  1. Ok, lets say this was the national Edsel club (I just picked this randomly, I have no affiliation). Face it, they are not making anymore of these cars, and occasionally one gets destroyed or falls apart due to neglect, so there are fewer of them every year. What if someone said, "since there are fewer of us in this club, maybe we should allow other cars, like Mustangs into the club to increase membership". It's also a Ford product, and these owners have similar interests (classic cars), so what would be the problem in allowing them? Are we snobs and think our Edsel's are better than mustangs? No, just that we were founded to support Edsel owners, and allowing another model would dilute this mission. Hope this helps you understand where I'm coming from. Plus, I didn't like how this was "sold" to the membership, that we must vote yes for this change to "save" FMCA. The organization would have done just fine with small changes to benefits or dues increase. I don't usually subscribe to conspiracy theorys, but looking back, this was written on the wall, back when the website was changed to announce "under construction".
  2. I will be removing my goose eggs this weekend, and asking for a refund of my membership dues. You lost at least one member who is under 60 years old and travels with kids. The exact demographic you are hoping to attract. Enjoy Good Sam #2. Chris Guenther Formerly F3508s

    Can we get a count of the number of ballots recieved? Chris G. F3508s
  6. Register Your Tires

    This was mentioned on another thread about tires, but the info was kind of buried. When you purchase new tires, it's helpful to register your tires in case of a recall. Here is a link for the registration: https://www.tireregistration.com And here is a more detailed description of why: http://www.rvtiresafety.net/2014/12/tire-recalls-and-registration.html?m=1 Hope this is helpful.

  7. 10 Year Age Rule In RV Campgrounds

    Never had a problem yet. Have a 1989 Southwind with faded graphics which we've owned for 9 years and have yet to be turned away.
  8. Firearms

    To answer the original question, no, we do not have any weapons, except for a compound and recurve bow for one if my kids. Not knocking you folks who choose to have one (or several), just never felt the need. The most threatened we ever felt since my parents began motorhoming in the 1960s, was when a drunk homeless person tried to board our Fitzjohn coach, thinking it was a commercial bus. Our min-pin (dog), bit him on the finger, and scared him away. Chris G. F3508s
  9. Service - or Disservice?

    That's it Bill!!! If a motorhome is under warranty, they should give the owner a free loaner (same size) to use until the repairs are made! This might speed things along.
  10. Service - or Disservice?

    Here is one option, Rvservicereviews.com http://rvservicereviews.com/RVServiceMobile/Index.asp?height=640&width=360&WidthAcquired=true The information is a little hard to glean, since you have to look at each facility separately, but it's a start. Chris G. F3508s Westminster, CO.
  11. Bad Experience At A Campground

    I agree with previous posts, I looks like refunds for unused days is the exception, not the rule. Still no excuse for explaining the policy to you in a rude way. May I suggest you put a review for this park in at this site: www.rvparkreviews.com. Lots of people read these reviews, and your info might prove useful.
  12. Should FMCA Allow Towable RVs-- Vote NOW

    I agree with the previous statements about where people take their vacations. I'm 51, with wife and 16 year old son. we take 1-2 out of state vacations a year, which last about a week each, and all other getaways in the motorhome are in-state for a long weekend or two. No time to commit to a national convention (although I will check out Gillette next year and see if there is a compelling reason to go), or even a local chapter event. Chris G. F3508s
  13. Should FMCA Allow Towable RVs-- Vote NOW

    There was a survey/questionair done in the magazine, several years ago. It asked questions about type of coach, do you travel with kids, age, occupation (before retirement), average income, etc. It was used at the time to compare the current FMCA member to the membership in the 1960s,. I might still have some 2008 magazines, so I'll take a look.
  14. Should FMCA Allow Towable RVs-- Vote NOW

    I agree, same thing with the website and magazine. Usually, when asked to vote on something, I'm given the pros, and the arguments against. Not in this case. All we heard was "this must be done to save FMCA!", And This is all wonderful and positive, with no opposing viewpoint.
