The summer 2019 issue of Safari Trails

Look for it soon!

It is Here!

You will certainly enjoy reading the article about “Kevlar cop” and be sure to look for a new feature called “Remember when.”
An email notice will let you know when your issue arrives – some time between June 26 and July 1, so be sure to look for it.
As most of you know, effective this issue, our club magazine will be sent out only by email.  An explanation can be found in the “Notes from the Editor” column.

I have an invitation for all of you who enjoy our rallies or take advantage of coach, travel and club information in our quarterly magazine Safari Trails and on this website.  I invite you to think about taking an active part in your club.

It is an often stated truth that there is never a job left undone at a rally because Safari members will always volunteer.

The same cannot be said for serving the Club as a member of the Executive Board.  Those of us who have served or are presently serving the Club in some capacity will tell you that the comparatively small amount of time spent on Club business is well worth the effort.  The Executive Board, which consists of five National Officers, seven Regional Vice Presidents and the Alternate FMCA National Director, is responsible for governing our Club.  Virtually all business is conducted via email.

As a member of the Board you will have a say in the future of Safari International.  You will be working with Board members from across the country.  Over the years I have served Safari International as Regional Vice President and President, I have had the pleasure of working with many people who wanted to do their part for our Club.  All of us have our own personalities which reflect who we are, where we have lived and what we did when we had j-o-b-s.  The two factors that we have in common are a love of the motorhome lifestyle and a desire to do what is best for Safari International.  We do not always agree on what that is, but there can be no doubt that we are all sincere.

If you would like more information about joining us as part of the Executive Board, please feel free to call me or any member of the Board.  Our contact information is available in the “About Us” section on this website and in every issue of Safari Trails.

Bill Trendler, President 



Forum Changes

We now have a new category in our Forum. Actually, there are three new categories. All of them are viewable by the non-members, but only registered and signed-in members can post to these new categories. They are a parent category of Classified Ads and then the three new sub categories are Safari Motor Homes, Safari Related Items, and All Other Items. This last category is where a member may post other brands of Motor Homes, Toads, BBQ’s, Pop-Up Awnings, etc. If you have it for sale, we have a place to advertise.


PayPal - We now accept PayPal (no PayPal account needed) for membership applications and renewals.

Safari International has a number of manuals, brochures and files available for you to read or copy.  We have added a "Manuals and Files" menu item in our Members area and are continuing to collect these items from our members.  You can help us by emailing your scanned digitized PDF files to our webmaster at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. PDF files are the only files that we can accept.
