British Columbia: Snowbird RV Show this week

The 2010 Snowbird RV Show and Sale, September 23-26 in Abbotsford, is gearing up for one of its biggest shows ever just in time for the 100th anniversary of RVs.

The Snowbird RV Show and Sale is Greater Vancouver’s largest fall recreation vehicle show. If you enjoy the RV lifestyle, or think you might like to give it a try, then this is the show for you!

With more than 50 exhibitors and over 180,000 square feet of display space, the Snowbird RV event is the place where you’ll see everything from recreational vehicles, tow vehicles, parts and service, RV resorts and properties, accessories and gadgets, hitches, diesel engines, and truck customizing. There is also an area for private sales of RVs by the public.

The event caters to everyone from experienced RVers to those looking for unique family getaways as well as the weekend warriors who want to learn about the world of opportunities that exist with recreational vehicles.
