About Us

We are the Thor Diesel Club



The Thor Diesel Club was formed in October of 2010. After working with the manufacturer, Thor Motor Coach, our first International Rally was held at the Elkhart County Fairgrounds. The first Board was voted in for a two-year term and an application was sent to the FMCA and was accepted as a full International Chapter. Today we are thriving. Our membership is growing as well as attendance at our Rallies and we look forward to supporting our membership, our community, Thor Motor Coach and the FMCA.
