Indianpolis, Indiana, FMCA's 87th Family Reunion & Motorhome Showcase
Julie Lauderdale, President, announced today that “members at the summer business meeting approved a motion to change the name of the CAT RV Club, an FMCA Chapter to the ‘Diesel RV Club’.”
The Chapter’s mission statement has been modified so that it will be a club for RV owners with an interest in diesel engines, how to maintain them, how to get maximum performance, and how to keep repair costs to a minimum. The Chapter’s Rallies combine social and technical programs.
There has never been a requirement that one own a Caterpillar powered RV, in fact, the Chapter’s first VP had a Detroit Diesel, but changing the name conveys that RV owners of any diesel coach are eligible for membership. 90% of the “Care and Feeding” of a diesel coach is not inside the engine, but maintenance of the fuel, cooling, air and other chassis systems. These systems are shared by owners of “all color” engines.
An invitation is being extended to all Diesel RV Club members to participate in a competition to design the new logo for the Chapter. Designs should be submitted to Lee Zaborowski, email@example.com Additional information can be found at www.dieselrvclub.org or by contacting Ken Carpenter (214) 364-2090.
