What Is the Gutted Event?

Gutted is an event that brings together like-minded creators, influencers, and businesses in the travel industry. This is for RV, van, and skoolie builds, live entertainment, and just plain fun.

Last year’s Gutted event featured artists and comedians. It also featured content creators such as Chris Penn, Sue Perkins, The Endless Adventure, and many more.

Featured in Alamosa, Colo., three teams competed against each other to complete skoolie, RV, and van builds in just five days. You can watch the entire competition for free on Blankspace.

About the Gutted Event

Good news! Gutted is happening again from October 4 to 9, 2022, in Smithville, Mo. You can actually compete, work on your own rig, or just hang out.

There will be workshops such as “Adding a Shower to your Vehicle” and “How to Work Remotely on the Road,” and activities like Morning Yoga and even a Lip Sync Battle. 

What to Expect

This area has many lakefront campsites, hiking trails, and even some sites with electrical hookups. The roads going into the camp are paved and, therefore, can handle a variety of rigs. There will also be indoor bathrooms and showers, a dump station, and a water fillup. 

If you’re interested in working on your rig while you’re at Gutted, there will be plenty of experts and vendors to supply materials. What’s more? You’ll be in good proximity to all the activities and services in the area.
