RVs

What is considered an “RV” at The Republic Of Texas Motorcycle Rally?
Bottom line, if you’re sleeping in it and it has wheels, then you’ve got yourself an RV. Everyone who falls into this description will be required to reserve an RV space prior to the rally. For latest information and maps click on the Hotels/RV button on the home page.

Who needs an RV space?
Anyone planning on camping in an RV (except campers pulled by a motorcycle) must have reserved an RV space and obtain a RV pass at registration check-in, in order to gain entrance to the rally RV grounds.

Are there any RV spaces that have electric hookups?
Yes, each year we add more electrical capacity and post the changes and additions on the website. Please check the RV lot maps for information on those with electric hookups. All power is 30 amp 120 volt, with the exception of the gold and platinum ticket holders will have access to 50 amp service. Please make sure that you have adequate extension cords (50 feet is recommended) to hook up to the power.

Can I choose my RV space, or is it ‘first come, first served’?
Each year, on the website, we display maps of pre-numbered spaces in all RV lots. You have the ability to reserve the space of your choice in the numbered lots before you arrive at the rally. There is no need to be waiting in line for the gates to open.

How much is RV parking?
Prices vary based on the size, location and electric hook up availability. Check out the Store/RV Spaces to view the locator maps, prices and availability.

Does my RV Reservation cover my registration fees?
Each RV space reservation includes two rally registrations at no additional charge. If more than two rally registrations per space are required, they may be purchased online or at the rally.

What RV camping information will I receive before the rally, and when should I expect it?
An order confirmation e-mail with an order reference number will be forwarded to you at the completion of the RV reservation transaction. You will be required to bring a ticket with you to claim your RV space.  This ticket is printed from your order following the instructions below. You will not receive anything in the mail.

What are some of the important things that I need to know about the RVs?
Everything must fit in the allotted spaces (campers, trailers, cars, trucks, canopies, motorcycles, etc.). For example, if you have reserved a 20 x 50-foot space, and your truck and trailer have an overall length of 52 feet, you must unhook and pull alongside (within the 20 x 50 space), or reserve a 20 x 80-foot space. We allow only one RV and one car or truck per RV space. If you have more than one car or truck, they will have to be parked in the designated overflow lot for a fee. Upon departure, RV spaces must be free of trash or be subjected to a cleanup fee.

Is there a dump station for my RV?
No, there is no dump station available. We suggest that you arrive with empty holding tanks and full water. In addition, a vendor will be on the grounds between 9 am and 5 pm to provide holding tank servicing, as well as bulk water delivery for a fee.

MOVE TO COTA FAQ’S

Why is the Rally moving to the Circuit of The Americas (COTA)?
Last month the powers that be in Travis County informed the Republic Of Texas Motorcycle Rally that we would not be able to hold the event at the Travis County Expo Center as the county would be using the facility as a Covid-19 Vaccine distribution center. Over the subsequent weeks, rally staff members worked diligently to secure the new location. The Circuit of The Americas facilities fit our needs and they have agreed to work with us to produce the same exciting event many of you have been coming to for years.

Where is COTA located?
Just south of the Travis County Expo Center, The Circuit of The Americas is located at 9201 Circuit of The Americas Blvd, Austin, TX 78617. Please visit the directions information page here.

Does the postponement of the event in 2020 and subsequent move to COTA have any affect on the RV Space/Tickets I purchased for the 2020 event?
This has no affect on the RV Space or tickets you purchased for the 2020 event. All RV’s/Tickets purchased for the event in 2020 have been credited to your account for the 2021 event at The Circuit Of The Americas. Please log in to your account Dashboard on our website and view the “Orders” tab on your dashboard to find your credentials for the 25th Anniversary event being held June 10-13, 2021 at the Circuit of The Americas. All parade route RV spots will remain on the parade route!

How does the move to Circuit of the Americas affect me if I have already purchased and RV Space for the event?
Rally site planners have been working on making the move to COTA as seamless a transition as possible. That said, if you purchased an RV space on the internal parade route, your new space at COTA will also be on the parade route. If you purchased multiple RV Spaces that were bunched together at the Travis County Expo Center, site planners have done their best to make sure this stays consistent for your spaces at COTA. Your lot Color and Space number will remain the same. You can find your spaces for the COTA location by visiting the Find My New RV Space page on our website. Here we feature a large map with color coded RV lots included. Just click on the colored RV lot you purchased for and the RV lot will show you the numbered spaces for that lot. Look up your space number on the map.

Does the move to COTA have any effect on the Nightly parade on the internal parade route?
The route itself will be different but the “Loop” will still run through the Lime Lot, Blue Lot, Purple Lot, Green Lot, and parts of the Yellow lot. If you have purchased an RV space on the parade route in any of these lots, you will still have a front row seat to the nightly parade.

How will this affect RV Check-In for the event?
RV check in at COTA will be much the same as it was at the Travis County Expo Center. Check in for RV’s will take place on Wednesday June 9th, 2021 at The Circuit of The Americas at 9201 Circuit of The Americas Blvd, Austin, TX 78617. Bring your printed tickets with you to RV Registration and we will get you checked in.

What if I am having an RV delivered to the event?
If you have purchased an RV Space for the event and are having your RV Rental delivered, you will need to make arrangements to have your RV delivered to 9201 Circuit of The Americas Blvd, Austin, TX 78617 on Wednesday, June9th, 2021. Same process just a different delivery address.

Will the move to COTA change whether or not I have a powered RV Space?
If you purchased an RV Space with power for the Expo, your RV space at COTA will have the same power provided.

If I don’t want to attend the event because of the move to COTA can I get a refund?
As stated in our terms and conditions on both our website and on your printed ticket, The event is an all-weather event; no refunds, exchanges, or other form of credit or consideration will be made if weather, other “acts of God,” or any governmental action causes cancellation, closure, or relocation of the Event or any part thereof.

If the Event is moved or rescheduled, original tickets will be honored at the rescheduled time and location. In that circumstance, the Event Provider may in its sole discretion set criteria, allowances, and limitations for refunds. See Our Full List Of Terms and Conditions.

How much does it cost to enter the ride-in bike show?

When is the bike show judging and when will the winners be announced?

Texas MC Laws

What Texas motorcycle laws should I be aware of?

  • A DOT approved helmet is required for all motorcyclists. An exception to this stipulation allows anyone at least 21 years old not to wear a helmet if they have successfully completed a motorcycle operator training and safety course or they are covered by a health insurance plan providing at least $10,000 in medical benefits. You must carry proof of either if you decide to go lidless.
  • A Class M motorcycle endorsement must be a part of your driver’s license.
  • Vehicle insurance and an inspection sticker are also required. It’s never a bad idea to carry a copy of your registration.
  • A horn and one mirror are mandatory. At least one headlight must be illuminated at all times during operation unless the bike was manufactured prior to 1975. The bike must have both an operating taillight and brake light.
  • Both side-mounted or vertical side-mounted license plate tags are acceptable.
  • Burnouts, wheelies and other “stunts” will not be tolerated on any Austin city street. There is a time and place for that behavior and downtown is not it. The Austin PD is biker friendly (especially during The Republic Of Texas Motorcycle Rally), but if you insist on acting like a jerk, they will respect your wishes and treat you like one.

Motorcycle Poker Run

What happened to the poker run?

Beginning in 2006, the State of Texas Attorney General decreed that poker runs were illegal gambling and banned them in the State of Texas. The Rally Committee has continually attempted to get his decision reversed, but as of this writing, we have not been successful.
