About the Units of Region 2

Join the 16 Units of Region 2 as they enjoy fun, friendship and, of course, food as they Airstream across the country!

Al-Mon-O Unit –  Our name includes reference to the ALlegheny, MONongahela and Ohio rivers.  Chartered in 1972, we are a group of people who love to travel, have fun, own Airstream products, and for the most part live in Western Pennsylvania.  We have a diverse membership  and we all  enjoy traveling to new places, gathering together and participating in rallies, luncheons, and caravans.

For Al-Mon-O members  who stay north for the ‘off-season’, and any WBCCI members who want to join us, we hold  monthly luncheons and our Installation event each December.  Beginning in April and ending in October/November we either host or attend camping rallies.

By joining the Al-Mon-O PA Unit, you will receive our monthly newsletter (The Point), meet some really great people, travel to interesting places and most importantly have fun.  We hope you will join us in an upcoming event to get to know what we can offer to you. You will find us to be friendly, helpful and eager to travel as often as possible to new areas.

Central Maryland Unit – CMU covers the entire state of Maryland with members from Bowie, Westminster, Lexington Park, Leonardtown, Sykesville, Annapolis, Pasadena, St. Leonard and Mt. Airy.

Delaware Valley New Jersey – “Where we eat dessert first.”

Delmarva  Unit–  The Delmarva Unit is home to members from the Delmarva Peninsula-Maryland,
Virginia, Delaware. We have young families, and the “young at heart” as well.
Our Rallies and Events are held mainly on weekends and are in the local area to
encourage those members still working. A Maintenance Rally is held in April to
clean and repair our Airstreams, and perform “community service” at the 4H Park
where the Rally is held. Special attention and activities involving children and
grandchildren can be found especially at our Trap Pond Rally in November, and
our August Rally usually held near water. Monthly Rallies and luncheons are
planned, including a special “Flamingo Fling” party at Travelers Rest RV Park in
Florida, where several of our members can be found in the winter months. Members
attending the Region Rally and International Rally caravan together to these
events. We attended the 50th Anniversary Swiss Festival Rally in Sugar Creek,
Ohio in 2012.
Our Delmarva members are not only “travelers together” but we are “very good
friends”! We invite you to join us for fun and fellowship! We would love having
you with us!

Monthly luncheons or special events are held during the colder months. Please check our schedule and come join us for fun, new friends, and fellowship.

Metropolitan New York Unit – Long Island and the New York/TriState area.  “Not the biggest, but the friendliest.”

Mid-Atlantic Unit –  In 1958, Sterling Edwards of Myersville, Maryland contacted Don Beale of Garret Park, MD and J. Logan Tontz of Abington, Maryland to see if they were interested in forming an Airstream Club. The three decided to hold an organizational meeting on October 10 – 13, 1958 at Big Meadows Campground on the Skyline Drive near Front Royal, Virginia. Sterling Edwards obtained a list of all Aristream owners in the area from the factory in Ohio. A letter was sent to each owner, telling them about the meeting and inviting their attendance. Twelve Airstream families with their trailers and several Airstreamers without trailers attended the rally. Helen Byam Schwamborn, National Secretary of the Wally Byam Caravan Club was present to explain the activities of the National and Unit Clubs. Otto Kenny and Helen Byam Schwamborn signed the Mid-Atlantic Unit Charter on October 11, 1958, recognizing the Mid-Atlantic Unit as part of the WBCCI organization.

New Jersey Unit – Most of us live in the geographical areas that include Delaware, Florida, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and one in Texas. The NJ Unit is unofficially known as “The Original New Jersey Unit.”

Pennsylvania Unit – Located at PennWood Airstream Park

Washington DC Unit -The WDCU was formed in 1998, dedicated to the enjoyment of Airstream camping for the entire family! At the time, there was no unit that had many families with small children. Tom Howarth and others, decided that a new unit was needed to accomodate Airstreamers with children. Tom happened to be in Washington D.C. at the time, and formed the Washington D.C. Unit to set it apart from the others. Charter members came from all over the northeastern U.S. and soon grew to include folks from all over the world. With many members from Canada and a few who were from other countries, we are truly an International group.

It turns out that many younger families also owned older Airstreams. Like Tom, many younger folks have purchased vintage Airstreams and have restored them for modern use. In many cases, young families could not afford to go out and buy a new Airstream, so an older unit fit better within the family budget. Repairs or refurbishing can be done as funds become available. So, the WDCU became known for being a “Vintage Airstream” group. While it is true that there are many members who own vintage units, there are also many members who own new Airstreams.

There is no special requirement for membership in the WDCU. You don’t have to have children, you don’t have to be young or old, you don’t need a vintage unit or a new Airstream. You just need to want to have fun camping! We like campfires, activities for children, and friendly conversation. If you happen to be restoring an older Airstream, we have many members who can help you by sharing valuable infomation. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. We like to keep our rally fees to a bare minimum (for the sake of the families) and we like to keep our schedule flexible. Come and join us and see for yourself!

Watchung New Jersey Unit We are a group of people who love to travel, have fun, own Airstream products, and belong to the Wally Byam Caravan Club International (W.B.C.C.I.). You’ve seen them on the road – the silver, rounded, some really shiny trailers with big red numbers on the front and back. Aside from camping, we participate annually in Community Service Activities.
Although most of our members are from New Jersey, we have members from New York and Pennsylvania, and as far away as South Carolina and Florida. We have members who: are just recently retired, are retired for a while, are working full time, have small children, and not so small children. With such diverse members, it just makes it that much more interesting.

For those members who stay north for the ‘off-season’, we have monthly luncheons and our Installation Dinner each December. Beginning in April and ending in October/November we either host or attend camping rallies.
