The 45th Annual Puyallup RV Show is May 2nd – 5th, 2019 at the Washington State Fair Events Center, the last big show before summer. This is the perfect opportunity to see hundreds of RVs in one location and learn more about the RV lifestyle.

What can you expect to see and do at the 2019 show? Let’s take a look.

Hundreds of New RVs at the Show

This year’s show contains 19 RV and manufactured home dealers featuring everything from a tent trailer to a vacation home for your lake property. There truly is something for every leisure need at the Puyallup RV Show.

With over 10 years of testing in the Australian outback, Black Series Campers is excited to introduce its line of travel trailers and pop-up campers to the off-roading enthusiasts of America.

Some of the returning favorites to the 2019 show:

TwinStar Credit Union has returned as the presenting sponsor of the 2019 Puyallup RV Show. They will be displaying in booths # 14 & 15 (located in the ShowPlex). This year’s booth will feature a money machine. Be sure and stop by their booth and watch someone grab some cash in the money machine, say “hi” and thank them for sponsoring the show while you are there.

Food Drive - After a successful launch at the 2018 Puyallup RV Show, the “Fill the Toy Hauler” food drive will again be at the show to support our neighbors in need. In an effort to collect even more food than last year, the show has expanded the opportunities to donate.

1) You can donate non-perishable food items via collection bins at participating Pierce County businesses that are exhibiting at the show. The collection boxes are scheduled to be in place starting two weeks before the show and stay in place until the show ends on May 5th.

2) Bring a non-perishable food item to the show May 2nd – 5th and place it in the garage of the toy hauler located just inside the Blue Gate. Donated food will help fill the pantry of Pierce County’s Emergency Food Network and be distributed locally so that no person goes hungry. To enhance your donation, the shows presenting sponsor, TwinStar Credit Union, and the Puyallup RV Show will match all the food donated pound for pound. Together, let’s fill the toy hauler until it overflows!

Hitching Demonstration - Travel trailers make up the majority of new RV sales today. If you are considering purchasing a travel trailer, you will probably need an equalizing hitch to safely tow it. If you are unsure of what an equalizing hitch is, what it does and how to use it then be sure to stop by the hitching demonstration at the northwest corner of the ShowPlex to learn more.
