⚠️ Warning: This convergence may not be for everyone!⚠️

This venue is located in a suburban area.  There will be traffic noise and the standard hustle and bustle that comes with parking near a large city.  We will be parked in a standard parking lot with no amenities.  There will be no direct access to water or electricity.  Generator use may be heavy for attendees that do not have solar capabilities.  We will limit generator use to daytime hours but you should be prepared for generator noise throughout the day. This convergence may not be suited for the faint of heart, the noise sensitive, or the early to bed. 

 Remember, this ain’t your grandma’s RV rally.  YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

FAQs

We will be parked in a parking lot.  There will be no restrooms or showers available.

We welcome your furry friends!  If they are outside your rig, they must be leashed at all times. Please pick up after your pets. Please note that many of the planned events will take us offsite for 3 or more hours.   

We will not actively exclude kids from attending this event, however, some activities may not be considered kid friendly.  The night of the second line parade will be concluded at a local bar/ club and those under the age of 21 will not be permitted to enter.    

We will have dumpsters on site.  Please break down all trash to make it as small as possible, especially boxes!

There will be no early arrival or late departure available for this event.  

100% Dry camping only.  We will be parking in an asphalt parking lot.  This will be rally style parking which means you can expect to be close to your neighbors.

All sites will be first come, first served.  If you would like to park next to someone specific, you should arrive at the same time, and we will do our best to park you near each other.

There is no water or dump station available at this location. It is IMPERATIVE that you arrive with your black tanks empty and your water tank full.

Cell phone signal is strong for all major carriers.

There will be no mailing address available for this event.  There is an Amazon Locker hub located at 2301 Clearview Pkwy in Metairie.

The main reasons for you to attend a convergence should be to have fun and meet other like-minded RVers.  Networking and making potential business leads is a natural result of being part of an awesome community.  We don’t want the Xscapers community to be bombarded or feel like they are a commodity. If the main reason you are wanting to attend an Xscapers event is to sell something, market to attendees, or simply to generate content we would ask that you contact us directly for corporate sponsorship.

New Orleans is an expensive city. If you have ever traveled to the Big Easy on your own, you likely know that finding a camping/ RV site near downtown could cost anywhere from $450 to upwards of $800 for a week. Our cost of $500 per couple ($350 for solos) includes, not only a place to park for six nights, but also a weeks worth of awesome events.  And don’t even get us started on the cost of parking downtown.  If you are unable to find street parking, the pay-by-the-hour lots near the French Quarter can charge anywhere from $7 – $20 an hour. So, it’s a good thing your ticket will also include transportation to and from every off-site event. You really can’t beat his deal!

Is an Xscapers Convergence Right for Me?

Xscapers was formed to bring Escapees RV Club back to its original roots of supporting RVers who are working from the road. At Convergences, you will find a community of active and free-spirited individuals with a passion for travel and adventure.

About 80% of Xscapers have full-time jobs they do remotely or seasonally.  This means we typically don’t hold activities during standard work hours (with the exception of Annual Bash). Starting later in the day also means later nights. We have found that this can be a factor in deciding what event program people attend.

We try to give the most fun and entertainment value at an affordable price.  One way we do that is by boondocking as much as possible. Our events are also a great way for newbie boondockers to learn from experienced ones. We try to divide our camping areas into those who have solar and those who want to run generators when possible.

Xscapers is an inclusive community, connected through the bond of RVing. This means we welcome people from all walks of life, no matter race, sexual orientation, political/religious views, lifestyle or RV type. Discrimination of any type will not be tolerated.
