The 2007 National Truck Camper Show: Ten Years Later

For our part, we designed the show maps illustrating what companies were in attendance and where their sites were.  On the back of the map we had an invitation to meet us and watch a short video about our truck camping adventures.  We even had movie posters at our site to entice walkers by to watch the DVD.

The show itself was very well organized and run by Rex and the NATCOA team.  NATCOA had a sign-in tent and a security detail patrolling in yellow shirts.  The security detail made sure only truck campers were allowed into the campground area.  No pesky motorhomes or towables allowed.

The atmosphere at the show was more like an outdoor festival than a typical RV show or rally.
