Nov 23, 2019 - Quick run to Red Bay

Our quick run to Red Bay started on Wednesday morning. We were up early...at least Sue and I were. Ziva, as you can see, was still in her bed. As I got warm during the night I kicked off the additional quilt and it went off the end of the bed...right on top of Ziva. As you can see, she was hesitant to do anything that uncovered her and made her start her day early. We hustled to get everything done before we headed for Beth's house. Wednesday was her surgery to finish her replacement of the temporary spacers for the final inserts. She and...

Sep 14, 2019 - Trip to Brannan's and sit for the weekend

After I posted Wednesday night we started getting ready for bed. But, at 11:00 p.m. we had a knock at the door. The first rule of safety is do not open the door for someone you do not know - and believe me, I did not know the person knocking on my door. A man, probably early 30's was standing outside the door. I tried to ask him what he wanted but he moved back from the door and could not hear me through the door. Sue handed me a pistol that I placed in my belt and I went outside. He was inquiring about a fishing pond and wondered where it...

Sep 11, 2019 - Back to Red Bay...

It was a slow and wet start to the day on Monday. Not from rain but from the heat...it was damn hot and the sweat flowed. But we got everything unhooked and packed in its place and ready to go. As soon and I cleaned up and changed we finally pulled out around 10:50. One of the first things we noticed was the decrease in traffic from the time we traveled the same roads in July. It seems that since school has started, the traffic has decreased. Now that is not to say that I-40E was not heavily traveled but it was much more manageable than...

Aug 9, 2019 - Tiffin Service Center, Red Bay, AL

When we departed the Paris Winery, we knew we were only 100 miles away from our ultimate destination of Red Bay and the Tiffin Motorhome Service Center. We need to have some work done, a total of about 5 items need to be fixed. Our shower door is difficult to close, the side shades in the cockpit are drooping down on one end, the cabinets above the dashboard have spaces showing, a clothes drawer needs new sliding mechanism, outside and underneath a spacer bar separating the hydraulic jacks has a broken weld. The service center is setup with...

Jun 19, 2019 - Natchez trace and Elvis birthplace

Today we took a scenic drive to the Natchez Trace and followed it to Tupelo. The visitor center for the trace had a movie that gave history of it’s establishment, was the route from Natchez to Nashville in the late 1700’s and early 1800’s. There were boatmen called Kaintucks that took their goods down the Mississippi to Natchez on flat boats, then sold them for lumber and walked the 445 miles back to Nashville. Along the trace were Indian settlements, highway robbers and “stands” (inns) in 1800. This is a national park that winds through...

Jun 18, 2019 - Tiffin factory tour

We took the factory tour that lasted 1 1/2 hours and there were around 25 of us - doesn’t look as if there are that many people in town. We learned about the company starting in 1973. They have a 1976 Allegro on display with shag carpet, harvest gold and avocado green decor. Brings back memories of the 70’s. The tour took us through the entire plant and we learned the paint shop is in Mississippi, another tour. We learned the name Allegro was chosen for their models as being from the first letter of the alphabet, Tiffin became better known...

Jun 17, 2019 - Red Bay

Today the Tiffin people finally got the leveling jacks to function properly and we will be heading out of Red Bay and heading to New Jersey where we have a reservation at Four Seasons RV Park located in Woodstown, New Jersey. Ross and Marge did not leave Red Bay over the weekend because they were asked by the service techs to bring the slide-outs in and out and place the leveling system into Travel mode to be certain everything was working properly. Saturday they did as requested three times and each time the system worked as designed. On...

Jun 12, 2019 - Red Bay

We left the Deer Run RV Park early Wednesday morning and we drove to Madison, Florida and stayed in an RV park that I would not recommend to anyone. Not only was there no WIFI the trees blocked our ability to obtain satellite TV signals. We had had a very tiring drive and we simply didn’t want to move to another RV park. Early the next morning we left Madison and headed to the Ridge Crest RV Resort in Leesburg, Florida. Traffic was relatively light and I-10 in most of Florida is a very good road. Not only is the road surface in good...

Jun 1, 2019 - Red Bay

We arrived in Red Bay on Tuesday, May 21 and today it is June 1 and we plan on leaving Red Bay this coming Monday, June 3. The motorhome has not been washed since we left home and it is in dire need of a wash job. There is a shop nearby that washes motorhomes and we have made an appointment to have the motorhome washed Monday before we leave Red Bay. As for the repairs it is fair to say that everything was addressed but not everything repaired. The primary reason Ross choose to come to Red Bay for repairs was because the manager of the...

May 6, 2019 - A Tour of The Tiffin Motorhome Plant

We arrived in Red Bay, Alabama yesterday (5/5) so that we could tour the Tiffin Motorhome Factory on Monday. Red Bay, Alabama is on the Alabama/Mississippi state line, just north of Tupelo. Bob Tiffin started building Tiffin Motorhomes in an abandoned cotton mill/warehouse in 1973 and is still hands on in the business. Today, Tiffin is completing the build of eleven (11) motorhomes per week. A motorhome takes about four months to build from start to finish. Tiffin has several facilities around the area like the paint shop that is located in...

Apr 16, 2019 - Tiffin Motorhomes, Red Bay, Alabama

After the terrible storm with tornados on Saturday, we decided to stay another day to let the winds subside. So, we stayed inside and let the world go by, tuneing in to the Masters Golf Tournament. We watched our many favorites play their best, but rooted vehemently for Tiger Woods as he plied his skill set so confidently to win the 2019 Masters. What a comeback, what tenacity making the impossible, possible. On Monday, we departed Vicksburg heading east then northeast the required 310 miles to Red Bay, Alabama. We used at least four...

Nov 5, 2018 - Red Bay (9/6/18)

Last night we stayed in Forest City, AR at the Delta Ridge RV Park. We ate dinner at a little café, Ole Saw Mill Café, which was walking distance. After that we stopped by a service station that sold Baskin Robbins ice cream and we partook of a tasty cone for dessert! We spent one night in Red Bay in a parking lot (one of 4 in town) that are set up for people who are purchasing and/or having repairs made to Tiffin motorhomes. Red Bay is the manufacturing town for the Tiffin motorhome company. Actually on our way to Red Bay, we passed back...
