I see you have vintage trailers, so you have lots of options...it really depends on your interests and where you are located or willing to travel to.
I'd say there are three basic rally styles that I favor...and I have favorites for each style. They are a "learning experience", an "event rally" and a "vintage social rally". However, there are as many different rally styles as there are hosts, because each rally takes on the personality of it's hosts. It's really hard to limit it to just these three styles...but, here goes.
My top three in this area (one for each style - not in any order) are:
1) If a "learning experience
" is what you are after the Vintage Trailer Acadamy that Ken J, 4CU et al host/sponser in NM will be very helpful as it focuses on the rebuilding skills required to restore a vintage trailer. However, if you already have a "finished" trailer or have the restoration skills mastered, this one may not suit you.
2) If you are looking for an "event rally
", then I wouldn't miss the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta Rally. The on-site parking that is arranged is great and the social activities focus on the Balloon Fiesta - so there is lots to do, but most of it is centered around the Balloon Fiesta activities.
3) If you are looking for a "vintage social rally
", then I would recommend the RMVAC Rally. It's usually announced in January and is held every other year in the Rocky Mountain Area of CO. It is centered around the community of vintage trailer owners - it focuses on the uniqueness of the trailers and people that travel with them.
If you are fortunate to be retired and able to travel all summer, you could
hit all three the same year!
Of course, my "favorite
" rally is usually the one I've just attended.
