BYOV  October 2022

Bring Your Own Vehicle – Pahrump, Nevada

Volunteer and Recipient information and applications will be posted on the HOWA website during August 2022.

In April 2022, in Pahrump, Nevada, Homes On Wheels Alliance held its very first Bring Your Own Vehicle event. It was a great success serving the recipients and bringing together the volunteers from the nomad community strengthening bonds and friendships. Check out this link about the April 2022 BYOV event.

Another BYOV event is planned for October 2022. Applications to receive help with specific vehicle build projects AND for volunteers to assist with the event will be posted on this website sometime in August 2022. At that time, you will be able to find the application to be the recipient of a project on the HOWA website. The volunteer positions, descriptions and application will be posted on the HOWA website as well. 

Please note that there will be no mechanical work done at the event.

Please keep checking back for updates!

WRTR and RTR January 2023

Women’s Rubber Tramp Rendezvous and Rubber Tramp Rendezvous – Quartzsite, Arizona

Volunteer positions descriptions and an online application will be posted on the HOWA website around the end of November 2022.

For over a decade, thousands of nomads gather together in the Quartzsite, Arizona area during the month of January to take part in the WRTR and RTR. It is a wonderful opportunity to connect with old friends and make new ones. During the RTRs, there are classes and presentations taught by experienced nomads on the basics of successful nomad living, open house days when nomads show off their homes on wheels, meet and greets with Bob Wells and Suanne Carlson (co-founders of HOWA), and a gigantic free pile where nomads swap items to line their rigs. 

These events run for a total of about two weeks. As you can imagine, it takes a fair number of volunteers to organize and help host this wonderful gathering. Volunteering offers you a way to be involved at a whole different level than just attending. 

Here are some links to some of the presentations at past and online RTRs.

Volunteer positions descriptions and an online application will be posted on the HOWA website around the end of November 2022.
