Please see the attached flyer explaining the program and for instructions for making an appointment to get your truck/rig weighed.

Advance registration is required, you may register starting today...see the attached brochure.
Chuck.......I just want make sure about registration. Is it required that we call Escapees now or can we register for weighing when we arrive at the campground? We will be arriving on Monday afternoon, August 3.

Thanks.

The brochure says you can register onsite. As I see it there should be no problem waiting.

Spoke with the campground yesterday, we are at 54 rigs, thats almost double what we had last year!!!

The campground is in need of sites for other obligations so asked if we could release the ones not reserved yet, I asked and they agreed to hold our sites until July 11th so if you are thinking of attending and haven't made your reservation yet, you need to do so quickly!!

As a reminder, the rally will kick-off at 3:00pm EDT on Thursday the 6th so please try to arrive in time to get setup before then.

To reserve your site it is best to call: Shipshewana Campground - South Park 260-768-4669

Not really a rally post but only intended for the rally goers so I'll post here.
As we all know the Marathon 16"E's are garbage and that is why I replaced them so now I have 4 and will keep one so I have two spares so.... I have 3 more with under 1000 miles on them and thought I would offer them if anyone needs one to have for an extra spare tire. If you do, please let me know and I will bring to the rally and would $45.00 each be to much to ask?

Steve

I would take them anyway and if they don't sell you can put them in the bonfire.

New Roof

We are anxious to attend this year's rally. We thought we would need to cancel when we got blasted by some hail while up at Mount Rushmore recently.
But due to some creative work with metal duct tape and caulking, we are nice and dry.
It was determined that we would need to replace the roof material on the unit to ensure we wouldn't have any problems. This is the busiest time of the dear for the service departments around the country and we're looking at a minimum of 3 weeks down time.
We are full timers and were faced with a decision. Replace or repair.
We found RV Armour company would come to the campsite, inspect and repair any areas where the rubber is coming loose and blistering (some of which were there from day one), then install a roof that is guaranteed for the life of the trailer. All this in two days...a no brainer for us.
To make a long story short, we have the installation of the new roof scheduled for the same week as we are at the rally. The crew will start the process on Thursday and complete it on Friday.
If any of you are curious, just pop over to our site and have a look.
BTW, we are changing the roof color to white to help the AC's. The original tan color gets very hot and seems to radiate to the inside. Hopefully, the new color will help.
Safe travels everyone...see you at the rally.
George and Kay

Excellent Gegallant! We will be eager to hear of the experience. They should be giving you a big DISCOUNT because they will get all of that free advertising!!! We are thinking of using them to do ours too, along with our 6 year old Lance Truck Camper. Seems like a great solution. Forces you to wonder why they aren't using this at the manufacturer level. Must be cost... like everything else. GOOD LUCK! Hope it goes well!!

We are quickly approaching the date of the National Rally, I hope all who are attending are as excited as we are to meet new friends as well as see folks we met at prior rallies. We will have a record number this year, at last count we have 61 rigs registered!! This year promises to be jam packed with lots of new material, a tour of the new Redwood plant, some passionate discussion and getting to know those people you have been conversing with via forum for many months, years, to put a face and real name with those tags we use on the forums!

As a reminder, the rally will begin on Thursday afternoon so please try to arrive early. The Owners Group will host a meet-and-greet on Thursday evening and will provide some munchies, we encourage you to stop in, bring your beverage of choice and take the opportunity to get to know each other.

Friday and Saturday will be VERY busy, beginning early in the morning and continuing into the evening.

On Saturday evening the ROG will be hosting a covered dish dinner, we will be providing meat for the get together and would like to invite all attending to attend and bring something such as a vegetable, salad or dessert to share with the other attendees. In order to get an idea of how many to expect and to get an idea of what people will bring I would ask that you either post here, or send me a PM to let me know if you will participate and what you will bring.

Looking forward to a great time!!
