Are RV rallies a thing of the past?

IMO faded out. Many had too many rules, were for only one brand or type. Gatherings I go to are open to everyone, usually boondocking, no campground fees, not overly structured, no funny vests or hats, no name tags (Hello! I’m Bill) etc.


Winnebago 2101DS TT & 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71, 300 watts solar-parallel & MPPT, Trojan T-125s. TALL pole for flags. Prefer USFS, COE, BLM, NPS, TVA, USF&WS, state & county camps. Bicyclist! 14 year Army vet - 11B40 then 11A - (MOS 1542 & 1560)

That's a start. 15 years ago there would be threads on 5-10 non-commercials RV rallies for each state. Some were rallies that were in their 5th or more annual runs.....especially in California. San Antonio Lake (SAL Rally) was one the best ever, along with one engineered by Lee Brandt at Kings River. Did everyone get old on me?

Delta, seven events listed in 2020? It’s early March! Deader than a doornail.

Some groups that I know have rallies;
FMCA
Escapees
Good Sam
RVillage

Most are national, state, and local level.

There are also many brand specific rallies.

I'm at a loss there... I'm not sure why the list isn't working for you

When I look at the list it shows 33 rallies.
