Find out More at 39th Annual Flint Camper & RV Show March 17-20, 2016

FLINT, MI--(Marketwired - March 09, 2016) - According to the Michigan Association of Recreation Vehicles and Campgrounds (MARVAC), recreation vehicle sales in Michigan continue to be strong, proving that RVing is becoming the travel choice for tens of thousands of Michigan families.

Find out about the economical and family-orientated vacation opportunities of RVing at the 39th Annual Flint Camper and RV Show, March 17-20, 2016. The show will be at Dort Federal Credit Union Event Center, 3501 Lapeer Road, Flint, Mich., located south of 1-69 at the Center Road exit. The show is open weekdays from 2-9 p.m.; Saturday 11 a.m.-8 p.m.; and Sunday 11 a.m.-5 p.m. 

There will be more than 50 new 2016 units including folding campers, fifth wheel travel trailers, toy haulers and travel trailers from area dealers including Leisure Days Travel Trailer Sales and Trade Winds RV Center in Clio; New Horizons RV Center, Flint; General RV Center, Birch Run; Hamilton's RV Outlet, Saginaw; Tri City RV, Bay City; Circle K RVs in Lapeer and McDowell RV Sales & Service, in North Branch. Special show prices range from $6,995 to $75,000.

"Families are recognizing the affordability and ease of vacationing in an RV," said Bill Sheffer, show director. "Especially when considering the cost and restrictions of airline travel, versus the cost of a few tanks of gas and convenience of being on your own schedule, having personal space and the ability to take what you need and want on a vacation." 

According to a recent vacation cost comparison study for the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association, gasoline would have to be between $12.00 and $14.00 per gallon before an RV vacation becomes more expensive than a vacation with air travel and hotel accommodations.

At the 39th Annual Flint Camper & RV Show, March 17-20, multiple MARVAC member campgrounds from around the state will be represented, along with booths featuring parts and accessories, RV financing and RV rentals.

Adult admission is $5; senior admission (55 and over) $4 and children 12 and under are free! Parking is free. Coupons for $1 off admission are at area Big Boy restaurants, local participating RV dealers, the View Newspapers and online at www.marvac.org. For more information call 517.349.8881.
