Tiffin Allegro Club supports Red Bay Lions Club

The Tiffin Allegro Club is honored to actively support the Red Bay Lions Club and Lions Club International by collecting used eyeglasses.  We have collection boxes at every Tiffin rally across the nation as well as locally inside our Red Bay office.   Usable glasses give new life!  Refractive errors (far and nearsightedness) can be easily corrected with eyeglasses, yet millions living in low and middle income countries lack access to basic eye care services.  The lack of eyeglasses denies children and adults opportunities for education, employment and a better quality of life.  Lions have recognized the urgent need for corrective lenses and collect usable glasses to support the Lions Recycle For Sight Program.

Since Helen Keller (a native of nearby Tuscumbia, AL) challenged Lions to become “Knights of the Blind” in 1925, they have improved eye health and eye care for hundreds of millions of people around the world. Today, 80% of vision impairments are preventable or curable, so their service is more important than ever before. Lions screen vision, educate our communities, build clinics and support the blind and visually impaired through assistive technology and vocational training programs. They work to preserve the precious gift of sight for the world.

We are proud to say that Tiffin Motorhome owners are making large donations of usable glasses to our local club.  After collecting the glasses and placing them in the hands of our local Lions Club, they are shipped to an official Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center for processing.  There, the glasses are sorted to determine those that are usable or unusable, processed, and placed in inventory for distribution to optical missions around the world.  Lions help to minimize landfill waste by supporting precious metal reclamation and scrap processing for damaged glasses that are unusable.   Broken glasses that are discarded provide “scrap to cash” income aiding local community projects.

Your Efforts Count! Donate your used glasses, including sunglasses and reading glasses, at the Tiffin Allegro Club collection box in Red Bay and also at every Tiffin Rally!     

2018 Spring Rally – Tucson, AZ

Join us in the beautiful desert region of southern Arizona on February 19-22nd, 2018 for our spring Tiffin Allegro Club rally!   This is a great area to visit and explore.  The famous western town of Tombstone is nearby; Saguaro National Park; the Biosphere just to name a few sites.   We will host 300 coaches at the Pima County Fairgrounds and we will have a display of beautiful new Tiffin Motorhomes available to tempt you!


The fairground’s campground has 30 AMP electrical service, water, wi-fi and sewer hookups.   Where better to be than in southern Arizona in February!!   Our rally begins on Monday, February 19th and coaches will depart on Friday, February 23rd.  If you wish to arrive at the fairgrounds the weekend prior to the rally, we will send out a form closer to rally date for Saturday and/or Sunday arrivals to those who have registered for the rally.  The rally buildings will be closed and there will be no rally activities before the rally begins.

Your rally fee will include multiple catered meals, ice cream socials, live entertainment, four nights’ camping, seminars, shopping with RV suppliers and local vendors, and other fun activities.  Your rally fee also includes our terrific Tiffin Technicians performing up to three minor repairs on your coaches.  You have made a sizeable investment in purchasing a beautiful motor coach.  Take this valuable opportunity at our rallies to learn all you can by attending our seminars and talking with representatives from Tiffin suppliers such as Freightliner, Onan, Triple H Electronics and others.

The cost for one coach and two adults is only $479.  (Coach with one adult is $379)  Additional guests staying in the coach with you will be $150 per person.  We will begin accepting reservations on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at 11:00 am Central Time.  Our rallies sell out quickly – the Salem Rally sold out in 5 minutes!  Don’t delay if you are interested in attending!   The only way to register for this rally will be online at  (The Registration Form will not be available until registration opens and it will be removed when the rally is full.)  Click on the Owner’s tab, select Tiffin Allegro Club, and click on Rallies.  Open the Registration Form by clicking on the space as instructed.

This outside vendor accumulates all registration forms and provides them to the Club in the order in which they are received.  This eliminates the problems with overloading our email server, jamming the fax machine, etc.  No registrations will be accepted by mail, in person or by telephone.  Anyone not having access to the internet can ask a friend or family member to register for them.   This rally will sell out quickly so don’t delay in getting your registration completed online.  Call our office at 256-356-8522 ahead of time if you have any questions.   WE DO NOT RECOMMEND TRYING TO REGISTER FOR THE RALLY ON A SMART PHONE OR MINI-TABLET!  Too much information in too small a space!

We hope your 2018 travel plans include spending time with us at a Tiffin Allegro Club rally!  The comradery with other owners and local chapters is invaluable.  Tiffin representatives from Red Bay will be on hand.  Make your plans now!
