This new FMCA chapter focuses on a luxurious fifth-wheel brand.

The group called Teton Club International (TCI) was started in 1990 by Robert “Boots” Ingram. He founded Teton Homes, a luxury towable RV company, in 1966. The club helps to promote the RV lifestyle among owners of Teton Homes fifth-wheels.
TCI became an FMCA chapter in June 2019 in an effort to find some new members. We are the first FMCA chapter focused on a fifth-wheel brand. But the club is much more than Teton ownership. Our motto is “A Family of Friends,” and the rallies are about friends getting together and helping other friends.
We celebrated the club’s 30th anniversary at this year’s rally, held September 24 to October 1 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. One of the traditions of the club is to support the community in the city where we hold our rallies. We do this by organizing a raffle during our get-together and giving the money to a charity in that city. This year we raised more than $2,800 for the local City Rescue Mission.
All of our rallies are at destinations where we visit area attractions. This year we heard stories of Oklahoma City’s past from a “living history” expert; visited the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum; saw the Chihuly glass exhibit at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art; and explored the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.
If you own a Teton Homes RV, or formerly belonged to TCI, and this sounds like a chapter that would work for you, please fill out a member application at www.tetoners.org or contact me, Jeff Engel, at [email protected] for more information.
