Rallying with SOB's?

Okay here's the problem. A dear friend who I have been camping with for years recently purchased *gasp* a small SOB. It was a financial decision and I'm sure she would have LOVED to get an Airstream but it just wasn't in the cards. It would be nice if she could occasionally attend a Rally with me (and meet all the great forum folks) and still bring her own vehicle.

What is the "policy" on this? Does she have to leave her SOB at home in order to come along? Would she camp somewhere near the cluster of silver but not too close? I know it's an Airstream Rally but...

Thoughts???

It's not like we would catch something from her...
It may be a good way to convert her.

Have a non Rally Rally I camp with a wide range of folks. There is one camping group that I belong to that started out as SEPUC South East Pop Up Campers. Wanna guess what was at the last campout? I think the rules are up to the individual group. I would not expect to take an SOB to a rally organized by Airstreamers unless it was a Buddy Rally of some sort. I suspect the Forum rallies maybe a bit less straight laced. I have a group of friends that I camp with a couple of times a year, the current collection of campers ranges from a Condo Tent to a $75k fifth wheel with everything and anything in between.

At a Forums Rally, it would usually be fine as these rallys are usually held at public campgrounds that are open to everyone. This would not be the case at WBCCI rallys where this would be a giant "fox paw" unless you're talking about a moho made by Thor some other company that Thor may purchase in the future.

If it's a Forums rally, bring 'em along, just ask them to sign up here first. That way, it'll be all nice and legal, as we don't force anyone to own an Airstream product (although it's nice).

I love to gawk private docks at marinas. Anybody asks, I can easily present myself as a potential customer -- 'cept I haven't found an aluminum sailboat I like. WBCCI has rules; Forums rallies don't. I invited friends shopping for Airstreams to bring their popup to the Midwest rally -- they can't make it. We have another member here who is bringing his SOB to the Midwest rally. Enforcing rules or quarantining interested lookers not only spoils the fun, but it's too much work!

Ask your President

Ask your unit president when the unit is having a buddy rally. During these rallies you can bring a friend (and their SOB trailer).

Yes, make it a Buddy Rally. Then everyone can attend and maybe even be persuaded to come to the 'silver' side!

I karma-tized Swanny for replying with a good WBCCI solution in a level headed manner -- he didn't even point out my ignorance. We're all a bunch of half blind aluminum polishers sometimes -- sorry (no, won't apologize to Don Imus for calling myself a name). Sounds like a good solution. Airstream tours at any rally are a great way to spread the excitement.

SOB's Welcome

I have a friend with a SOB and he is about to attend his 4th Airstream Rally! He is even bringing his brother-in-law with his SOB to the next one!

No, they would have to join the WBCCI first, then invest the umpteen million years it takes to work their way up the IBT ladder to become a member of the privileged IBT elite class before they could own an SOB and attend a WBCCI rally.

Seriously, our first and only forum rally so far (where we had an Airstream to stay in) had one of its attendees staying in an SOB because she didn't want to tow her vintage Airstream that far and she got a little ribbing for showing up at an Airstream Forum Rally without her Airstream (mostly from me, BTW) and she was more than welcomed. You should remember moosetags, it was the Can Opener Rally and you were there!

On edit, speak of the devil Kathy, you posted while I was writing this response!

Isn't it always "a friend" that does this.

Rallying with SOB'S

I agree that it can't hurt anything to have someone want to join in the fun of one of our rally's. Not everyone can own an Airstream! I say let em come and have fun!!!

Are you asking about a WBCCI or a Forum Rally?

WBCCI it needs to be a buddy rally for an SOB to attend.

Forum Rally I don't think it would be an issue but you might want to toss it onto that rallies thread before she signs up.
