One that was not mentioned is HAMCOW

It is a converted construction trailer, set up 
with at least 5 operating stations on HF to UHF, 
various antennas on push-up poles (think TV news 
van), basic accommodations for operators, WiFi, 
multiple power options, and much more.

Based in Southeast Mass, but we saw it last year 
at a large hamfest in New Hampshire.

Full description and pix on their site.
