Tiffin Allegro Club – Fall 2017 Rally – Salem, OR




By:  Sally Moore

Early Fall 2017 saw a steady stream of beautiful Tiffin coaches making their way to the Oregon State Fairgrounds in Salem, Oregon for our last rally of 2017.  The fall foliage was just beginning to peak and with snow on the mountaintops, it was a beautiful time of year.  We hosted 300 coaches from across the USA and Canada for a week of fun, fellowship and comradery.  The weather was as close to perfect as one could expect!  Crisp, cool mornings and sunny afternoons were delightful.  B. Young RV brought several Tiffin coaches to show our owners and made many folks very happy by helping them move into the coach of their dreams.  Thank you B. Young and all of your great staff for being a part of our rally.

Our volunteers came early to help the Tiffin staff get everything ready for the rally.  WE LOVE OUR VOLUNTEERS!  They pay to come to the rally and then work hard all week to be sure everyone has a good time just as they do!  Our volunteers are fantastic!

As soon as coaches arrived, guests made their way to the Tiffin Store to stock up on the newest Tiffin swag and receive their agendas and welcome bag of gifts.  Everyone gathered in the Jackman Long Building on Monday evening for a delicious meal followed by welcoming remarks by Bob Tiffin and Kelly Moore.   We appreciate the support of Bob Tiffin, Tim Tiffin and the management from Tiffin Motorhomes for our rallies!   Door prizes were awarded and everyone enjoyed a few games of Tiffin Allegro Bingo.  We couldn’t have bingo night without our official “Bingo Experts”, Tom & Pat Webber!  Prizes were awarded with much fun and laughter.  All veterans were recognized and celebrated during the evening.  We salute our veterans and thank you for your service to our nation!

Tuesday morning saw several of our energetic souls out for an early morning power walk around the fairgrounds to get the blood flowing before our big country breakfast.    Immediately after breakfast, seminars on RV related topics were held.  Great topics that interested all RV owners were covered, such as Convection Microwave Cooking, updating and understanding your navigation system, and deciphering the coach electrical system.   Onan generators and Freightliner chassis always have great participation at their seminars.  Owners participated in a craft & hobby show Tuesday afternoon as well as a jack-o-lantern decorating contest.  It’s always interesting to see the crafts that RVers make while touring the country in their Tiffin coach.

Ice cream was enjoyed by everyone in the new coach display.   This was a great opportunity to visit with one another and share travel experiences.  Tuesday night we welcomed old friends of Bob and Judy Tiffin, Charles Suniga and the Angels.  Charles was successful in bringing Bob to the stage for an Elvis impersonation complete with the famous sunglasses.  Tim Tiffin, General Manager of Tiffin Motorhomes addressed the group Tuesday night.  This was the first rally to be attended by Tim and Lynn Tiffin and we were delighted they came across country to be with us.

Wednesday morning saw our dedicated walkers out and about very early enjoying the beautiful sunrise again.  Interesting seminars were held in the Jackman Long Building and Cascade Hall.  Everyone gathered at noon for a Tailgate Buffet of delicious grilled burgers and hot dogs with all the trimmings.

Owners were invited to participate in our “Fall Harvest” site decoration contest.  Lots of originality and thought went into this.  We were treated to everything from a real, live scarecrow to crops grown in southern Alabama and a corn maze for old people!   Tiffin Allegro gift certificates were awarded to the winners.  Thanks to everyone who participated!

The Young Bucs treated us to a wonderful concert after dinner on Wednesday evening.  This multi-talented group is from the Oregon coast area and performed many of the hits from the 50’s & 60’s.

On Thursday morning, everyone gathered in the Jackman Long Building for another delicious buffet breakfast followed by a morning of educational seminars.

Ice cream was enjoyed again Thursday afternoon while touring the beautiful Tiffin coaches one last time.  B. Young was able to make several people’s dream come true!  Folks gathered after lunch for a “Swap Meet”.  Owners were invited to bring any of their unwanted junk–I mean treasures!  Others made their best deal to take the junk/treasures home with them!!

Thursday evening brought an end to our festivities.  After another delicious meal, more fantastic Tiffin door prizes and Red Bay stories by Kelly Moore, everyone enjoyed entertainment by Danny Vernon, Elvis tribute artist.  Danny presented a fantastic show complete with scarves presented to many lucky ladies!

A special round of heartfelt thanks goes out to the hard working service technicians from Tiffin’s & B.Young RV.  They are our unsung heroes and do a remarkable job of visiting each coach during the rally to perform minor repairs/adjustments to the coach.  Hats off to them!!

Friday morning Tiffin friends hooked up the tow and headed on to their next destination.  Whatever your plans, travel safely and we hope to see you at a Tiffin rally somewhere in the near future!  The schedule for our upcoming rallies in 2018 has been announced and you can see it at  These rallies will sell-out so make note of the on-sale date & time so you don’t get left out.  Happy trails!



While In Red Bay, Visit the Red Bay Museum


While visiting Red Bay during your Tiffin travels, we encourage you to take an afternoon and tour the Red Bay Museum located at 110 Fourth St SE, Red Bay.  The museum is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:30 PM – 4:00 PM with a $5.00 admission charge.  The museum is a labor of love of the Red Bay Civitan Club.

The museum houses displays that are re-creations of landmarks from Red Bay’s past.  When you enter the museum, you are greeted with a replica of the hotel lobby with the actual furnishings of the old Hotel Red Bay.  From there you will discover the soda fountain from the drug store, the Bay Theater, the original bank teller windows from Red Bay’s first bank, the Medical Clinic, re-creation of church interiors, and many items from the Red Bay Depot.  In additional to these are displays depicting what home life was like from the living areas to the working areas, including the kitchens of old homes.

Although two school buildings have burned in Red Bay, there are still many items from the schools showing the education aspect of Red Bay and surrounding rural schools.  Included in the service aspects of Red Bay businesses is a jewelry and watch repair display, beautician items, restaurants and café, appliance stores, television and radio repair items as well as service station and automobile displays.  The tour ends with the largest exhibit at this time on country music icon Tammy Wynette, born, raised and schooled just across the state line in Mississippi.  Tammy called Red Bay her hometown because it was the closest town she lived to where she would go to shop, to the doctor, visit relatives, go to the movies,…  Tammy also did five benefit concerts for Red Bay through the years, as well as serving as Grand Marshall for the Red Bay Christmas parade.  Items have been loaned or donated by friends, fans and family members of Tammy’s.

A mission statement for the museum would include “preserving a way of life that is no longer here, so that young people can be made aware of what life was like many years ago here in Red Bay and to remind those older of the life they lived”.  Red Bay is so fortunate that people through the years saw the importance of keeping these artifacts that now occupy the museum and have been so instrumental in educating thousands of people of what life in Red Bay, AL was like.  During the recent Smithsonian exhibit held in Red Bay, which over 6000 people attended, the museum was the highlight of all the venues associated with the exhibit.

Many of the visitors to the museum are owners of Tiffin Motorhome coaches who stay at the campground while having their motorhomes repaired.  These visitors, from every state in the union as well as some from other countries, have marveled at the quality and content of such a museum in such a small rural town as ours.  Many saying it is the best small town museum they have ever visited in their travels.   The museum continues to grow with new items constantly and displays are changed to keep the tour fresh and different for those returning.
