The CAT RV Club was started by Don Tallman and a group of FMCA motor home owners whose coaches were powered by CAT Diesel Engines.

A Special thanks to Don Tallman and Suzie Adcock for getting this club off the ground!
As the times changed, members expressed their desire for the Chapter to take steps to ensure the continued service to the concerns and interests of diesel motor home owners. Our members are the backbone of the Club and their expectation for it to enhance the diesel motor home experience drives our mix of technical and social activities. Membership in the Chapter, is contingent - just as it is with FMCA - on ownership of a qualifying RV: "a self-contained wheeled vehicle that includes permanently installed cooking, sleeping, and sanitary facilities.” In addition, the Chapter sponsors a Technical Forum that is open to the public.
