Eggshells in The Outer Banks Partners with Liberty Outdoors

Fri Mar 10, 2017

148916658542784.jpgWAVES, North Carolina - Eggshells in The Outer Banks, an independent, annual fiberglass travel trailer rally, has announced an exclusive sponsorship from Liberty Outdoors - the manufacturer of Little Guy, ParkLiner and Serro Scotty travel trailers. The sponsorship includes merging the fifth annual Little Guy “Tearstock” rally with Eggshells in The Outer Banks, which will attract a numerous variety of teardrop trailer enthusiasts in addition to molded fiberglass owner attendees.

Offering an extended holiday schedule of events, Eggshells in The Outer Banks celebrates the spirit of adventure and discovery on Columbus Day Weekend, Oct. 6-9. Projecting more than 140 people for this year’s attendees, the numbers will likely continue to rise as the strategic combination of marketing efforts enhance a competitive position with opportunity to capture new customers and demand.

"We are very excited to be sponsored by Liberty Outdoors and believe this relationship will redefine the potential that rallies have to the small travel trailer industry," Rally Coordinator Jeannine Patané says. "Little Guy Tearstock rallies have an incredible branding opportunity to bridge owners with potential buyers. These events encourage robust support for product knowledge sharing. We are also thrilled to have Tearstock join us to expand the interest and exposure for all small trailer brands."

The rally is held on Hatteras Island at Camp Hatteras Resort, the only oceanfront to soundfront camping in North Carolina. The resort houses more than 400 RV sites with full hookup on all sites and accommodations include tent sites along with vacation rentals. Guests are just minutes away from shopping, dining and outdoor activities.

A schedule of events will be available at the beginning of September and the public is welcome to view Liberty Outdoors showcase of trailers at the resort’s conference center during the rally weekend. Models include the newly redesigned ParkLiners, Little Guys and Serro Scotty.

“Moving the annual Tearstock event to the Outer Banks was a no-brainer for us," Little Guy Trailers CEO Joe Kicos says. "We’re excited to merge our community of teardrop owners with the Eggshell travel trailer enthusiasts in one incredible location – with the gorgeous ocean backdrop and an exciting line-up of events.”
