Mary, our unit went round and round on this topic at our spring rally meeting. We had a few stand up and say if it isn't like ours we shouldn't let them in. They don't want those other Airstreams coming to their rallys dumping their wastes on the ground......(sure I remember I always dumped my porta potti on the ground when I had my pop up trailer
.....give me a break.:
A few others stood up and noted 1. Early Airstreams weren't total self contained. Yet we let them in today. 2. Remember those short sighted individuals who blocked Argosy's and motor homes?
Most of us said if the unit is tied to Airstream, based on name or production, then they should be allowed to join. No further questions. Anything short of that is a repeat of the Argosy/motorhome snobbishness.
Our unit voted to allow any Airstream product in, regardless of the self contained clause. Those folks buying this new generation of Airstream will be the future twinkie owners anyway. Turn them away now, they'll never come back even once they own the "approved" Airstream and the organization will continue to wither on the vine.
