In addition to the luxurious colossal motor homes, this year an exhibitor is bringing the Cricket, an unbelievably cute camper designed by a NASA scientist who worked on the International Space Station. The camper sets up in five minutes and can be towed almost anywhere by almost any 4-cylinder vehicle. It’s perfect for young families who want to get away from it all without having to sleep on the ground, hunters/fishers and other sportspeople, music festivalgoers and camping enthusiasts with smaller cars.

More than 275 units and 50 brands of campers, motor homes and trailers ranging in price from $6,995 to more than $600,000 will be on display. All of the vehicles will be available for tours. Plus there will be vendor booths offering parts and information on camping.

The Camper and RV Show runs Feb. 4-8, at Suburban Collection Showplace, 46100 Grand River Ave., Novi, on Grand River, south of I-96 between Novi and Beck roads. Hours are 2-9 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Saturday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $10 for adults (ages 13 and older); $9 seniors; and free for children 12 and younger.

Winnebago Forza MotorhomeWinnebago recently introduced the Forza motorhome at The Rally, the Camping World/Good Sam event held in Syracuse at the New York State Fairgrounds being held this weekend.

Thousands of RVers and enthusiasts were on-hand for the event where the Winnebago Forza made its debut. The all-new, pleasantly priced Forza is built on the Freightliner® XCS straight-rail chassis which provides a solid foundation with a Cummins 340-hp diesel engine and Allison® six-speed transmission delivering the power. Diesel pushers are known for storage and the Forza ups the ante with its Smart Storage™ design that pushes capacity even further. Inside, are fine amenities such as polished Corian® galley countertops, coffee glazed cabinetry, upscale entertainment features, and LED lighting.

Arnold and Jean Bye from Waunakee, Wisconsin loved the new Forza. “We are looking for a small diesel with a queen bed in the traditional position so we could use it without putting the slides out. We love the mid entry. We have a 40’ now and we want to downsize – this is perfect for us. We can get 8 people around the sectional table. The side swing doors allow easy access to great storage for a small unit. I also love the passenger seat with the table for all my maps and the laptop.
