2025 Events

Region 6 VAC Gathering:  March 13 – 16, 2025
 Cathedral Caverns Campground – 637 Cave Road, Woodville, Alabama 35776
All vintage airstreams are welcome to attend.

– Originally called Bat Cave, Cathedral Caverns was opened to the public by Jacob Gurley in the 1950’s. The cave was renamed because of its cathedral-like appearance.  Purchased by the state in 1987, it was opened as a State Park in the summer of 2000.  The first feature most people notice about Cathedral Caverns is its massive entrance. The huge opening measures 126 feet wide and 25 feet high, a possible world record for commercial caves. The grand entrance is only the beginning. Inside the cavern are some of the most beautiful formations Mother Nature has ever created including “Goliath”- one of the largest stalagmites in the world measuring 45 feet tall and 243 feet in circumference.   Cathedral Caverns features many amazing sites:  a “caveman” perched atop a flowstone wall, a “frozen” waterfall, a large stalagmite forest and a most improbable stone formation – a stalagmite that is 27 feet tall and 3 inches wide!

The campground is down the hill from the caverns [separate admission is required] and there is shopping and other excursions are available nearby –

You must call and speak to staff at the Park Office to reserve a site with the 15% discount [and they are waiving the registration fee.] Park phone number: 256-888-0230

Vermont Farm Rendezvous
June 9 -12, 2023 Isham Family Farm

Mike and Helen are fellow Airstream owners and have invited the Vintage Airstream Club to share the beauty of their farm located in the Champlain Valley of Vermont.

Conveniently located just 3.5 miles off I-89 in Williston, VT, fifth-generation farmer Mike Isham and his wife Helen Weston operate their historic 108-acre property as a working farm and community center. Throughout the seasons, Isham Family Farm offers maple syrup, pick-your-own blueberries and raspberries, pumpkins, a corn maze, hiking trails, Christmas trees and wreaths.

Also on their farm is a secluded pond with room for parking for up to twelve trailers. We will be boon-docking so no electric, water or dump
facilities. Just a quiet, peaceful weekend spent with like minded souls.

This will be a Rendezvous Meet, which means we will keep it simple. We may do a Coffeehouse in the morning (espresso?) and also thinking about breakfast. If so, there will be a kitty fee. There is no rally or camping fee.

Saturday at 2:00 there is a Magic show in the Event Barn (info on the Farm Website) that weekend if anyone is interested. https://ishamfamilyfarm.com

NOTE: Unfortunately, Pets are not permitted at the Farm.

HOSTS for the Farm Rendezvous are; VAC Region 1 Supreme Commander Gary Campbell and Jane Preli. They are assisted by Vermonters, Mark and Lynne Steinhoff.

Call or text Gary at (207)318-9218 or email wg.campbell@icloud.com to sign up to attend. Only Twelve Airstreams can attend this weekend so sign up soon.

Region 11 Fiesta Time in Arizona Rally
March 9-13, 2022

Vintage Airstream Club Members:
Ken Johansen, President of the Region 11 Airstream Club (ACI), is inviting Vintage Airstream Club (VAC) members from across the USA and Canada to its Fiesta Time in Arizona Rally. The dates are March 9th to March 13th, 2022. The rally will be held at the Pinal County Fairgrounds and Event Center near Casa Grande, AZ.

This Fiesta will include a mariachi band, a rock and roll band, and a classically trained musician who is also a storyteller for evening entertainment. Breakfast will available each morning. Dinner menus are still being developed, but tacos will be available while the mariachi band is performing. Daytime activities will include presentations on tire and battery choices, a demonstration on backing safely and changing a tire correctly, propane and hitch safety, and a field trip to Airstream of Chandler, now the largest Airstream dealer in the world. Have you read a book about the Casa Grande area? Bring it to the rally book discussion session. Do you want to host a caravan? You can find out how by going to that breakout session.

Luke Bernander and Rodney Sly will be making presentations that relate to trailer safety. Luke will also bring his dents-out equipment for those who want their dents to disappear.

This rally will provide opportunities for entertainment and education while enjoying special food, and most important, a place to meet new friends and visit with longtime friends.

While here in central Arizona, consider visiting one our nearby Sky Islands, Mount Lemon. Sky Islands are a unique geological structure that are found in very few places in the world. Climb up a lava flow, Picacho Peak, also a unique geologic structure. Stop at the Benson Visitor Center just off I-10 east of Tucson and ask for information on things to see and do in Cochise County, a county larger than Rhode Island and Connecticut combined.

Visiting Arizona in March 2022 is a wonderful opportunity to go to a well-planned Airstream rally that is not only welcoming vintage Airstreams but featuring vintage with special parking. It is also the first annual Southwest Vintage Airstream Rally, and it is a wonderful time of year to enjoy Arizona.

Lisa Sly, Vintage Airstream Club president, will be present. She is always interested in learning about how each member feels about VAC and hearing suggestions for improvement.

To register for the rally, go to the Region 11 website (link below). The maximum trailer capacity for this event is 125. Be in one those trailers!

Iowa and Minnesota

This is an incredible opportunity to join with other Airstreamers!

  Fun!  Fun!  Fun!
  Lots of places to explore
  Organized for individuals/families to explore the North Shore of Lake Superior
  Opportunities for socially distant gathering.

We’re planning a rolling rally beginning August 20, 2021 to escape the summer heat in Region 8.  We’ll begin the rally at the Pammel State Campground near Winterset, Iowa, and end at Fall Lake Campground located in the Lake Superior National Forest near Ely, Minnesota.  You can join us anywhere along the rally stopping points and leave the really as your schedule dictates.  Participants will make their own reservations and should do so as soon as the reservation window opens for the campgrounds we’ll be using.  Please let us know no later then January 31, 2021, if your interest in participation in the rolling rally.  Contact Lee and Joyce Cantrell at ljcan@twinvalley.net.  You will them be provided with the campground information and itinerary so you can make your reservations once the reservation windows open.  It is important to make reservations sooner rather than later since 2021 is predicted to be a busy camping season and camping sites go quickly in Minnesota and Iowa.  We are limiting the number of units attending to fifteen and to current VAC members.

You MUST contact Lee to reserve one of the spots on this rolling rally!

Some campsites must be reserved NOW.  Please contact Lee NOW.

VACmidwest Schedule Changes

Out of concern for the health of you, our friends and the community at large, we have cancelled the VACmidwest Region 8 Spring Rally 2020.

Reports are that the campground currently is still open, but that could change.  Hosts Tom & Shirley Herron worked with the camp ranger and park board for approval of a refund of your camping fees (minus the $4 on-line registration charge).
Here’s the direct quote from the ranger “Because of the virus concerns, the Marion County Conservation Board has allowed for full refunds of all camping fees, this does not include the $4.00 reservation fee that the website charges when making the reservation.
So the options to cancel a reservation this spring would be to reschedule for a later date or request a refund, the refund will come in the form of a check mailed from the Marion County Auditors office.”
Contact Ranger Mike –   RobertsCreek@iowatelecom.net to cancel for campsite.
Please provide arrival date and an address to mail your refund.

Dates: May 7-10, 2020
Location: Robert’s Creek EAST Campground,1631 Fillmore, Otley, IA
DO NOT turn into the West Campground
6 miles west of the city of Pella on County Highway G28

In addition to the festival we will be near Knoxville Sprint Car Track and Museum.
Also nearby is Red Rock Reservoir and Damn and Visitor Center.
