iRV2 National Rally...out west in '18

Feeling like a bunch of my fellow Renegade owners are from the western part of the U.S., I wanted to mention that the 2018 International Rally for iRV2 members will be in Pahrump, NV in September of next year...

While I am returning to the RV world after about a seven year hiatus, at one time I was involved in the ownership of this site and can attest to the good times that are had at the International Rallies. I was the wagonmaster of the '07 International in Branson and I can tell you a crap ton of work goes into planning and there are usually RV seminars in addition to the entertainment schedule....

I've made many friends from this website over the years and it'd be neat to have the chance to meet some of you westerners as well...Who knows, maybe we could have a whole row of Renegades.... LOL!!!

I've included the link to the International below.... Give it a look and see what you think.

That sounded like a good idea...For the record, they aren't sure if they accept truck conversions and they do not accept RV's over 10 years old. However, they told me that I may send photos, and they will review them to let me know if my rig is accepted. I've got a special list for resorts like that, and its isn't a wish list.

Whoa.... I can assure you that, as a member of the iRV2 rally your truck conversion would be welcomed.... It's part of what makes iRV2 an awesome web group....I do understand where you are coming from, with regard to the "exclusion" factor of those resorts like Pelican Lakes and so forth that have standing rules against "Super C's" and yes, if I were just visiting this resort on my own and received this treatment, I'd be pissed.....

Having said that, these rallies are a boat load of good times and good fun.
I'd encourage you not to rule it out.

Bob

Thank you very much for bringing this up initially, and for giving a hoot what I think about it.

Having been a small business owner, I believe that a company should be free to do business with whomever they wish. When that business's policies prohibit doing business with me, or folks with whom I feel a kinship, that is fine too. I usually just note it and move on.

I should have kept my mouth shut (or my fingers away from the keyboard.) Unfortunately, I felt as though IRV2 was so welcoming to all and judgmental towards none (pet peeve marathons aside) that perhaps the powers that be were unaware that an RVer in a vintage fixer upper or truck conversion may be turned away from a forum sponsored event. I was incorrect.

Thanks again.

IRv2 was founded almost twenty years ago by my good friend Bill Rowell.
I came on board several years later and I can assure you that this website has NEVER been about "keeping your mouth shut" or being afraid to make a comment or ask a question...

I have made SEVERAL life long friends as a result of both RV'ing and this website in particular and many of those friendships were kindled by attending the local "region" gatherings found elsewhere down the main page. Now that I've gotten back into rv'ing, I'll again be meeting up with some of my old Newmar friends this winter in Fort Myers, for instance..


As you may have noticed, I reached out publicly and by way of a PM to Driver, and he has just posted that he will personally call and get an answer.

Never be inclined to "keep your mouth shut" on this forum... if nothing else, we'll all laugh about it later.
