Oregon is Rally Central!

Whether it’s meeting with a couple hundred RVers at the Linn County Fair & Expo Center in the south Willamette Valley, or enjoying full hookups at the Mill Casino & RV Park on the coast, or attending a huge FMCA or Good Sam event in Bend with 2,000 other RVers, the message is getting out: Oregon is Rally Central!

An RV mecca of highly qualified service specialists, dealers, and RV related services and suppliers, this is the place to get your RV renovations, service and maintenance handled. It’s also the place to come when it is time to shop for a new motorcoach.

What you may not realize is that you can arrange for most of these services when attending one of the many RV rallies and shows held annually across the state.

I have polled thousands of motorcoachers with rally surveys over the last couple decades and here’s why they say they attend Oregon rallies:

  • To meet new people, to socialize, learn, play games, and have a great time!
  • To spend time with friends made over the years parked next to me at rallies; to attend informative seminars about my motorhome.
  • To take classes on everything from fly-tying to beading and Swedish weaving; to get some RV repairs taken care of (often at a special rally discount); to shop for a new RV.
  • To partake of great evening entertainment and meals; to shop the vendor exhibitors area!

Most RVers note they especially enjoyed the seminars and learning more about their coach and how to care for it. Whatever your reason for attending, you are bound to have a wonderful time.

Like your RV adventures; travel through a rally at your own pace. Immerse yourself in the busy rally schedule, taking in as many or as few of the activities offered as you wish.

You may just find yourself so busy that you won’t turn on that TV for days – which can be a good feeling – unplugging from the bad news and plugging into this special group of like-minded recreation enthusiasts. In the evening, sit coach-side enjoying a cool breeze and good friends.

During your rally time in Oregon, build in extra days for touring many interesting industries and attractions just off rally site.

Wind down Oregon back roads on a winery tour, rediscover Oregon’s historic covered bridges, take an Oregon country tour, hike to waterfalls, play on the beach, visit lava beds, and discover this state’s natural wonders.

Socialize, recreate, refresh! Come to a rally in Oregon soon – there’s nothing like it.
