WBCCI MOHO Poll

Simple poll for all WBCCI members AND prospective members.

You have heard the news that the WBCCI leadership is discussing the possibility of re-badging a THOR Class "A" motorhome as an Airstream. You can find details about this issue on these forums and at WBCCI's own web site (as well as SaveWally.org). Do you support the WBCCI's current plans to rebadge an SOB Class "A" motor home as an Airstream product.

A simple Yes or No will do. This is not a scientific poll, just an informal one.

I agree, even though I'm not a member, I think it's just plain foolish to have an Airstream club with mock Airstreams in it. Of course, I say this from the sidelines which doesn't carry much weight behind it.

OK, here is a quick look at it the way I see it right now.

WBCCI not so long ago said that AS MH were not allowed in the WBCCI. Long at last they were allowed as members. The Good 'Ol Boys buy them so they can show they are better than us, travel easier or what have you. Life is good. 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?

You got it, the plan is to take units manufactured by Damon and Four Winds and put a silver metallic base color on it with other colors for graphics.

All selected models would remain "branded as they are now" (as in Mandalay) but would be labeled "Airstream Edition". The interior would be identical to the original models. These units would be sold and serviced by their manufacturer (not by Airstream). The units would be priced "slightly higher" than the non "Airstream Edition" versions.

I'll have more on THIS topic later....

Let me see if I have this right. rickandsandi thinks that because I have a motorhome I feel that I am better than others. I have been a member of WBCCI for 10 years and have never been told that I am an elitist. Being a retired truck-driver from Ky.just the opposite. I think that hurtfull in-general comments will do more to destroy this club than allowing Mandalay MH in.

Why would anyone waste time watching humorous but fictional episodes on a TV sitcom when they can tune in here to the real absurdities of the WBCCI?

Oh well, I thought this year we'd be able to work on building membership. But now it looks like we will be mobilizing the masses to defeat this proposal.
