Default 2019 Shipshewana Not So Mini Rally

We are planning another Shipshewana mini Rally beginning Wednesday June 5, 2019 until Sunday June 9, 2019 in Shipshewana Indiana. The Rally Location will once again be the Shipshewana North Campground and Cabins (wanabees note, there are a few cabins available here). The website for the campground is http://www.shipshewanacampgroundnorth.com (check out the cool Drone video of the campground full of Bluebirds on this website), and the phone number is (260) 768-7770. Ask for Uma or Sam and tell them you are with the Bluebird Group. You can also drop my name if need be.

PLEASE MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS BY PHONE AS THERE ARE ADVANTAGES FOR BLUEBIRDS MAKING PHONE RESERVATIONS. ON-LINE RESERVATIONS HAVE SOME STRINGS ATTACHED. DON’T MAKE RESERVATIONS ON LINE.

This is an older campground with mostly 30 amp sites, but a few 50 Amp pull through sites are available. Hopefully we have planned it early enough that we won’t need much air conditioning. We really like this campground as it is quiet and has an ice cream store right on the site. They really like us too.

What do we do at this rally you ask? We plan nothing except one event that will likely involve a carry in dinner. Once again there will be a night at Rowland and Joanne’s Arcade, and maybe a dinner or 2 out. We don’t have awards, and we don’t plan tech sessions. We plan nothing because this is the Rally where the Boys go shopping. You read it right, there are several, many, a bunch of surplus stores within striking distance, and we come back with car fulls of RV trinkets. Some spend thousands, others spend some. The girls, if they trust us to be alone with credit cards, go to town with their own credit cards and shop in all of the quaint little Amish shops.

Shipshewana also has a huge flea market every week on Tuesday and Wednesday. You can google that to get the details if you are interested. You may have to come early to go there, but don’t spend all of your money there because there are other, better things to buy.

This location offers other services.
National RV Refrigeration. Many ‘Bird owners can’t say enough about Leon. Each year Leon works on several Bluebirds. He’s the go to guy for refrigerator problems as several Woggers can attest. His price is more than fair, he does a really good job, and he’s right next door to the campground. He does air conditioners too. His website is http://www.fixyourfridge.com. If you have a need here, call Leon for an appointment and to make sure he has enough time to get what you need.

Stuarts Service in Elkhart is an authorized HWH repair facility. The website is http://www.rvleveling.com. You really need to call ahead here for an appointment as it seems they have limited hours. The phone number is on the website.

Ramco Mirrors is close by in Elkhart, and bird mirrors have been rebuilt here.

Mr. Wrench Service and Repair 260-768-4216 is a Powertech Service Center


There are also lots of other RV related manufacturers around the Elkhart area and this is only a half hour away. Lambright’s for furniture is a popular spot, and Bradd and Hall is also nearby. Check the display ad section of your FMCA magazine for information.

Looking forward to seeing you there !!!

I was just looking around the area with Google maps. Wow... There is a lot, well more like almost a third of the RV industry up there. Have you seen that they added an RV park and Service Center to the Flea Market?

This place is crazy! I need to be there!
I just have to talk the wife into it. She has pump sticker shock lately.

Well I made the list. Looking forward to seeing something new. I'll deal with Bluebird6's fuel concerns later.
