National Rally

Lots of fun stuff planned for this summer's National Rally to be held (again) at Cooper's Lake Campground (7/09-7/13) near Slippery Rock in the NW corner of PA. We already have 30 families registered - if you're coming, get your registration in soon! More info and to register...

National Rally Slide show CDs Available!

If you weren't able to attend any of our National Rallys, you can order the CD slide shows from them here. These slide show CDs contain hundreds of pictures of all trailers and campers who attended, both interior and exterior shots. Plus photos of all the rally events. It's always fun to see what others have done to/with their trailer.
