Function at the Junction Rally

August 19 @ 8:00 AM August 22 @ 5:00 PM EDT

Former TCT Leaders Forrest & Jeri Bone will be part of the 2023 Hall of Fame Inductees with a ceremony on Monday August 21st at the RV Museum in Elkhart Indiana.

To celebrate this event, Tin Can Tourists and the Vintage Airstream Club members are invited to camp at the museum and take part in the festivities.

The rally will be held on the grounds of the museum. Dry camping or electric only will be available. Potable water available and two dump stations are available on-site. Hoses for trailer washing and cleanup will be available. A large enclosed pavilion with banquet room will be available for us to use that has air conditioning, bathrooms and meeting facilities.

Shower facilities have been procured. Lifetime Fitness is 6 miles from the Museum and they will have agreed to provide guest passes for the duration of the event for $20 per person.

Induction Ceremony Tickets are available for a discount through the rally registration form. We are bundling the tickets together and purchasing entire tables so all of the rally participants will be seated together. Dress code is business casual and vintage attire is encouraged for our rally participants. Have fun with it. The museum is excited to have a “different” group at ceremony than usual audience.

We will be camping on hard surfaces, so plan on that for your awning needs – no stakes allowed.

  1. How will we know when sign up opens? Would love to see Forrest and Geri get the award!!

  2. A registration form and directions for how to register will be available February 1st. So happy that you are planning for the event. It should be a lot of fun!

  3. This is THE vintage event of the year. Am so looking forward to it! The RV HOF has recognized so many but this is one of the first from the consumer side and the first from the vintage side. How proud we are, what a celebration we will have.

  4. Looks like a separate [additional] ticket for the Induction Ceremony/dinner?
    Can we arrive early [Friday] with our Harvest Host membership?

  5. Rather than answer individual questions ahead of the registration process, it should all be explained on Wednesday.

    Regarding early arrival with your harvest host membership, that is a question for the museum. I don’t know if they will be allowing it during this timeframe or not.

  6. There is a registration form above. Download it and print it out. Fill it out and mail it in with payment. I sent it to you by email as well.

  7. Hey Forrest & Terry,

    I would soooo love to join you for the 19tb & 20th. We have a 2021 30’ Classic and don’t want to take a space that a vintage trailer should have. Do you think you could squeeze us in somewhere out of the limelight?


  8. Mona – we would love to have you join us and we will have plenty of room for anyone that would like us!
    Please come, we’d be honored if you could make it!

  9. Terry,

    WE ARE SO THERE!! Will send registration form tomorrow. Personally, I am honored to be there
