It may not be quite like the glory days, but attendance at RV shows appears to be on the rise.

According to a report from Pedata RV Center, a number of RV shows across the United States have experienced significantly improved attendance, which hopefully indicates recovery for the industry.

Attendance was up at the following shows:

Florida RV Super Show in Tampa – attendance increased by 12% in comparison to 2009, more than 50,000 in attendance.

Grand Rapids, Michigan RV Show – attendance doubled in comparison to 2009, more than 20,000 consumers attended.

20th Annual Colorado RV Adventure Travel Show in Denver, CO – attendance increased by 28% in comparison to 2009.

Ohio RV Super Show – attendance increased by 33% in comparison to 2009.

24th Annual Washington Camping RV Expo in Chantilly – attendance increased by 65% in comparison to 2009.

“In addition to the spike in attendance the sales have improved drastically in comparison to last year at this time,” says Pedata RV Center’s Gerard Pedata. “The obvious positive indications of the increase in attendance as well as the subsequent increase in sales has left dealers and manufacturers looking forward to 2010.”
