This is always a fun laid back show, and will be the first under the new regime since Bob Brown retired last year.

I am hoping to see a bunch of you guys down there this weekend! We upgraded the stereo in the rdp trailer a bit ;) courtesy of Kicker as usual!

Come down have some beers and we will be offering some discounts on various shirts! I have a ton of XXXL and XXXXL that we ordered earlier this season that I’d like to sell before we go into winter!

If you need to stock-up on some offroad accessories, this is the place to do it. Also a nice selection of new pontoons and wakesport boats. A couple of large boat dealers will be present and they say their pricing will be end of the year aggressive. Also going to have some nice RVs and motorhomes to look at too. This coming Friday and Saturday at Lake Havasu State Parrk, Windsor 3 & 4 -- over 165 exhibitors. Admission only $8 for adults, kids 6 & under free -- parking is free too.

So where is this exactly? Is this on the island or down by the Holiday Inn? Or further up by industrial?

Windsor 4.. So just north of your usual main Windsor launch ramp. Head down London bridge road from 95 and it will be immediately on your left opposite of Cha-Bones.

Great show, we enjoy it every year.

The Expo is at Lake Havasu State Park, Windsor 3 & 4 -- the entrance is at the corner of London Bridge Road and Paso del Sol (between Motel 6 and Hampton Inn). And the Expo is Friday and Saturday (not Sunday as I mistakenly posted in a previous post.

I am happy that you are still staying somewhat active with regard to the shows. I know you retired, but it is a testament to how much work and love you put into them. I hope to see you this weekend!

I saw it earlier this week, but too late for me to make changes in my schedule to attend. Am I one of the only few that make commitments "2 weeks" in advance?
I'd go crazy.... It drives my wife nuts...but I rarely make any plans until day before or a handful of days prior. I don't like to be constricted lol

I could tell you today that I am working Christmas next year. I don't always like the schedule I keep, I just succumb to it. And then I cry when I feel like I am missing out on fun stuff. I sure make up for it tho on other times when I plan ahead. ;)

I heard from one of my buddies that has a booth that’s it’s dead dead dead. Hardly anyone at the show today. Why they decided to do Friday/Saturday and not do Sunday? Most people are at work and haven’t made it to the river for thanksgiving yet. I don’t get it.

Having it on the same weekend as the Baja race could have small impact, however I think you are more on point with your assumption that most families will not be in town for both weekends. I would hope maybe it kept the cost down for vendors by only doing two days, but I doubt it.

Was very dead, and seemed to have way less vendors than normal. RD’s stereo wasn’t turned up very loud when we were there but, sounded super clean with nice lows rolling out.
