Largest Annual MV Gathering & Swap Meet in the West, Camp Plymouth April 14-19, 2020

The 43rd annual military vehicle swap meet and gathering in North-Central California is making it's second Spring appearance in Plymouth April 14-19, 2020. This is the largest annual MV event west the Mississippi, formerly located at campgrounds in Petaluma, Tower Park, Big Bear Park, and near Patterson, CA. Those who came to the new venue in the historic California Gold Rush country and winery region in April 2019 found it solved past issues with having enough campsites, visitor parking, and display space. The Petaluma KOA owner charged a visitor fee. Attendance at Camp Plymouth was the most ever!

The event is again hosted by the Military Vehicle Collectors of California. It will be at the 49er RV Village for RVs, travel trailers, tent trailers, other camping rigs, and those renting cabins, PLUS the adjacent Amador County Fairgrounds for all tent and truck campers, MV showcases, other displays, and visitor parking. The swap meet will be throughout the event. There is a path and open gate between the two venues.

  • Free admission
  • Free visitor parking
  • Parking / display area for those commuting from home or hotel in MVs
  • No vendor fee, pro and amateur sellers must be in a rented campsite or cabin
  • No MV registration fee
  • Not a static MV show, they may be driven in and out and throughout both venues
  • Tracked vehicles with steel grousers on the dirt and grass areas of the fairgrounds only, including the showcase arena.

THREE PLANNED SHOWCASES: ARMOR, TRUCKS 2 1/2 TON AND LARGER, AND HMMWVs

Plenty of activities and features:

  • MV Poker Rally Driving Excursion
  • Dinners
  • Ladies' Activities
  • Meetings
  • 49er amenities include pool, hot tub, laundry, café, store, rec hall, kid's play area, fishing
  • Hotels, restaurants, stores, many wineries, historic Gold Country sites, and antique stores abound in quaint, historic Plymouth and nearby
  • Raffle Friday evening to include the new GPW jeep Maxi-Kit with Frame that was given to the MVCC by April 2019 sponsor MD Juan but arrived too late to be raffled then. There will be a maximum number of raffle tickets sold, details later.

We are seeking donated raffle items for this annual fundraiser. Vendors stand up and be recognized! Contact a MVCC officer listed at www.MVCCNews.net.

Campsite reservation details will be announced soon. DO NOT CONTACT the 49er OFFICE. Come back here for updates or read the MVCC newsletter.
If you had a campsite or cabin at the April 2019 event, Wagonmistress Jo-Ann has your name on it for April 2020. September Camp Plymouth reservations have nothing to do with the Spring event.

Hopefully event details will be up on www.MVCCNews.net soon.

The showcase will have all our 2 1/2 ton and larger trucks displayed together for an impressive display for the public. It’ll be a crowd pleaser for sure. I’ll see about even having a “people’s choice” award. I’m also hoping to organize a “ rolling thunder”.
