You can discover all things RVing at this year's Seattle RV Show. The show includes over 20 local dealers, the Northwest’s largest display of RVs, exhibits, educational seminars, free weekend childcare and a chance to win a Jayco Travel Trailer valued at over $15,000.

The Seattle RV Show
There is nowhere else in our area where you can take in so much about RVing in one place.

The Seattle RV Show will cover 225,000 square feet and is the largest RV event held each year in the state of Washington. For the fifth year, it is being sponsored by WSECU and produced by the non-profit MHRV Show Association. Two dollars from every non-discounted box office admission will be donated to Washington State Parks (one dollar from WSECU and one dollar from MHRV).

The 53rd Seattle RV Show, which got its start in the old Seattle Coliseum in 1963, will include over 20 local RV dealers, displaying hundreds of 2016 RV models from pop-up trailers to luxury motor homes. There is even a vacation home for those considering something for their vacation property. Attendees are invited to enter a contest to win a $15,000 Jayco travel trailer.

Educational seminars conducted by well-known RVing experts will be held throughout the show. “There is nowhere else in our area where you can take in so much about RVing in one place,” said Dave Helgeson, MHRV Show Director. “It’s something that gets in your blood. People love the freedom it gives to experience and explore our beautiful continent and whether you’re a seasoned RV veteran or a first-time attendee, this is the place to learn more about this extraordinary lifestyle and get great deals on new units.”

Online ticket buyers will receive a free, one-day parking pass (a $15 value) for the Safeco Field parking garage (7’-0” clearance) and a coupon for a cup of chowder from FX McRory’s. Attendees are invited to visit one of the participating RV dealers for complimentary tickets if they’re interested in returning another day at no additional charge. This year’s show will also feature a beer and wine rest stop. A Pirate Treasure Hunt will highlight children activities and free childcare (12 and younger) will be available over the weekend.

Show attendees will be able to check out any or all of the newest RV models at their own pace and compare right on the spot, not possible by driving from dealer to dealer. Manufacturer representatives will be on hand to provide valuable information and advice. A fully equipped RV and tow vehicle will be on display at the “Ask the Technician” exhibit. RV service experts will give demonstrations and answer all questions.

During the show, RV dealers offer special financing options and competitive show prices, which can be substantial. Just in time for tax time, attendees can learn how the interest on an RV can be deducted like a home mortgage. “Most people don’t realize that,” said Helgeson. “The tax savings can be substantial making RV ownership even more affordable.”

Special financing options will be offered by presenting sponsor WSECU.

The annual event is popular with beginning RVers as well as veterans. “Beginners will be able to do a lot of research in one place, and typically get a great price if they decide to buy,” said Helgeson. “Most RVers will buy five or more RVs in their lifetime, so the show is an excellent opportunity for those who already have an RV to scrutinize all of the latest models. Many people attend each year just see what’s new, doing their research and taking advantage of the competitive atmosphere to make a great buy.”

There will be an RV walk-through for beginners considering RV ownership—a “what you need to know” briefing. A certified RV technician will demonstrate the operation of all systems including appliances, LP gas, electrical, fresh and waste water. The demonstration is designed to eliminate the concerns that first-time buyers might have and give them a true feel of what RV ownership is like. The exhibit will be offered every hour from noon to 5pm.

A “Bring Your Toys Display” will feature fun and innovative ideas about how to make RVing more fun. Snowmobiles, ATVs, kayaks, and motorcycles will be on display. On Thursday and Friday, show attendees are invited to take a complimentary tour of CenturyLink Field, home of the Seahawks.

General admission is $12 for adults and $10 for seniors 62 and older. Children 17 and younger will be admitted free if accompanied by an adult. Show hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday & Friday, 10 to 8 on Saturday and 10 to 5 on Sunday.
