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!
When the Travel Supreme company went under in 2008, the motorized assets were purchased by Jayco and the production moved to Middlebury, IN. Since then they have been cranking out high end motor homes under the name Entegra. In fact, three of us are now driving Entegras.
Dave Phillips set up a tour of the factory, directed by an old friend Todd Hahn. We met in the lobby, got our safety vests, hats and radios and started at the chassis area. There we were able to take a close look at the backbone of these fine coaches. Then we went inside and got a detailed view how the motor home itself, from the floor up, was built.
This was most educational for all of us. We got to appreciate the work and quality that goes into these fine motor homes. After the tour, we went to the Rise’n Shine bakery, had a nice lunch and sampled the goodies, including the famous “Amish Crack”, cinnamon/caramel donuts that were oh so good. After that, we went our separate ways, including a visit to the Shipshewana Flea Market for some of us.
