You Could Help Save a Life with an Emergency Information Sheet for your Tiffin Motorhome

Red and White Emergency SignTiffin Motorhomes Allegro Club has a plethora of talented individuals with a great deal of knowledge to share, This article comes to us from Dr. Louis Finkle who studied at Vanderbilt University.

He shares with us a few tips on providing pertinent information to EMT’s in case of an emergency if you’re traveling away from your motorhome campsite.

Dr. Finkle tells us “If you are like most of us, you will leave your RV in a campground or boondocking site and go “somewhere” in your toad. Each time you unhook the toad, always carry a pad on the dash with you indicating the date you unhooked and where your RV is parked!

If something happens, or you forget, and you have an accident in your toad – how would anyone know that your “home” is parked nearby when your tag shows MS?

Make sure the first page has emergency contact info and entries by date as to where you are “parked”. The last entry should be where you last unhooked. If your “home address” is a Mail Forwarding PO Box, then state you are a “Fulltimer!

These precautions will help EMTs and Police know what to do. It will save time, energy and maybe your life!”

We hope you will apply this sound advice from Dr. Finkle to your own travels. One never knows when an emergency can occur.

Hudson Valley Allegros Enjoy Hartwick Highlands in New York

Hudson Valley Allegros, Chapter #199

June Rally – Cooperstown, NY

By Club Reporter – Susan Metcalfe

Thirteen Tiffin coaches from the Hudson Valley Allegros attended the June Rally. We travelled to Hartwick Highlands Campground in Cooperstown, New York. We opened our week with the Meet & Greet with open grill and delicious salads and desserts made by our hosts, The Bishops, Costellos, and Tanseys. While enjoying the lovely campground we also visited the highlights of Cooperstown; Baseball Hall of Fame (which celebrated their 75th Anniversary, June 12th while we were there), The Farmers Museum, Fennemore Museum, a boat ride on Glimmer Glass Lake (Otsego Lake), Turning Stone, winery’s along the Wine Trail and the Ommegang Brewery.

We enjoyed a dinner out at the Red Neck Bar-B-Que and the Pepper Mill Restaurant. Despite the weather we all enjoyed friends, fellowship, and plenty of food and fun. Tuesday morning our hosts provided a delicious breakfast after which we held our monthly meeting. Our hosts worked very hard and put together a delicious meal on Wednesday of fried and smoked (trash can) turkey complete with all the fixings. We finished off the meal with hot fudge sundaes. On Thursday we finished off the week with the famous “Pot Luck Dinner”.

Hartwick Highlands campground is located in the beautiful leatherstocking country of New York. The pull thru gravel sites have generous surrounding grass areas. There are also numerous cabins to accommodate those families that do not have RV’s so they may attend the “Cooperstown Dreams Park”. This park is a baseball facility open to players 12 and under from all over the world. Each team spends a week learning the fundamentals of baseball and playing other teams. One can spot a dozen different license plates from around the country while on a walk about the park. hvae

Arrival at Toutle River RV Resort

Tiffin Allegro Club and the Toutle River RV Resort welcomed over 200 Tiffin built motorhomes to the Mount St. Helen’s area for the Tiffin Allegro Club Rally in June.  Many coach owners took advantage of the opportunity to arrive early and almost half of all rally attendees were parked and relaxing by the weekend prior to the rally’s kick-off on Monday!  Poulsbo RV, a Tiffin dealer from the Seattle/Tacoma area was present with a huge display of beautiful, new Tiffin coaches.

The weather was cool and crisp with a few light rain showers at the beginning of the week, but not enough to dampen everyone’s spirits.  A great big shout-out of thanks goes to the fantastic team of Tiffin volunteers who drove golf cart shuttles, helped with registration, greeted guests at the meals, etc!  We could not host a rally without the help of these generous folks!  As always, RV owners are the kindest, most “willing to lend a hand” people traveling on the highways today.

We had 16 US states and 2 Canadian provinces represented at the rally.  After being escorted to their RV sites, guests were registered and presented with a gift bag of items from Tiffin Allegro Club and Poulsbo RV.   Everyone was eager to visit Poulsbo RV’s display to see the newest and latest coaches.

Kelly Moore, Tiffin Allegro Club President, welcomed everyone at dinner Monday night. Meals were catered by the Summerland Catering Co. and each was delicious with a great variety.  Everyone was very excited for the opportunity to meet Mr. & Mrs. Bob Tiffin at the rally.  After dinner, Tom Webber entertained the group with Bingo!  Winners had to shout “Allegro” to win!  Door prize drawings and announcements closed out the night

A Very Busy Day Two

Tuesday morning found everyone lining up for a bountiful breakfast.  That cool, crisp Washington air really sharpened everyone’s appetite!  Seminars began immediately after breakfast.  Owners really appreciated the informative seminars presented by folks from Triple H Electronics, Freightliner, Cummins, Onan and others. Janet Sadlack from MicrowaveConnect presented her popular Convection/Microwave Cooking to a packed audience!  Mary Moppins’ cleaning tips are always good to hear.  Lawn games were available for anyone who wanted to participate.

