Finding a used Travel Supreme

We all know the quality that Travel Supreme put into their trailers and motor homes. There even is a while Facebook Group devoted to current TS owners. So it is no surprise that we get periodic request for people trying to find a used TS. So when I saw a nice looking 2005 Select with a for sale sign in the Spokane area I thought I would post it here.

Contact the owner for any further info, we make no claim to the condition this coach is in. We do know it is a 2005 TS Select, 500hp Cummins, had the factory X bracing, and has about 65,000 miles. Other than that contact the owner Ken, number in the pictures.

Business meeting

From Linda Brian

TS Members, I’m getting more excited about the North Louisiana “Southern Pride” Business Meeting to be held at Lincoln Park, Ruston, Louisiana for September 23rd to 27th. But before you come to North Louisiana, don’t forget we have two other gatherings, Buena Vista for July 21-26 and Chama on August 18-25th. Check the web page for details.

Now for info about the NL “Southern Pride” Business Meeting, don’t shy away because you think it is just a business meeting, you’ll be disappointed. I want to encourage you to go ahead and call for your reservations early (318-251-5156). You will not be given a site number but when you arrive you pick out the site you want and park. Most all sites are easily accessible to the club house.

This is a rally that is hosted by your executive committee. You will be served a welcome meal, two breakfasts and desserts on two other evenings. We will eat as a group at an all-you-can-eat seafood buffet with a senior discount and we’ll meet at an Italian Restaurant for a group meal which is across the street from Miss Kays’s (of Duck Dynasty) bakery. You’ll have options of several tours in three cities, Ruston, Monroe and West Monroe. We’ll have a few guest speakers through the week and you’ll learn why so many people are proud to be from North Louisiana. You’ll learn about some of the well known people from the area including a visit to Duck Dynasty. Our decorations and meals will reflect the culture of the area and that is not South Louisiana culture or dishes, I’m talking about North Louisiana pride, country food.

So mark your calendars now with the date and call to register. Tell them you are with the Traveling Supremes. Hope to see you in September in Ruston. Linda Brian

New Orleans tag along

James and Gail Smith and Ted and Susan Kercher are heading to New Orleans after the General Meeting in Ruston, Louisiana. We leave Ruston on the 27th of September and stay somewhere in between and arrive in New Orleans on the 28th.

We are going to stay at Pontchartrain Landing, the address is 6001 France Road, New Orleans. Their phone number is 877-376-7850. It’s $61 per night (pull through full hook up site) and is paid in full at time of reservation. It is NONREFUNDABLE unless you pay a 10% trip cancellation charge. We are staying 3 nights, leaving on October 1st.

The campground is 12 minutes from the French Quarter and right on the water. They have a shuttle to town for $6 per day per person. There is a bar and grill on site with live music and BBQ and local cuisine.

This is a tag-a-long and there are lots of things to do in the area, but there will not be any planned activities arranged in advance. If you have nothing planned after the General Business, plan to join us in New Orleans!

Wagon master Report

Jim Hoover, your Wagon Master, has an update on some upcoming events.

Trader Village

As per my recent communication the tag along to Trader’s Village scheduled for June 1-2 has be canceled, or should I say postponed until a better time. This is something that I would still like to do, so with your input we will try to reschedule.

Quartzsite 2020

I recently put out information on a tag along back to Quartzsite for the RV show in 2020. We have four rigs signed up so far but I need to remind everyone that Black Rock RV park in Brenda AZ agreed to hold 8 sites until the end of May. That would be this coming Friday May 31. If you think that you might be interested call 928-927-4206 and tell them that you are with the Traveling Supremes. Just be aware that this is the slow time in Arizona RV parks so the office is only open from 8:00 – 12:00 Mon. thru Friday mountain time. To add to the confusion Arizona does not observe daylight savings time so this time of year mountain time and pacific time are the same. Anyway….try to call when the office is open.

Buena Vista, Chama, and Business Meeting

No changes at this time. I hope to see everyone in the mountains!

Trader’s Village update

Hello everyone,

I spoke with Tori Brooks at the Trader’s Village RV park and she tells me that there are only two rigs reserved for the June 1-2 weekend. If this is correct I am thinking of rescheduling this event for maybe sometime in the fall. One of the things that I failed to realize was that many people may be involved in graduation events that particular weekend. If in fact there are more rigs registered then please let me know as soon as possible and we will go ahead with the plans.

If not, I will be glad to hear suggestions on when would be a more favorable time. I plan to contact the park tomorrow 05/21/19 based on feedback from club members. Thanks!

James C. Hoover Jr.

And here we are….

So we had a good time at the Entegra Homecoming Rally. Despite the rain and temps in the 30’s…. but a good chance to meet, greet, brag, and get some important lessons in how to care for our coach.

Now the Laningas and the Cooks are heading up to Michigan to catch up with the Kerchers and the Akers. The Phillips will be on their way to their 60 day caravan to the Canadian Maritime provinces.

As webmaster, I will encourage any members to send me any information with or without pictures so I can post it on our blog. That way we can all keep up to date on our travels and who knows, meet somewhere!

And we clean up nicely too…..

Meeting in Michigan

Most of you know that when the Traveling Supreme company shut down its assets were purchased by Jayco, and went back in production under the Entegra name. The Entegra company has an annual Homecoming Rally, where Entegra owners can meet, mingle attend class and brag about their coaches. This year, the Cooks and Laninga’s will be attending. It is held in Elkhart mid May.

Sine this is so close to Dick and Nancy Akers, we decided to drop by for a visit. So we made reservations at the Riverside RV Park in Coldwater, MI. As luck would have it, the Kerchers will be in the area and also stop by. That prompted this post, if anyone else want to join in we will be at the park May 24 – 31.

As a side note, the rains and cold weather continue in the Midwest and South. The Cooks needed help getting out of their own driveway, and the Tom Sawyer RV Park is closed again due to flooding. Let’s keep all the people impacted by the weather in our thoughts.

On edit: Deanne and Dave Phillips are also attending the Entegra Homecoming Rally. And your webmaster added the wrong RV Park name in Michigan, that should be Harbor Cove RV Park in Coldwater, MI. Oops!
