Has anyone been to the Knoxville RV Show? Was thinking of going this year but not sure it is worth the drive. Mostly looking for a Class B, more to just look than to buy right now, but didn't know if Bs show up at RV shows.

We went a couple of years ago. I only remember seeing one or two Class Bs there, but I'm sure what goes each year changes by what is being purchased.

I think it depends on the dealers who attend, and which brands you are looking for.
Look at the list of dealers attending,or call to ask. We found best variety were at dealers who specialized in them. Google search and pbone calls. Then a road trip.

We have been there the last two years. It is a local show with approximately 8-10 dealers there. If you are traveling more than 2 hours, I wouldn’t bother. The two largest dealers there are Camping World and TN RV Supercenter. Lots of lower end travel trailers and fifth wheels.

Thanks for the heads up. I'll see how the week goes, may make the drive on Saturday. I think it is about 90 minutes for me and I can always stop off at Bud's and the knife shop if the RV show is a bust.

We went to the RV show today. As far as your interest in class B units - they has 2 or 3 of them in the back of the convention center.

My wife and I are interested in looking at 30-34’ fifth wheels. They had a total of 3 at the show. The emphasis by all the dealers was to show lower cost travel trailers and a lot of bunk house models. My guess would be of the total RVs at the show, 65% were travel trailers. We were disappointed there were no Grand Design units there.

I don’t think we will return in the future.

Thanks, our plans for a trip on Saturday changed. We had a death in the family and had to make a quick trip to Ohio. Brother-In-Law has been going down hill for several years and COPD finally caught up with him.
