It's been a long winter for many in North Dakota, but inside the Alerus Center in Grand Forks there was proof that spring is finally on its way.

It is a family tradition, something that has been going on for generations. And those at the Alerus center say they want it to continue.

Hundreds packed the Alerus Center for the Budget RV Show to take a look at what their summer might bring, family time out on the open road.

RVs of all shapes and sizes, dozens of floor plans and all price ranges are available.

And while many around the country are continuing to struggle because of the economy it appears that here in North Dakota that is not a factor.

"Talking with our reps at ten shows around the country this year is tremendously gotten better over last year. The attendance has been well received all around people are buying, the banks are lending," says Mike Johnson/Budget RV.

The show wraps up tomorrow, March 14th, as do the sales. Doors open at eleven and it is free and open to the public.
