We have it on our schedule and will help out where we can.
Put us down for the whole thing start to finish.
Please keep the Tornado's and Hail storm away for that period of time.

Looking forward to using that handy App, again.

Hello All,

We have never been to any RV rally and a considering making this our first. We purchased a 2013 Bighorn last year and are loving living in it!!! Just a few question right off the bat.

What is the steps do ya'll take in preparing to go to a rally? When registering for the rally will this take care of the rv camping site? Or is that a separate step?

Hi james-n-terra,

Welcome to the Heartland Owners Forum. Arrangements for rallies can vary, but for the North American Goshen Rally, during the registration process you'll be able to select a site, or a section of the fairgrounds. Once registration opens, people claim their choice of site/section, so registering early gives you more choices. Registration typically opens somewhere around March 1 (but you'll want to keep an eye on the forum for the actual date/time).

Prior to opening of registration, you'll want to familiarize yourself with the fairgrounds map to help when picking a site. You'll also want to look at the Rally information on the forum (as we get into early 2021) so as to understand which optional activities you'll want to sign up for. Some of the activities, like area bus tours, or Amish meals, charge a fee. Fee-based activities show up on the registration form. The many, many free activities are not part of registration.

I just realized that the 2019 Goshen Rally information is all still online. The 2021 rally won't be exactly the same, but this link (https://heartlandowners.org/showthread.php/70040-EVENT-North-American-Heartland-Rally-IN-Goshen-6-10-2019-to-6-16-2019?p=579675#post579675) will give a pretty good idea of what to expect. The links appear to be active and supporting documents still available.

My trip to the East is not working out this year - gee, wonder why! The dog shows I had planned have all cancelled! Bah Humbug!

SO, the silver lining is I might be able to work out my second trip to the North American Rally!

As we get closer and I know better, I would love to help out with the dog park and activities! Maybe we can introduce Barn Hunt or Trailing and Location!

Hi Janet - sorry to hear your travel plans have been falling through. Like everyone's I guess.

Happy to hear you may be able to join us again in Goshen. And, we'd LOVE to have your assistance with the Bark Park. Right now, I'm looking for a person to lead the Bark Park effort. Then that person would recruit a few others to be on the team.

Ideally, the leader and team members would arrive for the full pre-rally so the Bark Park could get setup for use as early as possible as most attendees arrive prior to and during the pre-rally.

Have I described anyone here? :). I'll have created a thread for the Bark Park and we can move that discussion there - link (https://heartlandowners.org/showthread.php/78547-2021-Goshen-Rally-Bark-Park?p=640228&viewfull=1#post640228) :)

Unfortunately we will not be attending the 2021 National. We will be getting ready for our 55th wedding Anniversary with our two sons and daughter-in-laws hopefully in Hawaii.

Sure will miss seeing everyone and all the good food.

Nope - not cancelled. Having some issue with past rallies falling off the list as they should, a couple months after they're held. In this case, our developer must have made an error.

I'll get the rally thread back up and running soon.

Looking at pricing from 5 Star Detail for the 2019 Goshen Rally, this is what was charged then:

2019 Pricing
RV Full Exterior Detail (Wash/Wax/Wheels)
5th Wheel / Travel Trailer (30’ to 35’)……………………………………………..$300
5th Wheel / Travel Trailer (36’ to 40’).…………………………………………….$350
5th Wheel / Travel Trailer (41’ to 45’).…………………………………………….$400

Really sorry you guys have decided to let go your 2020 Heartland RV. We just purchased our 2021 Newport in Novasota Texas a month ago and love it. Those guys did a bang up job PI-ing the unit before we left. Much better service than the last dealership we purchased a Heartland product from.

Hope you decision was based on other issues, not with Heartland!

Paul Rink,,, will be attending the 2021 Rally.

Yes, the Goshen Rally is still planned to be held. In fact, Julie and I are working on all the planning now. Of course, things could change based on the state of COVID at that time. We'll keep everyone updated on this forum and a variety of Facebook groups. We'll also push out an email update to Heartland Owners Club members.

Hi all! Happy New Year!

I am in the planning stages of this year's epic coast to coast trip and, of course, the Rally is in the plans!

However, I may need to leave early to take Fast Freddie to a Scottish Terrier show in IL.

If I am going to head out early, is there any parking area that would be better than the rest? In 2017, I was in the racetrack and really liked it there...

Thanks!
Janet

Hi Janet - great to hear you plan to make the rally. With only a couple of exceptions, all areas should be no problem to hook and go when you need to, without needing anyone else to move for you.

One exception is in the South section on east side Maple Street next to the practice arena. The reason this small stretch can be tricky is we park RVs back to back and those sites that will face this practice arena can be tight to pull forward. We like to park those early on and pull them through to park them initially.

That all said, I suggest you request to be parked in the infield like you did in 2017 - just be sure to let the parking team member who leads you there, know you need an easy-out. The other exception is here in the infield as there are a of couple spaces where we park rigs parallel to the utilities instead of back-in and those couple would be dicey.

See you in June!

Yes. We’re the second RV in the picture. The Bighorns on either side were already there. It was “fun” getting in.
