I think everyone that owns a Forest River product should go to the International Rally once.

Ken and Terry, we encourage the PPST to return each year. That way we know where they are, and they're not out wandering the roads unattended.

Actually, for all of the bluster and unfounded notoriety, they're about as fine a group of folks as you'd want to meet.

Plus you keep them all in one area so you know where they are....or at least supposed to be

What is going to be the cut off for getting work done on your RV will it be 2017 and newer ? Last year I believe it was 2016.

I don't believe it Sold Out last year maybe this year will be different Although I have no plans to attend in 2019 I'd like to try and experience it at least once in my RV'ing career...Or at least while I still own a FR product

No determination has been made yet. I'll let everyone know as soon as I know.

I do believe 2018 was well on it's way to selling out in record time until the registration system had it's little 'flutter'.

I firmly stand by my personal belief that if the main reason you attend the rally is for "free" service, you will be doing everyone a favor by staying home and letting that spot be open for someone who wants to enjoy the week of fun and fellowship.

Tim, you're exactly right. We had 500 registrations in the first hour, which is what triggered an alert on our credit card processor's system and caused the problem.

By the time we were able to figure out the issue, start a series of notifications to everyone, and verify that everything was fixed, we'd lost a lot of momentum, and ended up with a little over 650 units. I know that the cutback in service rules had an effect as well, but don't really have a reliable way to measure that.

As it turned out, when we had torrential rain that collapsed the tent for serving lines a few days before the rally opened, we were glad to have a smaller group and be able to move the serving lines inside.
