3 digit numbers are not freed up or assigned according to membership numbers or availability but reserved and extended only to those deemed worthy by the International Club of executives. Fast forward Mad Max style and the EC7 will be alive and flying their banners across America without a club behind them. And wait til you get a load of those special badges then...

I love the Airstream Classic motorhomes. I was so looking forward to the new anniversary model motorhome in the Airstream iconic shape. Even though it would have been quite expensive it would have been very unique and cool. Instead Thor has offices at JC instead of production expansion. From an Airstream claim to fame that is no big shakes for the brand, not much different than the Beatrice Years I suspect. I wish they could have at least built the prototype that we all could visit and have enshrined at the factory. Airstream may be missing the mark of opportunity not creating a museum and design center separate from the factory tour.

Why stop at badges? Here are some special uniforms they could use:

MoHo Issue

With the third round of Moho's being interjected, perhaps an assortment of new uniforms is in order for bus drivers to aptly distinguish themselves from the common proletariats who must tow. Certainly, no one believes The Wallyites have nearly enough costumes at International to satisfy the multitude of special event days for full dress camping. A bus has plenty of "basement" to lay in a wide assortment of smart frocks and eye-bulging uniforms-of-the-day, especially with the space saving vacuum packs as-seen-on-tv. Picture the surprise on your friends' faces as you step out of your new Thor in your Gotham Bus Company starched and pressed suit! Beret Day? Not to worry! You'll fit right in sitting on the entry step playing "Lady of Spain" on your big sqeezebox. And just imagine yourself dressed to the nines in this fabulous Zulu outfit as you strut up the aisle during the Flag Ceremony. For those laid back bus owners who deign to mix with the lesser coach plebeians around a propane campfire, make a class-breaking statement in fur and animal skin!

I guess the goy with the brow ridges is the average trailer owner.

Maybe I really meant "goy" though I thought I was printing "guy". Another case of psychological stress.

There are a few significant parallels between declining WBCCI membership volume and the now extinct Neanderthal race although Paleolithic man never saw a bus.

Who's Driving the Bus

The Magic Thor that turns into an Airstream...

Every day I get in the queue
To get on the bus that takes me to you
I don't want to cause no fuss
But can I buy a Magic Bus?
Nooooooooo!

I don't care how much I pay
I wanna drive my bus to you each day

Magic Bus, Magic Bus, Magic Bus, Magic Bus
I want it, I want it, I want it...(You can't have it!)
Think how much you'll save...(You can't have it!)]
I want it, I want it, I want it, I want it ... (You can't have it!)

YouTube - ‪Magic Bus The Who ( HQ sound )‬‏

Bus ad nauseum

Maybe Roger Daltrey would sing "Magic Bus" at the 2012 International. Maybe not.
I did note some fetching camping haute couture on the likes of Joan Collins and Jayne Mansfield posing in front of a '47-'48 ACF Brill bus from the film "The Wayward Bus" (1957), adapted from John Steinbeck's 1949 novel of the same title. If the new Thor owners jettisoned their wives and replaced them with some kind of meat like this, perhaps the non-Airstream built busses would become more acceptable.

Please be careful when referring to moho owners in not so pleasant terms. I am not a moho owner but I find many tt owners a problem also, as you seem to find the moho owners. jim

We should always point out though that at least R1P Melocik GETS IT.

Unfortunately Melocik is swimming upstream under Class V conditions.

It's to be expected that RPs agree with the IP and EC7. It takes years of grooming before anyone can even hope to aspire to the next level with recommendation, otherwise as you know quite well, there is that special exit trajectory fast track reserved just for those who break the code. Melocik may be swimming now but he may be jetisonned in the future. I am sure he is on the new watch list.

btw MelocikWAY TO GO!! A leader among others. It's refreshing when someone has the courage to speak out and be the singular conduit of opposition in order to remain true to their own convictions. That head nodding magnetism is mighty powerful in a deliberative body of WBCCI. Lessors have often crumbled or been seduced by acceptance.

I don't believe in reviewing my posts on this topic that there are any modifiers referring to "the moho owners" in less than pleasant terms. You may have inferred such. The fact that the IBT (less one) has resurrected the acceptance of new or used non-Airstream built motor homes into the WBCCI for the third time is ridiculous. In many instances, situations like this are targeted for satire. "Satire: trenchant wit. irony, or sarcasm used to expose and discredit vice or folly" (Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary)
This topic qualifies quite well.
I do not find moho or travel trailer owners individually problematic, but when a group of either parties creates and continues to create a situation that previously has been found unacceptable to the whole, what exactly would you call it?

Don't think I would call this satire. I just call it offensive.
