Carol,

There are many advantages to each type of RV. We joined an Airstream club and not an RV club and we want it to remain an Airstream club.

Paula, you got it right on both accounts! We have two Airstream motorhomes and an Excella trailer. Reworking a trailer will generally cost less because it has fewer mechanicals.

Susan (Alumatube) got it right when she said neither of us are interested in a club that has so many issues with the top brass. We both work as government contractors and we get enough of that BS every working day to want to deal with it in our leisure time.

Just my $0.02 worth

Just slapped a stamp on this. Don't want to play anymore.

Jerry Collins, President
WBCCI Headquarters
PO Box 612
Jackson Center, OH 45334


Dear President Collins,

In light of the recent disclosure that the Region 3 leadership intends to resurrect the effort to allow non-Airstream built recreational vehicles into the Wally Byam Caravan Club International, my wife and I would like to resign our membership immediately.

"No" meant no.


Sadly,


Michael Hassall

After carefull and thoughtfull consideration on this matter, I have figured out a way for this to work. It is quite simple and meets club requirements. Take the money that has been saved by purchasing an SOB and buy a Base Camp to pull behind.

A suggestion

Making your feelings known on the Airforums is great but I can assure you that it isn't having any effect on the WBCCI as a whole.

If you truly are against this you need to log in to the WBCCI Forums and there is a thread started by 65GT raising this concern. Post your thoughts there as well even if you just cut and paste what you've said here into a post there.

WBCCI Forum -

If they see a groundswell of unhappy members inundating their Forum with issues like this maybe, and I say maybe, they will start to realize that they have created a big problem for themselves.

Right now they are believing that they are doing the right thing. They don't hear or read much of anything off of this site - I suspect they may see it as a competitor for the attention of Airstream owners. But you through your annual dues are paying for that site and it's a great place to let them know how you feel. Trust me on that one, I've been letting them know of my disillusionment lately.

Go there, let them know your feelings. You paid for it, if you don't use it how are they going to know the true feelings of the lowly first generation members?

Oh yeah, you might want to be a bit politer over there than I have been . I suspect they'll be burning a fat balding doll in effigy of me at Bozeman.

And I still think that wearing a black armband at WBCCI events to show our dismay at what the IBT are doing will start to let them know that we do care and we are not happy.

We love our moho because it's really hard to pull my racecar trailer behind a travel trailer!

But ours is a shiny silver tube and not a square white box.

I just posted my displeasure on the WBCCI Forum, and I highly encourage all WBCCI members to post there. Maybe the leadership will wake up.

And it's an AIRSTREAM/ARGOSY

Life is good when your RV "reflects" your good taste.

Yep, I agree with 65 Michael - someone needs to ask the unit Prez the hard question and to figure out who is driving this. It would sure be helpful to know if this is a personal agenda, a large group, or is being orchestrated elsewhere and your region is simply being used as the sponsor.

Ralph - good post on the WBCCI forum, thanks for that.

I suspect they are getting more activity there today than they have had for quite some time. It will hopefully get someones attention.

And to those who feel quiting is the answer, when you do that we lose one more strong voice and your vote to fix it. It's not the WBCCI that's buggered up, it's the current executive in place. Instead get hold of your local executive and ask them how they intend to vote, tell them of your displeasure at this coming up again, and that if they do so you will leave the organization as they are not respecting your wishes or the majority of the club. Telling them directly will have a lot of impact and if enough people do this perhaps this won't get further than it has.

Barry
