as well as at the show website itself as next year’s show date approaches nearer. This expo is held in fall, historically over a weekend in the middle of September.
