Do they only do repairs or can you have upgrades done at a reduced cost as mine is in the shop now having last warranty repairs done I hope I will not need any repairs as soon as August.Have been to a couple of FMCA rally's but this sounds like more fun

It is a lot of fun. Last year B and B helped with the Rally. That is fun too, get a chance to camp next to the muck pile, park RV's and get to know people.

Does not make any difference if you camper is out of warranty they will fix. Don't know about up grades. Later RJD

We don't have a limit on how many times one can attend the FROG International Rally.

We might be looking at how many times a unit will be repaired for free or at how old a unit can be. A couple contacted me this year about having just bought an eight-year-old pop-up on which they thought they'd gotten a really good deal. They apparently didn't bother to open it until they got home, at which time they found dry-rot on some of the canvas, some mold, water damage, etc. They said they understood that we repair units at the rally, so they'd just like us to go through it and fix anything that we found wrong. Not only "no," but "h--- no."

The purpose of the service at the FROG Rally is to take care of problems, not to provide upgrades at no or low cost. It's also not to replace regular maintenance and routine repairs, which are part of owning an RV.

We moved the date a week later so that there's some time to get set up after the fair ends. For the last few years the week immediately after the fair has been our setup week, and it's when our parking and registration teams and early arrivals show up.

The fairgrounds staff is trying to clean up / move equipment / mow grass on the heels of having a quarter of a million people (REALLY!) at the fair, and at the same time set up electrical and water lines, tables and chairs, and other items for us. It's a killer turnaround.

Next year the date one week later was available, and we jumped on it.

Yes I understand why they don't do the upgrades but I have had upgrades done at the factory but that was in Decatur on a different coach but it was not discounted either just wondering.
