National Scotty Rally - East (2012)

Eleven registrations are already in for our 2012, eighth annual rally at Slippery Rock. Dates are firmed up, begins on Wednesday, July 4 and ends on Sunday, July 8. The campground has another event there ahead of us and has asked that we please not arrive early as they need the time to clean up after the 1500+ bikers. Our theme is already set as well, "Travel Right! Travel Light!! The Scotty Way!!!".

National Scotty Rally - West (2012)

Four registrations in already for the first ever National Scotty Rally - West. This Rally will be held from September 5-9, 2012 at the Starlite Classic Campground in Canon City, CO. It is not just a for members only event - all Scotty and other small vintage trailers welcome. Mabel and I are very excited about it and we've heard there may be some folks flying in from the east to go and renting one of the vintage campers! Only 30 spots for this one - if you're coming register early!

Scotty Restorations

Only two people have thus far earned our endorsement: Tom Bernot in Ford City (north of Pittsburgh), PA and new to receive our endorsement, Mark Denlinger in Akron (west of Philadelphia), PA.
