New Full-timer Rally Map

For many years we’ve had an annual Google Map produced for Molded Fiberglass Travel Trailer Rallies. 2018 Rallies are shown at https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/ed...7642619619&z=3

Now RV Compass is producing a very similar annual rally map for full-timer gatherings (regardless of RV type). If you know of a 2018 rally/gathering for full-timers, please private message (PM) me.
Provide event dates, name of event, location and an online landing page (website, FaceBook link, etc.)
I’ll get it on the map.

You may want to add the missing ones to the map you are maintaining.

Thanks Thomas.
The mfrvg rallies focus on Casitas, not full-timers. They'll get added to the 2018 fiberglass trailer rally map usually in the spring of 2018 with "No further information available" (like the Escape Owner appreciation rally) unless an inquisitive attendee or the rally coordinator goes out of their comfort zone to start a thread on Fiberglassrv.com. I will then link the map location to the thread.

I'm willing to link any URL source for the 2018 Full-timer focused event map. Again, that's any type of RV. There is only one event on that map to-date, and I know we'll have more full-timer events in the future.

Just wondering - Bluebonnet is an mfrvg rally, and it's on the map. We've attended twice, but didn't really consider it's focus to be full timers - just Casitas. Were we off?

One other thought - we've met a ton of retirees at fiberglass rallies, but not alot who actually full time in their trailer.

I see it mentioned that the mfgrv rallies are Casita rallies? But I am taking it that other mfgrvs such as Scamps and Escapes are also welcome to attend?

Mfrvg rallies are open to all brands of molded fiberglass trailers, but the majority of them are Casitas (being in "Casita Country")

I'm noticing forum admin on other fiberglass brand sites are moving this thread to the full-timing forum, which is understandable and probably belongs there instead of the rally forum.

I'll reiterate again...
I'm starting a new map for full-timer focused events, regardless of type or class of RV. A Molded Fiberglass Travel Trailer Map already exists and I am separating the full-timer events from the regular fiberglass rallies that we know already exist.

First time I've seen the acronym "mfrvg". It reads like someone is trying to curse with their mouth full.

And I still haven't figured out what the "g" is for in this acronym.
