    About the Chapter

    We are the Carri-Yals of Illinois, our first campout and business meeting as a chapter was held on July 24, 1977. We received our charter from Carriage Travel Club on September 10, 1977 making us the third oldest chapter in the National Club. The Carri- Yals have campouts from May through October each year with 10 to 15 rigs per campout. We currently have 24 rigs on our membership rolls now from Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa, and Illinois and 4 honorary members on our rolls. If you would like to have a fun campout with food, fellowship, educational sightseeing and again I mention FOOD, please stop by one of our campouts and enjoy. The Carri-Yals is still going strong with new members being added to our club roster. Currently we just added 3 new units and another 1 possibly next year. We are committed to the future of the Carriage Travel Club in spite of Carriage Company closing in 2011 and Lifestyle closing their doors in 2016. Our members that go south for the winter plan for at least one if not two luncheon meetings during that time to get together. As our former Historian once wrote: “It is my opinion that the members of the Carri-Yals are the most congenial and friendly people I have ever met.”
