We are thinking about driving up from Naples for a day.  I understand that NuWa will have some new HitchHiker 5th wheels there and we'd like to see them.

The Plan at this time is for us to be there, probably Fri and Sat.  It may be time to start seriously looking for our rig of the future.

Yep, we’ll be there, driving over from Melbourne just like last year. :)

Wonder if H & L are going to try and schedule an “official” RV-Dreams meet up time this year just like last?

They may be close enough to Tampa to make it to the show.  We’ll see.

Maybe a bit early to plan a specific day, but what say you Howard?

We'll be in central and southern FL for Dec and a lot of Jan if you want to meet and talk about Nu Wa we've liked our Hitchhiker II a great deal.  That said there are a couple of things to be aware of nothing major or to be worried about.

Putting it on our calendar...we'll be in central FL so it should be an easy "do" for us.

Hmmm.  We're about 540 miles from Tampa now.  We should be able to cover that distance in two months, but I'm not sure.  biggrin

Thanks Mallo, that would be great if we can work it out to meet.  If you want, PM me with where you'll be staying and perhaps we can get together to talk about Hitchhikers and RVing in general.

An update for the 2011 Tampa RV show

We'd like to meet anyone that's going on Thursday, January 13 about noon at Floating restaurant in the East midway. Here's a map.  There's been some mention that Thursday is great for vendors  having a bigger selection.


Leave a message here so we know who to watch for. I'm hoping Howard and Linda will meet up with all of us too.

Directions and other info can be found here.

Yes, Thursday is a good day to go to the show.  That has been true in the past, especially if you’re planning just a one day visit to the show.  However, Thursday is the 13th of January.  I assume we’re all reading the same calendar for 2011.  Thursday, January 13th.

We’ve set that as our tentative date now that others have chimed in.  Question is, using Howard’s word from Saturday’s post, will H&L make an “appearance” at the show on Thursday?  {Grin}

Bill

If Thursday, the 13th, is the date.... we will try to be there.  We probably will be at the show a couple of days so one of those can be the 13th.  Hope to see as many RV-Dreamers as possible :o)))

I wish we were going to be there again this year. We had plans and even a spot booked in Port Richey. But you know plans.............man plans and God laughs. Now we are not going to be there. *sigh

Have fun everyone who is going.

I am going to the rally April though. Can't wait for that.

If all goes well, we'll be there on the 13th.

I have a question on the directions link above.  The show address is on Hwy 301, but the directions tell me to turn right onto Orient Rd which is further west of Hwy 301.  We're coming from Naples so will exit I-75 at MLK Blvd and go west.

Can anyone clarify for me?  We went a couple of years ago and thought I turned right on 301.

The other Bill and Linda!  smile

I-75 to Exit 260B, which is MLK / SR-574, go west 2 miles on MLK / SR-574, turn right on 301 N.  Entrance to Fair Grounds on the left about a 1/2 mile give or take.  This brings you in on the east side of the Fair Grounds and works great.  Orient road will work, its just further and having lived in Tampa I recommend the 301N entrance.  YMMV.

The other other Bill & Linda

Hey Everyone,

Per our request, Dave Kelly, Marketing Director for the Florida Supershow, sent us 20 passes for the show.  Each pass is good for two people ($20 value, but does not include parking fee).  Passes are good for any day of the show.

So, if anyone wants to send me a private message or email with your address, we can mail you a pass this week or next ... as long as they last.  smile

Delaine and Lindy will be there on the 14th and 15th just reserved a Hotel room. Make sure if your staying in a Hotel you question the price. We were quoted $99.00 a night, but told them they were listed on the Hotel site for $79.00, we got the $79.00 price. Free trans to and from the RV Show. We decided to not bring the Mobile Suites, we are in Sebring, Fla about 80 miles South of the Fair grounds. Hope to see y'all there.

Thank you to everyone that came out in the cold to the Tampa RV show and gathering at the floating restaurant. It was great  seeing everyone and hope you found a bargain or two.  The vendors were mostly parks, but that was a good thing.

Thank you Linda and Howard, it's been great meeting with the group you've started here on the forum and website.

Howard and I had a great time meeting up with everyone yesterday.  We also had fun going through all the vendors.

Dinner at Crazy Buffet was out of this world.

Thank you Dee and Jim for coordinating this.

So what wonderful things did you lucky people find down there? Those of us who are still working up here in the frozen north would like to know.

I've seen some discussion of Heartland's newest, the Bighorn Ti32, that uses the intellectual property they purchased from the now-defunct Titanium line. Have any of you seen it? What do you think of it?
