Every year the full-size rock crawling community comes together and “takes over” the Cove Campground and attached off-road park featuring 60 miles of trails for a terrific off-roading good time! Located in Gore, Virginia and taking place on July 16th-18th, this event is a very grass roots family like environment for the regular attendees making this an annual tradition. It sounds like a bucket list for off-roaders in the area!
The FULLSIZE TAKEOVER has grown in size and popularity over the years adding several sponsors to the roster. All vehicles sizes and types are welcome but the event has become a real attraction for everything full-size. This event is the largest full-size off road enthusiast gathering on the east coast and the second largest in the country. From Mud trucks on 44’s with big motors to the homegrown no lift/ huge tire pickups to home brew truggies and buggies (all OEM truck based). And there are always a handful of jeeps in the mix for good measure.
The FULLSIZE TAKEOVER is the largest gathering of full-size vehicle off-road enthusiasts on the East Coast. Held Annually, the FULLSIZE TAKEOVER is a three day event of camping, trail running & rock crawling. From dedicated trail rigs to full bodied daily drivers we provide the opportunity to see what your full-size can do out on the trail. Check them out on Facebook and on Instagram @fullsize_takeover.
This is the event for all breeds of full-size vehicles from classic SUV’s to grocery getters to retired work trucks that you wouldn’t typically see on the trail. Especially old iron like classic Bronco’s, Blazers, F250’s to classic Rangers will be in attendance and since we don’t discriminate you’ll find a jeep or buggy mixed in for good measure.
