The Shawnee News-Star reported that Wendell Simpson of Alabama, the southern regional director for NAARVA, said it is the largest, if not only, African American RV association in the United States.
NAARVA was established in 1993 and had its first meeting in Cincinnati, Ohio.
National camp rallies are hosted every year during the last full week of July. This is the second time the rally has been in Shawnee, the last time being 2012.
