Tampa RV Show - Florida RV Supershow

Sharing is caring!

This week is the 2019 Florida RV Supershow in Tampa, Florida. The Florida RV Show is recognized as the greatest RV show in the country, and some say the largest. If you are in Florida and want a chance to see over 1,500 RVs, then you should make a trip over to Tampa!

Our RV family was invited to visit the Supershow during Industry day, before the RV show opened up to the public. I'm excited to share with you our first experience and some tips we learned to make your visit go smoothly. 

Where is the 2019 Florida RV Supershow?

The RV Supershow is at the Florida State Fairgrounds.

4800 US Highway 301 North
Tampa, FL 33610

What Days Can I Visit The Tampa RV Show?

Public Days are Wednesday - Sunday, January 16-20th, 2019.

Wednesday through Saturday the hours are 9:00am - 6:00pm while Sunday is 9:00am - 5:00pm. 

What Does the RV Show Cost?

If you have a family, you'll be happy to know that children 16 and under are FREE!! Adults are $10 per ticket, and that ticket will get you in the first day you visit and the following day. So it works as a 2 day ticket.

Discounts: Wednesday is Senior Citizen's Day with $1 off tickets. Military and First Responders receive $1 off admission any day. 

Parking at the RV Supershow

Parking costs $8 per car and $14 per RV at the Fairgrounds. Be sure to bring cash to pay for your parking. 

Our Tips For Visiting The Tampa RV Show

Bring the Family to the Tampa Florida RV Show

1. Arrive Early

You could spend ALL day here! I recommend arriving early and having a plan to walk to the RV sections you want to make sure and see. 

2. Plan Out What You Want To See

I'm a planner by nature, so my tip to plan out your day comes from wanting to help you get the most out of your day. You can totally wing it, but it's going to be really busy and I don't want you to miss anything. 

3. Download The App 

If you are a digital kind of person, then you can download the RV Supershow's app to either your IOS device or Android. Click here to learn more.

4. Or...Print The Show Layout

If you don't want to use your cellphone as a map, then print out a map ahead of time to help you plan. 

5. Arrive At The RV Show With Friends

Visit The Tampa RV Show With Friends

Meeting up at the RV show can be a fun experience. We were camping in Orlando and decided to drive 1 hour to meet up with our friends Dustin and Jill, with Fulltime Families, to walk around together.

Not only did it provide friends for our kids to hang with, but Tony and I were able to connect and dream about new RVs with other RV friends. 

6. Visit The 2 Exhibit Halls To Break Up Your Day

The Exhibit Halls have so many RV vendors and suppliers including campgrounds, RV repair, RV rental companies, RV kitchen accessories and so much more. 

7. Plan to Attend a Seminar

The RV Supershow offers Seminars, included in your cost of admission, throughout the day. Check out the list of seminars on your app. 

8. Visit the Kid's Zone (Sat. & Sun only)

If you have kids, be sure to check out the Kid's Zone. They plan to have bounces houses, face painting, rock climbing and more. 

9. Take the Tram Around The RV Show

Relax your feet for a bit and take the Tram around the 26 acres worth of RVs. 

10. Visit All Types of RVs

Bunk Motorhome

Be prepared to walk into all different types of RVs. From Super C's to toy haulers, you will see so many kinds of RVs with so many layouts. 

Our Favorite RV's and RV Layouts 

Since we are a full-time RV living and traveling family of 6, we are always on the lookout for great layouts for families. Bunk models in particular.

Since we already own a Class C motorhome, Tony and I especially liked this Omni Super C with the window over the cab bunk. How cool is that! 

Digital Nomad Desk in an RV

We also found several Class A motorhomes with desks build right in! Perfect for my digital nomad husband's desk. We love dreaming. 🙂 

Should You Visit The Tamp Florida RV Supershow?

Absolutely! Bring the family and make a day of it. Just be prepared to walk a lot, dress in layers, and try to take breaks to just enjoy. Especially if you are bringing kids along.
