Area 63 Productions will again be present for this event, with hands on workshops, how-to's, q&a, and perhaps seminars. We will be bringing one of our trailers for this event, and present real time, hands on, scrape your knuckles type seminars. Depending on our work flow at the studio, we might be bringing back the 1958 Flying Cloud we re-skinned at last years Rally. It now has new insulation, new perimeter belly skins, and all the windows are already rebuild, some with new glass. If we do brig it, then the hands-on will be DC wiring, AC wiring, and plumbing, including holding tanks.
Stay tuned to this thread for updates on this event.

Thumbs up Registration Rally

Ken J:
Hi Ken, We spend time in Texas, Colorado and New Mexico. We were thinking the 4 Corners Unit might be the right one for us. We are rebuilding our 1984 310 Ltd AS M/H and think I could find out some much needed info from the Rally. We would like to attend, so let us know.

If you would like to see the vintage Silver Hornet project go to www.starnewspub.com for the short version of the blow by blow refurb.

Thumbs up 4CU004 Vintage Restoration Rally

KenJ: Thanks for the kind words. I write for the South Plains Star covering Sports events usually. My regular column is "At the Wheel" which usually has to do with things automotive. This is an online paper for small towns in West Texas where the local papers have gone out of business.

In another vein, we are really looking forward to the Rally in June, and have made plans to be there to learn more about our Bauxite Bus. It's always enjoyable to meet new friends and learn more about the unit in the offing. And yes, I will be covering it for the paper and make daily updates about what we are doing. So you will have the press on site and working.

Mike , Mary Dee, & Chloe (our Lab)

Do you have to be a member of the WBCCI to attend this rally? Can I bring my '74 Argosy? Or does it have to be "Silver"?

Nope - all are welcome - and yes Argosy's are VERY welcome!! You have have some company - there will be other Argosy's - no it does not need to be painted silver - will take it even if its purple... - in fact you don't even need a trailer, or bring a tent (yes we've had folks with tents and sob's) - the point is for folks who love these old trailers and want to learn skills necessary to repair or even rebuild them - or if you are thinking about buying an Airstream just to see whats involved before you take it on - we promise you will learn a lot!

I don't know if I mentioned this before - we seem to always have a vintage trailer or two (think we had 3-4 last year - and I know two were sold during the rally) for sale.

OK! I'm all excited about this rally. I have the plane ticket website up and am ready to book flights. I had trouble with the campside website- it didn't have any links showing how to arrange anything with them or directions, etc. I will need a rental car, and?? anything I need to know about? What will the weather be like?

Sign me up! PLEASE :-)

Yippy yippy yeah! I think others in the past have taken some sort of shuttle - I would think the route 66 hotel/casino has a shuttle - then its just a short bike ride to the campground...

As far as the campground, call Vickie she can give you all the details about how to get to/from her place - she owns the campground and lets us take if over for a weekend each year. She - if its still available - has a Sparten trailer you can stay in for 40/night

The weather - perfect - low humidity with warm days and comfortable nights.

Sure hope you can put it together - again let us know how to make it happen.

Very good! I'll be booking the flight tonight. I'll see if I can't get a shuttle when I arrive. If not, I'll get a car- they must have them at the airport. I'll call the campground-- might be a little late now- so I'll do that in the morning. Hopefully I can grab a bunk in the Spartan.. that would be cool! The closest I have been to a Spartan is about 20 feet. There's one in a storage area off the road in S.Aug. that I pass frequently. I'll be bringing camera(s) and a notebook for sure!!

Thanks so much, and I can hardly wait!

Rae

If I remember correctly, Vickie also had a vintage Overlander that she rents out as well.
