RV/MH Hall of Fame Supplier Show Nears 180 Exhibitors

RV/MH Hall of Fame President Darryl Searer reports that the Elkhart, Ind.-based organization is close to selling out its “RV Hall Supplier Show,” planned for Sept. 26-29 during the all-industry Elkhart RV Open House. With 170 suppliers already signed up to exhibit at the show, he added, the grand total of participating suppliers – both OEM and aftermarket vendors – will likely wind up at close to 180 to 190 companies when all is said and done.

However it winds up, added Searer, it’s a supplier turnout unlike anything the industry has seen since the closure in 2017 of the 54-year-old National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Ky.

Not to mention the fact that it’s the Hall’s first Open House-related supplier event in three years, when it was first introduced to the industry as an adjunct to the 12-year old Elkhart RV Open House in the wake of the pandemic.

“It is unbelievable how it’s developed and the excitement around it, of just the people being able to get together,” said Searer, noting that the HOF is clearing out and refurbishing its RV museum to make way in part for the supplier show’s expansion. “The last time we did it was 2019. So, we didn’t have anything in 2020 or 2021. So now in 2022, suppliers couldn’t be more excited to get together and share things and show their wares and how they’ve progressed in the last couple of years.”
