RV Shows 2021: Don’t Miss These 7 Upcoming Events
Generally speaking, a great RV show will have a wide variety of brands, styles, makes, models, floor plans, and price points, on display for all types of shoppers, unless it happens to be a specialty show where just one type of RV is featured. But even specialty shows should display the full range of floor plans and features within that RV type.
Many of the biggest annual RV shows occur in the spring, when people start to think about their upcoming summer activities, but most of the spring shows were cancelled this year due to the pandemic, so the remaining fall shows promise to be even bigger than they have been in prior years. RV sales in 2020 and 2021 have been brisk, in spite of supply chain constraints, and these upcoming shows should provide all types of RVers with a unique and exciting experience.
In this list of RV shows in 2021, I included 7 great shows coming up in the fall of 2021 and a bonus specialty show for the growing van conversion market, but of course, there are many more RV shows that did not get on this list.

If you can’t make it to any of these great RV shows in the fall of 2021, the legendary Quartzsite Sports, Vacation, and RV Show, in the Arizona desert (which was not cancelled in 2021) will certainly be available in January 2022. So, if you’re looking for an amazing show and a unique experience, including vendors of every type imaginable, put a pin in your 2022 calendar and make your way to the desert for this legendary RV show.
Every year, thousands of RVers descend on this remote little desert town, quickly filling up all the campgrounds and transforming the desert into a boondocker’s metropolis. This show started over 40 years ago and is now billed as the largest annual gathering of RVs in the world. The date for the next Quartzsite show is January 22-30, 2022.

This is just a partial list of all the RV shows in 2021.

Most shows will include a good selection of motorhomes, travel trailers of all sizes, truck campers, 5th wheels, and camper vans. All of these RVs are priced to sell and there are always dealer staff on hand to answer your questions.
