How do I Become a member of airstream club australia?
We are not a large club so, at this stage, we don't have any requirements for you to join our rallies. The majority of club members are in Victoria.
We welcome anyone that owns an Airstream to join us for our super fun, social weekends! Just keep your eye on our Upcoming Events, follow the club's instagram account (@airstreamclubaustralia) and like our Facebook page to keep up to date.
Can I host my own Airstream Rally?
If you own an Airstream, live outside of VIC and cannot make it to the scheduled rallies, you can always host your own! Plan your dates and location, and send an email to Jessie at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will put the details of your meet-up on this website and post about it on the club's social media. It would be a great opportunity for you to start networking with your own Airstream community!
I WANT TO IMPORT AN AIRSTREAM INTO AUSTRALIA. WILL I NEED TO MOVE THE DOOR?
This will depend upon where you live in Australia and how old your caravan is.
Every state is different so you will need to contact the relevant authority for your state (e.g. VicRoads in Victoria, RTA in New South Wales) before your consider importing. Ring the Head Office and ask to speak to someone about registering a caravan that pre-dates the introduction of the Australian Design Rules. The cut-off dates vary for each state but if your caravan is pre-1969 you *should* (in theory) be exempt from moving the door Australia-wide.
Is it difficult to register a vintage Airstream in australia?
Please ring your local road authority to ask about the registration process relevant to your State. Some things you may need to consider are moving the caravan door (see above answer) and external light requirements (e.g. brake lights, indicator lights).
I'm not a club member, can i attend a rally?
Yes! If you don't own an Airstream you are still more than welcome to drop in and chat with us at our rallies! We'll even show you through our silver babies :) Take a look at our Upcoming Events to see if we'll be gathering near you!
Can I advertise my Airstream business on the 'Hire' page?
Yes! You need to be an active member of the club by attending at least one rally. If you are unable to attend the scheduled rallies, see note regarding hosting your own rally above!
