Geez, if I'm lucky, I could conceivably reach the age of my s/n (71 73) on my trailer, two times. If I'm lucky. Real lucky and I'd also have to quit telling those horrible jokes around my wife. One of these days she's going to get tired of those stale old jokes I keep thinking are funny and become a wealthy widow.

When we bought our used AS, a PO'ers numbers ended in '666'...perhaps they had been excommunicated...

My WBCCI number is also my zip code ... Punxsutawney, 15767. That way I can always find my way back home (not that I always want to....). If I leave, or get kicked out of the club, my number is ALWAYS valid !! (unless I move!)

I just noticed my former numbers have NOTHING to do with me at all. No coincidence there...

36 24 36? Tom... is this meant to be a disguised Valentine's Day compliment for the person "sitting next to you?"

No, it was just an observation. :

Hmmm ...

MY numbers match several of the page numbers in the last 3 Dan Brown novels

Just cause you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not after you!

I don't know who Dan Brown is, but the trim on my house is brown!

My best friend in high school went on to work for the CIA and he still is working for them. I know he's been watching me for decades. I wonder if the trim on his house is brown!

Hi, I don't have any red numbers on my trailer; Maybe, because my phone number and home address is un-listed.

I never knew this. I picked my numbers to hassle my dad - I put a "1" in front of his WBCCI number. I originally was hoping to get "their number minus 1", but it wasn't available.

The more cynical part of me says they do that instead of just picking the lowest available number so that it looks like WBCCI has more members.

We managed to break the upper windshield on the B-van and had it replaced recently. So no more numbers on my camper. (I never got around to installing them on the back, but they were on the glass in front.)

I haven't installed my numbers (which don't match my address, phone, SS#, or anything I can think of) on either of my trailers. Although I have received plenty of advice on how to properly install them at an International, and a Regional Rally a couple years ago, I probably won't ever. I do have some on Plexiglas, should the need arise.

I see a very clear and deliberate pattern there Silver Ranger... You have a twenty "four" footer, an oh "five", a sixty "eight", and you own two trailers. I cannot believe you never realized this. 4582 makes sense to me...

My first and only region 8 rally I was informed by a group from Kansas that next time they see me, I better have my numbers on my trailer. Of course they never saw me again!

What??? there's a certain way they have to be up. Is it so and so inches above or below some point and so and so inches apart.

When and if I get around to putting mine on. ( there are old numbers still on there) I will put them on as I please.

I'm thinking about putting the ones on the front backwards so If I forget my phone # I can just look in the rear view mirror.

And If anyone complains I will be sure to camp next to them with my New twin girls and keep them up all night.
