HERSHEY, Pa. — Welcome to Hershey, Pa., a place where the aroma of new RVs, melted chocolate and autumn ragweed blend together at America’s Largest RV Show. It’s easy to see why Hershey is dubbed “The Sweetest Place on Earth,” but if you’re among the 50 million Americans who suffer from allergies each year, the latter aroma may not be so appealing. (Expect to notice ragweed allergic reactions on cool nights and warm, windy days with morning seeing the highest counts.) Fortunately for this year’s allergy goers, RV Air will be making its first-time appearance at the Hershey show!

RV Air is responsible for introducing a revolutionary air filter that has made its way into Walmart and Camping World stores throughout the United States. The filters are also available online at Amazon.com and RVAir.com, and while you’re at the Hershey show, you can pick up your own set at Booth #115 in the Giant Center Rink. RV Air is running a $10 show special during the Sept. 11-15 show. (Typically, these filters cost roughly $20 at retail stores.)

This patent pending air filter system captures particles as small as 3-10 microns, including dust, pollen, mold spore and other allergens, like Pennsylvania ragweed. The newest generation of RV Air filters feature a MERV 8 rating thanks to 40 layers of unwoven polyester that are sprayed with an anti-microbial tackifier to capture microscopic particles.

Simply put, less contaminants will pass through a filter with a higher MERV rating. And while a MERV rating can range from 1-16, super high ratings can restrict airflow and be taxing on RV air conditioners, which is why RV Air strives for a MERV 8 rating. Less than $20, it’s a small price to pay for truly fresh air.

Even if you’re planning on buying a new RV, you’ll want to stock up on these filters. While any of Hershey’s 1,400 “new home on wheels” may check off a lot of items on camping wish lists, the stock filters found in most new RVs are only designed to keep debris out of the cooling unit, not out of interiors. In fact, these filters, which utilize a thin black polypropylene filter, similar to the filter found on a hair dryer, do little to help purify the air, especially in regions laden with allergens, so be sure to stop by RV Air’s booth.

During the show, you can meet RV Air Owners Eddie and Rose Rice, who can tell you about their Big Bend National Park adventure and how that one allergy-filled road trip took them down the path to inventing their one-of-a-kind RV air filter. (You can also read about their story at ReserveAmerica.com, where RV Air have been featured.)
