By Donna McCollum

NACOGDOCHES, TX - (KTRE) A defamation lawsuit has been filed by Foretravel against one of its former employees. The luxury motorhome manufacturer is suing Motorhomes of Texas.   Foretravel claims that Motorhomes of Texas owner David Robertson gave John Christman, an owner of a Foretravel motorcoach, the "go ahead" to publish insulting remarks about Foretravel and company owner, Lyle Reed, on a Foretravel members only website.

Foretravel claims Motorhomes wrote that Foretravel is doing "everything in its power to squeeze the life blood out of Motorhomes of Texas". Foretravel is seeking to drop Motorhomes as a dealer.

Foretravel executives were not available for comment. The company's attorney wouldn't speak publicly about the suit. Robertson denies all the allegations. By phone he said he's confident an amicable agreement will be reached within 30 days. Robertson said he supports Foretravel 100 % and wants what's good for the industry.
