Welcome OneTim

My wife and I will attend this rally and we are newbies as well. I will have my new "not yet received" Lil Snoozy and will be glad to share with you what little I know. My impression is that the purpose of FRV is to share information and to help enhance each others experience.
I have found this site very helpful and look forward to this rally (my first) as a learning experience. After camping and traveling extensively for 31 years in the same pop-up tent trailer, I finally ordered a new trailer. My search began about 4 years ago for what I wanted to be the ideal trailer for my wife and I. Prior to finding out about this site and these rallys last August, information was very difficult to come by. It took me all of those 4 years to see most of my options in trailers and there are still at least two that I have not seen up close and personal. After those 4 years I still was unable to make a decision on which trailer would meet all of my needs for the rest of my camping/traveling days. After a few months conversing with people on this site and one final trip to see the last of the trailers I had narrowed my selection to, I ordered my trailer. Without this site and the people here willing to share information, I may have been undecided 4 more years from now. So see you at our first Rally and ask all the questions you want.

OneTim, it will be great to have you. This group is very friendly and loves to talk about their rigs. So bring questions and look forward to good food and company. You may even find someone about to sell their trailer.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Don and Brenda

I'm planning to show up, from Wilmington.NC, with my new ParkLiner. My question is: Is there a special word or phrase to use to secure a discount? I punched up the website and was shown $54.94 p/night, a little more than $35-40...?

Hi Jim,

My Escape 19 should be ready/delivered in May. I've reserved site #171 (yes, it is a pull through - I don't know how much practice backing I'll get before the rally)

Wow, Lisa, Colorockiesfan. Congrats, you went from "looking" to an Escape 19. Nice job! I am also a Colorado Rockies fan...if you talking baseball or the Mountains that is. Went to Colorado State Univ. Looking forward to seeing you at the rally

Hi Don, it's a very small world! I worked at CSU for almost 10 years! And I'm also a huge fan of both the Mtns and the team (Walker was my favorite Rocky). Love the Broncos and the Avs as well.

Decided to go for my dream trailer and the Escape 19 was it. We only live once!

See you at the rally. We'll talk baseball, the Mountains and Colorado!

Lisa, Very small world, I worked there too in the Office of Community Services, Service Learning, and Then in the College Access office with Upward Bound and Educational Talent Search.

I have not had Fat Tire in 4 years, Can't find it anywhere. If you could locate some and bring it, I will pay good money.

Oh, and Your New Escape 19 will get lots of attention, we had one attend last year and everyone was wanting a look at it. It is a fantastic camper, we are still considering one.....but years away, we are about to payoff our casita and love the idea of no payment.

Looking forward to meeting you,

Don and Brenda

Jim,
I have been a fiberglass trailer owner for about 5 years now- I had a Trillium which I fixed up and sold for a 84 Fiberstream. I went from PA to Oregon to get it!!! It was a 5600 mile trip, but sooo worth it! I am now upgrading my fiberstream and believe this is the trailer for me! I don't think I would sell it for the world! I have some interest in these Rallys, but my question is: what do people do at these Rallys? I am anxious to see other peoples' custom upgrades and such to their trailers, but feel wierd about camping with a bunch of strangers. Any enlightment would be very helpful. Thank you.

A rally is an excuse to go camping and use your rv. It is an opportunity to meet other fg owners and members of the forum here. It is a chance to see what modifications others have done and ask questions or help. It is a chance to meet strangers who may become friends. We will share a pot luck dinner and you will have a chance to taste some new food or drink. I went to a Casita & Friends rally last month in Myrtle Beach and had some "Frogmore Stew" for the first time.

Cindy, just remember that saying, "strangers are friends you have not been introduced to" and that may help you camp with strangers. Try to get a site near me and I'll make sure you will not feel like a stranger. I'll get some name tags for everyone and introduce you every chance if that will help you feel more comfortable. If on the other hand that may make you feel uncomfortable, let me know. either way you can observe or participate, but both requires that you attend.

Jim, beautifully put!

Cyndi, I'm a newbie to fiberglass trailers, trailer camping, and this will be my first rally. Although, like you, I'm a bit apprehensive (because I'm a bit introverted in groups), I am really looking forward to this chance to meet others who also love fiberglass trailers and camping. We already share a common bond and I'm sure we'll find much more to like about everything else and everyone else as well. As Jim said, we can participate as little or as much as we want. AND, we always have our trailers to hide in if things get a bit overwhelming!

As per your question, I don't know what they do. I will find out as this will be my first rally. I hope to do some bicycling, something we almost always do when we camp, meet some new friends, drink some beer, and get some ideas on how to equip our new trailer for convenience.
As far as strangers go, every where I go I meet strangers with the hope I meet strangers that add fullfeellment to my life. Sometimes I'm disappointed, but not often.

Eggcitement Pot Luck dinner,
I am aware of at least three attendees who will be bringing their Cobb cookers, so I'm planning on trying something new with mine for the Saturday potluck. I'm going to make a three meat/three bean chili on my Cobb. Recipe is unknown yet as I have never made it before but I love cooking and trying new things. Those other Cobb owners, feel free to add something, Nick you bringing those southern "bangers" with you? Anyone else bringing something native to their region, please feel free to post. thanks.
Just wanted to whet some taste buds now!!

Our first rally was our first camping trip after we purchased our Casita in 2009. We decided to travel from upstate NY to Tenessee for the Eggfest in Townsend. We had never been to a rally and never been to Tenessee. We were a little apprehensive as well, but had such a great time we made the trip again in 2010. Last year we decided to stay closer to home and joined Jim and his group in PA. That rally was wonderful as well! This year we are attending both. We have always found people to be friendly and welcoming. We've met people with common interests (I like crafts, my husband plays music), and people with interesting stories to tell.

As for what to do..it's always fun to see other people's campers and get ideas for everything from modifications, to decorating ideas, to easy camping recipes. The pot lucks are fun, and an easy way to get to know people. Other than that, we do what we do on any camping trip. We visit the local sites, enjoy the amenities of the campground, read, take walks, and chat with our fellow campers.

We would love to have you join us Cyndi, and hopefully this will be the first of many rallys for you!

This sounds good! And awesome to see brands at this rally. Sure beats RV shows that never have fiberglass rvs! And this is like three hours from us. So, gotta have to wait till my wife comes home and I will have a talk with her to come to this one. We do not even have our own FG trailer yet. Hopefully we do and then hopefully we can attend. Would there be any trailers for sale ever at one of those rallys? Just a thought.
