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. We are working on providing shower facilities at nearby campgrounds, water park or schools.

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.
