Am I missing something? I don't see any 'club' aspect to this thing.

Most bizarre site. I think I'd put them on my block list.

I really don't see anything 'harmful' about this group of collectors, that wish to call themselves a 'club'...It would seem that all they are asking is that owners of 'silver' trailers for sale, give them a crack at making an offer before going public with an ad, etc - a reasonable request, IMHO...

As always, anyone selling a large value item should take precautions during the sale, not giving up the item before the payment is secured, etc., etc...We've all read the eBay horror stories about this kind of stuff...

BTW, I see a couple of 'completed' looking AS's on their home page...they're shiny looking, at any rate...and lest we forget, it can take years to 'complete' a restoration of these older rigs!

Just because the membership is closed doesn't mean it's not a club.

I do think their "What do I do next" page is a little scary. Don't want no registered sex offenders coming to look at MY trailer.

Doesnt look particularly nefarious to me. Can't say I buy into all of their logic, but so what? From the way the thing reads it sounds like some of the group unhappy with WBCCI and so forth. The way they put up the contact info is weird, using (at) in place of @ and (dot) in place of ..

On the other hand, it is strange that these guys aren't well known here. Anything AS that isnt on our collective radar here makes me suspicious.

Using (at) and (dot) is one method of keeping Spam Bots from copying one's email address... disguising your email addy makes it a bit harder to be copyed by these bots...however now that Lynn, in the post above has copied the 'public' data here in our forum, that (dot) type cover has been blown...I would think a 'link' to this data would have been sufficient, instead of copying it in an 'open' post...

I've heard that these Spam Scums can unleash software to comb forums and blogs to find email address' by the thousands and sell em' to vendors of those 'weird' ads that show up in your email in box!

Not to worry. Publically available info is publically available info. Spammers can get much, MUCH more info from WHOIS sources than from forums. (Note, too, that the registration email address is not the same as the address used in the website contact.)

How did you find this site>

Someone spent a lot of time creating this web site but went out of their way not to have any "LINKS", or easy to find contact information. This kind of flies in the face of logic or is just plain dumb.

It appears that the name of the administrator is a Latvian womans name, and the website has only been in existence for less than a year.
I think it could be a scam. Anyway, who out there thinks that they would get a better price for their unit by going to someone who fishes like this, rather than listing it on craigslist, or ebay. This is a business venture. They are looking for bargains in any condition. I would bet they ship them overseas or part them out, or find people to scam in other ways using this as a foot-in-the-door.
Does anyone here think that there could be an exclusive, nation-wide Airstream collectors club in existence for more than a week without someone here being in on it and bringing it to our attention?
I don't think so.
