Thank you JB! I think that an Airstream is an Airstream. My next Airstream will most likely be equipted with a drive shaft. We have a MH signed up for the 4CU Rally next month and I am looking forward to checking it out.

Coop..I for one think it's a great idea. I like Airstreams and I like motorhomes and I like camping. Is there anything else I need to qualify?

TWIMC - don't misinterpret the term "trade up". It's common to use this phrase when talking about moving from one class of RV "Fifth Wheel" to another such as "Class A" or from an older year to a new year. Typically is has to do with the money involved in the transaction (up) or a year (up) or model (up) improvement. It does not necessarily imply anything other than that. If you need to make an issue out of it...it's your issue alone.

You have a mid 80's 345? That is just what I am think will be my next AS! Now, if I can find a low milage diesel in mint condition for $15,000 . Should I bring my checkbook?

Well, we don't have a diesel, and if I sold it for 15, Deb would make me go with it. See you in a week. Ron

Thanks, Of course that's how I meant it. Most of my Airstream friends have very nice trailers.
JBK, nope, that was another one I guess.
Mike, Sorry you're offended buddy. You might want to think about it a little.

Airstream MOHO?

Man, it looks like someone sat on the Fire Ant Nest, or at least kicked it.
My story is, I once owned a SOB trailer, towed it for thousands of miles, and got much use from it. When we came back from overseas, we looked for several months for an Airstream, but the trailers all seemed to be a little big or over priced. Then we found the Interstate and were amazed at what it offered.
See, we had gotten used to the convenience of a VW camper (parking, multiuse, etc) and the Interstate was a nice fit to our needs.
All that leads up the question: Is this a motorhome, by the strict definition of the term?
regards

A trailer with an engine in it is an upgrade, no?

I went to a rally once at the Russian River (Cassini Ranch). I was the only classic motorhome there. I felt verrry welcomed and many people wanted to tour my moho, as did I their trailers. It was way cool. I for one would not want to hitch and unhitch a trailer, so an enginized one is great for me.

I think that a rally should be able to have ANY Airstream vehicle present with out so much as a fuss. I'd even love to see a Bluebird there too.

Maybe even anything painted silver...nah!

Say, how about we bring this back to the original topic, a rally where we could try to get a bunch of motorhomes together.

My suggestion is that each motorhome owner who might be interested in such an event post the months and states they would consider.

I'll start:

When - any time after mid March, although a bit more lead time might be nice.

Where - anywhere in North America except Alaska (much as I'd like to make that trip I don't want to beat my rig to death getting up there). Closer to California would make it easier for me.

I have six acres on the Upper Sacramento River (blue ribbon trout stream). I have a dump station, 50 amp power, and "The best water on earth", and Wifi. You'd all be welcome here.

I have a friend who has a camp ground in North Dakota with whom we could work something out. How about Jackson Center? We could go to New Orleans and give the economy a boost. Just some thoughts.

I started to post a similar thought, but got called away before finishing. Great Idea! I live just south of Minneapolis, Minnesota and have ten acres of woods on a primitive lake. I can park three or four and have thirty amp service, bad tasting water, (sorry), but lots of scenery. Mall of America is twenty minutes away.
Although we have not explored the west, (well, went up to Calgory once), I really can't get away long enough to do that yet. I know of several Motorhome owners in this area who are not all WBCCI members, but follow the forum.
I think it would be very interesting to rally and compare improvements that we've made and problems we have solved. North Dakota would also work for me or Iowa or Wisconsin or South Dakota. couldn't get much further right now though.

Interested.

We would be interested in getting together with other moho owners. California would be a sure thing. Anything east of Arizona may be out of the question right now. But, we'll see what comes up. I have always felt very welcome at rallys where we are the only moho. I wouldn't feel real comfortable if we did something and didn't open it up to our TT friends. That isn't the plan is it? Ron

Really haven't worked out a plan yet, but I've never been to anything that didn't include the entire club. The Vintage group welcomes anyone as do many of the other sub groups.

My only thought was to see how many motorhomers we could gather to share common interests. Our problems are quite a bit different that the TT's. I see your rig is as old as mine and I'll bet it keeps you busy as well.

It does! We keep telling ourselves that it is a "labor of love". I have to say, that now that most of the little bugaboos have been worked out, we are starting to have many problem free trips.
