Finally we are getting a chance to go to this RV show. Can't wait to see everything. We have wanted to go to this show for years but never have been able to. We brought our Open Range Roamer in September 2017 so this visit to the show is just to see new things. Can't wait.

Bet you won't be able to! :mrgreen:

It is MASSIVE. It will take all four days to see everything. Helps to have something specific in mind to narrow down the scope but yeah... it is awesome. And can be mind-numbing. Bring a notepad so you can take notes if you're interested in anything specific because to remember and find it later on probably won't be an option. And wear your sneakers!

Have fun. We go every year. Will be there on Thursday this year hoping for lesser crowds.

We are going on Wednesday. We don't plan on looking at every camper just what looks interesting. Taking our cameras to take photos of what interesting.

We will be there just Thursday. I have a few select rigs I want to look at.

What ever you do, don't get lunch inside the stadium. Expensive and not good.

Thanks for the info about the food. We want to go early then take a break and go back to our camper to a rest, grab a bite to eat and back to the show.

Love that mileage in your signature. Are you the original owner?

Yeah I think we paid over $30 for sub par hamburgers and fries.

Can anyone recommend a decent lunch restaurant close by, but outside the gates?

The pulled pork wasn't bad last year, but I wasn't paying so that made it good. :mrgreen:

Outside there is Tanger Outlets about a half mile from the gates, if that. In there is a Subway, Red Robin, Starbucks, and Wendy's. If you want a good sit down meal, there is a great Italian restaurant a couple miles from the gates called Fenicci's. It is at 102 W. Chocolate Avenue.

Aside from that, there are a bunch of places scattered about, but the ones I listed are the ones I'm familiar with.

if you follow that loop road back (Hershey park drive?) around past the RV park on left (hershey meadows?) to 322E, there is a fuddruckers on your LS right where you hit 322 http://www.fuddruckers.com/hummelstown
may shows 2.9 miles, 6 min (yea right) from the giant center.

Yes we are the original owners. Roughly 350,000 was put on in the first 3 yrs. we owned it. It has had an easier life the last 9 yrs.

That mileage makes my 265K look like nothing

When I would take the truck into the dealer, all the sales people would ask me how much is on the truck this time. A couple times I think my truck helped them sale a truck. Cause the sales person would bring someone over and have me tell them what year my truck was and how many miles was on it.

We had a late lunch at Smoked, which is next to Fuddruckers. Good food and beer. Btw, the show has half price tickets after 3 pm (We went after our lunch). Will hit the show again in the morning
