National Rally

It looks like National Rally 2006 at Coopers Lake Campground in Slippery Rock, PA will be even bigger and better than the 2005 rally. We've heard from many new folks that they plan to attend and we will have some Scotty models that we did not see in 2005, an 18' Trunkback, a newer 16.5' Scotty (dual axles), and even a 1969 13' Gaucho with front and rear side windows! Keep checking here for more information!
