Q3. When and where is this rally being held?
A. The rally will be held May 29, 30 and 31 at the Elkhart County 4H Fairgrounds in Goshen, Indiana (about 25 minutes south of the Alliance campus)

Q4. Is Early Camping available at the Fairgrounds?
A. Rally attendees may camp at the Elkhart County 4H Fairgrounds in Goshen, Indiana up to 3 days prior to the rally. If you desire to camp 1, 2 or 3 days, May 26, 27 and 28, the venue requires us to manage those requests and collect camping fees. You will make these reservations with Alliance RV as part of the Rally Registration process.

Q5. If I want to come to the area prior to the early camping days at the Fairgrounds, have any arrangements been made for this?
A. Yes. Elkhart Campground is pleased to host our Allies prior to the rally at the Fairgrounds. They ask that you book a site online at this link.  Here’s a map link to Elkhart Campground.

Q6. I want to be sited next to or near one or more of my friends, can this be accommodated?
A. In many cases, this can be accommodated. Here’s how: All who desire to be sited next to or near one another must all arrive at rally check-in “at the same time”. This is due to a variety of factors with this venue. At registration, attendees will be able to choose from a number of camping areas. So long as all in this group choose the same area and arrive at the same time, one right after the other, best efforts will be made to get you all sited together.

Q7. I understand it’s likely that the rally may sell out quickly. How can I prepare myself for the online registration process?
A. We suggest you read through this FAQ, and bookmark the registration page.

Q8. Can we have campfires?
A. Only if weather conditions are favorable and the area is not in a high-danger state, self-contained, above ground fire pits may be used. The venue does not sell firewood and there are no fire rings at the campsites.

Q9. What kind of cellular voice and data coverage can we expect from the major carriers?
A. Using this map from the FCC and using this address: 17746 County Road 34, Goshen, IN 46528, you’re able to check the voice and data boxes for your carrier. In our check, we found complete voice and data coverage for AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon. We found no coverage for US Cellular.  Note that the rally venue may be just on the edge of T-Mobile data coverage.

Q12. When is check-out?
A. For most attendees, check-out is noon on Saturday, June 1 in accordance with what’s included in the camping portion of your rally registration.  For attendees that want to spend 1 more night, we have been given approval to allow attendees to contract directly with the Fairgrounds office for Saturday night, June 1 with check-out being noon, Sunday, June 2.  Should attendees desire to remain in the area beyond noon Sunday, consider relocating to Elkhart Campground in Elkhart.

Q18. Alliance Factory Tours
A. We plan to do have factory tours during rally week. More info coming soon.

Q19. I have a Valor and would like to use my rear and side patios on my rally site – what camping areas are best for this?
A. We have identified some areas that are the most conducive to the use of Valor patios. That said, we cannot promise that any particular area or site will allow the use of Valor patios at this venue. Those areas to consider are: South, Ring Road (closest to the train tracks) and Draft Horse (close to the horse track and dusty). Your arrival date to the rally venue will also play a part in what may be left in these areas that are most conducive to patio use.

Q20. I’m not great at backing my RV, are the campsites all back-in or are some of them pull-through?
A. None of the sites are pull-through in the traditional sense. Most rows of sites are back-to-back with other sites. That said, those who arrive on the early days may be able to pull-through the site behind theirs and into their own, if the site behind theirs isn’t yet occupied. Also, we’ve got an experienced Parking Team and when needed, they will be able to assist you in getting into your site.

Q21. If I registered for previous Ally Rallies, will my account information still be there and can I access it / update it now?
A. This is unlikely. We’re moving to a new registration and it’s not likley we’ll be able to import your data.

Q22. If I already have an account in the Alliance RV Owners Store or of I create one now, are my Credit Card details stored in the system or can I add them now?
A. No – sorry. The new registration system does not have access to your Credit Card details (number, expiration, CVV) from prior years.

Q23. It’s prior to the public registration launch and I can’t access the Rally Registration system. It’s asking for info I don’t have. Am I doing something wrong?
A. The new Rally Registration system will be locked down until rally registration time.

Q24. Rally Arrival and Departure, what do I need to know?
A. The first thing to know is there isn’t just one arrival day. Depending on how many days early you are arriving, your arrival day could be Sunday, Monday or Tuesday. And for a handful of Allies, your arrival day is Wednesday.

Q25. I’m on a Water / Electric only site (Carnival, Northeast and Yellow), how does the pump-out service work and what other options are there?
A. Follow this link for detail on the holding tank pump-out service. There are three dump stations located Ring Road. If you have a sewer tote, feel free to use it versus purchasing the pump-out service. Note too that there 4 bath houses your your use, should you wish to shift some of your water usage and tankage to those facilities.

Q26. Can I continue camping at the fairgrounds after the conclusion of the Rally on May 31?
A. For attendees that want to spend 1 more night, we have been given approval to allow attendees to contract directly with the Fairgrounds office for Saturday night, June 1 with check-out being noon, Sunday, June 2.  Should attendees desire to remain in the area beyond noon Sunday, consider relocating to Elkhart Campground in Elkhart.

Regardless of your arrival day, the process is similar. See Q16 above for more Gate # info.

Finally, departure day. For most, departure will be Saturday, June 1st by noon. For those who wish to stay over Saturday night, your departure will be Sunday, June 2nd by noon. To add this extra night of camping, attendees must walk over to the Fairgrounds office during the week to register and pay for that night.
