RV Supershow in Tampa (January17-21)

Is anyone planning on going to the RV super show in Tampa? We are probably going to get ideas for floor layout and RV items.

That sounds like a good idea. So I checked to see if there would be an RV show near me. Turns out there are 3 shows this month in the Atl.area.

Greater Atlanta RV Show
January 5-7, 2018
Georgia International Convention Center - College Park, GA

Georgia RV & Camper Show
January 19-21, 2018
Cobb Galleria Centere - Atlanta, GA

Atlanta Camping & RV Show
January 26-28, 2018
Atlanta Exposition Center South - Atlanta, GA


Tampa has a big used bus sales lot there also. They advertise a lot here in Atl. on Craigs List

We went last year when we thought we were buying an RV. I remember alot of booths with stuff that would be of an interest in anyone building a schoolie.

Their buses range in price from low $3k -$10k

They're a little better than BGA. At least on prices.

I went to the RV show in tampa last year and it was fun to look at the million dollar motorhomes..

no skoolies were there though in the parking lot..

one of the forum members here seems to have gotten a great bus at Tampa Bus Market..

tampabusmarket.com needs to hire a web guy. Come to think of it, BGA needs to hire a web guy. Maybe I'll send them both my card. Holy crap their sites are awul.

BGA has a bus I want but not at a price I want to pay: #1798 2002 Thomas EF 3126 Caterpillar Diesel Allison Auto Air Brakes Florida 8 Row A/C used bus@ BGA School Buses, Inc. Hudson, FL

For half that price I'd be buying. For 2/3 that price I'd be considering.

Did you notice how many crappy used cars they've listed on their site?

Make them a cash offer at the price you think reasonable.
