Question WBCCI Numbers question?

Hi Everyone -

Have posted a couple questions here in the hope that my husband and I will become the proud parents of a 1978 25ft Tradewind International this weekend (if all systems check out). I was searching the posts to find out about the numbers located above the end window and have discovered that they are old WBCCI numbers. The trailer we are looking at had them at one time as we can see the imprint of the first two numbers 1 & 3.

Was wondering for those of you who are restoring your AS, do you also put the numbers back on? Are these numbers given to the trailer "for life" or were they a number given to use while an annual fee was paid by the owner?

Thanks in advance for giving us "newbies" a way to see our dream of becoming an Airstream "parent" a reality.

Those numbers are given to you when you join the club. I just bought my AS, and the owner had two trailers, both with his number on them, the club logo and stars indicating how long they had been in the club (20 years). Of course he took them off before I came to pick it up. Now when I join the club I'll put my numbers on, and when other club members see us in a park or on the road, they can look up our number in the club book, and find out where we're from and who we are. Kind of cool, really.

Good luck, I hope you get your airstream!

Thumbs up Suggestion...

If the old numbers have left any discoloration on the trailer, you may want to request the same or similar numbers when joining the WBCCI. If for example there was a "3" you could request an "8" to take it's place, it'll hide the old "3's" shadow. As long as the original number isn't in use, you can usually get special requests accommodated.

The membership numbers are assigned to the person even if you change trailers along the way. As Stephanie stated, if you have multiple trailers, they would all have the same membership number on them.
