REVEL-MODE VAN RALLY

Annual Gatherings For Van Enthusiasts with an Off-Grid Dream

At this year's Revel-Mode Van Rally,

THE REVEL CLUB will be running the Educational Series, 4x4 Van Training and Overland Workshops, as well as Excursions into the back country of Moab!

What people had to say about last year's 2021 rally...

I especially enjoyed visiting with and learning from the vendors, the raffle, and just mingling with and meeting a lot of great people!

I attended the 3rd annual Revel Van Rally which was a first for me. I decided to go last minute and got put on the wait list. I was excited when I was notified that I had got a spot. I thought that Rally was well done and a huge success!




We’ve had our Revel since March and this was a great opportunity to take a road trip and get into the Revel community.

The event was well organized and provided a good way to learn more about the rig. Nice to see so many people who with positive Revel experience and there were plenty of newbies like us with lots to learn.

Well worth the cost! And to my surprise, the porta potties were shockingly clean! Nice job by organizers and vendors!  

A great event to get to know other likeminded people,

talk to the distributors and installers of optional modifications, learn about topics of interest and spend a weekend in a beautiful mountainous environment.
