Another Saturday, another RV show! After dropping my car off at the mechanic to assess some exhaust damage caused last week by Mother Nature’s boundless wrath, Jay and I drove down to Worcester to check out the Worcester RV & Camping Show at the DCU Center. We attended this show in 2014 and were not very impressed, but we decided to give it another go because we had two free passes.
Unfortunately, there were even fewer big rigs this year. There was only one motorhome on display in the entire showroom, a 24 ft. Class C. We did, however, tour several nice travel trailers and there were plenty of fun, super light models such as Forest River’s popular R-Pod and the Riverside Retro. We also checked out a couple of neat 2015 hybrid trailers. These models have a traditional trailer design with pop-up style sleeping compartments on each end. These are perfect for families who need the additional sleeping space but want a smaller rig overall, and they are becoming quite popular.
Since we were closer to home, we took our time at this show and made sure to get more video action for your viewing pleasure. Again, we helped ourselves to any free literature from local campgrounds and resorts and picked up brochures for our favorite trailers from the show. Check out the pics below. There weren’t many vendors compared to the Springfield show so we didn’t purchase and goodies this time around. All in all, we had a swell time but next year Worcester, PLEASE BRING IN MORE MOTORHOMES! The DCU Center has the height for it and we definitely have the interest!
Upon leaving the show, we were greeted by a wet, heavy snow…déjà vu anyone? My thoughts drifted to Lady T and the summertime sadness that I’m convinced even the heartiest New Englanders are feeling right now. Later on Saturday evening, we sifted through dozens of brochures to pick our Memorial Day camping spot and after an hour or so of deliberating, we settled on…..
Well, you’ll just have to keep reading to find out! Don’t forget to follow us on FB, Twitter, and YouTube. See you on the road…
Our top picks for travel trailers were the Coachman Freedom Express 246RKS and the Starcraft Launch 21FBS. Have a look!
