  1. Heads-up, Rally Enthusiasts: Please see the info on the upcoming Fall Midwest Rally. It is in the sub-forum here called "Rallies and Toy-ins" if you don't regularly look there. The Rally will be at the Oktoberfest in Amana Iowa, Oct 4-7. Read all the details and then call (not email) if you would like to make a reservation. 626-798-4510. Leave a message with our business voicemail and we will call you back. Tika and Tom, Rally Coordinators (If you would like to reply to this topic, please reply in that sub-forum.) Hope to see you there!
  2. If you are within driving distance of St. Augustine, Florida, you are invited to a mini-Toyota RV Rally, Friday night and Saturday, May 1 & 2. The location is St. John's RV Park and Swap meet. Read the complete details in the "Rallies & Toy-ins" Forum. Hope to meet some new folks there! Tika
  3. For those close-enough to attend, see the details of the New England Toyota RV Rally, October 11-14 in the Rallies & Toy-Ins Forum.

    33 years together for Tom and me. This morning I heard the TV weathercaster here in Southern California use the term "bone-chilling." I laughed! It was 34° at 5am, and will be 60°+ today. I don't think he would do well if transferred to any stations back East!

    Any owners in Seacoast NH?

    Hey, if you want to chat with a LOT of Toyota RV owners, consider coming to the "New England Toyota RV Owners Rally" in Sturbridge, MA this weekend. You can come camp with us up to 3 nights (Fri, Sat, & Sun) or just come to visit anytime during the weekend. Saturday morning would be the best if you want to see other folks' Toyhouses in the daylight before people drive off to go sightseeing. Saturday evening there will be a potluck dinner which you are welcome to join. See this link for all the info, then call me for a confirmation if you would like to attend. http://toyotamotorhomes.com/fall.html For anyone else, there is still room (2 spots) if you would like to come too. Tika & Tom 626/798.4510 Leave a message if you get our business voicemail (health center) We're looking forward to meeting many other Toyota RV owners!
  6. (For folks who only check this topic in the forum, I am posting this here.) The Quartzsite event for Toyota RVs has been extended to include a second Rally on the second weekend as well. Due to schedule conflicts with many wannabe attendees, we have opened up "Rally - Part 2," on January 27-29th. The RV Show will still be going on at that time in the Big White Tent, and everything else is the same as well. Or you can come both times! You can read all the details in the "Rallies" topic on this forum. If you would like to attend, please CALL to reserve a spot. In this case opportunity knocks twice! Tika, '86 E-Z Ryder 626-798-4510, leave message with business voicemail
  7. The next Toyota RV Rally is coming up in January in Quartzsite, Arizona. The dates are Friday, January 22nd to Sunday, January 24th. This is during the second weekend of the huge RV show which is held there every year. Some folks in our group will be arriving as early as Thursday the 14th, and staying for the entire 10-day show. The RV show is a really fun event with free admission. A giant tent is erected with hundreds of vendors that cater to RVers. In addition pretty much the whole town turns into one giant swap meet with multiple vendors in every possible corner and location. If you like to shop for bargains, bring lots of spending money. We will be dry camping together at an RV park relatively close to the show grounds. We're going to be close enough to walk to it -- even closer than last year. That way we don't have to break camp each day to go to the show. In fact, RVers coming to it from outlying areas have to park even farther away than where this RV park is. (The distance is only .1 mi.). We're expecting about 30 Toyota RVs again this year. The proprietors seems very amiable and happy to save space for all our rigs. The fee for a 24-hour parking/camping spot is only $7 per day. (One could easily spend a good percentage of that on gas each day just driving around to alternately find a parking spot and then a camping site.) In addition there is a one-time reservation fee of $8. When you call me to confirm you are coming, you will get the specific location of where exactly to find us among the tens of thousands of RVers that will be there. I did say it will be a HUGE event, right? Thursday night, Friday night, and Saturday night we will have a community potluck dinner. We eat whatever food shows up. There is no fee to come for just the dinner. Besides some food to share, please also bring firewood for the campfires we'll have every evening. Where we will be camping there will be no hook-ups or restrooms. (This is because none of the RV parks with hook-ups will take large group reservations that weekend.) Therefore it is best to arrive with your tanks full of water and propane. Portable generators are allowed. Fresh water, showers, propane, and a dump station are available nearby for a fee, although the showers aren't particularly close. Bikes and/or scooters are great to have to get around in this town. Pets are welcome, but not allowed in the show tent. The weather will be moderate during the day and cool at night, and possibly windy. WiFi internet service is available in the RV park for a daily or weekly fee; and for once, the cell phone service at a Toyota RV Rally should be terrific! To reserve a parking/camping spot with our group in the RV Park, please call me to let me know which nights you will be coming, and how many folks and pets will be coming with you. I will tell you where to send your $8 reservation fee, and give you a confirmation number, and the specific directions for how to find us. If you have never attended a Rally before, don't be shy — we always have several first-time folks. PLEASE NOTE: In order to participate in the Rally with the group, and park inside the fenced area where we will be, YOU MUST RESERVE A SPOT IN ADVANCE. There is no limit on the number of rigs we can have, but we are only going to hold spots for those that have called ahead of time. Call me at 626-798-4510 to put your name on the list. Leave a message if you get the voicemail for my business, Altius Health Center. Call any day 11a - 9p Pacific time. Yes, it's gonna be fun!

  8. TOYOTA RV RALLY Idyllwild, CA August 28-30, 2009 Hey folks, were having a Toyota RV Rally in the Southern California area next month. Here's your chance to come to Idyllwild (in the mountains east of Hemet) where it's cool in August! The location is at the Thousand Trails Resort where we had a terrific time last year. The theme for this weekend is Hawaiian. So consider bringing your grass skirt and/or Hawaiian shirt because for our Saturday night dinner this time we'll be enjoying a potluck Hawaiian Luau. Make your reservations soon if you want one of the limited number of sites in the section that is reserved specifically for our group.

    Magnetic Snooze Bonnets

    Somewhere in the previous posts of the Toyota-campers yahoo group, I posted the info of someone who was selling them at the Great American RV show. It was in June of 2002. Search under "Vinyl Windshield Cover". The one I have I bought mine 18 years ago for my first Toyhouse when they were still being made. Tika
