I would love to have a MH rally. Last year Alan and I parked next to each other at the Spring Rally in Georgia and it was great to see two 280s sitting next to each other. Sadly that will not happen again since Alan's 280 has gone overseas.
June is out, I will be camp hosting unless you all want to come to Wisconsin, Pike Lake State Park. August, I will be taking my son to Maine to celebrate his tenth anniversary of his hike of the Appalachia Trail. July I do weddings. How about real early in March or late in October? Somewhere central, Missouri?

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?

I love the Interstate and wish they would put a slide out on it so there would be a schooch more room. Then I would have something to move up to.

Yes, I would be interested in a motorhome only rally, but keep in mind, we own a SQ. fiberglass one. The easiest thing would be, to form a chapter with the FMCA. They won,t worry about whether a motorhome assembled by and sold by Airstream is really an Airstream. They worry about how much fun and fellowship they can put into a rally.
Also Mike Lewis, we have be treated rudely by a lot more AS trailer owners than MH owners, so we think the snobbery may be from all that shiny aluminum.

Question MoHo Rally

Can a "former" Airstream Moho owner go? I still think we should let all aluminum trailers and MoHos into whatever is going on. (Not talking about WBCCI) I found a fantastic Avion trailer when I had to sell my MoHo, so now I'm an orphan. My Avion would pass for an Airstream, especially since they went to the "wide body". I know this will never happen, but think of all those vintage aluminum trailers roaming the country that don't have a company still manufacturing them.

Best,

I too would love to have a MoHo rally. For us it would have to be some where in the Midwest or South though this year.

You know, that's a great idea. I didn't even think of a sub group in FMCA. I already belong to that organization and maybe that's the way to go. Something like an orphans club for Airstream, Avion, and Argosy motorhomes. I'll have to do some checking on the FMCA bylaws.

Maybe just a club for vintage motorhomes. I wonder in three years when my unit is twenty five years old, how the VAC is going to react. We would of course welcome associate members with trailers and so on. Whoever is interested.

I went over to FMCA's site and they have a lot of sub groups already. Use the link below and then select "Special Interest".
Chapter Search

I'm quite sure they would create one for us if there are enough members that want it. The problem is they don't include trailers. They do say however that non-members are welcome at rallys unless space is limited and reservations required.

What would we want to call a sub group? How would we define it?
We could do what I suggested earlier.

We joined FMCA for one year and went to the the rally in Minot, N.D. We have no interest in re-joining FMCA.

I would, however, be very happy to attend any event where a substantial number of Airstream Motorhome owners who are forum members will be. I'm not trying to exclude non forum members, they are welcome as far as I am concerned, as are Airstream trailer owners. And others for that matter. The primary objective for us would be to trade experiences with other Airstream motorhome owners and to meet forum members.

Again, I don't own a classic MH, but I called AS on friday and gave them my S/N for my boxy fiberglass 396XL and they assured me that I did indeed own a (REAL) AS motorhome, so I would like to be included. We are retired, so any schedule that can be worked out will be fine with us.

I don't have a horse in this race but...

I have only been fortunate enough to see inside two moho's. Straight streams rather elegant Alumitube and a stock Landyacht at the beach. I'd love to see more as one day a Moho may be the right RV for us.

I really want you guys to have a Moho party. You can learn from each other and the rest of us can see cool stuff.

It seems that folks are leaning into subgrouping i.e. vintage, Moho and lately jokes about starting a FB club.

I rather like the idea that an all inclusive Airstream group would be best. I like to see and be with every type of Airstream when we gather.

It just seems to me that some folks need to step back from how they percieve others feel about their style of RV. Going "up" in the RV world means size not status. Choose what makes you happy and be happy with it.

Remember, I'm pulling for you. We're all in this together.

Thank you for letting me use this soapbox. I will now be quiet.

I'll do some more research on FMCA. Their rules allow guests to any rally so it could be all inclusiver. We could also form a sub group under the WBCCI, but I for one would like to get away from all the bickering.
