I just checked the calendar for the Effingham VW show. It is June 5-6, 2010. We usually go down on Friday morning, golf at a small local course in the afternoon, and do the show on Saturday and Sunday morning. We head back to Chicago early afternoon Sunday. Here is the link to the campground we use: www.camplakewoodcampground.com
. They have wireless internet, cable hook-ups, and nice restrooms/showers. We usually try to make reservations in April and have no trouble getting a spot. You can also get information about the VW show at the Mid-America Motorworks website, under VW Funfest.
Hope your work on the trailer starts to move along again!
