We use a plexiglass technique for our Bambi II.

I printed out my numbers in red on regular 8.5" x 11" paper -- one letter per page so the numbers are large. I then cut the numbers out and placed them, red side down, on a piece of plexiglass. I attached the numbers to the plexiglass by placing a sheet of transparent contact paper over the back of the plexiglass which sandwiched the numbers and holds them in place. To display them, I simply prop the numbers in either my front or back window when I need to display them.

The first weekend after we joined WBCCI, before we even got our numbers, we went to the Top of Georgia Airstream Park near Helen Georgia. This is owned by the Georgia Unit and will only accept WBCCI members (from any unit). We noticed that quite a few had mounted their numbers on plexiglas and used the suction cups to anchor them to the solar shade and to the gas tank covers. I guess this is another example of the "____ police" (insert your own experience) that permeates the club. I think every unit has one that polices something from proper flag etiquette to proper number display.

I have a 1968 22ft Safari with at least 2 layers of ""ghost" WBCCI numbers on it, didn't try to remove yet, not sure if I could figure out the numbers that actually go together, but I have a complete list of PO's to search by.

I have owned the Safari for 11years, but have decided to rest it this year to address the rear end sag that has developed over the last year and a half.

My recent addition to the "Fleet" is a 1982 turbo diesel 280 MH with "2689" Ghost numbers showing.

I am Interested in joining th WBCCI and have a few questions.

Do the numbers travel with the owner or the Airstream?

Is 2689 available to activate for the MOHO?

If joining as a new member, do both the trailer and the MOHO need seperate numbers, or can they both share the same ones?

I will be using both in the future once the Safari and the 1954 Ford Panel Truck (TV) get their restorations finished.

Regards, ART

Hi Art,

WBCCI # 2689 for 2007 is in use by members located in IL.

You only need one membership for both Airstreams, meaning the same numbers are assigned to your rigs.

I *highly* recommend you join the New England Unit (NEU). Contact me for info. We are a progressive, fun loving WBCCI Unit. Be sure to check out USA Today in the next few weeks as they covered the first ever WBCCI Wedding Rally, hosted by the NEU. They tell us it will be a multi page spread.

Is there any benefit to look up old numbers from the 1968 safari?

is there a database available to try to figure out what the old numbers were? I do have a paperwork trail of po's.

So based on the reply I got the numbers belong to the member. Is this true?

if you drop out, the numbers must be recycled since my moho numbers were on a unit that has been in Fla since it was built, and not in Il, the po's are still in Fla..

regards, ART

Don't let that keep you from joining! That dilemma is easy enough to solve by using the plexiglass solution discussed in this thread.

There really isn't a database of old numbers. There are some forum members though who have old WBCCI directories who can look up numbers for you using name or number. The best way to get their attention is to start a separate thread on that topic.

The current directory lists that your numbers belong to another member so you won't be able to get those numbers. If a member drops out, the numbers eventually are recycled. If you want a specific number, you can call WBCCI and talk with them to see if a specific number is available. Their phone number can be found on the WBCCI.org website. Good luck!

When a member "drops out" (most often as a result of age, illness, or death) the number that was assigned to them is held inactive for two years. It is then available to be re-assigned. Sometimes it isn't actually re-assigned for quite some time and you can request it if it is available for exactly the same reason you mention. Often, the numbers are in tact on the trailer and getting them re-assigned to the new owner prevents the removal of the old numbers, leaving the ghost image, and applying new numbers over the ghost image of the old. It also preserves the history of the trailer and ties to the organization through the years and through the different owners. I like the idea.

WBBCI Numbers Display

How about putting the numbers on with a small piece of doubleface tape and then cover the area with 3M Scotchguard Paint Protection Film? I have not used this, but the Plexiglass sounds easy.The film would hold it in place as you go down the road.

I'm not sure what you mean. If you are talking about using this technique to stick the numbers on the trailer, you don't need to do all that extra work because the numbers have adhesive on the back already.

With the plexiglass technique, the piece of plexiglass is typically taken down and stored while on the road. Some folks use velcro to keep their plexiglass numbers visible in the inside of the window while traveling.

I should have looked at the numbers first.I thought the backing would stay with the number and basically you could put them in place and cover them with clear contact paper (3M Special Product).
The plexiglass idea win's. It is easier !
