With roughly 150,000 RVers from all over the US and Canada expected, the 2023 Sports Vacation and RV Show in Quartzsite Arizona will return under a 70,000-square-foot tent with exhibits, shopping, repairs, upgrades, and workshops. Located in Quartzsite, Arizona, this tiny town swells into what is described as the largest gathering of RVers in the world.
For nine days, RVers descend on the giant exhibit tent to see the latest gadgets, get work and upgrades done on their RVs and learn more about the RV lifestyle with workshops and seminars, a new feature for 2023. Attendance at the event is always free for spectators, as is parking. Located just off Interstate 10, 125 miles west of Phoenix and just 20 miles from the California border, this sleepy little town played host to an RV extravaganza that started 39 years ago.
Much more than an RV show, The Quartzsite Sports, Vacation and RV Show is a destination, a huge rock and mineral show, and an exceptional people-watching venue. Attendees can walk through hundreds of new and pre-owned RV models. Over a dozen fully staffed RV service bays will offer repairs and service, plus immediate installation on many of the items exhibited and sold at the show.
For 2023, a series of workshops and seminars will debut at the show, where attendees can learn about topics from trip planning to safety upgrades, solar and batteries, boondocking, and how to shop for an RV. The Media stage, sponsored by RV Life and managed by StressLess Camping, will host presenters all nine days of the show with free sessions that often include drawings for participants.
Numerous tourism-related exhibits from around the world are scheduled to participate, as well as representatives from dozens of the nation’s finest RV resorts and campgrounds. In addition, many "workcamper" recruiters from National Parks and private campgrounds will be in attendance.
One can expect to see the "who's who" of the RV industry. Still, the show stars are the over 400 exhibitors (set up in and around the Big Tent - a 70,000 square foot, fully carpeted structure) selling everything from the latest and greatest RV gadgets to fashion jewelry to local honey. Billed as "The Largest Consumer-Attended RV Show in the US," the number and diversity of exhibits you’ll find at this show cannot be found at any other event of this type in the United States.
"If you're looking for anything related to RVs, you'll find it at our show in Quartzsite," adds Kimmy King. "It's something every RVer should have on their bucket list and experience at least once in their lifetime." One of the appeals of Quartzsite at this time of year is the mild temperatures and plenty of free disbursed camping.
Many RVers travel thousands of miles to attend and spend their winters in the desert. This has become a must-attend event, and there are clubs, groups, organizations, and more who host their members and participants. The 2023 Quartzsite Sports, Vacation and RV Show is the icing on the cake for many attendees.
