http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...tem=1835383877

"Pinnacle by Airstream 31 ' 1991"

What is this? Is this a Land Yacht sold under Thor's name?

Fred,

I believe you are correct. Thor does this from time to time when trying new models like the skydeck seen at the RV show. I have seen fiberglass MHs with the names Regency, and Residence as well as the Pinnacle. Most of the Fibeglass "box" Style MH I believe are made at the Dutchman factory, and have the Airstream fabrics, and graphics applied to the same chassis as the Four Winds line.

Take a look at this link to see how the technologiy is spread thru the Thor Line. http://www.thorindustries.com/script...p=10&year=2002

I understand that AS will be releasing a class C soon. I assume it will just be a diffrent paint scheme and inteior trim of a Four Winds or a General Coach BC motorhome. If you check out the General Coach BC portion of the Thor site you will see that the class "C" motorhomes are already called the Corsair Excella. This was not the way they were named 6 months ago. Hmmmm.....

Here are some more examples.

http://www.rvtraderonline.com/caddet...8/26726988.htm

http://adcache.rvtraderonline.com/3/1/6/27001816.htm

http://adcache.rvtraderonline.com/3/9/7/1974897.htm

If that's the case, they would not qualify for WBCCI. If so, would not all Thor products be eligible?

You would be correct that these are Thor Products and therefore not eligible for WBCCI membership.

The WBCCI charter says in Article VI section 1, that the RV Must be built by Airstream, Inc. Therefore Thor branded products are not eligbile.

The Pinnacle that started it all may have the Airstream name on it, they were very lax with what motorhomes they put it on in the 90's. The Aluminum Classics were not selling due to $$$$ and they were trying to find out what would appeal to the buyers.
