RV Vacations to Air Shows


There aren’t many sights more beautiful than the glimpse of a silver wing flashing through the clouds. American air shows give aircraft lovers a chance to see much more than a glimpse. Many of the top shows offer several days of demonstrations, workshops and, of course, hundreds (or even thousands) of fascinating planes. Here are the details of just five of the hundreds of air shows held each year in the US:

  • The granddaddy of them all is EAA’s AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. During the last week of July and first week of August each year, AirVenture hosts thousands of commercial, military and experimental planes. This show is the perfect RV camping destination for families who love airplanes. RV campsites are available on-site with early reservations, and thousands of other campsites are located nearby. Fly in to our conveniently located Chicago El Monte RV Rentals location to pick up a luxurious motorhome for your trip.

  • The Sun n’ Fun Airshow in Lakeland, Florida is a multi-day fly-in event with amazing activities for every age group. Bring the whole family in your RV rental from El Monte RV Rentals’ Orlando location. Enjoy beautiful central Florida as you stroll from one aviation-oriented event to another during this April air show.

  • MCAS Miramar Air Show held on base at the Marine Corps Air Station is a huge annual event in the San Diego area. More than half a million visitors come to see the best in military aircraft during this three day event in October. If you’re coming to Miramar, fly into San Diego and pick up your RV at El Monte RV Rentals’ Santee, CA location.

  • Another air show sponsored by the Experimental Aircraft Association is held in Broomfield, Colorado every August. The Colorado Sport International Air Show draws more than twenty thousand sport aircraft aficionados. You’ll find a full line of recreational vehicles to rent for your trip at our El Monte RV Rentals Denver office.

  • Regional military air shows are also a fantastic way to see plenty of aviation excitement. Most large air bases hold public events each year to showcase military aircraft.

  • Known as "America's Ambassadors in Blue", the Thunderbirds do shows throughout the year in cities all across America.  Check out our rv rentals locations map for a rental location near one of their events.

  • The Blue Angels serve as positive role modes for the Navy and Marines.  Although based in Pensacola, Florida, they fly in shows all over the United States.
