Former TCT Leaders Forrest & Jeri Bone will be part of the 2023 Hall of Fame Inductees with a ceremony on Monday August 21st at the RV Museum in Elkhart, Indiana.

To celebrate this event, Tin Can Tourists and the Vintage Airstream Club members are invited to camp at the museum and take part in the festivities.

The rally will be held on the grounds of the museum. Dry camping or electric only will be available. Potable water available and two dump stations are available on-site. Hoses for trailer washing and cleanup will be available. A large enclosed pavilion with banquet room will be available to use that has air conditioning, bathrooms and meeting facilities. We are working on providing shower facilities at nearby campgrounds, water park or schools.

Induction Ceremony Tickets are available for a discount through the rally registration form. We are bundling the tickets together and purchasing entire tables so all of the rally participants will be seated together. Dress code is business casual and vintage attire is encouraged for our rally participants. Have fun with it. The museum is excited to have a “different” group at ceremony than usual audience.

Camping on hard surfaces, so plan on that for your awning needs – no stakes allowed.
