There is Wi-Fi at the fairgrounds, but it will slow down if hundreds of people are hitting it. If you have a portable hot spot, you might think about using it. I don't know if the Wi-Fi reaches to all of the locations where we'll have temporary sites set up.

This is one of the "draws" to attend the rally: Forest River will repair safety-issue items for free. The goal of which is to make you Forest River RV owners for life.

It worked on us!

You are better off using your cell phone as a hot spot - Like TURBS said, last year it was slow and laggy - we have 200+ more rigs to the rally this year so you do the math

The good news is if you really do have to have hispeed access for something, a quick run downtown to one of these free WIFI hotspots will get you on line:

Free Wi-Fi Internet Hotspot in 46526 zip code - GOSHEN Free WiFi Locations

I had a WIFI booster with an outside antenna last year and only time I had internet was from 2am to 5am.
I would recommend something like Verizon jetpack for the internet.

Then you will be in heaven, a train will come by atleast 5 x 's a day and night. Thursday night it all night long for some reason and they all toot there whistles. There must be a major hub on them tracts the Fairgrounds back's up to. Not kidding about ear plugs if your a light sleeper. I have found out in the past what some peoples heaven is others hell. In the end you get use to it.....

5x a day is a way underestimate on the trains

Maybe 5X an hour is closer.
