You can also find folks offering CP here on the Forums as follows:

Go to the "Community" drop down menu in the blue bar above > Select "Members List"
Select "Search Members" in blue bar on the right them "Advanced Search"
Select the "State" you are interested in finding someone in, scroll down &
Select "Yes" for the Courtesy Parking option scroll down &
Click "Search Now"

If you want to narrow down yor search, put in both a City & State.

Folks offering Courtesy Parking will come up in a new window. Then you just have to contact them and see if they are open for visitor when you plan on passing through.

That is more than 6 steps to get to courtesy parking. Even more if you mess up. Couldn't a tab for the Courtesy Parking be added on the front page for all of us computer handicapped.

If you are a member of the WBCCI, the listing is in your owners handbook. Jim

Really? When I registered with Air Forums the question was asked if I was able to offer courtesy parking. I don't remember anything about a requirement having to deny folks who were not members. I would imagine that most of those found in the WBCCI directory are also listed here on the forum. So, suppose I were to call someone on the list to ask for help. Would they have to ask me for the secret handshake before they would help out? I guess it is this kind of silliness that keeps people from joining up.

If you are a member you will have access to the easy to read directory. I would hope that that is where it ends. If someone denied CP to me because I was not a member I would be happy not to stay at this person's home.

My experience has been unbelievable! Just this week I was at a gas station. A very elderly gentleman pulled up to me and asked if we needed a place to stay!
We accepted his very generous offer and well we are still visiting with him 4 days later! We have visited his farm and been shown everything about his town!
He has not been a WBCCI member on nearly 25 years.

There are truly gracious people left.
We have made a wonderful friend and have enjoyed incredible hospitality.

As far as offering a place to others, when at home we host Airstreamers many times a season and often in the winter

I do not think that will be a problem. WBCCI members who identify themselves on AirForums as providing courtesy parking have already decided not to limit their hospitality to just fellow WBCCI members.

But don't forget, courtesy parking is by invitation; it's a privilege, not a right. You can ask for an invitation, but the host may have reasons for not inviting you that have nothing at all to do with you or your Airstream. Such as the only available courtesy parking spot already being occupied by another traveler, for just one example. Don't take it personally if you ask and get turned down, whether it's a WBCCI member or not.

The WBCCI courtesy parking list and the AIRForums one surely have some overlap, but there are lots of WBCCI members who aren't on AIRForums at all, and lots of AIRForums members who aren't in WBCCI so both lists are useful, and AFAIK there's no requirement for WBCCI membership for the AIRForums courtesy-parking. If the person w/ courtesy parking advertises both places, they're clearly offering it to any Airstreamer. If they only offer it via the WBCCI, you wouldn't see them on here, so the only ppl who'd contact them would be using the WBCCI directory.

I don't think there should be any reason for them to ask, in other words. If you can find them, they're offering parking.

The vast majority of WBCCI members are not on the forums and could care less about them. Just as I believe most on the forums do not care about the club. Being a member of both is a happy medium. Jim

A lot of them don't even have or want e-mail for that matter, and so couldn't set up a Forums profile to begin with. In just the "A"s, of 170 names listed in the annual directory, 21 do not have a listed e-mail address. That's 12% just of those whose surnames begin with A. I haven't figured it out for the whole club, but it's reasonable to assume that the percentage isn't that much different.

Interestingly enough, the WBCCI members who offer courtesy parking are the only ones in the whole club to have their telephone numbers listed in the annual directory. Except one— in Washington, DC— whose telephone number isn't listed even though he offers courtesy parking.

WBCCI courtesy parking is offered in 44 states plus DC, and 5 Canadian provinces. Nobody listed in Alaska, Arkansas, Hawaii, Minnesota, Mississippi, Oklahoma, or West Virginia, or in Alberta, Manitoba, Newfoundland/Labrador, Prince Edward Island, or Saskatchewan. But new members added since the annual directory was published may offer courtesy parking in some of those states and provinces.

We belong to both and offer courtesy parking. We have only had one person call about it, but we weren't going to be home and we weren't near where the person thought we were.

Does anyone who has courtesy parking live near the factory or in Indiana?
We will be traveling that way after our service center appointment September 17.
I plan on visiting the Air Force museum, Neil Armstrong museum, and bicycle museum in Ohio.
I plan on visiting the Studebaker museum, the Auburn Cord Duesenberg museum and rv/motorhome Hall of Fame in Indiana.
May do more if time permits.
