Smile Oshkosh

I am planning on flying to Oshkosh this year and parking in the home built camping section. Is there a Van's RV area?

Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated.

Gary

The whole HBC might as well be the “RV” area. It’s a sea of RVs.

Yeah, hold up your sign HBC and you'll land in heaven. AKA "sea of RVs".
There is nothing more to do or say. Enjoy. See ya' there.

Wink One small thing to add

Well there is one small thing to add: bring earplugs in case you're tied down close to the porta-potties. The slamming doors in the middle of the night get a little old.

...I keep forgetting to bring foam door seal to stick around those door edges. Maybe this will be the year.

The first 512 times the tour helicopter overflies HBC, its all about the cool atmosphere. The second 512 times, it’s mildly annoying. The third 512 times, (nap time midweek) you’re scouring the aero-mart for parts to build a SAM.

Sorry it disagree but the sound of a helicopter never gets old.

Yep. Assuming you can survive ATC's attempt to kill you on the way in, once you get on the ground the Oshkosh folks do an outstanding job of getting you with your brethren.
