Start / Organizing a Rally

Wish you had an RV rally close to you?  Start one and they will come.  Want to know how?

Mike and I were wagon masters for the WNY / CNY Grand Design RV Rally for 2018 and 2019 and here is how we started.

  • Pick a location
  • Contact the camping park management or owner and discuss time frame, facilities, etc.
  • Pick a weekend (Friday – Sunday) that is slow for the campground, they might give you a group discount
  • Post it on Facebook, forums, the RV Manufacture’s website, etc.
  • Contact the RV Manufacture for handouts or giveaways and a dealer in your area to work with
  • Contact the local dealer for giveaways, handouts and maybe a service tech to take care of small issues or someone for the round table discussions
  • Ask for volunteers/help for registration and organizing a pot luck dinner

It really is not that hard.    Our first rally started with me and 3 other ladies (Amy, Theresa and Wendy) discussing a “get together”, we posted it and others came.  By the day of the rally we had 24 units/camp sites booked.  The second year, we had 48.

Keep it simple.  Registration, welcome fire, maybe a craft time, show and tell (everyone loves that), round table discussions, pot luck, goodbye breakfast, etc.

Good luck.  If you have any questions, post them below.
