PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — More than 30,000 visitors are expected to see what’s new at the Pittsburgh RV Show. The show opens Saturday at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

“This is a 2015 Dutch Star Motor Home diesel pusher made by Newmar,” says Steve Parshall of Ashley RV in Duncansville.
He shows off a 43-foot home on wheels, filled with the latest technology. Push a button, and a TV appears right out of the woodwork. Another button narrows the vehicle for highway driving.
“One of the things that’s new this year,” he adds. “We have a push button awning that has LED lights built in.”
Just for the show, it’s marked down from its $404,000 price tag.

“Today we have a 2015 Keystone Alpine,” says Paul Willis of Cooper’s RV in Murrysville, showing off another trailer. It’s a rolling residence fit for all seasons.
“It gives you the feeling of full-time living with residential living, with furniture, a fireplace, large television,” Willis said.
He then shows us a brand new, two-story trailer.
“This is one of the newer, innovative, two-floor park trailers that somebody might put at a campsite,” he says.
It has a second floor bedroom, yet the trailer still fits under the ceilings of Pittsburgh’s tunnels.
