Eileen and I visited Oshkosh Airventure site on July 6th. Based on a conversation with an EAA contact for Camp Scholler, we were able to clarify the following:
· Official start of Airventure is Monday July 22nd 2019 and closing events occur on Sunday July 28, 2019. Therefore, all RV sites booked for Airventure are booked thru Sunday night with departure on Monday.
· Our currently planned arrival will be on Sunday July 21st to avoid massive amounts of daily traffic during Airventure.
· Camp Scholler campers pay for their camping from the day they secure the site through the end of AirVenture.
· Only one RV and one vehicle per campsite are allowed. Larger RVs will be accommodated at the standard daily camping rates. The buffer for each site is 5’ on each side.
· Average temperatures during the last week of July in Oshkosh are a high of 81 and a low of 63.
· We are discussing arriving around 1:00 pm on Sunday, to stage as a group, so that we are parked together. However, there is no guarantee that we will all be parked together.
Dry Camping (projected rally approach):
· The number of basic (dry camping) sites is for our purposes, unlimited. Dry camping sites allow generator usage between 6:30 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. There is a 24 hour generator area with a limited number of sites available.
· Using a Genturi is advisable for basic sites.
· Basic site price is $27 per day or $216 for the 8 nights. Rally is projected at 5 nights. Therefore, if you choose to depart on Friday you will receive an $81 rebate. Refunds are available for any remaining days minus a 3 day minimum for basic sites.
