The Sierra Nevada Unit (SNU) is a small group of mostly Northern Nevada residents who own Airstream RV's and enjoy the unique camping opportunities found in Nevada Great Basin area. Most of our current members own Airstream trailers, although any Airstream RV is welcome. Several of the members trailers fit into the "Vintage" category which is any Airstream 25 or more years old.
The SNU is fortunate to have a wide variety of camping and rally sites available from high mountain lakes and fields to dry desert conditions. We are also fortunate to have numerous low cost, unstructured areas available for group camping, many within an afternoon's drive from Reno, Nevada. Check the destinations page and the rallies page to see some of the places we have been and some that could be future rally sites.
Currently the SNU rallies are weekend events running from Friday through Sunday. The Unit prefers dry camping in group areas that can accommodate from 2 to 10 or more rigs. Programming for the rallies is informal. A list of potential activities and nearby attractions is provided to encourage rally participants to make their own choices about extra-curricular activity while at the rally. We usually hold an informal business meeting on Saturday early afternoon, enjoy coffee together in the mornings, and have evening 'happy hour' and potluck dinner gatherings.
We also enjoy sharing tips and how to's on anything trailer and travel related. If you have a question or problem with your rig, there is always someone who has "been there, done that" who can provide experienced suggestions and help in solving problems.
The SNU supports the WBCCI traditions of Happy Hours and Pot Luck meals. These events provide great opportunities for socializing with fellow Airstream enthusiasts. Much of the SNU history has been lost over the past several years so now we are in the process of creating new traditions and developing a new history. The SNU website provides a repository for our history, including past rallies and other activities.
The SNU is just one local Unit of the Wally Byam Caravan Club, International. We strive to work with our neighboring units such as The Nevada Unit and Nor-Cal to provide a broader and more enriching experience for Airstream RV owners. We enjoy visiting other unit rallies and events and always welcome visitors to SNU activities.
Among our future plans, we look forward to co-hosting rallies with nearby Units, providing rallies of a different texture and focus and to assist or plan caravans in the Great Basin area as interest allows. Buddy rallies with non Airstream owners are another option for the SNU unit.
