Should we try to be there?
I think it's our duty as Owners of this forum and also the fact it's in our home town.

I'd think it would be GREAT if you came to the London show this weekend. We're going to see what's new.

Well the Ottawa RV Show has come and gone.......got a chance to go on Sunday afternoon after a busy weekend with my Scouting group.
This years show cost $12 for admission, and I had 3 teen-age boys with me. Fortunately though, those 19 and under were free. :) So it only cost me $12.
There were many RV dealerships represented, mostly from around Ottawa. I think I saw inside just about each unit there, Class A/B/C, 5th wheel, travel trailer, tent trailers and a few 'park' models. Some really nice units out there.
My focous was on the 5th wheels, that is what I would really like to get into, just waiting on the finance offer to give me the go-ahead. ;)
Got to see first-hand a trailer that came with an 'outside' kitchen. I really like this idea.....we don't cook inside the trailer at all, so having the 'extra' kitchen outside would really come in handy.

There was one unit there that had a rear-garage, and was in the theme from Big Dog. It was a neat unit, rear-garage, a loft that would sleep 3 children. Not personally for me as my kids are all older teenagers and I don't care for the garage (my truck won't fit in it :mrgreen: ). Here are some pictures though.....

I saw that Cedar Creek at the London show a couple weeks ago. It's nice when it's open, but like a lot of 5ers we saw, when the slide outs are in, there isn't much room to move. In most of them you couldn't get into the fridge or the kitchen was in the wrong spot for us. I was REALLY disappointed with the 2010 models.
Kitchener show is in 2 months, so we'll have a look to see if there will be anything different at that one.

I wish I had the time to go.....I would assume that a show near Toronto would be larger than in Ottawa. ;)

Welcome to the forum btw!
