Do any of you ever go to Airforums Rallys? I've been to a few and felt welcome.

Or even tin can tourist events. Used to go TCT events but most if them turnout to be about showing off rather camping. A little too bazaar for me. Airforums were about comradely and camping.

I am new to Vintage Trailers and Avions, but I am thinking about going to a Tin Can Tourist Open House in Feb 25th 2017, Brooksville, FL near Tampa. I am excited to see what other people have done and how they did it, whether for show or for functionality. Sure I want my trailer to look nice, but I also want things to work.
I have yet to camp in mine too, still slowly cleaning and fixing before buying a tow vehicle and learning how to tow. It's slow going for me and I do get impatient.

I'm not the world's most patient person, but I force myself!

The main thing is to do things right..... that will pay off in the long run. Unless you like doing the same job more than once.

One of the best feelings I get is being able to haul our Avion out of the back yard, knowing we are "going places and doing things". The wait is SO worth it!

The TCT event in Brooksville is great. Nice camp ground, must be TCT members, you can sign up when you get there.
