If you own a motorhome manufactured by Tiffin Motorhomes, consider joining the Tiffin Travelers.
By Frances Fonner, F372164, Chapter President
The Tiffin Travelers chapter was formed in 2009. Although most of our members hail from east of the Mississippi River, we do have members from throughout North America. We are not directly affiliated with the Allegro Club or the Tiffin RV Network, even though many of us are also members of those clubs.
Tiffin owners are welcome to attend our rallies and gatherings even if they aren't members of our chapter . . . yet.
We call chapter get-togethers at events such as FMCA area rallies or Family Reunions “gatherings.” It is common for us to meet at these events. But because they usually offer several different parking options (handicapped, volunteer, electric, generator, etc.), parking next to each other can be tricky. However, we do convene for fun, no matter how our coaches might be spread about the grounds.
Our next gathering will be in March 2016 at FMCA’s upcoming Family Reunion & Motorhome Showcase in Perry, Georgia. We will have a member meeting and socials, but we’ll also give you a chance to join us at our social for all Tiffin owners. The location and time will be announced in the Perry event program or in the daily newsletter that is distributed during the Family Reunion.
Our chapter rallies are organized for our members, prospective members, and guests. Join our events when you can. (We hope it is often, but attendance is not a requirement of membership.) So far, we have rallies scheduled for 2016 in Brunswick, Georgia, in April, and in Ashland, Virginia (near Richmond), in June. Our rallies often have planned outings, dinners, and other activities.
Our website, www.tiffintravelers.info, includes interesting pages titled “Newsletters,” "Rallies and Gatherings,” "Rally Archives and Rally Guide,” and "Meeting Minutes."
The newsletter part of our website is new as of August 2015. It features the latest newsletter online as well as those published in the past 12 months. We email a notice to members that the newest newsletter is available for reading, instead of mass emailing the newsletter itself. No more worries that members didn't receive the news, because it is available online.
Our website also has a membership application link. First-year dues are $22. Subsequent renewals are $12. Tiffin owners who would like to be "Roughing It Smoothly" along with us are encouraged to visit with us soon at a gathering or rally. Ya'll come!
