What’s It Like to Attend a Small Travel Trailer Rally?

Small Travel Trailer Rally

A Really Great Experience!

We just got back home from a great (and big) one last week.

We attended the 4th Annual Florida Egg Rally and S' More. This rally is held each January at the Spirit of the Suwanee Music Park and Campground in north Florida (near the junction of I-75 & I-10). It's a huge private park, with a focus on music. They often host big name entertainers and music festivals, although during the rally music was limited to a live band in the music hall on Friday and Saturday night. Both bands played country and a little rock, and were quite good.

Thanks to the hard work and dedication of Sherri Magill, this rally has grown to over 100 trailers in attendence in just four years. Sherri is all about planning activities and making sure everyone has a great time. And oh yea...there's plenty of food!

So, back to the original question...

what's it like to attend a rally like this?
Well, it's certainly about eating! There were potluck's in the evening with plenty of leftovers.

It's about seeing a lot of other trailers. Some like your own, and some like you've never seen before!

But most of all, it's about meeting new people that have something in common with you, and establishing new friendships!

In fact, Sherri has another smaller one coming up in March, not far from our home here in Orlando at Wekiwa State Park. Of course unless you made a reservation way back when, it's too late at this point. Florida campgrounds have a real tendency to be full this time of year!

But if you are interested in a great rally in Florida next January, check out Sherri's rally page on Facebook. Even though the rally is named after "egg" trailers, Sherri welcomes everyone. Just know that if you have anything bigger, you'll have to do a lot of explaining as to why you need so much room!!!

By the way, some of the photos above are by Roy Vannoy. He did a great job documenting the whole weekend!

    1. Hi Robert,

      Thanks for reading my article and for the question.  Being in Florida, I really don’t pay much attention to rallies that far away from us.  I do host two groups on Facebook though that would probably be a good place to ask the question.

      First is the Campgrounds group.  It as over 4,000 members mostly from the U.S. with some from Canada.

      Second is the Small Travel Trailers group has over 3,000 members, also mostly from the U.S. with some from Canada,

      People tend to be quite helpful in these groups, so hopefully it will be a good place to get some answers to your question.

  1. Robert, there is a listing of rallies on fiberglassrv.com if you want to check it out. Once on the home page scroll on the left side to forums. Then scroll down through the blue banner headings to rallies. My husband and I live in KY and love to attend rallies…to the tune of 6-7 a year!! Hope to see you around!
