Northwest RVing 

The Northwest RVing Blog site is hosted by MHRV (Manufactured Housing and Recreational Vehicle) Show Association. Each year, MHRV presents three important trade shows in the greater Seattle area to promote and display the RV Lifestyle. We are all about RVing and hope you will enjoy the many articles posted here about RVing in general and about our upcoming shows. 

2020 Seattle RV Show

The 57th annual Seattle RV Show is coming up February 6th – 9th, 2020 at the CenturyLink Field Event Center. It is the oldest and largest indoor RV show in Washington state.

With such a huge selection of RVs on display, this year’s website has added the “RV Finder” so you can search for the types, manufacturers and models in order to see what will be at the show. This will help you narrow your search before you go and be prepared to go see the units you are interested in.

My last article detailed the first part of our holiday camping trip. With Thanksgiving behind us, we continued our trip enjoying time as our family of four in Oregon. We last left off in Seaside. To catch up, check out part one of this article.

There are lots of RV shows early in the year. Large RV Shows are great places to see and compare RVs in a climate-controlled indoor setting and save you the time and fuel of driving miles and miles between RV dealerships and dealing with traffic. But how do you know which RV Show is the best to attend?

Following are five things you should look for when deciding what RV show to visit:

Make the Most of Your Next RV Roadtrip

We started out on this mobile lifestyle 7.5 years ago with some very low-tech resources.  With just a flip phone, an awesome Nat Geo road atlas, a list of friends’ recommendations, a bird ID book, and a copy of 1,000 Places to See Before You Die, we got around, found campsites, and had some incredible adventures.  But oh, how times have changed!  With the parallel growth of both RVing and smartphone apps, what’s available at our fingertips today is a game changer.  Categorized and described below are a whole host of apps and online resources helpful to both plan your travels as well as make the most of them.  If you are curious about something, there’s probably an app for it.  While not exhaustive, this list includes our favorites as well as some great recommendations from fellow road warriors.

If you’re anything like our family, the holiday season includes many get togethers with family and friends. With 3 Thanksgiving days on our calendar this year, we scheduled our 2nd annual Thanksgiving trip with our RV. Since our trip would also lead into December this year, it was a great way to kick off the holiday season with lots of fun for our family of 4 before the Christmas rush. While the weather in our neck of the woods is sure to shut down camping season (aka towing season) by Christmas, we’ve appreciated the chance to squeeze in one final trip over Thanksgiving. With the birth of our second child in June, this past summer didn’t include many camping adventures, so we were grateful for this opportunity.
