MOAB 2015 RV FORUM ANNUAL RALLY, MAY 10-16, 2015
« on: May 16, 2014, 05:11:38 PM »
We had a great rally this year and now it's time to sign up for a Moab rally NEXT year – 2015.  The dates are May 10-16, 2015 (7 nights, departing May 17th).  We can't get into Portal any earlier than the week of May 10th because the FMCA four-wheeling group has reserved the entire park for the previous week.  Moab and Portal RV Park have become very popular and both are full from Jeep Week at Easter until the week of May 10th!

If you plan to come to our rally, please make your reservation early.  If you decide six months from now that you cannot attend, it's easy to cancel, but it may not be as easy to get a site if you wait too long.  For the last two years Portal has been full every night during our rally.  We'll do it the same way we have in previous years, e.g. everyone makes their own INDIVIDUAL reservations.  We do not make group reservations like some of the more formal organizations such as FMCA.  This causes some confusion because Portal knows us as the RV Forum.  The owner, Doug, has been very accommodating by allowing us to register as individuals but treating us as a group so we can use the pavilion for happy hour.  Portal likes having us and we like going there, but there have been some issues regarding Portal's cancellation policy.  We have agreed to the following arrangement that we hope will work for everyone.

Each person needs to call Portal to make their own reservation.  Portal's cancellation policy is that individuals can cancel up to 48 hours in advance of arrival without incurring charges for the entire time.  Group reservations cannot be canceled without being charged for the entire reserved time.  This policy was put in effect after an entire group did not show up and they did not notify Portal that they were not coming.  We are not set up with Portal as a formal group.  Our agreement with Doug is that we in the RV Forum will try to fill any cancellations within the RV Forum.  Doug realizes that we've been doing this informally but now it is formal.  I will start a list of attendees.  When you make your reservation, please let us know within this topic.  If you need to cancel your reservation, please let us know immediately within this topic so that someone else can take your reservation.  Doug requests that you please not hang on to your reservation for weeks thinking that it will help another RV Forum person.  If no one in the RV Forum speaks up and wants to take over your reservation within two days (not weeks!) please cancel right away because Portal needs to know if sites will be empty so they can fill them with non-RV Forum visitors.  Portal's cancellation policy is stated on your reservation confirmation and you need to read it because it says you MAY be charged for canceling.

Portal will not promise a specific site.  You can request a site and they will try to accommodate your request, but please don't argue with them if you don't get the site you want.  We all need to remember that they are running a business and it's difficult trying to get blocks of days for any one person and a specific site.  It sometimes necessitates shifting people around.  Moreover, as more sites in the new section are sold there may be some that are no longer in the rental pool or the owner may want to use it on the same dates you have requested.  Please remember that you will get more help with honey than vinegar!  As of now sites M-16, M-20, M-21 and M-24 have three-story casitas on them and site R-51 has a one-story casita.  When you talk about sites, the “old” campground is on the north side with sites 1 through 46.  The “new” resort is on the south side and has two rows of M sites and one row of R sites.  It’s a good idea to follow through and check your reservation with Portal as the time gets closer.

The information you need is:
Portal RV Resort
1261 N. Hwy. 191
Moab, UT 84532
Phone: 435-259-6108
http://www.portalrvresort.com
Email: info@portalrvresort.com

Please post in this topic when you make a reservation or if you cancel so that we all will know who is attending.  The first names on the 2015 Moab Rally Attendees List are:

Beard, Susan & John (aka Oscar Mike)
FitzGerald, Ardra (aka ArdraF) & Jerry (aka JerryF), site 24
Talmon, Trina & Steve (aka Captsteve)

Go to http://www.portalrvresort.com/w/site-map-res.pdf to see Portal's site map.  The new section with rows M and R have a cement pad and you have access to the swimming pool, hot tub, and dog park.  The old section with numbered sites but no alpha prefix is more rustic with gravel and they do not have access to the pool and spa but there is a dog run and swimming pond/beach.  If you have been to Portal in earlier years, please note there are site numbering changes because of confusion between similarly numbered sites in the old and new sections.  The following latitude and longitude for your GPS will turn you into the property.  N38 35.367  W109 34.130  Portal's elevation is 3,926 feet.

Interest in returning to Moab in May 2015 has waned so we will NOT be attending the proposed 2015 rally either.  All of our best friends are going the rally in Texas.  There are a variety of reasons for changing but that doesn't mean we don't still love Moab.  As you may have seen, Mike Zuech is planning an October 2015 rally at Moab.

Perhaps one of the moderators can close this discussion so no one else signs up for May 2015.  Thanks!
