Answers to all your burning questions, FAQ's:
-Trailer camping Cost is $45/night and a one time $20 rally fee. PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED
ARRIVAL: Absolute earliest you can arrive is 12 noon on Thursday - PLEASE allow us time to get set up and prepared for your arrival. Use the address above for directions and follow the signs when you get there.
PARKING: If you want to park next to someone you should plan to arrive together to ensure that happens. Parking will be unlike Mt. Baker in that we will be guiding you where to park since space will be tight. Please organize yourselves in a way that you can park, unhitch and move your Modern tow vehicle to the designated parking area in a timely fashion. Vintage Tow vehicles can remain with your trailer. We will either be on grass, concrete or gravel depending on what Mother Nature dictates for us. There will not be picnic tables at every site. We have a few folks that help us tremendously during the rally and as the organizers we may have a couple spots roped off for them. We ask that you do not save spots.
NON-VINTAGE TRAILERS: We are going to remind you that this is VINTAGE TRAILER RALLY, however we don’t want Vintage trailer lovers to miss out because your trailer is being restored, repaired or you just couldn’t get it there for any reason. We also have a category called “Vintage-in-spirit” Those are trailers that are new but look vintage. If you have any question about this we are happy to clarify your specific trailer for you.
TENTS: No Camping Tents allowed at this event
POWER/WATER: The Fairgrounds has some power and some/limited water hook ups as well. Consider filling your holding tanks before you arrive. Best if you bring extension cords and water splitters to share power and water on site. If you don't need power & water please let us know when you arrive so we know where to park you.
There is a designated place to wash your dishes. Please don’t wash your dishes in the bathroom sinks.
BATHROOMS/SHOWERS: There are plenty of bathrooms and showers to share and you will be given a map in your welcome bag when you arrive showing you where those are located.
DOGS: Your dog must be leashed at all times, Your dog must be courteous to your camping neighbors (no one wants to hear a dog barking all day), You MUST immediately pick up after your pets,
Note: We pay extra for our insurance to allow you to bring your fur babies to this event. If you or your pet can not meet the criteria above then please consider other options so we all can enjoy this event.
FIRE PITS: Self contained propane fire pits only pending any burn restrictions.
SELLING OF A TRAILER: You can place a “For Sale” sign in your trailer you certain have that option.

SWAP MEET / SELLING OF THE “STUFF”: Will be held on Saturday from 8-11am. This will be held in the Blue Expo Hall.
Tables: There will be some tables available in the Expo Hall for you to share with others - first come first serve. If you're at all concerned there wont be enough then possibly consider bringing your own. I have no idea how may folks are going to participate or even how many tables they will want so it's hard for me to know if there will be enough for all.
Set up: Yes, you can start setting up your goodies on Friday night AFTER dinner has cleared but there will not be anyone "babysitting" this all night so do so at your own risk. This is like a garage sale of your trailer parts, vintage wares, or whatever you think others might like.
no special licenses are required to sell
Yes, you can continue to sell outside of your trailer during "open house" but please keep your footprint small.
PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE: Saturday from 12-3:00 (optional if you want to open your doors or not - open/closed signs provided). Free to the public to attend. Classic Vehicles have been invited to attend the Open House event.
