Yes, you will be able to buy and sell from your Fairgrounds tent site. The Swap Meet will be happening in both the RV Park and the Fairgrounds. I talked to the maintenance manager at the Fairgrounds about the swap meet and he is excited to be able to put some jeep parts for sale in front of his shop (which is right next to the tent camping area).

Sorry Frenchman, I misread your post. Yes, you will be able to sell from your RV campsite (as well as the Fairgrounds if you camp there). The manager at the 49er RV Park approved the Swap Meet and is excited to see what we have.

Hi guys,
Rates for campsites at the 49er and the Fairgrounds will be published in the next MVCC newsletter. Look for JoAnn's article with many other interesting details.

We are putting together a list of military vehicle runs/convoys as well as social activities. So far we have trips planed to wineries (the "Wine Wednesday Convoy"), a trip to Sutter Creek for the ladies (Shopping and Brunch), and a Poker Rally set up to run MVs through the area around Plymouth. If there's enough time and interest, I will put together an off road excursion for MVs on local trails near the campgrounds.

There will also be two Showcases on Friday in the Fairgrounds Arena. One will be Bomb Service Trucks and GTBs. The other will be Jeeps. Watch for announcements with more information from the volunteer POCs putting together these Showcases!

My buddy Greg LaLonde(he planned and led the convoys at the last two Spring Meets) isn’t sure yet if he can come but if he can’t, I will, as Second in Command, plan and lead a luncheon convoy on a day yet to be decided(after I coordinate with the Club organizers). I’m thinking Thurs. or Fri. This looks like a great venue!

Gravedigger,
Tent camping sites at the Fairgrounds are 20'x30'. Vendors and sellers will be able to set up and sell from their tent camping sites. If you need more space, I suggest renting more than one space. They're inexpensive ($25/night) and there are plenty of sites.

Reminder that the entire event is the swap meet and vehicle display. Whether you are camping in a RV, travel trailer, toy hauler, or camper shell at 49er RV Village, or in a tent next door at the fairgrounds, or renting a campsite for selling or display and commuting from hotel or home, the event is whatever you make it. Display or sell your MV or militaria. Buy and socialize. Drive in the MV driving activities. It will be BIG!
