RVs: The Efficient Trendsetters of Today and Tomorrow

41st Annual Detroit Camper & RV Show Opens Today in Novi

NOVI, MI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 14, 2007 -- Did you know that actor Matthew McConaughey, hall-of-fame major league pitcher Bob Gibson, and pro golfer Davis Love III are all avid RVers? As it turns out, many celebrities want the same things that we want -- peace of mind, more time with family and a "home away from home" on the open road! You can find your perfect RV at the Detroit Camper & RV Show, going on now.

The 41st Annual Detroit Camper & RV Show has a display of nearly 250 new 2007 RV models ranging in price from $5,000 to more than $400,000, plus parts and accessories. Consumers can receive special rebates of up to $5,000 off the purchase of select RVs at the show, or take advantage of special closeout pricing on 2006 models. Pick up a free "RV & Campsite" camping guide, along with free campground information.

The show starts today, and runs through February 18, 2007, at the Rock Financial Showplace in Novi (located just 1 mile west of Novi Road). Show hours are weekdays 2-9 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m.-6 p.m. The cost for adult admission (ages 13 and up) is $9; children ages 12 and under are admitted free. Seniors are admitted for just $5 today and Thursday (no coupon necessary).

Free health screenings, courtesy of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, will be performed aboard The Blues Cruiser, a specially designed double-expandable semi-truck, set up in the parking lot. The Blues Cruiser will be operating Friday, 2-8 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. For additional information, please visit

Dodge fans and owners will have an exclusive chance to view the first Dodge-themed RV from Monaco Coach Corp., which is adorned with the distinctive Dodge Ram logo and offers quality and luxury features for the Dodge enthusiast. This unique RV makes its first Michigan appearance at the show.
