Smoky Mountains Rally in May

I am throwing this bait out to see who might be interested.

Vintage Camper Rally in the Smoky's 2009
May 15-16, 2009


Misty River Cabins & RV Resort has graciously offered to host the
event.
If you will be joining us for the first time, you are in for a
wonderful treat!
Misty River Cabins & RV Resort is the Tennessee Campground of the
Year 2008-2009
Here is just a sample of what Misty River Cabins & RV Resort has to
offer:

72 full hookup RV Sites with cable & WiFi service,
Pool & Hot Tub.
BBQ Shack by the Pool & Game Room
Private Bath Rooms and Laundry facilities, No gym showers here!
2000 feet of river access to the Little River for fishing, tubing
and swimming.
Close to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Close to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

The rally dates are from Thursday May 14 till Sunday May 17, 2008.
Here is just a sample schedule for the rally

Thursday: Early arrivals can set up and hang out with other vintage
campers, No events are planned for this day.

Friday: Start the morning off with a nice hot cup of Joe in the Club
House. The rest of the vintage campers arrive today. This is a
great day to walk around the park, get the low down on how to do
some new things to your trailer, hang out with old and new friends,
do a little sight seeing, shopping, hiking or just relax!

Saturday: This is The Big Day! After having your morning coffee,
everyone will get ready for the Big Open House and Swap Meet. This
event is the best part of the whole rally. We will invite the
public, vintage camper owners and those who want to be, the Press
and everyone else to come on down and visit with us from 11am till
4pm only!
In that 5 hour period, every one of them will be coming to see your
trailer!
We will also hold a swap meet at the same time, so you can all drag
out all of those great collectables and vintage trailer related
items to sell at your site.
We will be having a pot luck dinner in the club house at 6pm.

Sunday: It has been a great weekend but it is now time for us to
start packing it in for the drive home.

Misty River Cabins & RV Resort is offering a reduced "Group Rate"
fee of $32.00 + tax, per site, each night to stay at the park with a
two night, Friday and Saturday minimum. These sites are available on
a first come first serve basis and must be reserved before APRIL 30,
2009 for the reduced rate. All sites are "full hook-up".
Cancellations must be made with Misty River at least 72 hours prior
to your scheduled arrival in order to receive a refund. If you would
like to extend your stay at Misty River, they have graciously
extended the group rate to all rally attendees for 4 day prior to
and 4 days after the rally. You can order and pay for those nights
when you make your reservation. If you want a camp site next to
someone else, we would suggest that you make the arrangements with
Misty River at the time you pay for your site.

Important information, please read:

Sales:
Vintage items, camping goods , old trailer parts and other such
items are more than welcome for the swap meet on Saturday and may be
sold at no expense if you are camping at Misty River. If you wish
to place a for sale sign in your trailer at the event with the hopes
of selling it, you are more than welcome to. Anyone wishing to sell
new & old trailers related items at the event and not camping will
be required to register with Misty River and pay a sellers fee. No
other individual or business may advertise, promote or hand out
business card or flyers at the event without the express written
permission of Misty River Cabins & RV Resort.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in May

Kevin, that sounds like a blast! I think we'll be in Michigan with our "vintage" airstream. LOL!

Folks, rallies are a blast and you get to meet wonderful folks like Kevin... Don't say you should do it... just do it! Food, fun, friendly folks, and most of all, vintage campers!

Lois and Hank, Kathy, Sorry that you can't make this one. Hopefully, others CAN make it. I just put out the dates and hoped someone will want to attend-- I love the Pigeon Forge area, Gatlinburg, and the Smoky Mountains.

This is the same weekend as the Springstream Rally in North Georgia, after many problems with the other dates that is the one that seemed to work. Hope there will not be too much conflict.

Misty River is hosting an Airstream Rally on the 1st and 2nd of May. Since our AS is a 2008, we won't be attending the Vintage Rally, we will, however be at the AS Rally.

This rally is planned by the campground owners listed in the #1 thread that I posted. It is for owners of any brand trailer or motorhome that is a vintage year. I am sure you would also be welcome to attend in a newer unit. Contact the owners for details.

Hello Robert
It is a vintage rally but sure your welcome to attend......The rally is hosted by campground owners Diane & Jimmy Felton as part of 'Club Tennessee's' first ever vintage trailer rally @ http://tinyurl.com/2sxfrv
'Club Tennessee' is a very small but growing group of classic trailer owners from that state and is part of the much larger vintage trailer group called the 'U.S.A. Vintage Trailer Network' @ http://tinyurl.com/28achc

The May rally has been well promoted on a good number of groups and forums to date so we are hoping for a good turn out.....I'm doing my part in promoting the event from my state of Florida and do plan on attending this Tennessee event.....Hope to see you and others @ the campground this May.

IF you check the dates and times, this rally was on the record books before Springstream was decided. My apologies to Alan. I'll have to be in TN this May.

I was at the campground this past Saturday. It is a beautiful place for a rally. The sites are spacious and there is plenty of room for all sizes of trailers and motorhomes. All of the sites are pull thrus and the camp is very level.
There are 14 people signed up (by the camp) so far. If you're in the area in mid May, stop by and visit the rally. We'll have a great place for the vintage weekend.
