POMONA...Three of Orange County’s leading dealers of recreation vehicles, Mike Thompson RV of Fountain Valley and Dennis Dillion RV and Airstream RV, both of Westminster, are set to showcase their latest wares at the 2018 California RV Show at Fairplex Pomona, beginning Oct. 5.

The three multi-million dollar businesses collectively sell thousands of the newest models and styles of RVs to Orange Countians who enjoy the RVing lifestyle.  Thompson alone is California’s largest volume selling RV dealer. The RV Industry Association’s July survey of manufacturers found RV wholesale shipments, including many to these dealers, finished at 36,525, an increase of 10.9% from the 32,936 units shipped last July.

This year, RV show visitors can expect to see more than 1,200 new (2019) RVs of all sorts and sizes on display, including 100 new RVs that will be ready for test drives. This is the only place to see all the new 2019 models from Class A, B, C and travel trailers, to 5th wheel trailers and toy haulers.

The show covers over one million square feet of displays and includes a large exhibitor tent featuring countless accessories and aftermarket products to personalize RVs, plus 40 informative seminars on a variety of RV-related subjects. Convenient parking and easy access to the show is assured with three gates. There will also be three food courts for hungry show goers.

“RVers from Orange County and all over the West Coast mark this show on their calendar every year,” said Tom Gaither, California RVIA Show Director. “There’s no better place to catch the RVing Lifestyle bug than this show. It’s the only place all year to check out the products on display from 17 dealers and to shop around to get the best deal on an RV.”

But there’s more to the show than just RVs. Meet American racecar driver Josef Nicolai Newgarden, who currently competes as a driver in the Verizon IndyCar Series. He won the 2017 IndyCar Series Championship and now drives the No. 1 Dallara Chevrolet for Team Penske.  Died in the wool Dodgers fans can say hello to the legendary Steve Garvey, and marvel at the archery skills of Frank Addington Jr., known as the Aspirin Buster for his prowess with bow and arrows.
