Show and Tell

We will have a show and tell again this year and it will follow last years format. Anyone who wishes to participate can post their mods on this thread. When you arrive at the rally, you will be given a ribbon to tie on your hitch indicating that you are a participant. You will be responsible to print out your mods on a sheet of paper and post it on your trailer (I know it's low tech and old school but hanging a flash drive on the trailer just doesn't seem like a good idea, too hard to read). Any time during the rally, people can individually get together to see what others have done to personalize their rigs. With such a large turnout, this method seems to work well and it's a great way to get to know each other. Ladies, this is for you also. Many modifications have been done inside the trailers as far as setting up kitchens, personalizing the living space, etc.
You can also list your mods on the rally questionaire and they will be posted to the rally book but if you post it here, you can add to or modify your list as needed.

Bump

Here's a reminder to start getting yor lists together to give others ideas for improvements.

8/10 reminder

All who want to participate in the show and tell, please read the above post. We're looking forward to a big turnout. Many mods have been made by a lot of us and it's nice to share our ideas with others who would also like to personalize their rolling homes.

8/20 reminder

Don't forget to get your lists printed out so you can display the improvements you made to make your homes your own. We all can benefit from each others ideas.

9/10 reminder
Get your lists ready to post on your rigs and proudly show off your improvements. See you all soon.

9/18 Reminder

Don't forget to print out your modification lists so they can be posted on your rig. You can pick up an orange ribbon from me to tie on your hitch so people know who is participating. See you all soon.

Hey Jimi! Is there anything that is original on your unit? With a list like that it's got to be a whole new one! Thanks for taking on the Show and Tell Coordinator!

Rondo,
I'm still modifying it. Like Monk used to say, "It's a blessing and a curse".

John,
With the large amount of people, no amount of set time would work. Doing it on a one to one basis at each persons convenience is the only way that we can get the most coverage.

That will work. You might also get together during one of the events and set a time convenient to both.
