Thousands flock to Utah RV show

Appearing recession proof, the 44th Annual RV Show in Sandy, Utah was more than well attended over the weekend.

About 35,000 adults and children flocked to the 44th Annual RV Show in Sandy, Utah, just south of Salt Lake City over the weekend. Sixteen RV dealers statewide showcased recreational vehicles.

The 300 campers, trailers, and motor homes ranged in price from $10,000 to $200,000, and they ranged in size from two-sleeper fifth wheels to bus-sized motor homes.

Although many of the vehicles boasted earth-toned interiors, flat screen TVs, and roomy bathrooms, there weren't any big surprises. Several of the luxury RVs offered washer-dryer connections, electric fireplaces, vacuum units, and ceiling fans--one model had a built-in icemaker, that was a little different.

Also, there were a big offering of motor homes and trailers that doubled as toy-haulers.
