Exclamation No Rule Change Needed

DEFINITIONS OF MEMBER

1. Regular Member - An adult who owns a fully self contained and hard sided recreational vehicle manufactured by Airstream, Inc. ­and who has submitted a written applica­tion for membership and such adult pays International and Unit dues to a Unit of the International Club. Regular members who have sold their recreational vehicle manufactured by Airstream, Inc. may, upon request, retain their membership as Regular Members in a Unit and the International Club pursuant to the provisions of Sec. 2 ARTICLE VI of the International Constitution. Such Regular Members shall possess all the rights and privileges of the International Club, including full voting rights in all elections and on all questions. (7/5/96)



C. Regular Members, who were in good standing when they sold their recreational vehicle manufactured by Airstream, Inc., may, upon request, retain their membership as Regular Members, provided such members do not own another brand of recreational vehicle, except such Regular Members may own another brand of recreational vehicle that is parked in a permanent or semi-permanent location to be used by the members as a vacation facility or as a home. (6/29/96)



Here is my interpertation of how we can make this work without having to change the current rules.
Anyone who is a member in good standing at the time that Airstream quits making motorhomes simply makes a request to the Board to retain their membership after they sell their Airstream(Trailer , Motorhome, Basecamp whatever). They then purchase an SOB and are still members of the WBCCI.

Andy,

As I read it, if you another brand of RV as a recreational vehicle, you can't remain a member of the club unless you also have an Airstream. See the bold in the quote from the constitution.

"...may own another brand of recreational vehicle that is parked in a permanent or semi-permanent location to be used by the members as a vacation facility or as a home."

Jim

You aren't alone on this. It seems that a number of RV manufacturers neglect to consider the weight load on one side of the axle. They remain fixed on the load that both wheels can carry (which may be within specs), but if you weigh the load carried by one wheel, you may be finding that you are technically overloaded.

I attended a seminar on tire safety and this issue was brought out by the presenter. He noted that the day his motorhome rolled out of the factory, with driver weight, his left front wheel was overloaded. This is why when these weighing events occur at rallies, the folks use separate scales under each wheel. Most folks never consider weighing the load on each wheel when they go to truck scales.

My 2 cents

except such Regular Members may own another brand of recreational vehicle that is parked in a permanent or semi-permanent location to be used by the members as a vacation facility or as a home. (6/29/96)

I have sold my "AIRSTREAM" .
I have made a request to the Board to remain a member. Since I have been such an important part of the WBCCI for such a long time they grant my request.
I have bought an "SOB".

I wish to attend a rally, this rally is my vacation and I will be using my "SOB" while it is Semi-Peremanently parked at the rally site as my vacation home.

Technicalities, technicalities, technicalities! If you have the..., well, if you have the audacity to show up at a WBCCI rally in an SOB, then they should let you in!

It's not their fault you see. In fact we have members that are doing a second and even a third round as Officers because no one else has come foreward.

Jack, you may be right about some of the Officers but I know several and they seem to be opened minded to me. Maybe they've changed. Well, anyway, it gives an excuse to act in the same manner that you find fault with in them.


For me it's about the Motorhomes. It's also about people using there power for their own agenda. With the exception of the classics, motorhomes are not Airstreams. The good thing is a new club will emerge which is about Airstreams not the comfort of a few.

Apparently the IBT motorhome set is moving forward with their plan to put AIRSTEAM on another brand of motorhome. Frankly, I see no purpose in a club beyond the Unit level should this be successful. The people running things are focused on their own needs not Airstreams. They will have two other brand motorhomes at International for consideration. This will be a turning point. You may want to sign up for WACCI now to be a charter member. No officers, no dues, no constitution, no bullsh-t.

I see that point a little diffrently than you. A "Squarestream" Motorhome made by Airstream is an Airstream. A Mandalay with an Airstream badge is not an Airstream.

Airstream made/makes products from a Basecamp to a Skydeck to appeal to as many parts of the market as they can and anything they made/make that is contructed by Airstream is an Airstream.

What is an Airstream Westfalia? Is it an Airstream? If it is, and I believe it is considered one by WBCCI, then an Airstream Mandalay would be an Airstream. The precedence has been set!

If the quality of the Airstream Mandalay is anywhere near the quality of the Westfalia, it would certainly up the average quality of Airstream.
