The Pomona RV Show

We went with Jerry and Irene to the Pomona RV show which was about 30 miles away from us in Long Beach. This is typically a very large show and is unique in that it is produced by the manufacturers of RVs. As luck would have it, at the entrance to the Fairgrounds was this excellent railroad exhibit. My favorite was this Union Pacific 9000 locomotive.

There were about 1,000 rvs at the show representing all sizes and descriptions. While there were plenty of manufacturers represented, sales reps and other factory representatives, there were very few folks attending. Indeed, this was the first RV show we have ever attended where we almost never ran into another person looking at the same RV we were in. Needless to say, the sales folks were "hungry" for a prospect and we had absolutely no problem getting our questions answered.

Orinda thought this Airstream was cute, but decided she might prefer to fulltime in our 40' motorcoach instead.

This 40' Foretravel was more her style and was beautiful inside and out. This coach had a number of great features and attention to detail, but was priced more than a bit out of our price range!

Orinda had read of a famous hotdog spot called Pinks which is located in Los Angles. She was therefore delighted when I pointed out the Pinks Hotdog stand right here at the show!

As you can tell, there is nothing better than a good chili hotdoog with all the trimings. We all enjoyed the dogs and had a nice rest while eating.

We had a great time at the show, but ended up deciding that our Tour was the perfect coach for us. That is my idea of a great RV show -- see lots of fun stuff, learn about new rigs, and not spend any serious money!
