There is another idea. You can have your numbers made to a smaller size by a sign shop and apply them to your bumper and LPG cover. Still quite visible to find you in an emergency, will not leave a ghost image, and make you different from the crowd so they will talk about you at events. Pat

I just read an article on caravans. Of the first 7 A$, 6 did NOT have the "big red " numbers displayed.
I was able to get the same numbers for both WBCCI and Air Forum. Instead of having 2 sets of numbers, I went to the local sign shop and had the numbers made from "Old Glory" stock. The numbers are on one piece of vinyl.

Numbers Placed

It seemed as though when I had time to install the numbers we had a chance of thunderstorms which I thought would not be good. I would have hated to see them washed away before they dry!

After several rearrangements and the blessing of my DW they are now in place. The spacing is a bit tricky. One would think that they should be evenly spaced but that just didn't look "right" when I had them laid out that way.

I placed the WBAC sticker on the window. Just made more sense to me.

Thanks for everyone's suggestions.

Those look great Hans627. Nice spacing. I've moved the new round WBAC decal to the side instead of on top so it can be seen easier. I like it there, like on your window.

We left the round WBCCI emblem off of the Classic. We only installed the numbers when we went to the International event in 20

We also put the numbers on two plexiglas sheets that have removable suction cups for the 23D. We store the two plexiglas sheets under the mattress and the suction cups in a bag.

The Club wants to move to custom number sheets for members. Better service for members because numbers will already be arrayed on an application sheet. And did I worry I was putting on my numbers in the right order? Won't be a problem either.

We're working on this and expect to work out all details in several months. Thanks for the good idea!

Just be careful - I know this from personal experience. I purchased a vinyl cling sheet with my numbers on it and left it on for a full season. It created some sort of blemish/corrosion underneath the clear coat that the factory could not fix. It's not the me of the world, but it did damage the aluminum. Perhaps putting it on only when needed (e.g., at a rally/on a caravan) and taking off otherwise is a good practice. Or apply tot he window and not the aluminum itself.

I didn't mind the application process for our numbers. One thing I did was to cut out the exact shape of the number before aligning & marking on the trailer. Having the backing material cut with the numbers would save that step, but that wasn't too much of an ordeal, either.

I'm picky about kerning (the space between letters/numbers), so I appreciate having the ability to line things up just the way I want them. I'm a designer by trade, so I'm into those kinds of things. I can understand how some people would rather stick numbers on quickly & easily, so they can focus on other things in life that they enjoy.
