JANUARY 19-23, 2017
Join members from all across the country for our annual RVW boondocking rally. As in past years, this event is being held in conjunction with the big tent RV show that draws thousands of RVers to this sleepy desert town located 20 miles east of the California/Arizona border. The big tent will be open January 21 to 29.
This will be a loosely scheduled rally with free time for shopping, exploring the desert, and hanging out with friends old and new. We will start each day with a continental breakfast and end each day with a campfire. Bring firewood for these evening get-togethers.
Keith Shomaker will join us on Thursday afternoon for a question-and-answer session on RV maintenance. Keith is co-owner of Redlands Truck and RV Performance Center and a regular contributor to RVW magazine. Technicians from Redlands will be available at Quartzsite to conduct a free 21-point inspection of your RV. Make an appointment for this inspection by sending an email to email@example.com. Redlands Truck and RV Performance Center will also host a customer appreciation barbecue dinner Friday evening. All rally attendees are invited.
Other rally activities will include a Friday afternoon seminar on batteries and solar led by Kassandra and Ed Dennis representing An RVer's Friend and a Monday morning seminar on SkyMed led by Karen and Jack Cotton. We will hold a Fulltimers Chapter meeting at 10 a.m. Sunday. We will also have a silent auction on Sunday (opening at 10 a.m. and closing at 5 p.m.). Bring new or nearly new items for this auction.
This is a boondocking rally on BLM land with no camping fees. Arrive with full water tanks, charged batteries and empty holding tanks. From I-10 take U.S. Hwy 95 south past Mile Marker 99. Turn west onto La Paz Road and take the first dirt road turn off on the right. Stop at the BLM host site to check in. You may park free for up to 14 nights in our camp area, but you must collect a permit from the BLM host. After you have secured your permit, follow the signs for the RVW rally. Our camp area is about a mile back. You will go past the Beaver rally to get to our camp area.
