Hey all you good folks, does MAK still have the Bus Convertors Convention in Arizonia every year? If so when is the next one.

I don't believe he is having it this year.  Maybe he's getting sick of doing it.  I remember the first one I went to in '95 at Laughlin, Nv.  MAK put it on and it was a doozy.  Over 200 buses, big tent set up in the parking lot for venders, Oak Ridge Boys did a concert for us, etc.  I only had my bed and bathroom in with the electrical also.  Used the electric Norcold chest freezer/refrigerator, microwave, hot plate, coffee maker just on the floor with a pool chair.  Loved it, had the time of my life-just wish MAK would do it again.  If he doesn't want to do it, maybe I'll look into it.  Good Luck, TomC

Hi Two Cycle, welcome to Mak's Board

Allow me to make a suggestion. Plan on attending Bussin' 2008 (Jack Conrad's Rally in Arcadia, Florida.) This year we had over 280 coaches and for 2008 plans are being made for 350 to 400 busses.

There are full hook up spaces, occasional use generator areas and a 24 hour generator area.

We have an 8000 sq ft.covered area for seminars all weekend long. Food, music and parties will abound at the Bussin 2008 Rally.

I will offer much more information as the year progresses so look for a new website coming that will be just for Bussin' 2008 with information about all the activities and vendors. You will even be able to register on line.

I know it's a long ride for the folks on the west coast but believe me, it will be worth it.

Great Mike, Thanks for the generous offer. Hopefully someone will step up.
It would be a great time for all I am sure.
Anybody up for it?

Happy Trails,
