Possible Moab loacation for Rally

Hi,
I don't know the details in reference to the "next year" trip, but we have planned our trip to Moab and will be staying at the Spanish Trails RV Park.

I will post information and impressions upon our return. We are very much looking forward to our very first extended trip in our A/S. We have only been out for one and two nighters!

I would bet from everything that we have learned that Moab would be a wonderful place for a Rally (excluding summer)! lol

BTW-Thanks to everyone who posted RV/Moab information!

It's a nice place

We usually try to make it to Moab in Oct. For some warmth and bike riding. I'd be interested in 2004.

I have an '80 A/S International on my property in Castle Valley, UT, and I'm pretty familiar with the hiking / biking options around Moab and beyond. I'm a singer/guitarist and I'll be performing at the "Poplar Place" on Main St. (Moab) OCT 24&25 as well as NOV 7&8. Drop in and say hellow. . . The First Annual Moab Folk Festival will be held NOV 6 thru 8. Remember, we lose DST: the days are shorter and the nights can drop into the 20's. That's usually the week I winterize. Click on my photos to see Castle Valley (18 miles E of Moab). Email if you have questions. - Roy

P.S: October is traditionally the best month to be in that part of Utah.

I just wanted to post an update to my request for a RV park recomendation in Moab, UT.

My husband and I had a very nice ten day trip to Moab. This was our very first extended stay in our A/S. She performed fabulously. We towed her over 1000 miles without any problems at all. We got our "camping" rhythm going and enjoyed our trip so very much. We know that we have many, many years of camping in front of us. We love our A/S.

We stayed at the Spanish Trails RV park in Moab. It was a very nice campground. Very clean and very quite. Each spot had its own concrete walkway, a shade tree and a Rose bush. We did regret the fact that there was really no place to walk our dog.

We toured some of the other RV parks in Moab and liked the looks of the Portal. It sits back off the highway and it did have plenty of grassy area.

Moab is a very busy place this time of year. I have never seen so many RVs in one little town before.

I will have to post a picture of, what we think is an A/S. It was sitting in a canyon under a cliff. Maybe folks that have been to Moab know of this trailer. We passed two A/S on our way to Moab, saw one on our way home, which was pulling a boat trailer behind it - truck - A/S - boat trailer, and two in other RV parks while there.

We were at a rest stop near Moab and I had a lady ask me if we were meeting a certain party in Moab that were waiting for friends of theirs who had an A/S.

On our way home, driving thru Meeker, CO, we got caught in a cattle drive - down the middle of the highway! There must have been around 100 to 150 cows. The A/S got cow poop splashed all over it! I got a picture of the cows, but what would have been a better picture would have been all the cows surrounding the A/S.

The Moab area is beartiful! The Canyonlands, Needles and Arches
areas are simply spectacular. We also enjoyed viewing all the Indian Rock Art in the area.

Ah yes, the fragrant smell of cow poop! We had a similar experience with a sheep herd up in North central Colorado, altho at the time we didn't have "Mini". How comforting?? it would have been to have that aroma wrapped around us at nite!!! They did act as an alarm clock every morning. Glad you had a good and memorable trip.

Looking forward to hearing more about Moab!! My 16 yr old will want ATV's (or a good 4 wheeler lifted about 15-30"). The music deal sounds good too. Later, Leigh

Just got back from a week of bike riding in Moab. The Airstream is winterized now, stayed in a condo. Had a great time. Temps in the mid 80's. Found a tourist newspaper paper that has a nice website listing most all of the events, festivals, etc., throughout the year. It's at: www.moabhappenings.com

It sure is pretty there and very different. The weather was great! Of course we ate at the Moab Diner and had the very best pizza at Zaz (is that right) - anyway it was wood-fired and great.

Moab Rally plans finalized!

Airstreams Forums Spring Mothers Day Hiking/Biking/Relaxing Rally.

I have finalized plans for our spring get together. We have 15 spaces blocked out at the Spanish Trails RV Park (435-259-2411) for our Rally. Our plan is to be there May 8 and leave on May 12th.

It is important to make your reservations ASAP - they will hold the block of spaces for about 30 days. We can probably have more than 15 spaces if we need it (right now there are about 30 available), but again Moab is very busy during April and May soooooooooooo we need to make reservations right away.

We will have the use of the pavilion if we want to - and I’m sure we will want to. My thinking is we do a chilli dump on Friday night, and Sunday morning the guys should cook for the moms, want to be moms or those who don’t want to be moms.

There is no rally fee since this is not a formal rally. - its an informal get together similar to last years New Mexico rally that will give us an opportunity to see each other again, or to meet you if you did not attend last year.

So thats the plan so far - lets talk over the next couple of months and plan the weekend.

Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Ken and Ellyn Johansen

Moab in March??

WE are still interested in the Rally planned for May, but my boys can't wait and since Spring Break is coming up the end of March, I mentioned Moab and they went whahoo!!! Anyway, before we make it official, has anyone been around the end of March - weather? Accomodations available? I am going to check out some to the above links, but would like some feedback from anyone here who has first hand knowledge of that time of year. Sounds like it might be somewhat quiet then? Anyway.... thanks.

Lots of spring breakers go from here...

Over the years it has been nice, hot, cold, rainy and snowey.

Its a hard time of year to predict. In March you can expect any type of weather.
