BC RV Show

The RV Show and Sale in Abbotsford is BC’s biggest recreational vehicle trade show. The Earlybird event is in February and the Snowbird event is in September.

In 2022 the Snowbird RV Show takes place at the TRADEX Centre on September 29th to October 2nd.


Snowbird RV Show & Sale

The Snowbird RV Show and Sale is the one and only fall recreational vehicle show in British Columbia. The event is for anyone interested in the RV lifestyle. It’s a massive show that covers over 120,000 square feet of space.

The event features dozens of recreational vehicles to explore, including many of the newest models on the market. At the Snowbird RV Show and Sale you can walk inside the vehicles and even purchase one if interested. The show also features exhibitor booths full of information and smaller products, including specific vehicle accessories and cookware. In 2022 there is a stage for seminars as well. At it guests can enjoy helpful demonstrations and travel tips.

One of the main featured RV dealers at the event is Fraserway RV. The company recently partnered with a large American dealer in a $100 million deal. Now more than ever, Fraserway RV is one of the best places to rent or buy recreational vehicles. Highlights of their impressive inventory are showcased at the Snowbird RV Show and Sale. What’s more? They have a Contest where you can win a travel trailer worth over $60,000! See below for details.
