Re: Expo East 2014 Asheville NC

Funny. We actually bought a couple kits to spray the entire van but are going a different route so we returned them. If that doesn't work out we'll at least spray the roof. We've owned boats and fiberglass campers so covering the top will cut down on some of our maintenance.

Re: Expo East 2014 Asheville NC

We completed replacing the penthouse bolts --> viewtopic.php?f=13&t=14253

We have quite a bit of the butyl tape left, pic in linked topic, so if you want us to bring some to Expo East just say the word.

Re: Expo East 2014 Asheville NC

Expo East weekend passes ($55 for 1 person $95 for a family) are now available for purchase... so are weekend camping passes ($35) for those that want to be onsite. Camping is not included in the weekend pass so buy both if you want to attend and camp onsite.

Eric, this is for you!

Got the email about the passes earlier. Coming here to update but I was beaten to the punch.

Thanks John, and Brian. For some reason they didn't email me.

Re: Expo East 2014 Asheville NC

For those of you attending, check who the vendors are, you might be able to score a good deal.

I picked up my Oz Tent at a very good price, with no shipping charges when I met the dealer/importer at Overland Expo in AZ a few years back. Always better to make a deal first so you know they'll have the right items with them.

Re: Expo East 2014 Asheville NC

OK, Here goes We went from $10 day passes to $55? And the supposed $10/day camping fee, which by the way includes nothing, not even a level spot, went to $35???? What's with that? For the privilege of being marketed to all weekend? I just want to hang out with some like minded folks. Who gets all the change collected from this event? Perhaps it's just the mindset of the Eastern U.S. to rape people for camping. Why don't I just go to Pigeon Forge and pay that to bump awnings with the next guy in a parking lot and get the free shower? Let's see, I paid about $100 total on my recent PNW trip to camp for 20 nights, and over here I get to pay $35 just to pop the top. Hmmmm.

Can someone confirm what I think I read where it was $10 per night to camp at Expo west?
