Our new youngest member - Austin with Grandpa Bill

Upcoming campouts

Probably 20 Scottys coming to Boone, NC over Memorial weekend, hopefully three-five for the Lake Superior camp-out in July, six to ten for the Adirondacks event in September and six to ten for Letchworth in October. If you are coming to the latter two, best get your reservations in soon, both campgrounds should be fully booked.

Scotty Restorations

The NSSO is very picky when it comes to recommending trailer restorers. We are proud to announce we have added a fourth member to this exclusive group, Classic Trailer Specialists in East Jordan, Michigan. Tom Bernot has requested that I remove his listing as he is simply too busy at this time to take on any more projects. Perhaps after he retires from his real job. More info...
