More than 120 members of the North American Heartland Owners Club began arriving in Goshen, Ind., today (June 10) to celebrate the kick-off to the fourth annual Heartland RVs Owners Rally. The event, held at the Elkhart County 4-H Fairgrounds, runs June 11-14.


 The program is hosted by Heartland Owners Club, an association launched in November  2008 for members of Heartland Recreational Vehicles LLC fifth-wheels and travel  trailers.

 While members frequently meet in regional activities, the annual owners rally is the  largest event on the club calendar.

“Of the 272 registered club members, more than 45% are able to join us for this year’s event,” said Coley Brady, Heartland’s director of sales. “We are very pleased that we are able to attract such a high number of our North American Club member owners.”

This year’s national rally is particularly appealing to club members in that it is being staged near Heartland RV’s Elkhart headquarters. As a consequence, the usual menu of social and educational activities will be augmented with trips to the company’s manufacturing facilities.

“Those at our 2009 event will have the opportunity to participate in special sessions for maintenance and safety tips, factory tours, round-table discussions and new product ‘sneak peeks,'” Brady noted.

In 2010, the fifth annual North American Heartland Owners Rally will be held July 15-18, in Nashville, Tenn. For more information, go to www.heartlandowners.org.
