Set up camp
Park yourself at the Maryland Recreational Vehicle Show to see a selection of campers, trailers and motor homes this weekend and next at the Maryland State Fairgrounds. Survey the latest 1999 RVs; experience the luxuries many of the deluxe vehicles, including class-A motor homes and travel trailers, have to offer; and browse the less expensive models, including truck inserts and tent campers. This Saturday and Sunday, you can also see racer Dale Jarrett's NASCAR-driven Ford.
