We invite all vendors to attend, as our rally guests enjoy the opportunity to purchase riding and camping gear.

We ask that each vendor:

  1. Donate a door prize
  2. Register each member of the vendor team.
  3. Check in with Rally Registration staff BEFORE setting up.
  4. For those planning to bring a RV, please contact our hosts, Parkers Crossroads RV Park & Campground  regarding daily RV Rates, as RV campsites are NOT included in the rally fee.  Phone:  (731) 968-9939  or Email: reservations@pcrvpark.com .

Vendor space is limited and is issued on a first-come basis. If you are considering attending as a vendor, please contact vendors@bmwrams.com by Friday, September 15, 2017. 

Welcome to the RAMS Rally Door Prize Hut!

The Door Prize drawings are one of the highlights of our rally weekend. Each person registered for the full Rally receives Door Prize tickets, which may be divided between several door prizes.

Please note:  Saturday Day Pass holders do not receive Door Prize tickets; however, they can pay an additional $20 at the Rally to upgrade to the full Rally package.

Each Door Prize received is assigned a number with a corresponding envelope; Grand Prize donations are also numbered and assigned a corresponding box to allow rallygoers the opportunity to choose how they wish to use their tickets.

The Door Prize Hut is a great gathering place for rally attendees to examine and discuss the Door Prize items prior to making their selection(s). The Hut has been mistaken for a vendor more than once, with first-time attendees asking if they can purchase items!

Drawings start on Saturday morning, with the Grand Prize Drawings ocurring at the Closing Ceremony on Saturday afternoon.

We publicize all door prize contributors, both at the rally and during the year on our website.  We would be happy to circulate any printed material that you might want to send along.

.
1, Seller to give us a list of items for sale and appropriate detail of what bike it fits
2. Pre priced tags on items with their name – so we can keep individuals monies separate  
3. Cell #s of sellers in cases of offers below tagged prices on expensive items or agreed % off ,  
4. Transportation of items to the rally site as the total responsibility of the seller and also pickup of left over items after rally.
5. If a complete and running bike is for sale we would ask that the seller to be available by cell phone etc. and personally finalize the deal individually with the buyer --- test ride – title details etc.
Motorcycle parts and related Items for sale (preferably BMW) can be brought to us almost at any time we are close by or have the Swap market open through out the weekend..   
 This is a free service, no commissions charged.
 We will do our best to sell your items.
