Sounds like the club needs to get James Triana under contract asap.

I read this with much concern. I have been the owner of my foretravel for a year now and I remember at the time how fortunate I felt, not only because there was quality built into my unit but because I was now part of the foretravel family. My...

I am sitting here looking at my renewal check going in the mail today.  Maybe I should just tear it up, >:(

First off, I agree with the comments that windwalker made. After reading the letter a couple of times, I don't see where the nuts and bolts of the motorcade club are any different from how it's been in the past. Just my thought.

Dropped it last year. Didn't see the need for it.
This forum does more for me personally.
But still a strong FT supporter

The 10% discount on parts at FT has paid for my subscription twice over just in the past 2 months.

There is a lot that can be read into Read's letter.. Years ago, I saw a similar move made by Airstream Inc. eventually severing all club support relations with the membership. The result overtime saw the creation of an independent Airstream Club...

There has to be a business reason such as insurance or something else driving this since it looks like FOT is going to stay involved, just not the owner of the club.

Having been a Motorcade member in the past, we were so proud belong!  Just the calls that we made to James T. were worth any amount they could have charged back then.  We also formed many friends at the gatherings, but alas, never made a...

Just became a member 2 months ago. I guess wait and see. I feel like I've lost something I've never had yet. No magazine yet but anxiously waiting to get my first one.

Wanting to get to get first hand info I called Bev Koonce  at FT - here is what I learned.

Thanks for the briefing Tim.  I guess I'll hang in for another year and see how it goes.

Proud to support the Motorcade Club, James T. has saved my bacon a few times too....

Paid our membership dues for next year and spoke to Bev direcfly.  Switched Chapters, due to our impending move to Tampa in the next two weeks. Looking forward...

When we purchase our next Foretravel, we will again become Motorcade members!  James T's help is priceless!

James is the best.  All my years selling rvs, never seen support like this.  I will continue to be a Motorcade member as long as I have a FT and it is available.

Oh well, this might change things a bit.  I have been debating remaining a member after 17 years and being pretty active in the club.  We sold our Foretravel and now have a Born Free.  I wold think that the club could let all brands join now.

I would think that the club could let SOBs join now.

We still have our Foretravel Motorcade jackets and they still fit!  I would vote to keep the Motorcade membership strictly for those owning a Foretravel.

I would vote for whatever it takes membership wise to keep the club viable. With the dwindling numbers of coaches being built, accepting SOB may become an economic necessity, perhaps a dues increase or both.
