The Official 2019 International Rally Souvenir Shirt is Here!!

 Who doesn't love the  Little Red Truck?  The Theme for this Years International rally  is "Back to Our Roots"  So our Official Merchandise Vendor "Stitches on the Road" has taken our vision of an historic look back at the Rv Industry and given us a really cute Rally shirt!  This was designed to depict our rally time here at the historic hub of the Rv Industry! 

The Front of our Shirt will be a very nice embroidered SOITC logo and the back of the shirt will have  a high definition Heat transfer of the popular retro Lil Red truck and vintage 5th Wheel!

You Can Click on the link below and print off the order form as well as see the design and mail it to Stitches on the Road.
