This is the custom t-shirt available for this rally, by Rush Creek.
The t-shirts are a pre-order only. They are available in all sizes up to 3xl. Orders must be received by March 14. The cost is $30.00 each.

This is the flyer of the new off-grid Nomad.

I want to love that shirt, but….

Am I the only one bothered by it being flipped the wrong way, door and awning on the wrong side?

T-Shirts

We are aware of the flipped trailer. T hi e artist didn’t know. I released it to get the promotion going. I should have waited for the corrected version. It is currently being reworked. Sore about the confusion - my bad. Curtis

Sounds like a fun event. We'd be there if we could if only to see how they fit 6 panels on the roof.

What's wrong with releasing the British T-shirt version first?

This looks like a great event, lots of Happy Hour

As a fellow business owner, I would be donating those t-shirts, 2 per rig. Great advertising and an obvious write off, not charging $30 each.....

Or maybe $10 each to cover the cost. Rush Creek stands to gain a tremendous amount of positive exposure.

Looking forward to this event!

Who knew there was a distillery in Harvard, IL? I only know it for the cow...

Sounds like it will be a great rally. Sorry we cannot make it this year but we will watch for it again in the future.
