We assume you meant Mid-Winter '09 since the Mid-Winter '08 IBT was in January '08.

I know, I have to think twice when I write the date to make sure I don't continue to write '07!

I think it was Mel Brooks on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson that asked, "Do you think the early Chirstians hit themselves on the forehead and said, 'I'm still writing the year one on my checkes'?".

Where does this motorhome amendment stand now?

I understand that this would only be offered to existing WBCCI members replacing motorhomes, but it will open a Pandora's Box to future issues.

Online Poll

I found this poll on one of the Florida Units website. Hope the Region 3 Officers get the message.

Thanks Bigdaddy 2,

I voted against the ammendment, the poll was 5% for & 95% against.

If this ever passed, it will open the door for additional problems and many members will leave the club; some units may not have enough membership to sustain an existance. I just don't understand the thinking otherwise.
The rational would serve a few select members but in the short-run, it will hurt the rest of club.

Well, the message seems to be that if you have a motorhome and want to get something newer, get a trailer or GET OUT! Okay, I get it. I've already quit the WBCCI.

Does this mean you are trading your Airstream motor home for a newer SOB motorhome?

If not, then why are you quiting the WBCCI? You are still a qualified and, as far as I am concerned, a welcomed member of the WBCCI.

But, if you have or are going to trade for a new motorhome, let's look at your logic for a moment. If you were the owner of a Mandalay and a member of their brand specific club and decided to upgrade to a new Newell or Prevost motor coach, you would have to quit the Mandalay Club, wouldn't you? Likewise, if you owned a Newell and were a member of their brand specific club and decided to downsize to a Winnebago Vectra, you would have to quit the Newell brand specific club and join the Vectra Club to be in a brand specific club.

So what is the big deal about the WBCCI? You either have an Airstream/Argosy or you don't. If you decide to end your qualifications for membership, then you no longer meet the requirements for membership and should move on at that point, but not before and not with hard feelings.

If the WBCCI does ever vote to allow SOBs to join, I would not renew my WBCCI membership. Until that time, should it happen, I will continue to belong.

Starflyte1,
Alot of members say the same thing. If this amendment goes away then the focus should be to save WBCCI.

All you have to do is check the ads in the Blue Beret...you know the official publication of the WBCCI. They have several ads that have "new" dealer inventory that ranges from unsold '06 to '07 models. Airstream quit making them because there was such a small demand for them. I guess the only folks that want a new Airstream motor home are the octogenarians on the IBT. Just don't get me started!

Think about it this way

Let's say the situation was reversed, that is, Airstream motorhome sales were great, and Airstream stopped building trailers and built just motorhomes. Does anyone think those of us with trailers would be welcome by the motorhome owners, or trailer owners for that matter, to buy another brand of trailer and remain in WBCCI?

Of course not. We would have to buy an Airstream motorhome or find another club.

I looked at the poll question:
"Should Regular WBCCI members who own a Motor Home manufactured by Airstream be allowed to purchase a Class A Motor Home manufactured by the Four Winds International Division of Thor & retain their membership in WBCCI?

and what I read is not that you can't own a newer model Airstream Motorhome and retain membership, you just can't another brand of motorhome (by Thor) and be a member of WBCCI. The question is worded kind of funky...

IMHO, I believe WBCCI represents Airstreams (mohos & trailers). Not any other brand of trailer or moho manufactured by Thor, 4-winds, passing wind, whatever...

Middle TN Airstream has a brand spanking new Airstream moho with factory discount sells for about 195K. Qualifies for WBCCI membership because it's an Airstream, and it is NEW.
