Definitely. The best day for a drive in is Saturday. Potluck & raffle & white elephant gift exchange all happen that evening if you are interested in any of those. Or just come and shoot the stuff with us. The schedule of events is listed on that thread. Will you have it camp ready by October? There is another rally in your backyard (Findley state park) end of october

New Things observed during my October visit.

- New type of insulation not made of fiberglass
- Holding tanks have heater strip nd are enclosed in galvanized metal
- Lots of LED lighting
- Blue tooth hands free phone system incorporated into the AV set up
- New "Onyx" interior
- European models are 6 inches narrower and come with hand rails for maneuvering and galvanized frames.
- European models can be ordered with no interior and a flip up sidewall for use as a vending platform.
- Turning out about 10 finished airstreams per day.
