Everyone's trailers are so clean and shiny! I'd be too embarrassed to go to a rally with what mine looks like at the moment!

Looks like it was grand weather and a lot of fun!

Hi Morgyn, weather was good and as you mentioned quite a bit of fun was had along with some great info on restoring and maintaining these various campers. Please do not worry about how clean or or shiny yours may be as the great thing about this rally is the trailers are all in various stages of repair and restoration so no one is alone! And that includes mine which could really use some work.
Take care and see you next year!

Sorry for taking so long to update anything here. I unfortunately had to work today. Well after double checking my notes we ended up with 47 trailers and I counted 106 people at the pot luck supper. With an age range from 1 year old to 80 years young. Great weather and even better company. Thanks must go out to all who attended and also to all who helped with the pancake breakfast. Thanks to Ian G for doing the Bearing Repack and Brake Demo. Very informative and I even learned a few things.

To those of you that did not attend because you thought your trailer would not fit in, please come out anyway. We have had campers in all states of repair from bare shells that were see through at night when the lights were on, LOL @ Luc, to all done. Get out there and use your camper, please do not think it needs to be prefect to go camping and to show it off. An empty shell shows the rest of use what is underneath and where to start from. Been there done that.

Now I just need to remember how to post some pics.

Rick

Thanks for posting the link Glenn, I am trying to find all the links of the 5 or so interviews I did on the weekend at the Rally and will post them all once I find them. I went into a customers office yesterday and was told that he never met a celebrity before. LOL. I guess I am Famous now. And so are all the other great people that got interviewed. Thanks to all that did get involved in the interviews. I did notice a number of Fiberglass campers pop up on Kijiji since and the asking prices are going up. That can be a bad thing or a good thing depending on who you are. The word is out there. It is time to get them all out of storage and start using them. No matter what shape they are in, use it in the summer and see what works and what needs repair or changing in the fall and next spring. Make them your own.

Get them ready for the 6th Annual Fiberglass and Vintage Camper Rally the 3rd weekend of August 2015

More media

Steinbach Online and Steinbach 1250 AM radio have posted a nice article with a video interview and a longer radio interview (just look to the right column to play the audio interview with Jack Klick), taken during the St. Malo get-together last weekend.

The same story and interviews that appeared today on Steinbachonline are also on PembinaValleyOnline.com - Local news, Weather, Sports, Free Classifieds and Business Listings for PembinaValley, Manitoba

There was an item on the CBC national news on Saturday, which played across the country. I can no longer find the video for it. If you find the full video for the August 16, 2014 The National newscast, the item is at the 18 minute mark of the newscast.
