As we approach the holidays, we know the winter/spring consumer shows won’t be far behind. The show season kicks off January 24-26 and continues through April. We thought this would be a good time to bring back our good friend, Chris Dougherty, who reviews new RVs and gets to see the innovations and technologies that manufacturers are introducing in the 2020 models that will be at the shows.

Join us this week to learn about these new features so that you will know what to look for when attending the early consumer shows in January. Understanding the new products and technologies will assist you in selecting what is important to you as you contemplate the purchase of your next RV. Do you really need – or want – one of these great items or can you live without it. Draw up your own list of “must haves” as you check out the new RVs and prepare your short list of selections that catch your attention. And who better to get input from than the technical editor of the two leading consumers magazines in our industry?

Chris has been very busy the past four months with industry events around the country and product evaluations that you will see in upcoming issues of the magazines. Pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee – or something stronger – and join us for the wit and wisdom Chris will bring to the program this week.
