Ug. This sounds so fun. I just caught wind too late. We will be storing our tear in Nags Head and using it to supplement our winter and summer beach trips to the condo. Figured it would be a great way to explore and do over nights in comfort. This park seems really nice and we will be adding it to out Todo list! Hope you all have a blast.

Thanks Mcubberley-

The rally Website will remain online with its OBX resources. If this can change your plans next week, I wish for it:

The Story of this Year's Rally

Sometimes it takes an “I’m confused” email by a rally attendee to make me realize I might need to explain a bit better on how things are structured. Tonight I got that email questioning if this is a teardrop rally instead of a Casita rally. Let me share what I shared with him:


Eggshells in The Outer Banks was a rally started two years ago as molded fiberglass travel trailer rally. All brands welcome. (I own a Scamp).

This year I approached all the molded fiberglass manufacturers for sponsorship in lieu of a rig fee, and Liberty Outdoors (the new owners of ParkLiner) wanted to be the exclusive sponsor. Along with them comes their entire brand line, in addition to the 2nd generation ParkLiner.

The teardrop/Little Guy owners also wanted to bring their 5th annual Tearstock rally to us this year, because their usual campground in Ohio is under renovations for 2017. Seeing how this would be a "more the merrier" opportunity with Liberty Outdoors providing additional benefits for us, I agreed to have them join us for one big grand rally.

Although it may sound like they dominate the weekend, real bookings reflect about a 50% mix, with maybe a few more eggs represented. The site bookings are around 130, so that's at least 65-70 eggs (with plenty of Casitas).

The thing I dig the most about the teardrop clan, is they know how to do an outdoor party! If we're sharing rally camp with anyone, these are the folks to do it with.

We’re looking forward to see you next week and get ready for an extraordinary time in OBX. With the combined effort of Liberty Outdoors sponsorship and donations, there is NO RIG FEE. Just FREE catered meals, FREE live entertainment, FREE swag, etc. I need a trailer behind my trailer to bring you all the goodies we have!

If you haven’t booked yet, this is your last weekend to do so before the rally:

Shout Out to Attendees

Thanks to everyone who attended the rally. Y’all made it an awesome event!

There will be no 2018 Eggshells in The Outer Banks, as I have other projects to currently pursue. If there comes a future year to reintroduce it, I will.
In the meantime, the rally website will stay in place for independent travelers to use as a planning resource.
http://www.rvcompass.com/OBXrally/

Updated rally pictures and information will be put on the Website by November 2017.

Participants—thank you for making an unforgettable rally experience!
