Perry Swap Meet
Who's going and what are you bringing to sell? We always seem to have a good time at this event. Well worth the drive for us.

RE: Perry Swap Meet
I have to check it out. It is only a 15 hour drive. The wife wants to go too, and I will not be able to bring the van, so I can't get too much :-( Hope the cheap motels aren't booked.

RE: Perry Swap Meet
Man, if you are driving 15 hours, yu need to bring a BIG truck. It is the biggest swapmeet in the US, and the prices are usually pretty good. Considering the Canadien-USexchange rate, you could fill up a truck pretty nicely...haha.
Hotels are usually pretty reasonable. They range from $50-$75 USD, some even cheaper. You will have a blast.

RE: Perry Swap Meet
My van is 25 years old too.  We will have to drive around Florida for a month with it too, so I will have to limit myself to the car.  If I don't get much, I won't save much. Hmm. I could mail it home.

RE: Perry Swap Meet
Perry is the largest swap meet in the southeast. it is a combo for the normal swap item stuff as well as new stuff from top name vendors. The only down side is by Saturday afternoon 2pm the place is a ghost town as the show is Friday afternoon and Saturday. Get a room early ... the ones around the site sell out a year in advance.

It is a great time.

RE: Perry Swap Meet
I already have our hotel room reserved. Tommy definately bring the heli. Thanks. I will see you there early Friday.

RE: Perry Swap Meet
A group of us from Louisville, KY are coming down. I got my motel room and table reserved. I will be selling a big Fleet Biplane and an entry-level ducted fan jet. Maybe some glow engines.

I'll be looking for big warbirds, maybe a new Futaba radio.

If you're on the fence about it, you should really go! It's like Disney World for model airplanes!

RE: Perry Swap Meet
If, by chance, the Perry motels are full, you might look at Warner Robins or Byron GA.
Both have fairly new decent motels, and relatively low prices.
RV camping on the fairgrounds fills up fairly fast.

RE: Perry Swap Meet
I usually bring an empty pick up and a full wallet! This year I will be joining some of my fellow DCAM flyers and sell a few things....A 98" fiberglass UAV drone ARF NITB, two Goldberg Eagle kits NITB, several other kits, several assembled used park flyers, and lots of parts. Not sure what I'll be shopping for, just see whats there and "trips my trigger". I love Perry!!

stuka 02-05-2013 09:03 AM

RE: Perry Swap Meet
Well it looks like we will be bringing up a RTF Top Flite P-47 giant ARF.G-62 and Robart landing gear. Airplane has 6 flights on it. Let me know if anyone wants to see it before we bring it into the show. We have been pretty lucky the past few years and have most stuff sold before we make it to the tables.

It is a great time for sure. You will have a great time. It is a festive type atmosphere and there is fun even after hours. Be sure and looks some of us up when you get there. It is nice to put faces to some of the names here. Have a safe trip, I am sure this will not be your last.

RE: Perry Swap Meet
Speaking of Warner Robins, a trip to the Museum of Aviation there is well worth it.
