Anyone interested in a Rally in Rockland Maine Summer 2019?

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone

I have been trolling the forum for 6 plus years have restored one toyhome several times and am c iurrently restoring my second toyhome.

Leaving Maine around the last week in January 2019. Returning when the weather is better....

So I  have a long term involvement with the Landings Marina in Rockland Maine. Over several weekends in the summer the Landings hosts 50 plus camping rigs for two or three days at a time.

The Bluesfest is the big weekend and not on the table.

What is on the table for the Landings Marina is any weekend but the Bluesfest in Rockland Maine.

August for the boatshow  would be a great time to organize a gathering of ToyHomes as nothing is scheduled for the parking lot.

No hookups will be available but bathrooms, showers and laundry are.

If we can establish a mass showing of Toyhomes I can guaranty a great time on the water in Maine.

If Toyhomes just need a place to hang by the water in 2019 this is the place. Build your own fire on the beach.

Thoughs?????

So I met with the owner of the Landings Marina and explained what  a Toy In is.

He regrets passing on the purchase of a very nice ToyHome  several years ago and enjoys hosting RVs anytime.

Two weekends out of the summer when big events are happening in Rockland and the marina property is not used for camping are:

The Boats Homes and Harbor Show August 9 -11 2019 this is a fun show.

The other is the Lobster Festival..  July 31st Thru August 4th.  The Marina has its own party on the Saturday evening with a huge discounted lobster feed. All are welcome to attend

The Owlshead Transportation Museum has many events during the Summer and our rigs are old enough to get in free to any event. It might even be possible to dry camp on their property during any event.  I highly recommend checking out any event here.  The people who make this happen are amazing and for the most part dedicated volunteers. 

The Truck and Tractor Show is one of my favorites . I took my 1988 F-Superduty ramp truck to the show 2018.

They also have a great Motorcycle show and if I am around I display a few of my Yamahas there.

Any visit to OHT Is worth every moment.  Many people who come from far away park there RVs and stay for the weekend. I will look into that.

If we have ten or more to display the museum would give us our own show.....

The Landings charges 30 to 40 per night.  No hookups. You can water up and I am working on modifying a manhole to provide a free dump station.

The City Of Rockland has a dump station but charges 25 bucks to dump.  I am going to look into that as dumping used to be free.

Walmart and Tractor Supply in Thomaston are actually in my back yard. I treat Walmart as my pantry and keep a lot less food in the house since it oppened[ six? years ago).

There are many fun things to do here in Midcoast Maine and I look forward to seeing as many members as can show.

If we can get enough rigs together maybe we can do some tech forums and each speak on our own expertise.

I thank Everyone who has contributed to this forum You have all been a huge help and Inspiration.

Moving on....

The owner marina also owns other properties that are available to myself (local quick lube)  that can be used to look over on our rigs on off hours.

So..

Lets get together and have some fun this summer.

I go by Ports.  I have a 1994 Winnebago Micro Warrior that I purchased last April from an older couple in Florida.  Me and my wife might be interested in the Rockland Rally.  I will continue to check your post. Would be great to around other toy owners as I am trying to learn as much as I can so I can do as much as I can.  Ports
