We will be in Florida during this time and are thinking about going to this "largest RV show in NA" in Tampa January 17th. One thread in this forum section has many negative reviews on the show in the way that it is poorly organized.

We would be getting there by car. Is it best to be there early the first day to avoid crowds? We have never been to a large show. We assume the RV's are sectioned by dealer and brand? Our interest are toy haulers.

On vacation so we will not be in a rush but I am not one to spend hours in line ups either.

I see on the website that the show is sectioned by manufacturer.

First day has usually been Senior Day. I haven't checked the dates, but normally first day is Wed. Thur good day (still busy) Friday same. Sat/Sun
very busy. The pass is good for two days.

I worked the show (dealership) one year and attended about 10 years as a lookey see. LOL. Planning to go again this coming show.

We've gone several times planned what we wanted to see and made it a one day afair. No sense looking at what didn't fit our needs or what we couldn't afford.

We plan to do the same. Is it best to be there early the first day to avoid crowds or is it busy all days?

The RV Supershow is at the IX Center in Cleveland OH Jan 10-14. Its usually a decent show, and the IX Center is a good show venue.

We have been going for many years. Usually go for two days and camp somewhere. State park or private campground. Good show and lots to see besides RV's. Been to Hershey Pa. and many others this is the largest and best one so far. We go on Thur. and Friday. Senior day is crowded everyone wants to save a dollar. The weekends are crowded. This year the weather looks good which will bring out the folks.
