RV Community Supports Motor Enthusiasts with New Rally

Published on May 24th, 2022 by Contributor

There’s a New Rally for Motorcyclists, 3 & 4-Wheelers in the RV Community

As anyone in the RV community knows, RVers are a tight, supportive group. Within the RV community are smaller groups that share one or more specific interests. Now, a new group is coming together for motor enthusiasts which includes any RVer who likes or wants to travel with their motorcycle, trike, side by side, sidecar, golf cart or any motorized large toy.  

A new rally has grown from this RV community and will be held September 22-25, 2022, in Bandera, Texas near San Antonio.  Large toy enthusiasts should attend the rally not only to experience all types of hauling demonstrations and seminars but to learn from other attendees and share their experiences too. When you haul large toys, it isn’t about just strapping it on the back and heading out. There are many additional things to learn, consider and plan for each trip.  

An RV Rally Born from Experience

The first ever RV & Motorcycle Rally is being hosted by Will and Lucinda Belden of Direction Wide Open (DWO).  The concept for the rally grew out of the hosts’ own experiences and stories gathered from the RV community along their travels as full-timers.  DWO travels in a 44ft fifth wheel hauling a sidecar and a Harley Heritage. They have traversed the U.S. for several years now sharing their RV & motorcycle experiences via rallies, international motorcycle shows as well as through RV & motorcycle magazines like RV LIFE, Ride Texas, Rootless Living, RV Today, The Sidecarist and Escapees.  They also have two books on Amazon: 14 Sturgis Rally Rides in 6 Days and RVing with Motorcycles and Other Outdoor Toys.

The Motorcycle Community Joins the RV Community

The goal of this new rally is to create an atmosphere of learning and knowledge-sharing vital to making traveling with large toys easy, fun, and safe. Not only will there be live demonstrations and seminars on hauling large toys, but there will also be several activities at the rally that are RV & motorcycle specific – created especially for the rally like:

  • Newly Rig Game
  • Tricked-Out & Treat Crawl
  • and All Wheels Trivia

There will also be meet-and-greets, coffee talks in the mornings, group rides through the hill country, radio shoutouts on air, and campfires at night.  Every moment is a time to connect and meet others in the RV community who travel with large, motorized toys.  All this is made possible by the top sponsor, Grand Design RV. Additional media sponsors are RV LIFE and Ride Texas, with supporting sponsors:  MASA Medical Transport Solutions, Harvest Hosts, Coastal Bend Distilling Company, Escapees and MyRVRadio.

The entire rally will be wrapped in great music, bands, and food vendors.  There will also be a vendor market to check out the latest toy hauling options in the industry.  Look for cool vendors like Rampage, Stinger Trailers, and Texas Sidecar.
