The large double and triple slide TC's were represented in Seattle. Although the Host was a ways off from the other campers, it had constant foot traffic even though I think the $50k+ pricing of these large TC's scares many away from purchasing one. Seattle's show is quite diverse and there were plenty of $200K+ motorhomes and $100k+ toyhaulers that also got plenty of attention. I don't know how many of the larger units sold verses the smaller since we went on a weekday early on in the show, but the RV industry has rebounded and attendance was healthy for a work day.
Something I noticed this year was that there were less people looking at Class C's even though there were a good number of them. Maybe there were enough that the crowds dispersed between them. Class B's were popular, but their $100K+ prices were frequently being discussed. From my observation, people were looking closely at both ends of the money and size spectrum and less at the mid sized units.
