2020 was the year of the road trip, and we expect the road trips will continue to roll in for years to come. So, why not spend some time checking out the rig of your dreams? Visiting one or more RV shows in Florida will allow you to do some research and talk to manufacturers and dealers about things like RV quality, RV maintenance, and RV insurance.

Since Florida is a popular winter destination for part-time or full-time RVers, there is usually no shortage of RV shows to visit. As with any event this year, several of the scheduled Florida RV shows have felt the coronavirus pandemic’s impact, forcing cancellations or postponements. Since some shows are waiting to reschedule or book the next event, it’s good practice to visit the RV show’s website for the latest information.

1. Florida RV SuperShow

Dates: January 19-23, 2022

Location: Florida State Fairgrounds; Tampa, Florida

The Florida RV SuperShow is one of the country’s most talked-about RV shows. The day before the event opens up to the public, RV industry members have a chance to network and spend time speaking to vendors and manufacturers, learning about what’s innovative or new in RVing. Once the show opens to the public, people can wander the exhibits, vendor booths, and all RVs. The show is impressive, and it’s one to add to your list of must-visit RV shows in Florida.

2. Fort Myers RV Show

3. The Tampa Great American Tiny House Show

Dates: January 29-30, 2022

Location: Florida State Fairgrounds; Tampa, Florida

RVing and tiny house living go hand in hand. Members of the RV community often take school busses or large containers and convert them into schoolies and tiny mobile houses. The Tampa Great American Tiny House Show attracts people interested in tiny living. Walk the homes on display, talk with other tiny homeowners, and shop the vendors who sell products created for smaller living spaces. Even if tiny houses aren’t for you, the event offers RVers resources as well.

4. Jacksonville RV Mega Show

Dates: February 10-12, 2022

Location: Jacksonville Equestrian Center; Jacksonville, Florida

The Jacksonville RV Mega Show is the best show for you and your leashed furry friends to visit if you can’t make it to the other RV shows. And even if you can make the other shows, there is no harm in adding another show to your list, especially if you are in the market for a deal. This RV show has exhibitors, vendors, giveaways, and RV dealers from the Jacksonville area, and is one of the top RV shows in Florida, specifically the northeastern Florida area.

5. West Palm Beach RV Show

Dates: February 17-20, 2022

Location: South Florida Fairgrounds; West Palm Beach, Florida

Many RVers have dogs, and the West Palm Beach RV Show recognizes that it’s hard to leave furry children at home or inside of your RV. That’s why this event permits leashed dogs. Attendees also have the opportunity to enter daily gift card giveaways, shop vendor booths, and walk through RVs from local dealers. Check the event’s webpage for an updated list of dealers and manufacturers as the event gets closer. Seniors, military, and first responders ask for your discount at the window.

6. Annual RV SuperSaver Show

Dates: Typically in March; 2022 TBD 

Location: Century Link-Lee Sports Complex; Ft. Myers, Florida

The Annual SuperSaver Show is a Florida RV show that’s smaller, but it shouldn’t be ignored. Smaller shows allow people to spend more time inside of RVs. This show is pet friendly and usually has free parking and free admission.
