Editors Note: The 39th annual show will take place January 22-30, 2022
It’s hard to believe unless you’ve experienced it, but each winter tens of thousands of full-time and part-time RVers, looking for a good time, converge on the small, Sonoran desert hamlet of Quartzsite, Arizona. Located just off Interstate 10, 125 miles west of Phoenix and 20 miles from the California border, this sleepy little community transforms into the world’s largest gathering of RVers on the planet, a phenomenon that started 39 years ago.
Roughly 150,000 RVers from all over the country and the Canadian provinces are expected at the 2022 show. “This little town goes from hibernation to a full-blown party!’, says Kimmy King, promoter of the giant, nine-day RV showcase. “My father, Kenny King, who passed away last April, came up with the idea back in 1983 and a year later, he made it happen. It didn’t take long for RVers from all over America to discover the largest celebration of RVers in the world. We sorely miss dad but we can smile knowing his legacy will last forever.”
Much more than an RV show, The Quartzsite Sports, Vacation and RV Show is a destination, a huge, rocks and
mineral show and an exceptional, people-watching venue. Attendees will be able to walk through hundreds of
new and pre-owned RV models and there will be over a dozen, fully-staffed RV service bays offering repairs and
service plus immediate installation on many of the items exhibited and sold at the show.
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 “workamper” recruiters from
National Parks and private campgrounds will be in attendance
One can expect to see the “who’s who” of the RV industry, but the stars of the show 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.”
