Now I'm thinking of having my own numbers made (using a different number and a different color - like green). That way I get the anti-theft benefit without exposing to the world that I'm not home ....

When our numbers fall off, I'll probably have some new ones made, too. Somewhat shorter ones. The current ones only barely fit into the space on the back of the rig.

back in '77 when I was 16 and my family got our first Airstream. Everyone had their numbers on their trailer. only noticed in the last what? 15years suddenly alot of people don't want them on and wonder why? I personally use a wet towel and iron to soften and simply peel off the numbers, others use a hairdryer, has no effect on the clearcoat. I guess I'm like the vintage people, airstream doesn't look right without them!
fyi, started with my family's 77, then a '96, an '04, and now back to a '77!

Sorry if I'm sounding kinda THICK here but if they are your WBCCI numbers on your trailer in any color they will still be in a membership book right?

You are in the membership book if you renew before November 1 of each year, regardless of color on the numbers or if they are on the Airstream.

There are many WBCCI members who choose, for various reasons, not to display any numbers on their Airstream. I, on the other hand, have both my WBCCI number (red) and my Air Forums number (blue) on Lucy.

I feel that an Airstream travel trailer just doesn't look authentic without the big red numbers.

When I joined WBCCI, I requested spec. numbers. I had my AIR numbers, so My WBCCI and AIR numbers are the same. I went to my local sign shop and had my numbers made. What I chose, was material that looked like a "waving" flag; RED WHITE AND BLUE.
I now display the AMERICAN FLAG and both my numbers all the time

I've seen several of the folks with their WBCCI numbers on a plaque, and they display them while camping, and set them inside or in storage compartment while traveling. Maybe that way someone with membership book won't be able to look you up and know that you're away from home.
Thanks, Derek

Which would be true, if I use the same number. But since the color is different, I can use any number or letter I want.....
