2007 Redmond Rally


I was wondering if anyone on the forum will be at the Redmond Rally. My wife and I went to the 2005 Rally in Redmond. We were put out in a dirt field along with about 5,000 others. To keep the dust down they used a water truck with turned the field to mud. However, the rally was great. The seminars were good and covered just about any topic you could think of, the vendors had everything you could imagine for RVing, and of course the new RV's were great to look at.


This year we are staying at Mt. View campground in Sisters and will be driving the 20 miles to the Rally. I understand this year all camping will be at the fair grounds.

We've been thinking about going to this rally.  Any others out there who have been to it in the past?  We're soon-to-be fulltimers and are soaking up as much info as possible.  Would this be helpful?

I realized there are two big rallies in Redmond, OR this summer.  The Good Sam/Coast-2-Coast/Camping World/Woodalls (Affinity Group) rally in July and then the FMCA one in August.  We will be at the FMCA one.  The FMCA one is only for motorhomes.  Since the last Affinity rally in Redmond was in 2005 and the last FMCA one in 2004 I can figure out that Dick Nason is refering to the Affinity one.


It is good to know the seminars are good since I figured with Affinity Group involved I figured they would all be trying to sell me something and would give biased information.

Is that 5,000 people or RVs?

Either way, why would you go to a place you knew there would be that many people crowded into a fairground for a week? Is this the size of typical RV rallies like Escapades, national owner rallies, etc?

The only huge rallies are the FMCA conventions and The Rally and both can get 4,000 to 7,000 RVs plus walk-ins.  They are held at only a few places that have the room for them.  Escapades are around 1,000 RVs and can be held at some fairgrounds.  The 30th Birthday bash Escapade in July 2008 will be larger and will be held someplace with lots of room, the Camplex at Gillette, WY.   The idea on these big events is to big enough to have many vendors and to have professional entertainment, anything smaller and they are mostly potlucks and getting together.

    We attended both the Daytona Rally (Affinity Group) and the Charolette NC Rally (FMCA) . Even though there was around 4000 RVs they both went rather smooth. I'm not one for confusion and delay and there was very little at either rally. We are planning on attending the FMCA rally at Pamona in 08.   Tom

My wife and I are considering the FMCA rally in Redmond this year.  Be pretty neat to have an RV-Dreams attitude adjustment hour.
