The International Rally fee includes your parking, nightly entertainment, and use of the conference facilities (workshops and seminars). The basic International Rally fee does not include any meals for member attendees. Most years, there will be a picnic meal available on July 4th . . . during the annual parade . . . this is a catered meal for which a ticket must be purchased several days in advance at the rally. There are numerous catered meals while attending the rally, but you must purchase tickets for these . . . included among these banquets are unit banquets, state banquets, regional banquets, and intra-club banquets (Vintage Airstream Club, Free Wheelers, Computer Club, etc.) -- these are all optional at extra-cost activities.

The International Rally also affords you the opportunity to meet a number of the well-known Airstream vendors from whom we purchase products. While not all of these vendors are in attendance at every International, some of the vendors you might find include: Arlene and Henry Fowler of Fowler RV Interiors, Vintage Trailer Supply, Hensley Manufacturing, Pro-Pride Hitches, Blue Ox Hitches, Reese Products, Dometic, Zip Dee, JPA Drapes, Fantastic Vent (they offer Rally installation specials where I have purchased all three of my Fantastic Vents), as well as several others. There have also been vendors who offer flags, custom embroidery work, specialized RV hoses, specialized electrical reels, and a wide variety of other RV specific merchandise in the main exhibit hall at the International rallys.

Since Sedalia is so close to me, I am hoping to make the trip, but there are too many unknowns at this point in time to know whether the trip will be economically feasible. I have only missed three International Rallys since 1998, and find that they are much like attending large family reunions . . . . I almost always get to visit with friends whom I haven't seen for two or three years.

I assume you're a Vintage club member that alone is worth the cost, just park with that group, it will all come together.

Rallies

The Good Sam Club is having three major rallies this year. One in Phoenix, one in Louisville, and one in Daytona. Price is $219 for dry camping and $419 for 30/50amp. We attended the Louisville, Ky Rally two years ago with a group of airstreamers and had a great time. Over 3000 units in attendance, 100's of vendors and displays. Good entertainment a lot of quality seminars and the Louisville expo center is all air conditioned. This may be a great place to have an Air Forum Rally??

You may want to look at how many days those rallies run?

As in 3-4 days??????? or about $100 a day?

I think the international runs 10 days or $50 a day

a couple years ago I broke down good sam, escapees and a few others allowing for the number of days. Seven days for the International if you come in with general parking.
All were considerably cheaper than the international, and in the case of the GS rally mentioned above in Louisville it was also big name entertainment and many more vendors ( We almost went to that one).
Note also that many of these lower cost rallies are held at the same locations the WBCCI uses
Based on a 7day international you are looking at $71.00 a day. This is pretty pricey for no meals and questionable entertainment and a dwindling number of vendors. I do miss seeing many of our friends, especially in the VAC but I suspect we will run across most of you at other rallies.

I actually count the number of nights, 4 in june 3 in july as most leave on the fourth. If you stay over the night of the fourth then it would be 8 which would be $62.50 a day, or nite if you prefer.
If you allow $15.00 a night for camping that means the rest is $47.50 per day for the rest and you don't even get any meals.

LI PETS, we have to be in Sedalia on June 23rd this year. By my counting method, if we stay until and including July 4th, is 12 days.
If one comes the day of opening ceremonies, the 27th, days counted are 7 to July 4th.
