Thursday May 14, 2009: Early vintage trailer group member arrivals can set up and hang out with other vintage campers, no events are planned for this day.
Friday May 15, 2009: 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 May 16, 2009: 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 May 17, 2009: 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”.

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.

It is 2011. Is there anything going on this year in Tenn ?
Thanks so much for your comment and your interest. Personally I think that “vintage camper” is more a state of mind than the actual ownership and towing of a vintage camper. I absoultely FELL IN LOVE with vintage campers when I saw a local vintage camper owner displaying her 3 trailers that she rents out in Santa Barbara County and San Luis Obispo Counties. (Here’s the post I wrote about it – http://camper-blue-book-value.com/vintage-camper-trailer-rentals/). Please consider the group would love to have you join them! Vintage camper buffs love their hobby, and are so happy to share their love of campers! Please see the contact info in the post, and call Misty River and make your reservations right away. And then click on the link in the post for the Yahoo Vintage Campers Group and join. These folks are just bubbling over with enthusiasm about vintage campers. A word of advice, they’re a very active group, and when I first joined I received way too may emails. So – my recommendation is to select the option that allows one daily email digest, and you won’t miss a thing. After you’ve joined just make a post to the group and tell them you’re a new member, and ask anyone else that’s attending to let you know, so you can look forward to meeting in person. I wish I was going!
Welcome to the vintage campers (at heart) group!

Can I camp at your campground even though I might not be in a vintage trailer? What are the qualifications for a vintage trailer? Thanks!
