Wally Byam Caravan Club International

Wallace Merle "Wally" Byam, (1896-1962) was one of the pioneer manufacturers of the travel trailer. He founded the company, Airstream Inc. From the 1930s until his death in 1962, Byam was a leader in developing both a romance and ethusiasm associated with the automobile and recreational vehicle culture as well as product features as the United States became increasingly focused on highways and automobile travel.

Welcome to the forums!

WBCCI stands for Wally Byam Caravan Club, International.

For further information, see the WBCCI web site http://www.wbcci.org/ and the extensive food fights in the WBCCI section of AirForums.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

Welcome to the Forums. We're glad to have you with us. Others have already posted what WBCCI stands for, The big red numbers on both ends of an Airstream are the owners' membership number in WBCCI.

Each red star represents 5 years of membership in the club.

Get in touch with the office at Jackson Center and they will send them to you. I picked mine up in Bozeman.

Bill is correct. I contacted Deb Sailor at HQ and it arrived a few days later. There is no charge for the stars.
