Freightliner Chassis Owners Club Boasts 4,000 Members
GAFFNEY, S.C. — The Freightliner Chassis Owners Club has grown to 4,000 membersi -- and club president Ken Hawk of Richardson, Texas, thinks he knows why.
“We say owning a motorhome allows us the flexibility to see what we want to see when we want to see it, and take any amount of time we need to see this country of ours,” said Hawk of the club’s members, who live throughout the United States and travel extensively in their motorhomes.
Membership in the club, which began in 1994, is open to members of the Family Motor Coach Association who own an FMCA-qualifying coach on a Freightliner Custom Chassis.
The lure of the open road is strong to club members and so is the support and advice they receive from Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation at their bi-annual rallies.
“The number-one purpose of our rallies is safety. We are dedicated to being safer, more knowledgeable, better trained and more aware of how to keep our motorhomes safe on the road,” Hawk said. “Freightliner is a main supporter. They give demonstrations on their chassis, even bringing one without a motorhome attached so we can get a good look.”
Freightliner Chassis Owners Club members qualify for the DaimlerChrysler Affiliate Rewards program, where they have the opportunity to purchase or lease select new Chrysler, Jeep or Dodge vehicles at the Preferred Price, which is below factory invoice.
