WBCCI Numbers, Front or Back or Both?

I am not a member of WBCCI but will probably join at some point. I am more or less just doing my own family trips now.

I want to have my trailer name and home location done with vinyl lettering on the rear of my trailer, basically in the same spot the WBCCI numbers go. Is that a problem, if I join WBCCI later can I just put that number on the front?

Thanks

Hi

Not sure of "rules" but it's your trailer and you buy the numbers so they are your's. Personally aside from the license plate I don't put any personal identifications on our trailer or truck. All that said, the directions we got with our numbers and the reorder to replace on on new trailer said top front and top rear of the trailer is where the numbers are supposed to go.

Hi from AZ. . . the WBCCI website has their protocol for numbers, but as Bud pointed out, it's your AS. I've seen them put all over the place, including windows. Some people say they don't put them on so that someone can't look you up in the directory, & then go to your house & rob you. I'll have to admit, that never even occurred to me ! ! ! I like having the numbers.. . .regards, Craig

No law says what you can put on your trailer. Many do not put up the numbers.

Many folks put them on a piece of Plexiglas/Acrylic sheet and hang them on suction cups when they get to the rally or event. (Front or front & back as you desire) Easy to put up and take down.

This is good way to temporarily display the numbers and not permanently affix them to the trailer. Many folks prefer not to permanently mark the trailer in these times we are in.

As stated many people do not put them on. I put them on front and back. As far as some not wanting to get robbed because someone looked up their numbers, paranoia will destroy ya'! That is one of the most stupid reasons I can imagine.

I say "both".
When you join, they send you 2 sets of numbers and 2 little round WBBCI stickers.
I put the WBCCI numbers front and rear and put the little medallions centered over the top of the numbers.
It is your trailer, and you are free to apply whatever you wish, but for me the red numbers are just part of having an Airstream. The red numbers, like the trailer, are iconic.

I have never heard of anyone having a theft problem with displaying WBCCI numbers. As far as identity goes your license plate is a public record any anyone can access it and find out where you live. On the display of WBCCI numbers, I find it convenient at rallies to also have the numbers displayed on the top of the front left and right side windows. Have you noticed how hard it is to find your Airstream in a long row of others? One problem though, on non-opening windows, if you keep the night shade down, the heat build up will cause those decals to curl up with age.

I never thought about identity theft via big red numbers. How could that number lead to one's identity?

WBCCI Numbers, Front or Back or Both?

One issue with numbers is if on for several years when removed they leave permanent marks. In my case I also have a website on my trailer thus it will have lots of imperfections if I ever sell it.

I like the numbers as it tends to bring folks together, one WBCCI member to another. And the license plate will give more information about the owner than any "non-governmental " logos, names, etc.

The registration info is very easy to obtain if one has devious plans.

If personal or website info is going on the trailer, this can go below the window, the WBCCI numbers where suggested.

We wear our numbers on the trailer; might as well, the clear coat is pretty rough anyway, including some ghost numbers. It's fun to spot an Airstream on the road, pull out the book, and see who it is.

Number location

Here one can see how, when a rear view camera is installed by the factory, the number location has to be modified from what the WBCCI suggest:

My Bambi II had ghost numbers. I was able to get them when I joined. Made putting the new numbers up easy.
