2023 Elkhart RV Open House trade show

The Elkhart RV Open House trade show takes place from 25 to 29 September 2023, and will be attended by industry professionals and media, which this year will include Aboutcamp BtoB.

This trade show is made possible through the collaboration of two industry giants, Thor Industries and Forest River. These companies, both headquartered in Elkhart, organize this event, which has become the largest RV dealer show in the world.

Aboutcamp BtoB will report on the latest products and market trends at this year’s event as well as conducting interviews with senior management from the RV industry and OEM suppliers.

The Elkhart RV Open House will showcase the latest innovations and technological advancements, from sleek motorhomes and cozy trailers to cutting-edge camper vans and luxurious fifth wheels. Additionally, the event provides a platform for suppliers to exhibit their products and services. RV components, accessories, and aftermarket solutions are also on display, allowing manufacturers to source high-quality materials and technologies.

The event is traditionally held during the last week of September as it is good timing for manufacturers to introduce their new models for the upcoming year.

Elkhart has long been considered the ‘RV capital of the world’. The city’s legacy to the RV industry dates back to the early 20th century when it started as a center for manufacturing horse-drawn vehicles. Over the years, Elkhart’s expertise and craftsmanship expanded into the booming RV industry, solidifying its reputation as a hub of innovation and production.

The local infrastructure, skilled workforce, and a network of suppliers have been instrumental in attracting RV manufacturers to establish their headquarters and production facilities in the region. As a result, Elkhart has become a vibrant community with a strong RV industry presence, making it the ideal place to host the Open House Week.

Dealers from all over the USA attend the event to build relationships with manufacturers, negotiate deals, and plan their inventory for the upcoming year.
