Noobie -Airstream Club Intl

Recently purchased a new Airstream and received an invite to Airstream Club Int'l. We like the idea since we are new to RVing.

Also suggests a local in Region 2 (we live by the jersey shore).

Is it a good idea to join both or just one??

thank you in advance.

Joining a local club makes you a member of the international club. As a member of the club you can attend local, regional and national events. Having been a member for 15 years, I would highly recommend membership. We have attended rallies all over North America and have been on numerous national caravans.

And to pick up Richard's post, you should also be aware that you can join any unit you want to. Of course, joining a unit that is in your geographic backyard is nice, yet my unit has quite a few folks who don't live in our stomping grounds. Importantly, every unit has such a different personality. Nobody would dream of forcing you to belong to a unit that you don't like.

Congrats on the new Airstream. The Watchung NJ Airstream Club is an active camping club with members from all over NJ and eastern PA. We live down in Ocean County and have been members for 10 yrs. Please feel free to reach out to me with questions and check out their website for more info.

I’ve learned the most about my Airstream, at rallies. These rallies are put on by Airstream Club members.

Recommendation to join the International club best thing we ever did. Owning an Airsteam is wonderful. But the Real Silver Lining is the people we’re met on the journey. We were newbies in 2016. We have made wonderful friends and learned how to airstream travel with ease. A wealth of information, kindness . The Airstream community amazing people. We have learned so much. Where to stay and how to negotiate traveling throughout our beautiful country. Priceless !!!!!

One of the best advantages of the club is that at a rally or on a caravan you finally have the chance to meet a group of friends that you have not had the priveledge of meeting before.

Joining Airstream Club

We joined as newbies eight years ago somewhat sceptical. Best thing we've done as Airstreamers ! We learned about our rig and it's many intricacies from those that have "been there, done that", gathered incredible information about travelling to various destinations, how to get there, what to do and NOT DO.
Also, if you join a unit you automatically become a member of a Region. It's only a yearly membership. I would definitely recommend you give it a try.

The Airstream membership benefits I've enjoyed over the years have been the Blue Beret magazine, signing up for awesome caravans, and recognizing and being recognized because of the big red numbers.
At a minimum, consider attending the international Airstream rally in Lebanon, TN this coming July. You will be immersed in all things Airstream, meet some great people, attend workshops, get questions answered, and probably find out more about why becoming an Airstream member is a good idea. Welcome aboard.

Less than $100 to join both. IMO, your closest relationships will be with those who belong and participate in a local group, and you’ll learn the most from them as well.

join 2 ?

For me, the cult is the best part of the Airstream. BTW you have the best advice, join your local club. You will meet some new friends. In case you don't know, you can join more than one local club. You might want to join a club where you like to travel. We joined a TX club to camp with during the winter.

You can't join a local club without joining the Airstream Club Int'l.

You might as well join a local club also since there is a fee you have to pay for not joining a local club which is as much or more then the fee most local clubs charge.

Hi, I'm thinking of joining as well but we are full time and don't have a real home base. Is there a "local" club that full timers join?

There is "the" club, Airstream Club International also referred to as WBCCI (Wally Byum Caravann Club International) they recently went thru a name update.

You join it, pay anually dues and can choose to be a member of a local group or an affiliate member of many groups. Each local group is based on a region based on the part of the countries they are located in.

As an example. We live in Arizona which is part of region 11. Region 11 has several unit's in our geographic area and we belong to one of two great Unit's in AZ, the Four Corners Unit.

We can partake in out unit's group activities or join other unit's in other states in their activities or rally's.

In addition to Club dues we pay unit dues. We find it fun and a nice way of meeting other Airstreamers. Our unit is know for casual conversation between diverse folks of all ages by camping, potlucks, happy hours and campfires.

It's only a year commitment give it a try.

catesword - join as a "Member at Large" which will not tie you to any individual club.

The web site doesn't seem to let you join unless you pick a local club.
