RV There Yet? Chronicles of a Retirement Adventure

Heartland Recreational Vehicles is the fastest growing RV company in the world and we are making news in the RV industry every day.

FRVTA Florida RV SuperShow

FRVTA Florida RV SuperShow

One of the biggest events in the RV industry is the Florida RV SuperShow which is held in Tampa each year in early January. We were lucky enough to be able to attend the show…twice.

The first time we attended was in January 2011 when we attended so that we could see a brand new floorplan…the Landmark Key Largo!  We fell in love with the plan and ordered ours before leaving the show.

While we were at the show we were privileged to meet Jim Beletti, Director of Owner Interests, along with several owners all of whom have now become like family.  We also met several folks from the home office, and we were very impressed with how helpful and down to earth they were.  

The second show we went to was the following year when we were officially Heartland RV owners! We were so excited to volunteer at the show, 'manning' the owners table – sharing our experiences with our fifth wheel, answering prospective owners questions about Heartland products and promoting the Heartland Owners Club!

We really enjoyed talking with prospective buyers as well as getting to know other Heartland owners that were volunteering their time at the SuperShow too.

The RV show itself is one of the largest of its kind. Acres and acres of pretty much any kind of camper you can think of…little ones, big ones, pop-ups, motorhomes, 5th wheels, etc - from inexpensive to top dollar.

You'll also find vendors of all types selling their wares…from spice mixes to pillows to satellite dishes and everything in between. Oh...and of course there are plenty of food vendors if you get hungry after touring camper after camper after camper.

In addition, there are scheduled RV-related seminars that you can participate in. Subjects cover things like weight & tire safety, full-timing and RV maintenance.

If you're near Tampa and enjoy scouting out the latest and greatest in RVs and accessories this is the place for you! The next Florida RV SuperShow will be held at the Florida State Fairgrounds from January 18-22. Don't forget to stop by the Heartland display and owners table…visit with old friends and make some new!

[Editor's Note: Heartland RVs will be represented at the FRVTA's Florida RV SuperShow by Camping World, General RV Center, America Choice RV. If you will be in attendance, please visit these exhibits.]

I didn't know that volunteering at a Heartland table was an option. Thanks! We've been to the Houston and Austin TX shows, but either there wasn't a Heartland table, or I was so overwhelmed that I missed it. Next time!
