    You should be able to park it somewhere out there I should think... the expo center is huge. Maybe they might charge you more to park..? I dunno...

    Thnxs,, I have only parked in front with my car, where you pay to go through the gate, did not ever recall seeing any r.v. parking in front, I guess I would just continue down the road on the left at entrance to the back of the buildings?,,,:thumbup:

    Yes, that's where they were, I was there last month. I hope it's not just for the vendors...

    Is this show worth going to for someone looking for good deals on antique firearms..ie pre 1899 Mausers, revolvers and such?

    You're posting in a stale thread. The next gun show at the Expo center will be on the 20th, 21st, and 22nd of March.

    No problem, I didn't want you to show up at the expo and wonder where everybody was.

    If you intend to stay over, there is lots of parking for RVs and product trailers behind the Expo center, and many vendors do camp there in RVs. The entry gate people who take the parking fees do not know who is a reserved vendor and who is not---all vendors have "reservations" but most have not paid their fees yet and do not have event badges when they enter the gate. It is normal for some vendors to not show up until Saturday morning. Pay for the remaining weekend of parking (even vendors must pay) and ask where the RV parking area is, and they will direct you to it. I think you will need to be self-contained though, as I do not remember seeing any portable toilets provided and there are no cafe`s or stores on the property. After the show closes at night all vendors are locked OUT until eightish the next morning. Several clean restrooms are available for freshening-up in the morning---but no coffee for sale!

    If you phrase it right you will not even have to lie about being a vendor at the gate. Just ask, "which way to the vendor parking?" before they can ask you!.....................elsullo
