Hi,

My wife and I recently purchased a Type B (Intervec Falcon 190) and while we belong to a chapter, it would be nice to camp with people our own size once in a while. I am aware of the Roadtrek chapter, but we don't have a Roadtrek. Are there other Bs in the New England Area?

Ben,
Here on the FMCA Web site, on the home page click on Chapters and go to "Northeast Area". There you will find all of the Chapter in the NE. Take a look at them and you might find a Class B Chapter and if not go and start one.

Good Luck

Hi Ben,

In the Northeast Area we do not presently have a Class B chapter. There are several chapters who have members with Class B motorhomes especially now as many longtime members are downsizing. You will find that you would be welcomed into them.

If you would be interested in forming a class B chapter I would be happy to assist you. Please feel free to contact me at diplomatman2002@yahoo.com

Paul,

Thanks for reaching out on this. I don't have many folks I know that camp in Bs. I was hoping to find a group of people with similar motorhomes so that we may learn from each other. I have reached out to a couple of other chapters through the information request tool and would like to visit with them and see if they would be a good fit.

HI,
I would also like to find a Class B group that will accept off brand "B".


In June of 2012 I purchased a 2008 Krystall MH on a 2500 Sprinter chassis. The manufacturer is out of business and I would like to be able to exchange information.


I live in Southern California and it would be nice to get together 3 or 4 times a year with other Class B owners.

As a result of "harrysusa" post in another FORUM and "Bebfrench" post ... I'm thinking that maybe we can start our own CLASS B club. I have had this on my mind for some time now and have in fact purchased a domain name called: CAN-AM CLASS B RV CLUB. It's just a name right at the moment but since we have Class B owners from both Canada and the US it might be something worth following up on. Any other thoughts would be appreciated.

 

I also noticed that there is an informal group of Class B owners from RV.NET that have been hosting a Class B RV Rally for the past 9 years. Their 10th is scheduled for May 16-19 this year in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I'm going and though that I would run it by the members there as well.

 

Information on their rally is located at: http://www.military-...0/B-10_MI.html#

 

I think it would be nice to be able to travel with and meet other Class B owners. Although i know we are welcome to other rallies and events ... I don't have a whole lot in common with a 40 foot Class A.

 

If anyone would like to contact me please feel free to do so at: kaskeland@icloud.com

 

We can certainly talk about it and go from there. Nothing ventured ... nothing gained.

Karsty....

 

Funny you should bring this topic up as I have suggested to a manufacturer of CLASS B mothorhomes, (Advanced-RV) out of Ohio to do just that.  The owner is Mike Neundorfer and their web site is www.Advanced-RV.com.  They build a great CLASS B for owners that are downsizing out of those 40 foot CLASS A's you refer to.  He welcomes and encourages CLASS B owners to contact him with suggestions and comments.  Don't let up as your idea is a super one that should not be allowed to fizzle out.

Hello, Type B fans!

 

I'm the owner of an Airstream 190 type-B coach, and I did an experimetnal survey amongst the type-B members at the Madison, Wisconsin convention.  It seems that we in our coach community are interested in a Chapter of our own, and yet the ways and times we travel in our coaches varies much more than in owners of the "big rigs".  The simple fact that I am still in the "working world" means that I can't attend all of the conventions and area rallies I would like.

 

Perhaps, one way to form a chapter would be to set up a "community" of type-B owners in each FMCA geographic area, and then have a pool of members in that area serve as the Chapter Officers for a term.  The Officers would answer to the membership via online feedback to a Web site or social-network page.  After their term, members from another area would fulfil the next term.
