I remember being younger and concerned about being able to share times with folks our age and hoping they had kids too. It was always great when we went places where folks also had kids... made it more fun for everyone. We used to do a lot of sailing and when our son was younger he liked it for awhile... but being out at sea for hours on end... he liked to do things with other kids part of the time. So, we joined a club that had a youth group...it worked great. We all got to sail, and he met some great kids! He is grown now, and was best man at one of his "little" sailing buddies wedding!

Anyway, the point is understood by those of us who have been there, done that! Sometimes when we are retired we forget you can't make rallys on Thursdays, or stay an extra day... oops, you got to go to work!

One of the great things we have noticed is many of the rallys we have been to have had a wide variety of ages. Makes it very interesting! Everyone has things to share. Besides when with younger folks, we don't just sit around and share stories about our ailments and latest medical procedures! We get to talk airstream!

Good luck and have fun!

Is your A/S bigger on the inside then it is on the outside?

I was reading this thread in hopes to find other young couples our age.
I am now 33, he's 39. We got the airtream when I was 24.
Our challenge is we belong to a coast-to-coast campground where we keep our trailer. Since we live with my husband's dad, going to the trailer seems to be the only dwelling my husband I can be kinda alone.
Fortunately for us, my mom and her husband own a park model trailer in the same campground. They have tried to talk us into selling our lot and moving closer to them. We love our parents, but we want our own space.
At our campground, we don't have any friends. Just parents, grand-parent, and a few great-auntie's who have lots there. When we started out, we made friends with folks on our street. And now they've either stopped coming up to camp, or in poor health, or unfortunately passed away.
As far as membership with WBCCI, I just don't see it being something our family would enjoy doing. My reason: I had bought a watched an older vhs short film- Silver Palace. Sure some here have seen it. During the part of the film where the woman was upset that B-Vans were excluded from membership, just left me with a bad impression that any rv enthusiast would be excluded from that type of group.

I love what I've read here, the forum is fun as are the people. Interesting, insightful, and care-free, down to earth folks.

Now I need to find a thread or start one on "how to do repairs or renovations with a limited or low budget".

Thanks!
Lilmouse

SM-

You need to move to the east coast! Many WBCCI Units have realized the core of their units changing. The New England Unit has a fantastic mix of members from owners of airstream still in their teens to MOHO members in their 70's. Not a month goes by that there is not an event or rally of some type. Most often several a month. Events are mixed and varied offering every member the opportunity to involved. We have weekend rallies for the working family members with activities for kids and those without kids, contests, themed rallies, you name it we are doing it. Check out our schedule at:

WBCCI New England Unit Airstream Club

I am positive there are other Units out there with the same strong membership and understanding of it's members.

This is a good thread dude !!

The wife & I are just rounding the bend (50yrs) & we are often referred to as "the kids" when we go to events.

Don't worry though...age will catch up with you.

This is one reason why we have a sailboat...it's a younger crowd !!

My wife and I are in our early (her) to mid (me) 40's. We have two sons ages 7 & 10. We bought our Airstream last May after two years of planning and we are loving it. We wish our local WBCCI unit had younger members but there are some with children and some that bring their grandchildren. Unfortunately, we have to work and can't do the 5 day rallies so we will just have to show up on Saturday and leave on Sunday...with a unit with over 200 members (so we were told) we wouldn't get prime camping sites at the rallies so we probably won't do too many.

Just about to leave the 20-30 crowd.. ..with 4 kids, 2-12.
We attend Rallies with our unit and are the youngest there. So what, it is like a big grandparents party for the kids! A good unit will work with you.

I have been authorized by the Boss to release my age only - I am a young 45. You are as young as you feel - the 50's are todays 30's the way people are taking care of themselves.
