Wow that's AMAZING Bob! What is the actual number? In its 3rd year, it has grown so rapidly that you max out what is probably one of the largest RV parks in the USA? Wow!

With 700+ Rigs, I can imagine the "Issues" that will come up!

Remembering what the roads into Goshen are like, and depending on rate of arrival & convergence, there might be some traffic flow issues as well. I can just imagine what traffic flow will be like if 500+ Rigs arrive throughout the day on Sunday (Glad we're coming early!)

Hope to meet many of you and share some of the awesome lifestyle stories with ya in Goshen come August.

Travel safe & enjoy the journeys!

Mikey,

I doesn't get any better than this power management system - this is the one that most of the folks on the forum use:

Progressive Industries RV Surge and Electrical Protection industry lea

Just choose you amperage, and in you want a permanent or portable unit and you will be good to go!

That's an awful lot of rigs if you've maxed out the fairgrounds. According to the fairground's website, they are capable of supporting 900 rigs. Have we really reached that many already? If so I'm glad I booked when I did instead of waiting for confirmation on vacation schedules.

They've always told us that, too, but it turns out that the actual number is more like 740 with electricity and water. Imagine our surprise to learn that!

So now you can open up the 160 boon docking sites at a reduced rate.
