The term "3-Amp power" is just customary terminology used to indicate that several trailers may be sharing a single 120 V, 20 Amp circuit.
Thanks Nuvite for clarifying. I am new at this and take it literally. I aM looking forward to coming.

What is the rules on visiting a rally? I live fairly close but my AS is not ready to be camped in yet. I would like to take the family to check it out..

You are welcome. There is a charge for meals or evening entertainment.

The schedule is posted at floridastaterally.org. I would recommend visiting during the Vintage Open House, Saturday from Noon to 4.

Question on the agenda for Saturday @ 5:45 is an annual banquet. Is that a pot luck deal or one of the additional paid meals you mention? Just asking for planning purposes.

Just wanted to expand a little on Matt's reply. . .

Y'all come!

Just to clarify, the gates are open, and you are welcome to walk in. And yes, the Vintage open house is an excellent time to visit.

I had the same question ten years ago when our first trailer was very much in a state of restoration and we visited a WBCCI rally near us. We were greeted like long lost relatives, and met many new friends who are still friends to the present day.

Ahh, great. I am just planning out the fridge/galley stock up items- one less meal to plan.

That sounds great! We will do our best to make it. Also looking at other vintage AS might help us get some ideas for ours. I look forward to going, meeting new friends is all ways great.

I can't seem to locate a "FAQ's" page. Generators may not be used?

I sounds like there will be power for all but AC and high powered items.

And you probably won't want A/C--forecast high temps for the rally are in the upper 60s and low 70s.

As far as generators, depending on where you are parked you may have your own 30 A hookup. And--strictly unofficially--if you are parked out in left field where power is limited, your neighbors probably won't say anything if you run a generator a little.

Based on my own, admittedly limited, experience [last year's rally], the Florida State Rally is like the International Rally Lite--all the activities but only 10% of the bureaucracy. In other words--the kind of rally you will want to come back to!

Thanks for the feedback. I assumed that a/c would not be needed, but its all about my coffee which I brew throughout the day!!

I agree with Nuvite-F. Was only a day-visitor to last year's Rally, everything, and I mean EVERYTHING is within walking distance. If you go more than a half mile to get to anything at this fairground, you're across the street.

I plan on attending again this year, AGAIN as a day-visitor (someday the AS will be ready) to visit on Friday and Saturday. Mainly to gain some more knowledge about Airstreams, as well as to meet face to face with the AirForums folks here.

Hope everyone in attendance enjoys this as much as I did last year!
Thanks, Derek
