I think we will drive up on Thursday as what I can find go to gate 5 and get my passes and park the truck trailer and unload the car and from there I am lost do I drive through the fairgrounds or drive around the fairgrounds and go in gate 3
Your passes will come in the mail. No need to go to gate 3 unless you have a problem. once the sticker is on your car you can go in any gate.

Good Luck with the hotel search. I booked a room about 2 months ago and it was slim picking back then.

Check out hotel options in Gettysburg. I stay there every year and the costs are reasonable (not jacked up because of Carlisle). It's about a 45 minute drive each way for the show, but it is a beautiful trip over and back and there are some good restaurants in Gettysburg. My daughter and I also cruise the battlefield each evening we are there. Makes for some great picture opportunities. I would recommend paying for the trailer lot outside the fairgrounds and just driving your car back and forth to wherever you stay each day.

We stayed at a Motel 6, right off the exit on the Pike, in Carlisle. It was not full, and had the whole back parking lot open. Same thing for the Hotel across the street. Use the Middlesex Diner as a focal point, and work a 2-mile radius around it. Not cheap, but.short drive to the Show...

Some people will do anything to get a room near the fairground!
