Must Attend Events Shared By Readers
This week we asked readers about the 2018 events they will be attending with their truck campers. We suggested our must-attend event for 2018, Florida Flywheelers. In response, readers suggested two similar events in Maine and Minnesota.
“I compete at the antique tractor pulls here in New England. I attend the annual show, swap meet and pull at the Raitt Family Homestead Museum in Eliot, Maine. It is usually the last weekend in July. There is a group of us with campers that attend.
The admission fee is minimal. There is no charge for the camping. There is no electricity, water or dump. We bring our own power and water and we dump when we get back home. We make sure that we leave the area cleaner than we found it and enjoy being invited back each year.” – George Randall, 2012 Ford F350, 2016 Arctic Fox 865
“The Upper Mid-West A-C Club puts on an event called Orange Spectacular. It is from July 27-29 2018, at the McLeod County Fairgrounds in Hutchinson, Minnesota.
I belong to their club and work at the campground. There is no camping fee or gate fee. I also belong to there Florida Flywheelers. I am on row 48 spots 17, 18, and 19. I’ve been a member there over 15 years.” – John and Elaine Simon, 1993 Dodge Ram 3500, 1993 Alpenlite 11’
