Just wanted to amplify upon Carol's answer a little.
Back in 2004 the club took a member survey and one of the questions asked was, "should we allow other brands of RVs into the club?"
Well, WBCCI has been "the Airstream
RV association" for its entire life, and 75% of the members answered either "no
" or "h*ll no
". (Although the survey responses weren't worded quite
Then, you need to be aware that although 87% of WBCCI members tow trailers, a disproportionate percentage of the International Officers drive motor homes.
So, when Airstream decided to stop making Class A motor homes, the only solution was to allow other brands of motor homes into the club, right? The officers tried to sell the idea for a year--and didn't allow any other opinion in the Blue Beret--but the constitutional amendment still went down by a 2/3 vote.
But that's not the end of the story. I suspect that a good bit of the venom behind the current program to purge the club of "undesirable" members by means of the grievance process stems from the MoHo debacle.
So by all means hang onto your classic motor home--they're neat! And no reason to drop out of the WBCCI, because, 3 Dog, you don't have a dog in that fight.
