Shane,
also a while back i seen on a post that someone had the numbers put on a really large magnet that they would not have to put the stickers on their camper. I think that was a cool idea....and thought about doing that to mine this year with my numbers but........???? on the rejoining membership.

You can have mine. I don't stick anything on my Airstreams. Just rearrange the numbers.

Your trailer. Your numbers. Your right.

I'd be tempted to figure out what the IPs numbers are and place those on my rig. Not hard to figure, just not worth the effort to me.

You could apply red letters instead. It would open a whole realm of possibilities.

That only works on the Argosy...Shane has an aluminum Airstream...

Don't get how this could possibly be illegal. The most the WBCCI could do would be send you a polite letter and hope you comply. They certainly couldn't threaten you with any kind of copyright or trade dress infringement. Its a set of numbers, not someone's (who shall not be named) name.

It would be like if I wanted to copyright the price of a grapefruit.

If they were protected, wouldn't you need to remove them before transferring the trailer to some other party?

Go ahead and do it. Pick a good number.

With all the unpleasant comments made about the group who use red numbers(you know who),, why would you want it to look like you belong to them?

Puleeze! Illeagal? No way. Our 1954 California Cruiser has the ghosted numbers 128! We bought a 2nd membership in WBCCI just so we could get #11281. But, being as we are getting kicked out, that 11281 will just become 128. We are preserving the history of the trailer which is far more interesting to us.

Go ahead - put numbers on it and when someone asks you what they mean, you can make up your own story or talk about the history of the trailer and where it has been if you can find that out.

Just don't use numbers like 70496. That one's someone's intellectual property, from what I understand.

Illegal number - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In certain quarters C&Ds are considered a source of pride. Some of my friends collect them.

In the beginning I didn't know what the numbers ment. I lovedd the look. Kinda reminded me of an old airplane of sorts. I like the look. I called the Wbcci last week and the four digit number I want is taken. So I thought I'd get opinions....

If they "took" I don't see why you can't "took" it too, in fact why don't you tell us what it is and we could all "took" it. That may keep 'em busy for awhile.
