Women travelling alone

Ok, here are a bunch of links on single women RVers, their clubs, etc. if you are going to fulltime you might check the escapees webpage. They have subgroups and I know have a singles sub group.

Here is a link to Sisters on the Fly a cool looking bunch of women who RV together and their vintage trailers are pretty great.

Cheers John

Here is a much better link to the Sisters on the Fly web site. Photo Gallery (Click on CARAVAN TRAILERS). The web site wasn't working when I sent the previous post about them. Their trailers are a hoot.
Cheers John

Donna, I would suggest that one of the first things you should do is attend a fiberglass trailer rally in your area. There are a lot more single women pulling trailers out there than what you may think. At our BC meets roughly 20/25% of those who attend are females who own their own trailers. Thats how I got hooked up with a group of about 12 women who camp together regularly and sometimes travel together in smaller numbers. If you dont know how to fix something its a good bet someone in the group does and will have the tool to fix it with them and they know how to use it. Our little group has on more than one occasion helped out a male camper in distress over a trailer problem they have as well.

Should warn you though there are pit falls to meeting up in groups as females. The stuff you need to bring on such group outings tends to get a little out of control in order to keep up with the elaborate lighting and camp table place settings etc. The occasional tow upgrade has been known to be need in order to haul all the extras.

Unlike the "Sisters" our little group doesnt have numbers or graphics on our trailers but there are other clues that you have found us if you ever head out to the Pacific Northwest on either side of the border. If you see a group of 7 or more fiberglass trailers all in the same camp ground and some of the owners are wearing somewhat unconventional camping foot wear its a good bet you have found us. Below is a sample of what to look for. This was the footwear of choose during a rain storm and the group was keeping a watchful eye out for a problem bear in the campground

I did notice that and wondered about it. I don't like to join groups for the most part (not that they would take ME), but maybe it is not too much for someone who would get a lot out of joining such a group. And yet didn't I see they had around 3000 members? $60 x 3,000 = $180,000. Maybe I should start a club!

Cheers Johnnie - your "sister" with a beard

Emily, the fee is to cover their overhead costs of organizing the meet ups. They need to pay for their web service for one thing but I suspect they are also required as most meet up type groups do to carry liability insurance as well. Unfortunately we living in a world where its best for anyone who organizes meet ups to carry liability insurance. Over the past year I have attended a few trailer meets where each trailer had to pay up to $20 to cover the insurance costs to the organizers. Becoming pretty common when the meets are held a private campgrounds or fairgrounds as the owners of the facility make it a requirement for using their facility.

I know someone who was an early member of SOTF and the membership fee became an issue when it wasnt explained where the money was going. They have several rules that would keep me away. NO PETS....they are a fun group to visit if you find them rallying near you.

This has been an issue for several years at the Oregon Gatherings.

I filled in for Nancy one year in organizing the Oregon Gathering in July. I acted as a liaison with the Oregon Parks Ranger at Bullard's Beach State Park. Nancy had been negotiating waivers of their Liability Insurance requirements which were quite steep... I seem to remember a figure in the neighborhood of $500,000.00 coverage needed for each site occupied by a gathering participant. I have no idea what the premium on that would be for a 4 day gathering of more than 100 sites. Paid in advance, of course.

We have been getting waivers, but the ranger said that at some point he won't be allowed to grant them anymore by his supervisors.

OK, I will show my ignorance. What is the purpose of this ins.? Why does a group need it and a single RVer doesn't?
Cheers John
