Perspective, name games

Many of the readers see variations of names for the WBCCI, the Club is the Wally Byam Caravan Club International, founded in 1955. There are no aka's, there are sub-clubs like the VAC, or Vintage Airstream Club. To belong to the sub-club you must also be a member of the WBCCI.

If there are aka's that are legally incorporated, let me know.

I recently found the following on the net, and feel that it may confuse the many Airstream owners, followers and even Club members.


"The Wally Byam Caravan Club International (WBCCI, for short - aka “The Airstream RV Association”) is a club for Airstream trailer and motorhome owners."

Pee Wee,

Looks like there is only one name listed on the Secretary of States information and then one name change. I couldn't find any references to the VAC as a separate corporation.

It isn't - as PeeWee stated, it's an Intra-Club (sub-club) of the WBCCI.

Sorry guess I should have made myself more clear. I was simply agreeing, to the extent that that even the VAC does not appear to be filed separately which a sub organization could be.....

I used to belong to the Sub Club, but then someone started printing their own stamps, and "Bye-Bye".

No more free Subway sandwiches.
