FRV Members within reasonable driving distance

Of course not all these people have fiberglass trailers but all or have been members of FRV. It provides a first order estimate, about 1600 members.

Speaking of PEI, the Vintage Fiberglass Rally is in PEI next Summer and that's a fun rally.

Date and location are always the major items that affect how many participants there will be at a rally. We are already booked for 3 in 2017, but none are fiberglass trailer related. One is a teardrop rally, although others attend, and the other two are vintage camper rallies. They are always at the same time of year and the same location, so plans can be made way in advance. A couple years ago I tried to set up a Uhaul specific rally after many voiced a desire to have one in NY, only two showed up besides us. Best bet is to pick a date and location as far ahead as possible so those poor souls that are not retired can plan their vacation time. This year we attended the Schodack Island rally, but only by leaving another rally early and arriving a couple days late at Schodack. Fortunately Schodack is only half hour from home.

I never heard of the Shodack Rally. That's a lovely area and I would have been interested.

We only heard about it a short time ahead, a month or so. It was at Schodack Island State Park NY. The park is on the Hudson River and has been there for some time but the campground is new. Bathrooms are new, and they are nice!! Sites are NOT on the water and the river is not visible from the campsites. It's just a few minute walk to the river where there is a boat launch and picnic area. There was talk of doing it again next year.

Back on track

Went to local campground yesterday in the Western Hills of Maine. In Brownfield, to see if they could accomidate a rally but the owners were not there but I will go back.
May go over the border into NH and talk to an owner I know over there to see what he can do for us
I will then get the ball rolling on the proper pages.

We went to a rally in TX where every site had two Fiberglass trailers sharing water and electricity, making it easy for the Campground.

I see that at several rallies. Several campgrounds have been convinced to allow it. Of course it's good for their bottom line and usually works well with our small trailers.

I'm not a fiberglass owner (yet) but would love to see a rally here in Maine. I'm in Portland.

We do a vintage rally twice every year where the campground allows two trailers per site. We do not double up, or agree with it. The sites are small so the tow vehicles would have to be parked off site, and since most of the vintage campers don't have bathrooms, doubling the normal amount of trailers (and people) that would be there otherwise overloads the campgrounds' one and only bath house facility.

Every year we meet and exchange camping, in early September, when the great holiday season is over.
This year, 2016, we gathered 169 shells, Boler, Trillium, Bigfoot, Scamp, name it ...
We also should be several 2 by land.
We have an open door day, interested peoples to show their arrangements.

You can see some videos and pictures on the following link:

Bolerama 2016 - Le coin du campeur

Next year the meeting is the Mount Pleasant campground, Lac Saint-Jean :

Camping Mont-Plaisant

I will soon identify information about the map of the rallys Fiberglass'RV.

Someday we might make it when we retire in 4 years, that is, if you accept a 28' Bigfoot, and you promise to speak Parisian French or Anglais. I can only pick out a few words of Quebecquois. We honeymooned in Quebec so many years ago, and I only understood 2 people, the woman who told me her hotel was clean (but we found it damp to the point of nasty!) and the guy who was pan-handling at Hotel Frontenac who I asked to speak slowly .

There is already a Bigfoot 25 'which comes in the group.
There are more great sites to accommodate ...
Many people are bilingual, that is not the majority but is certainly o.k. for a conversation.
In terms of the speed of speech, there are comedians who speak French fast enough, I do not understand myself ... Lol
