Tracer, is Sonny’s truck an M211 or M135?
Sonny Hanson's M-135.jpg Mike here's a pic of Sonny's M-135 at Petaluma. I sure miss Sonny and Jim at the meets. If you ever wanted to know anything about 2 1/2 ton trucks, Sonny or Jim could tell ya.

Typo on it, the official dates are 14-19 with Tuesday the 14th a set up day and Sunday the 19th a pull out day, not a show day. But some come earlier and some stay later. Group camping rate is good for a few days before and after. That's good for those who want to take the spouse wine tasting at Shenandoah Wine Country wineries just up the hill from Plymouth or go antiquing in the Gold Country towns.

Thanks Major. I plan on going Monday thru Sunday leaving on Sunday between 9:00-10:00. I plan on bringing the Deuce and trailer this year with all my heavy for sale stuff, so that will be a set up day for me. 😠

Yeah some campers even show up the weekend before. These April meets used to be Friday-Sunday back in the 1970s-mid-80s. It was at a county campground and OHV park west of Patterson. Since there were no site reservations possible, people started arriving earlier and earlier to get sites next to their friends. And being a swap meet/vendor event, buyers like to show up early. When we grew out of that place and went to regular RV parks Big Bear Park, Tower Park, etc., where we could reserve sites, the official start day had been moved to Thursday, then Wednesday, then Tuesday. With a four night camping minimum at 49er RV Village, most folks arrive Tuesday or Wednesday. On the fairgrounds tent/truck camping side, no minimum stay so that handles folks with less time available. This large "Tent Sector" really sets this venue apart from Petaluma and Tower Park that had smaller tent areas. That's why we had a record Spring turnout of campers last April.
