Not finding many new items in the outdoor flea market area of Quartzsite, I was anxious to see what was in the RV show at the big tent.
You could tell this is a show for retirees. The only baby strollers in sight were filled with dogs!
One new item this year was this system to raise and lower your solar panels from inside your rig. About the cost of a new panel, I didn't see the advantage, especially since the panels may be shaded by the apparatus. A far easier and cheaper way may be my "brother-in-law's" invention here.
But I did find some new items in the tent. An easy way to charge a cell phone in an emergency.
A self-standing ladder that won't tip over.
A fake cigarette that looks, feels, and tastes like a real one.
A "Magic Mat" that holds items in place without any adhesive. (I actually bought this one!)
A tiny GPS to go on your keychain so you can find your car again in the grocery store parking lot. (I told you there were old people here...)
A tiny camera on a suction cup so you can easily hook up a trailer.
LED lights were here last year, but are much brighter now.
Luggage for your pets. (This one did not have a lot of interest.)
And last but not least.....