One of Tuesday’s fun activities was the RV site decorating contest.  Many folks took time to decorate their site with the Country Western theme – judging was difficult!  Folks put a lot of thought and hard work into this.  Great participation and it was enjoyed by everyone. The winners were:  Michael & Roxanne Parish, 1st place; Wayne & Diane Heath, 2nd place; David & Shirley Kellog-Don & Nancy Printz for 3rd place.  Thanks for all your creative efforts!!  They were presented with gift certificates from the Tiffin Allegro Club store. Dinner on Tuesday was a delicious bar-b-que and fried chicken buffet.

Closing out the night was Joseph Baldwin, talented singer/songwriter/musician.  One of the favorite songs was Johnny Cash’s “I Hear That Train A Coming” in honor of the frequent trains running along beside of the campground!  Joseph did an outstanding job singing old country favorites as well as his original material.  We were honored to recognize Mr. & Mrs.  Larry Hebert on their 52nd anniversary.   When Joseph asked Mr. Hebert what song he would like for their dance, Mr. Hebert replied “A slow one!”

Warmer Weather Wednesday

On Wednesday the weather cleared and temperatures were more pleasant!  More seminars were held with a new favorite being added.  Owners were invited to participate in a round table type discussion of tips for coach organization, customization, and interesting things they have learned while traveling about the country in their motorhome.  This forum was facilitated by Kelly Moore and we received many positive comments about this.

When time permits we will try to include this type of gathering in future rallies.  The aroma of grilling burgers and wieners filled the air as lunch was being prepared for everyone compliments of Poulsbo RV.   No need to ring a dinner bell!  The smoke and delicious aroma drew everyone into the Pavilion right on time.

A Tiffin tradition is the Afternoon Tea Party!  This fun time was enjoyed by everyone.  Tea trivia games were played, stories about favorite tea cups were shared and unique hats were admired.

After sharing a beautiful day together, the entire group gathered for another delicious dinner of Tex-Mex dishes followed by more door prizes and entertainment by Bobby Greer.

Thursday Night Wrap Up

A full country breakfast buffet kicked off our Thursday schedule.  More seminars were held in the Pavilion and with a last minute cancellation by one of the presenters we decided to offer the time for a swap meet among the owners.  Several folks participated and were pleased with their sales and/or their purchases!  With more advance notice for everyone, this could be a great opportunity to meet people and let unwanted items change hands!

We were very pleased to have several Tiffin Allegro Club chapters represented at the rally. Chapters took this opportunity to have their monthly meeting and many gathered every afternoon before dinner to visit and catch-up on the ‘news’.  New chapter members were recruited and several added during the rally.

A real highlight of the rally was the veteran’s salute parade.  Participation was great!  We had a good time decorating automobiles and golf carts with red, white and blue bunting and streamers.  There were banners saluting our veterans and paying tribute to those who have passed on.  Spectators stood along the way with American flags waving to the veterans.  The parade ended at Poulsbo RV display and everyone was treated to ice cream by Mary Moppins!  

Our farewell dinner on Thursday night featured northwestern salmon and glazed pork loin.  All of the meals were bountiful and featured a variety of delicious foods.  Immediately following dinner door prizes were awarded and then Onan caps and Kenwood t-shirts were pitched into the hands of some lucky individuals.   We were very pleased to recognize and pay tribute to our dedicated service technicians who had worked tirelessly all week.  These men received a well-deserved standing ovation from the crowd.

A fantastic number of rally attendees took advantage of Poulsbo RV’s show discounts and became owners of brand new coaches!  These folks were recognized each night and presented with a gift basket from the Tiffin Allegro Club.  After dinner, musical sensation Brady Goss entertained the group with his rendition of Jerry Lee Lewis’ “Great Balls of Fire!”  This young man lit up the keyboards and certainly put on a great show for the crowd!

Friday’s Farewell and Today’s Reminders

Friday saw many of our guests heading for home or on to their next adventure along the highway.  A few folks wanted to continue enjoying the beautiful Toutle River RV Resort through the weekend.

The Tiffin Allegro Club staff wants to again thank everyone for attending the rally and remind you to watch for our 2015 rallies.  We are already hard at work scouting locations for 2015.

When details have been finalized, dates and locations will be announced here, on Facebook and Twitter.  Be sure you have registered your email address in the SUBSCRIBE box so you will be notified immediately!  The majority of our rallies sell-out quickly so don’t delay when you see a rally that you want to attend.  Until then, Keep Roughing It Smoothly! Travel safe!
