When the 56th Annual California RV Show rolls into Fairplex and fills up the White Ave. parking lot, you’ll have a shot at more than 1,000 RV options. In fact, you can drive in your old RV and drive out with the newest 2009 model. If you’re having trouble deciding what type of RV is best for your style of motor vacationing, RVers Joe and Vicki Kieva will conduct their popular seminar, “10 Tips for Choosing an RV” at noon every day of the show.
