Fredericksburg.com reported that the 62nd Wally Byam Caravan Club International Rally made its way to Caroline County for the first time this past weekend, bringing more than 700 Airstream campers and their owners from throughout the United States and Canada. The “Enjoy the Ride” rally is expected to draw about 1,500 people by the time the parades, seminars, tours, food, music and good fellowship end Saturday.
Also known as the Wally Byam Airstream Club and The Airstream Club International, the Caravan Club it is one of the nation’s oldest RV owners associations, with members in the U.S., Canada, Australia and Europe.
Chris VanBuskirk, of Silver City, N.M., is a member of the Vintage Airstream Club, which requires members to own an Airstream at least 25 years old.
“We are a tight group that loves to ‘Airstream’ together,” said VanBuskirk, who was seated under a large tent with other group members, enjoying the daily Happy Hour.
Airstream crowds are not limited to a specific age group, even though most rally-goers are retired.
