  Sign Up Now for a Maintenance Rally!  

September 11 to 15, 2019

Basswood Campground

This national event will focus on helping you understand how to care for your rig. Classes will be held from September 12 to 14 that range from a basic understanding of rig maintenance to more advanced topics of care. We are hoping that by the end of the rally those attending will know what repairs can be safely and successfully done by yourself and which ones require you to call in an expert.

In addition, the following services will be available:

  • A fleet of repair trucks will be on site to fix anything you might need during the weekend. Although you will be charged for repairs, you will not have to pay the service fee that many mobile RV repair companies charge for just showing up.

  • The company providing the RV wash and hand wax is Clean and Serene. Members of the Mid-America Chapter have used this company at their annual maintenance rally for more than 10 years. The cost ($10 a foot) will include free roof treatment, cleaning of the awning, and washing and waxing the sides of the slide- out(s). This cost is $75 a rig off of their usual cost.  
  • Location: This rally will be held at Basswood Campgrounds and Resort in Platte City, Missouri. It is a very large campground with nice sites that include full hook ups, 30/50 amp options, cable TV, free up-graded WIFI, a country store with groceries and ice, as well as a pizza parlor, a pool, fish-stocked lakes, walking trails and propane available.

Basswood Campgrounds and Resort is located at 15880 Interurban Road, Platte City, Missouri 64079.

Cost: The registration fee of $75 for RVW members, $105 for non-members, includes the three days of instruction, any handouts given, the waiving of a service/travel fee for any repairs and access to the Ask An Expert.

Camping is $50.26/night which is for a full hook up site.  You must include $50.26 for the first night’s cost with your registration and registration fee of $75 (or $105 if a non-member). RVing Women will reserve you a site for four nights and pay for the first night with the money you sent in. Once your registration is confirmed, you will call the campground at 816-281-6420 and pay the remainder of nights (3 nights at $50.26/night) directly to the campground.

Cancellations made after June 28 but on or before August 1 will receive a 40 percent refund of fees paid. There are no refunds for cancellations after August 1.

Agenda: Specifics about the classes will be sent upon registration. Those attending need to arrive the afternoon of September 11.
