I am still trying to figure out what ther groups are, units , clubs?
We had a motorhome and down sized but we want to belong to a group and have company to travel with to rallies as well as going on our own.
Why are so many unhappy?
Why not fight to change things?
Can someone tell me in simple languguage what the issues are?
bina, Your questions have no quick answer as they are complicated and really revolve are around the International. But in a nutshell they are.
Last year there was a motion to change the Club name after 50 years.
This year the International wants to allow in Motorhomes NOT made by Airstream if they have an "Airstream Edition" sticker on them.
You'll need to do your own research to see why people feel the way they do on this and make your own decision.
At the low end is the Unit. Thats the group of folks you'd be camping with.
All Units are different based on the people in them. Go visit all the Units in your area and I'm sure you'll find one where you all fit together. Join up and go camping and have fun. The Unit is really the most important part of the Club.
Personally I was/am against both of the issues above but I still think the WBCCI is a great club and a lot of fun.
P.S. Go on Forum Rallies too. I use any excuse I can find or make up to go camping.
