While waiting to check in at Ft. Wilderness this past weekend, I noticed a Four Winds product sitting in the line near me and I wondered: If we allow all of the Four Winds Class A motor home models into the WBCCI so the septuagenarian IBT's can get new motor homes and stay in the club and in its leadership now, how long will it be before those same septuagenarians become octogenarians and can no longer handle the big Class A motor homes and want to change the constitution to allow the smaller Class C motor homes like the one sitting near me in the check-in line? After all, it was a Four Winds motor home...it was just a Class C in stead of a Class A. Wouldn't that be easier for an 80-something IBT member to handle than a great big Class A Mandalay? Won't it be just a matter of time until this is what we are debating? If we don't stop it now and make sure the IBT knows that we don't want any SOB's in the club, they will try to pull this one on us in just a few years.

Saw some great RV's at the O'hare show this last weekend. If I could get an Airstream edition sticker for a fifth wheel, maybe I would change my vote.

Why limit it to SOB motorhomes?

Just thinking.

If I had the money and the Airstream Edition sticker for a Provost, I'd consider changing my vote...only kidding.

I just happen to have a friend that is taking delivery in April of a new Prevost and he is going to let me put temporary "AS edition" decals on it for the international. I can't wait to pull up to the gate. We are also going to put a mandalay badge on my AS motorhome and see how that goes over.
What do you think?

Ahhhhhh, I do believe I detect a whiff of civil disobedience in the air. Are you and your friend really going to do this bfred? Publicity, documentation and organization are some of the key components of any good protest. That, and a really good reason to protest. Maybe you can lead a parade of motorhomes? That would be cool.

Oh if only I could be a fly on the hard sided Airstream wall!

Do post how it turns out. I'd love to see the look on the gate-keepers face when you pull up in that one.

Yes, we are serious about this. My friend also loves a good fight. He has to take his prevost to FL. a week after the international, so it works out.

Is there anyway you could get the media involved? It would be really great if there could be news crews there when you arrive to show the reaction of the WBCCI when you arrive and whether they let you guys in or not. You could let the media know it is a protest. That would whet their appetites.

Lets keep this a family squabble. I'd hate to air Club laundry. Makes us look bad.

Yes, I agree. But, it might send a message to the IBT loud and clear that this is not going to be something they can slip by us. I just wish we were going to be there. I bet this issue will make the re-naming seem like a simple difference of opinion.

Airstream says, hey we are loosing money here, people want AS trailers so we are going to stop making MH. Good 'Ol Boys, Boo Hoo Hoo .

So what do they do, lets brand SOB as an Airstream, NOT, and all will be right again.

Is that what I'm reading?
I am taking great offence to this statement!! I AM NOT A GOOD OLD BOY NOR DO I THINK I AM BETTER THAN ANY ONE IN A SILVER TWINKIE!! A lot of some people here think this crap.I joined the A/S forum to gey info. not to belittle any other owner of a A/S product. with this kind of mentality is why I don't go to rallies. I enjoy camping but not with complainers like this.SO take your Boo Hoo Hoo and stick it where the son don't shine.
