Yes we know that - kind of silly rule - but a rule nevertheless.
People in the club know each other by name not number - when you are traveling down the road you see a number and then you look up that number to match against the name/member - whether you had one or two rigs with different numbers should not matter as you will still make it back to the same name in the directory.
Like listing caravan numbers beside peoples names. The number of people that have two "Useable" rigs would not slow the Directory process down.IMHO.
And for those who buy a new rig (and do not want to put numbers on the shell) and then decide to buy a vintage rig may wish to distinguis the rigs - and yet still be identified)
So for Florida we will have to travel with both - #1961 in the window and the old numbers petrified on the shell - and if anyone thinks we are crawling up on our rig in the freezing weather to remove them just because my rig number does not match my name hmmm
The number 14535 is technically still ours to release - and will be renewed next membership if all goes well this year with the retrofit of the 1961
. I also don't think we will be traveling to far with the Overlander which the number #1961 was originally intended.
Not bending the rules - just thinking outside the box - as the numbers mean nothing to us in regards to "generations" and we have no supertiscious numbers either - than the most logical to us was to keep the original number on the Globe Trotter to limit the shadow effect of new numbers and to go with the year of the coach on the Overlander as it never doned any numbers before.
I don't see what the big deal is - as it is the membership card that gets you in not your rig.
So what...are the big red number police going to be patrolling??? "license and big red numbers please mame" uh hm uh would this set do I just got them in the mail........and I have been sick then I broke my leg - and then the dog chewed one of the numbers before I could get them on......
....change is such a frightening thing.....
