Yes, my experience is that Airstreamers are great! Our first rally we had a 1946 Kit teardrop trailer and we were welcome. You might want to warn the person. We now have the teardrop and 2 Airstreams.

I've had several SOBs. Each one better than the next. Now I have the best.....an AS. I would have loved it to have been asked into an Airstream group. Maybe I would not have taken so long to get my own AS.

All kidding aside, we decided on an Airstream and I found this forum in the process of deciding. I also found that there was going to be a forum rally in north Georgia in the fall of that year. I asked if we could attend for the afternoon and potluck sans Airstream and was welcomed by all that was there. We had a great time and attended another the following spring. We missed a couple before we actually bought our Airstream and the first that was scheduled after we bought it because of a family conflict, but we attended the very next forum rally in the south (Can Opener Rally) and had a great time seeing most of the same folks from the first two rallies we had attended.

You make friends at these forum rallies that stick with you even though you may not see them for over a year or you may see three or four months later at the next forum rally in your region.

Encourage your friend to come to the rally and have her/him make new friends and she/he will want to attend the next rallies they have. Who knows, she/he may even attend some that you can't make it to. If the folks that organize that rally don't maker her/him feel completely welcome, then shame on them! You might want to find a new forum rally to attend the next time. I truly believe that won't be the case, though.

I was talking about a Forums Rally and not a WBCCI Rally. The WBCCI Rallies do tend to be more formally "organized" and probably less appropriate for a non Airstream Rallier, even as a "buddy".

It's good to hear that most people would be welcoming. Forum Rallies are pretty flexible and fun. I know I always feel "the more the merrier".

The problem really would be for the SOB. They might feel like they are wearing shorts to a formal event!

You could give them a can of silver spray paint . Okay, maybe not. We have relatives and friends that own SOB's. We make sure to invite them to all activities, and plan functions at their coaches so they don't feel "left out", or shunned. Pot luck at one, movie night at another, etc. The movie idea is great, there's nothing like the flat white side of an SOB to show a movie on.

Forums rally sure, formal or WBCCI rally, doubt it, but even if she did tag along, depending on the unit, lots of cold stares, etc...unless she is driving a rebadged class A!

Bring her to Cazini

Laurel, I read your post and see your friend is a female. Kind of makes me think of new meaning for SOB. Maybe something like Sexy Ole Babe, in which case she would be welcome anywhere. see you in 2 weeks! Tim

Airstream tours at any rally are a great way to spread the excitement.
During a recent buddy rally we ALMOST converted two of our family friends. They were looking to purchase a MOHO from another member who was selling and just couldn't make it past the bank. Regardless...it was a great time by all and my friends still talk about "those cool Airstream friends."

Hooray Beer!

Forums rally? Why should we descriminate? WBCCI Rally? usually a problem. Let her come and see how much fun we have. Look at it as a future sale of an Airstream. ;-)

It's not a problem, really. Even though I know you poor people can't afford paint for your trailers, the rest of us won't descriminate against that "galvanized sheetmetal shed" look.

Not a problem, but she'll need a Peep and to know the secret handshake. Hopefully, we'll meet her at Casini.

I'd much rather that the young couple in the tent remembered the folks in the silver trailer that invited them over for dinner when it was raining so hard.
Thanks,

Thanks Mike! well said.

Great idea, reduced distortion and good reflectivity. SOB's are useful!

Bam, if she's a friend of yours and likes to camp, she has all the credentials she needs for the Casini rally. Just bring plenty of tin foil!
It's the spirit that counts, not the vessel.

Unfortunately she (the proud SOB owner) has to work (horrors!) that weekend so won't be joining us at Casini. But I'm sure she'll be joing us sometime soon since you are all so welcoming.

My 2 cents worth,

We have friends and family that own SOB's and we all camp out together and have a lot of fun.

I would welcome anyone who came to a rally with open arms. After all, isn't the idea to share information and have fun. We can all learn from each other, and who knows, they may convert to A/S owners.
