I have a dumb question?

Why did AS stop building Class A's in the first place?

There appears to be a demand for them.
How many units, I do not know?

It's only been a few years since they stopped rolling Class A's off the line. From what I remember Airstream could not compete on price with comparable models from the competition and sales were sluggish.

They were working on a new aluminum version that was going to have to be priced even higher - that project was killed as well. i'm sure there is an image somewhere here at the forums. it can be seen on page 170 in Wanderlust.

Greg,

My guess is that, since they never were a major player in the motorhome area, it was a profit decision. They could direct their energies away from the distraction and cost of building motorhomes and toward trailers. The current B Vans are merely conversions, no special construction procedures and equipment needed, unlike the box motorhomes which have a completely different exterior construction.

Dave,

Nothing "subversive" here... they are doing it right out in front for everyone to see.

The argument I hear the most is their MH are aging and the repairs are very high where they may spend thousands on the road if they breakdown.

I don't buy that argument totally, preventive maintenance can resolve that most of the time.

The DP motor can go at least 500,000 miles before a rebuild which may cost 10K?

Less then a new one. They can join the VAC with their old MH

Since I have the same risk as my '07 GMC breaking down while towing as a MH does I don't buy that argument.

One argument you'll likely hear is this one.( don't shoot the messenger)

If AirStream goes into production fine they have the new MH.

If not allow them to have a sob MH if they have been members continuously for at least 10 years

Why can't they buy a good used unit?

Here is a link to a great hardy used 2005 40 foot long Airstream Motor home offered for only $100,000 and has only 14,000 miles on it. There are more of them out there like this. It is a better buy than a SOB for over $200,000. Do not be fooled by the arguement that they need to by a SOB motor home. They do not need to, They want to. http://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/rvs/2017925671.html

The motor home would need to be a 1984 or earlier to be in the Vintage Club. Your 07 GMC is not a very good example of the vintage fit. Maybe by 2032 it will be though....

Thor can do anything it wants. If they make an AS MH then it can be used as membership in the club. We members can do nothing . If titled as AS these would be no different than a BVAN or any other earlier AS MH. Methinks you are trying to stir thingsup. zz

That is interesting. Are you saying WBCCI has more than one definition of membership? That sound like something Elliot Spitzer or Charley Scheen would be interested in. One definition of fidelity for home and another for whoring around.

You may be right. "The suspension or expulsion of any member as provided in this article shall be deemed to include the spouse or significant other". In other sections of the BB they may have another definition of membership that meets their needs at that point. I may have made the mistake that a definition was just that a definition.

You may remember my most resent interest relating to the WBCCI was in regards to suspension of a member so that was the definition I was focused on.
