Like Old Home Week

OK, I did. I stopped on the way to work to catch a couple of photos. So sue me!


So this morning I am back at work. This is the weekend of the big RV show in Toronto and most of the crew is down catching all the buyers they can at the International Center in Mississauga.

That leaves me and a couple of other experienced RV guys to man the fort.

I haven’t worked this time of year for 10 years but I certainly still have the memories. It   used to be really painful. There are some RV’s being sold, but you can also go for a few days without talking to  a buyer or even a tire kicker.  It’s at this time of year that my stress level used to be the highest. Now, it’s a break for the retired life, an excuse to get out of the house. I’m guessing Marilyn is enjoying the break as well.

I’ve been here for a couple of hours already and haven’t even looked at any RV’s, but I am having a great time talking to my “work friends” most of whom I haven’t seen since September.

OK, I’m here to sell an RV or two. I should pay attention.

I walk the yard; It’s nicely plowed with easy access to their massive inventory but it’s just not the same as heading down a trail somewhere. I wonder what’s new in the showroom?

I started in the RV business in 1978 and I can assure you things have changed a bunch in this industry. Here’s a video on a 35′ travel trailer toy hauler. Did I mention it has a patio? I think it’s pretty cool. What do you think?

Doesn’t that look like fun? No, we are not trading in Putt-Putt.

Not even for this one:

As you can see, it’s not a busy day.

Good, that gives me a chance to practice shooting and editing video.

  1. Hi Larry,

    I like the Grand Tour. When can you have it ready to go? Financing might be a slight problem though.

  2. I agree Terry. I agree on both counts; I like the motorhome, and financing is a BIG problem for us too.
