some further detail just received... Hours-- 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday
2 weekend passes come with each entry and you do not have to register your vintage tow vehicle unless you want to receive super prize tickets and extra people passes, also the vintage tow vehicle would be considered for awards if registered. Non vintage parking will be assigned. As to people viewing your trailer inside-
we will publish a time for open house and campers can be toured or whatever the owner prefers.Provision will be made to display a sign or such stating open house for your camper. As for me- I choose not to let so many people inside, but that's just my choice. And its subject to change.... Right now we are on track ( literally) for a very nice vintage camper show!

I had a tour of the facilities at AMS today and was very impressed with the layout and the plans. The area where our vintage campers will be parked is a large blacktop with a number of mostly level sites. Electric hookups at each site ( 20 amp). Water is available nearby, but will not be run to the campers. You can fill a bucket or such if you choose.
-Open house will be both days from noon to 4, you can choose to participate or not to, by displaying on "Open House" sign in your window.
-Special trophies and awards can be won by the campers on display.
In this same area there will be a motorcycle show on one end, and a Barbecue competition on that side as well. A stage for live music will be in front of the area with all of us getting a good show. If you are a picker bring your 'axe' as after the show we can use the stage to jam or sing.
Bathrooms with showers are nearby, after a brief walk through a gate to another section. Not a long walk.
The staff is encouraging vintage campers to arrive on Friday. The morning or early afternoon is best for arrival. You can of course stay in the camper Friday night.
-There will be a brewery tour and a cruise for those who want to attend at a local spot on Friday night. Come ready to have fun.
The gate to the inside track area will close at 6:30 or so, and there will be guard on duty overnight. You will have parking for your vehicle and access to your camper. Also there is a lot/field out of the track where you can dry camp if you choose to get there Thursday, but you will have to move the camper inside the track on Friday.
- I implore everyone to reserve before March 15 so you can get access to electric equipped sites. There will be a $10 electric hookup charge paid onsite. Anyone registering after Mar 15 cannot be guaranteed electric hookup, and may have to park their camper in a nearby area.
-This show will have a section indoors for vintage Packards and other high end show vehicles. Outdoors, and outside of the camper/bike area will be open display for customs, hot rods, vintage cars and more.
-Many vendors and food vendors will be located around the area as well.
-A track for “cone” racing will be nearby. - Please no golf carts.
Lots going on!! Any other questions are welcomed at ALANSDAVID@GMAIL.COM
Y'all Come!! We want to turn this into an annual event for campers only and grow it. Tell me what you'd like to see in a a show like this.

Please register soon if you are interested, and plan to arrive on Friday if you can and join us for the Brewery tour that night. Musicians bring your instrument as we will have a jam on the stage after show hours on Saturday.

the show is this weekend. I pulled my camper in there yesterday and will be leaving it until I get back to it at show time. The only thing I saw was a lot of setting up and a huge, I mean huge Monster truck with tires bigger than any I have ever seen. My area was empty except for my Airstream...others due Friday.
If you are nearby you should come for the day Saturday or Sunday 9 to 5 its gonna be a lot of fun with cars, trucks, motorcycles galore.

the Motorama show was absolutely amazing! So many incredible cars and bikes on site with numerous activities for the whole family. About a dozen vintage campers were set up for this, the first time that the show included campers to view. People were excited to see and talk about the vintage camper "thing".Awards were given to 3 very nice campers. Photos here

planning for next year. Anyone have suggestions on how to better promote this to vintage camper owners? We will likely move the location to an area of the Speedway where it is grassy, and may have CAT donate generators for electricity. Also they hope to have 2500 cars and trucks there on display next time.
