The Nation's Premier Van Event ®
The Mission of the National Truck-In ® Board is to not only ensure the continuation of a consistently improving, safe and economical National Truck-In ®, but to provide a celebration of the van for the vanning community, and to encourage the regular practice of rotational locations across the United States so that all vanners in society, regardless of sex, age, social background, can join in that celebration.
The original National Truck-in Board ® was announced in 1980. The original members of the board were hand-picked by Rocky Mountain Vans, holders of the National Truck-in trademark. R.M.V. later turned the trademark rights over to the board.
The purpose of the Nats Board is to administer the Nationals, by taking bids and awarding the rights to each year’s hosts. The Board checks out sites and potential host groups to help insure that the Nationals is as good as it can be each year. Board members are volunteer vanners from around the country, that have a passion for the Nationals and vanning.
The Board consists of 9 members, 9 alternates, and a support team that attends the Nationals every year to help the host run various activities, mainly the show and shine. There is a Board meeting at every Nationals and in February at the Council of Councils meeting. Anyone desiring to join us in our mission to preserve the National Truck-in, please attend one of our meetings.
