It was my understanding that a member could become an associate member if they sold their Airstream and bought an SOB, they just couldn't hold office, vote, or park with the Airstreams. I could be wrong since I'm new to the "Club".

Below is an excerpt of the qualifications of membership in WBCCI taken from the Bluebook.

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)
D. Such Regular Members shall possess all the rights and privileges of the International Club, including
the right to retain their membership number, except that those who have relinquished their
membership number and are to be reinstated as regular Members in a Unit and the International Club

Wow! I just caught up on several days of this thread. I have decided to purchase a used "Harley Davidson" edition Ford pickup so I can go to Harley events and participate. Suppose they'll care if I pull an Airstream with it? (American icons ought to stick together, right?)

Thanks streamer23, I guess I was confused about the permanent vacation home or permanent home part. So they can stay a member if they sell their Airstream as long as they don't buy and SOB that isn't permanently parked somewhere. Got it.

As long as it is their home permanently or semipermanently parked an sob is okay. Traveling in it and bringing it to rallies was a no-no. Am I correct?

So they are covered. They can motel it at the rallies instead of parking in the Gold Row.

I will look forward to doing just that once I can stop worrying that someone is going to sell my club down the river while I am out having fun.

"Why can't we all just go camping?"

It sure would be pretty cool to have all one thousand Airstreams along the shore of one of the Great Lakes. I can see the bonfire now. Actually maybe Tim could setup an Airstream Special Edition Burning Man.

And fishing, lets all go fishing too while we're there, wouldn't that be fun?!

Yet I get the impression when the WBCCI meets next at Perry they will be conducting club business and not camping at this event. So maybe we should just go back to the issue of motions and check out the rally threads for just going camping.

We have been by going to Forums rallies and avoiding the camp in a parking lot and business meetings of WBCCI events. It will be tough to write a check for WBCCI membership next fall. All this talk of letting SOBs into WBCCI is giving me indigestion.

Thumbs down The poll

I've said it before, but if I haven't said it here NO.
When I first joined WBCCI we were voting on whether or not to allow B-vans and squarestream mohos in. For all the same reasons now being used to allow SOBs, the membership voted to accept anything made by Airstream. To quote a popular politician "if I had known then what I know now I wouldn't have voted for it". So I say not again!
