Fun Town RV, the largest RV retail chain in Texas, will host what it describes as “The Nation’s Biggest RV Party” at AT&T Stadium in Dallas April 19-21. Fun Town says hundreds of RVs will be placed inside the stadium, marking the first event of its kind in stadium history.
Fun Town says the event will give visitors the chance to shop towable RVs from five manufacturers, 32 brands and more than 100 of the latest models and floor-plans.
"We wanted to do something more than just a normal RV show,” says Fun Town owner and CEO Jarrod McGhee. “In fact, I believe that no one should ever have to pay to shop for a RV ever again. This event should be considered an RV Party. That is why we are offering free parking, free admission, door prizes and family fun for all. It is our privilege to host the RV community, the Cowboys Nation and everyone in the great State of Texas and to have the chance to show them why they should become a part of the Fun Town family.”
"The Cowboys have helped make this event special with player autograph sessions, ultimate fan experiences, Rowdy (Cowboys mascot) and cheerleaders available to interact with everyone during the party.” McGhee says. “Anytime you get the chance to partner with a world class organization like the Dallas Cowboys and the Jones family it is an honor and a privilege. The fact that our company that started in 2010 with a very humble beginnings and has now grown to an organization that can host an event like this, with a venue like AT&T stadium makes me as proud as I can be.”
The show runs from 10 - 8 on April 19th and 20th and 10 - 6 on April 21st.
