From my perspective, the beginning of the down turn for the VAC began with the shafting of Rob Baker prior to the Madison International.

At the same time... the shafting of the general membership by the IBT is what is causing many folks to leave the larger club... thus being forced to leave the VAC.

3 or 4 issues of the Tim and Kimber's Vintage Advantage are well worth the $20 membership fee... but folks like me can't be a VAC member without belonging to the larger club and folks like me don't care to belong to that club as it is being currently run.

Tough bind to be in for the VAC but I guess it comes with the territory when you, as an organization, are subservient to a group of dictators.

I continue to hope for a better future for my friends still involved.

Could the VAC exist on its own, or does the WBCCI "own" it? What I mean is, could they split off without have in the WBCCI approve it?

They could, but there would be some "divorce proceedings" before it would ever be finalized.

Below are just two of the many related threads that lend some insight into the relationship as well.

The VAC could, but it would take more volunteers than the VAC currently has. Anyone want to step up and volunteer? The VAC is looking for several region reps and a 3rd VP.

They would have to come up with their own liability insurance, I bet.

Not really that big a deal. Might have to increase the dues from $20 to $25 a year to cover it.

hate to bring up an old thread here, but i just paid my $20 to read a story in a back issue of the vantage. Kinda bummed to find all 2010 - 2012 issues missing (except 1) from the website ( i did email webmaster). It seems like the newsletter is the attractive part for many folks who replied on this thread. I cannot be a member b/c i am not a WBCCI member and won't be anytime soon.

So, i hope you keep publishing the newsletters, and i would keep paying to get them. If you publish 4 that's just $5 per newsletter which seems reasonable.

VAC Membership Chair here. Just to let people know, you can just be a subscriber to the Vintage Advantage which comes out at least twice a year and worth the $20.00. check out our web site. Beautiful coffee table magazine. Members of the WBCCI and Vac not only get the Magazine but also an e-mail newsletter, Vintage rallies, Wagon Wheel Caravan along with knowing your Vintage trailer belongs to a club that traveled around the world, and from Cape Town to Cario. It's the heritage and the history of this club that many vintage owner feel is the finishing touch to their Airstreams. Our trailer has been a member of the WBCCI 1 month before it was built in Santa Fee Springs California in 1967 and we are proud that she still wears her bright red numbers.
Those big red numbers gives a Vintage Trailer a history, it went places, maybe not to Africia but across the US, Canada or down into Mexico on
adventures.
Both the WBCCI and the VAC are moving forward but not forgetting our heritage as the oldest single brand RV club. You can join on-line at the wbcci website.

Hello. I just stumbled across this thread and was wondering how I can find out the history of our '56 Bubble? I believe the numbers are 4235 -- they are ghost numbers now.

Thank you.

Deb
