Unfortunately my wife and I will be missing it. Instead we'll be out on the NMBDR with our dog's getting away from civilization as much as we can. I hope everyone going to the expo has a great time.

Hope you all had as much fun as I did!

I am sure I met many of you without even realizing it since I was working at the check in booth / HQ! What a great event

I attended the expo Saturday. For my first expo It was exciting and overwhelmed with all the people and products. I have an idea of how I will be adding to my trailer. I meet a few member and I also met Michael the founder. He is a cool in person as he is on the videos. I most definitely will be attending the four day even next year. I HAD A BLAST

Had so much fun coming up with new ideas looking at everything. However, does anyone else feel that everything seem to cost WAY more expensive than I thought it should?

You are not alone. The price ranges on the trailers , products was ridiculous..... but the overall experience for my first expo was priceless... I’m glad I waited to see what direction I will take with building and adding items to my trailer.

I hear ya. After attending the expo I came up with some more modifications for my trailer also. Little things, but every little thing makes things just a little better. Same exact thing happened last year after I went. The original manufacturer had some new things I'll be incorporating and I showed them some changes I had made that they seem excited about incorporating into newer models of their Terradrop.

We should do a west valley meet up, I can never seem to make the one in Tempe, if it’s still going.

My head is still spinning!!! Sooooo much info., Sooooo many ideas, Sooooo under-budgeted for what we would like to do. We spent a good share of the ride home discussing various ideas for the van and agreed that we did a pretty good job of not impulse buying (we almost bought a trailer on Saturday :coldsweat:). We will be back next year, but will do things a bit differently.

I need to think about something else for a few days. Then I'll start going through all the info. we collected and all the pictures we took and get back to laying out our build.

This was my first time attending the expo; however I spent more time in classes than vendor booths so I missed out on seeing a lot of the cool stuff. What a great group of people to hang around with.
