SOUTHEAST COUNTRY COACHERS SPRING RALLY

CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE


The Southeasters were ready for some fun. Even before the rally started the men gathered together, as usual, to work on various coach tasks.

Our campground was the newly opened Hawkins Pointe RV Park just across the Tennessee state line in Rossville Georgia, convenient to Interstate 75 and the many things to do in Chattanooga. Owners John and Karen Hawkins are past members of SECC so we were excited to see their new venture. Our rally meeting “room” was their large RV storage barn and attached patio which worked very well for cool mornings and evenings when we enjoyed cocktail hour and catered meals.

Chattanooga was once known as one of the dirtiest, most polluted cities in the country. It is now a beautiful, healthy tourist destination with dozens of places to explore. Our first morning included an open-air van tour so everyone could get a good overview of the many sites they would want to return to see on their own. 

Many of our group now have Ebikes and enjoyed having a free day to ride part of the beautiful 16 mile Riverwalk along the Tennessee river.

The ultra- modern Tennessee Aquarium is in the background, the highlight of the active waterfront that began its transformation of the city in the early 90’s.                                                                                                          


We enjoyed a dinner cruise on the Southern Belle, an old paddlewheel. It was a warm spring evening to be outside watching the city go by.

Our campground host John Hawkins is VP of Manufacturing of nearby Miller Industries. Miller Industries is the international manufacturer of those gigantic tow trucks that haul 18 wheelers, and the only ones that can safely and properly tow our Country Coaches. John and an associate took us on a very special private tour of the plant. Many of the vehicles we saw were customized to order. It was an amazing tour for everyone.

THE CITY
Come explore Chattanooga Tennessee with us.  As with many Southern cities, Chattanooga has gone through a Renaissance to become an exciting destination with dozens of things to do. Frequently  listed nationally as a great vacation destination.


This is a beautiful city situated on both sides of the wide Tennessee River with a pedestrian bridge allowing easy access between the busy modern downtown and the quirky artsy North Shore.


Visitors have traveled to Chattanooga for more than a century to visit famous Rock City and Ruby Falls atop Lookout Mountain, and the nearby Chickamauga Battlefield. 

 

Now they also come to its famous aquarium, the highly respected Hunter Museum of American Art in the Bluff View Arts district and the wonderful Tennessee River Park, a 13 mile walking/biking path along the river bank that stretches from the old steel mills, past river-view eateries, on up to the dam. The blue pedestrian bridge links it all to the North Shore village and parks.

Your rally fee will cover a dinner cruise on the Tennessee River, trolley tour, tour of the big-rig tow truck manufacturing plant, 2 breakfasts and Friday dinner.

 

THE RV PARK


Hawkins Pointe is a brand new RV park catering to high end, self-contained coaches, owned by a former SECC members John and Karen Hawkins. We will be their first rally. Their web site is a work in progress and please understand that it is still winter there. It will be continuously updated as Spring and landscaping arrives. Apple Maps has been slow to get them listed, but yes, they are there. The old Holiday campground known for flooding is across the road. Hawkin’s very large bus barn will be our rally meeting area with kitchen and BBQ, fire pit. John is very meticulous in everything he does so it will be exciting to see the results.   We have been told that their internet is one of the best around.

John is VP of Manufacturing at Miller Industries, manufacturers of the huge tow trucks that haul 18 wheelers and coaches like our CCs. We will have a special tour of the factory.

We have a great rate of $50. Reserve your site now. Remember to tell them you are part of the rally.
