The RTMR was originally formed in October 2000 by a man called Bob Deane who had bought a Trafic motorhome but found very little third party technical support for it. Bob had the idea to form a group of owners who could pool technical knowledge about these vans.
Originally, there was to be no ‘social’ side to the RTMR, just an exchange of information, but eventually, members began to want more than this.
On the 19th of April 2002, the club held its first rally at Shardaroba Caravan Park at Teversal, Nottinghamshire. At the first ever AGM, a committee was appointed and the club was on its way.
The club survived until July 2021 when partly due to the covid19 pandemic, but mainly because of people depending more on social media to interact, it was considered no longer viable to continue running the club in the existing format.
The RTMR continues to exist, but now just as a Facebook group.
