Title: Quartzsite rv show
Post by: henkelphoto on August 29, 2017, 11:13:18 AM
Hi guys,

A friend of mine will be spending the winter in Quartzsite this year and he's invited me to join him for a few days during the huge rv show there in January. I would like to bring my camper down so as not to be a burden on him but am wondering if I'll be able to find a spot in the BLM area to place my camper when I arrive in late January. Being that it's a dry camp, I will want to use my generator and don't want to be too close to others who will probably be using their generators also. What's the thoughts?

Also, are there a lot of campers to look at, or is it mostly a parts and chachkies type of thing?

As far as space, there's a whole desert around town and lots of places to stay. As far as a lot of RVs on display, it all depends on your point of view. There are quite a few. The Big Tent appears to have been taken over by flea market vendors, but it's worth seeing, if you've never been there.

This forum has a get together there every year during the RV show week. We'll probably be there again this year.

From our forum library, here's some info on Quartzsite (http://www.rvforum.net/joomla/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=120:the-quartzsite-experience&catid=19&Itemid=132). Invite all your RVing friends, there'll be plenty of room for you all.

With thousands of BLM acres, finding space to park is not a problem!  You can join the RV Forum group at Road/Section 541 which is two miles south of town on the west side of U.S. 95.  We usually have anywhere from 20-50 rigs in our area.  It's fun to put names to faces and there are a lot of knowledgeable people who are willing to help newbies.
