Southern California


We were one of the first Chapters Chartered in S M A R T  and today claim one of the largest memberships with just under 50 rigs (just under 100 people). We have Class "A"s, "B"s, "C"s, Trailers and 5th Wheelers of all sizes. We are a fantastic bunch of fun loving, friendly, caring folks with members from all branches and all ranks of military services, both U.S & Canadian. Our membership is basically made of folks from within 100 miles of Vista, CA but this is not a rule as we do have some members from Arizona, Oregon and even a Canadian "Snow Bird".

Our Chapter holds quarterly musters (rallies) in the Southern California area within 150 miles of Vista, along with our annual Christmas Luncheon in Oceanside, CA. With a vote of the membership, we do venture out further from time to time. Our musters are 4 days in length Mon. to Fri. Sometimes we will combine a musters with one of the "California Warriors" Chapter.

We encourage you to visit us at one of our musters and check us out. We love company. We invite you to join our ranks and share the fellowship and fun that make the SoCal Chapter of S M A R T  such a great way to enjoy the RVing experience.

Should you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact our President.
