Upcoming campouts

Our next event is the Fifth Annual Winter Camp-in, Anywhere you are. What does this mean? It is winter and many of us live in areas where actual camping in our trailer is not possible. The winter camp-in is an opportunity to have some fun. Do something with your trailer and email a picture to Mabel and I will take the pictures and create a slideshow. If you submitted a picture, you may vote on "Best in Show". The winner will get a plaque that they may hang in their trailer. We have some very fun and creative submissions. Take a look at previous years' shows.

Other changes to note: the April event at the Shenandoah River State Park in Virginia has been changed to a Friday to Sunday event, April 11-13.

The December 2014 and December 2015 events in Florida have been cancelled. Due to the extreme weather this year, and losing power at our home for nine days, Mabel and I will not be venturing out in December anymore. Sorry for those of you who were planning on coming but towing a trailer in blizzard conditions on ice covered roads is neither fun, nor safe.

Check out all the other gatherings to see if we are coming to a locale near you. Booking now into 2016.

Scotty Restorations

The NSSO is very picky when it comes to recommending trailer restorers. and we recommend only the best. That does not, however, negate your due diligence when contracting with someone to restore or make repairs to your trailer. More info...
