I find it interesting that the largest kind of Airstreams for sale on WBCCI's Classified listings is big box Class-A Diesel pusher mohos.

Followers of this tread might get the idea that I am against the MOHO proposal. But after giving this some, I should say little, thought I would consider this as an alternative. Since it requires at least 2 persons co-ownership might also be justified.

We have branded Airstream motorhome with the land yacht decals and several other areas marked as an Airstream. Just to the left of the door the is a Thor motor coach decal. I am new to the discussion, so therefore I'm at a loss to understand the difference.

Thor makes other brands of motorhomes at other locations. Airstream motorhomes were made in Jackson Center, OH. The motorhomes manufactured there by the Airstream Div. of Thor are qualified to belong to WBCCI, Other Thor brands are not allowed to join WBCCI. Since the Airstream Div. no longer makes motorhomes, there has been a fight, by a small number of current motorhome owners, to allow them to replace their Airstream motorhomes with ones made by other divisions of Thor. The majority of the club membership has voted repeatedly to not allow this to happen.

Motorhomes

All Airstream and Argosy Motorhomes are allowed in the WBCCI. This is not an issue about Motorhomes .....it is an issue about non Airstream motorhomes.

Sorry for your confusion but you have nothing to worry about.

The discussion about motor homes is prompted by the fact that certain members of the Clubs leadership have decided that they would like to move up to larger more prestigious units and still remain in control of the WBCCI. Kind alike the Tucker automobile owners club being run by a bunch of Corvette owners.

Has anyone ever brought up the idea of allowing SOB's (TT &MOHO's) to be members, but they cannot hold office or vote? We all TALK of the declining membership; but????. In the process, we might obtain some REAL members.

We would clearly stand a better chance of increased membership if we got rid of those promoting this idea. The number of member that they have driven from the Club would almost all return if this issue ended.

Not sure what a REAL member is....I personally don't think the declining membership has anything to do with the MoHo issue.....ever check out how many Airforums members there are? Besides there are other organizations for SOB membership and, yes, some are my best friends. We invite them to our buddy rallies.....no big deal....friendship, camping and fun. No hard feelings and decisive voting issues.

By REAL member, I was thinking that this might get more people to buy an AS.
As for the FORUM, I believe that this makes available information that is NOT supplied by the Blue Beret. It is NOW that one steps back and provide what the membership wants, and NOT what those in charge wants. The "calendar" will be the end of the WBCCI as we know it now. We need the younger members.
I belong to each organization; the WBCCI, Air Forum and TAC and each one supplies different wants and needs..

"By REAL member, I was thinking that this might get more people to buy an AS"

- probably not. those with non-AS's will join to be part of
the fun and most [all?] will not want to pay more for an AS,
or give up the 'luxury' of their big boxes when they
can join with whatever they have now. People will buy AS's
because they want an AS.
- also, once you allow non-AS owners into the club, even as
non-voting members, sure as raisins come from grapes,
they would eventually become, frst, voting members, and then
soon thereafter, office holders.

"It is NOW that one steps back and provide what the membership wants, and NOT what those in charge wants"

- it is clear, as seen in past votes, that the non-leadership
members overwhelmingly want this to be an AS-only club.
as noted in the past: Mustang owners do not join the
Corvette club, and vice versa.

"The "calendar" will be the end of the WBCCI as we know it now. We need the younger members"

- not sure what you mean by calendar.
members will join a) if they buy an AS and b) if they feel
that they are joining a club that reflects their interests.
i'm sure there are many AS owners out there who have
not, and will not, join the wbcci as long as the current
'leadership' refuses to oncede that this is an AS club


"I belong to each organization; the WBCCI, Air Forum and TAC and each one supplies different wants and needs.."

- true, but all of them are AS oriented! i doubt that many [any?]
AS owners are members of any of the many SOB oriented
organizations.

I belong to all of the above mentioned. I also am a member of the Escapees club and a life member of Good Sam.. Also belong to Passport America but that probably wouldn't count as a club.

Each organization provides different options
