While the Tennessee Travelers Rally in Stone Mountain had one more day to go, we bid farewell to the group and headed for Sevierville, TN so we could be there for the first day of our first ever Thor Rally. Our Tuscany (coach) is made by Thor and we have been wanting to attend one of their rallies to meet and talk with other coach owners, but it has never worked out for us until now. The five hour drive from Stone Mountain to Sevierville, Tn was thankfully uneventful and we arrived at River Plantation RV Resort around 2:30, got set up, and checked in for the rally.
As with the place in Pine Mountain, I would not call this an RV Resort but it is a nice campground. Here are some shots of the campground and our site #166.
We had stayed at River Plantation on the shakedown trip with our coach when it was new and had a spot on the river for that visit.
The Thor Diesel Club is made up of owners of the various diesel pusher motor coaches that Thor has manufactured and it includes the four models now in production and one that is no longer being produced. The club hosts rallies around the country each year then the big one in Goshen, IN each October which is near the factory. I’m not sure how many coaches are in the club but there are about 70 at this rally with folks from as far away as Texas and South Dakota.
For the rally fee, the club provides breakfast, happy hour, and supper each day and arranged for five different activities during the week. We see this as an opportunity to learn from other owners as well as the Thor and Freightliner reps who are here.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
