Thanks! I will email them then to see if they can send me my numbers.

Wish I had known that earlier! 😕

Good to know though! Much easier and more precise.

One word of caution when preparing to install the numbers.
Do not get the backing wet before you are ready to peel the number off the backing. I dribbled water on one of my numbers and it would not peel off cleanly

Steve,
Thanks. I just ordered cling sheet type and plan to use only at Rallies etc. The window is where I'm going to put them. Squiers even said not to leave them in place permanently due to the concerns of dirt and stuff getting behind against the skin.

Put the numbers WBCCI sent you on a piece of plexiglass or a piece of wood or sign board and put them in your front window or on the ground or on a post at your campsite when attending rallies.
I stood on the tailgate of the truck to apply my numbers on the front and used a step ladder in the carport to apply the numbers to the back.
I sketched pencil marks/outlines where the letters go to line them up.
The 1's were real easy and the 8's were a real challenge.

I would much rather see them where they belong on the AS skin. Even in their current condition, they look good. From a distance. Don't get too close or you will notice they are not aligned and all the creases from the 17 times we stuck them and unstuck them to get them straight (yet we still failed). I am not concerned about sticking numbers on my AS. Those numbers will be there forever. If they fade, I will remove them and put new ones on.

My biggest gripe is that in the 21st century there are simple ways to get these numbers printed on paper backing to make installation easier. If I ordered replacements I am paying for them, so why not charge whatever it costs to have them that way? Why continue to sell individual digits in a very flimsy 3M film?

Things that make you go hmmmmmmm....

red numbers.

Many put the numbers on plexiglass but that is not the real Airstream way. It works well for rallies but not for driving down the road and seeing another member of WBCCI. Also, by having them mounted, it just might prevent your AS from being stolen as it is easier to identify.
We had ours made by a "sign guy" on 1 sheet. They are 6" high, 4" wide and 2" thick. Digits are 1" apart.

It would help if all 4 numbers were together on one backing.
Surely applying 1 thing straight and true is easier than aligning and applying 4, 5, or 6 things.
Maybe take the current numbers or trailer to a sign, decal, or print shop so they'll have the size, don't, and color to make new ones from- on a single piece of backing-
Maybe have a pro install them-

I did mine just like WBCCI said to place them. If you need new ones they cost $10 bucks for a set.Click image for larger version

I mounted mine in the window in the rear and on the plastic stone-guard in front. Glass is easy....plastic was a challenge.
We have lots of members in our unit that put up the numbers only at the rally or campground. I would rather know the AS I see on the road is actually a member, rather than just assuming it is a "baldy"
