Live In-person Events & Gatherings

Wanting to elevate Learn To RV from just an online resource and building off of the success of the Facebook and Reddit groups, I want to start building a sense of real community. With that in mind, I’m starting to plan out get togethers, hangouts, and (hopefully) rallies!

What Are They?

  • Get togethers – basically an evening around a campfire. Maybe a potluck if we’re feeling saucy.
  • Hangouts – a couple day gathering at a campground with a laid-back atmosphere. No real strong plans other than some potlucks and campfires over the course of a few days.
  • Rallies – these are the real deal events with seminars, presentations, planned outings, potlucks, and campfires. These will typically be longer than the hangouts.

Where and When?

I’m trying to avoid keeping these to any one particular location of the country. My goal is to have them all over as we travel and as the member community themselves host events.

To get started, RSVPs are going to be handled through Facebook Events in the Learn To RV group. If you’re not on Facebook, please send me a note that you’ll be there.

For events hosted at Thousand Trails campgrounds, you can either use a membership or get a campsite using their retail spots (though you may find that a membership often pays for itself!).
