Question What are the numbers on top

Can someone tell the newcomer what the numbers are on top of the airstream trailers and is it on the motorhomes too?

If you are referring to the big red numbers,they signify that at one time a previous owner of the coach was a member of WBCCI(Wally Byam Caravan Club International).Airstream Motorhomes could also have numbers on them.

Is it true, that I can keep the original WCBBI number? I heard the number was assigned to the trailer. My number is 1805. I would love to keep it.

Please let me know.

Go to the following web page and contact them. They can tell you if the number is still available. Lower numbers like yours are very desireable and if not active for two years are given out to new applicants.

http://www.wbcci.org/

Good Luck

The number is assigned to the member not the trailer.The number 1805 is listed as active in the 2006 directory.

If the numbers have not be assigned to another member you can have them, that's what I did.

I don't have my WCBBI book handy to look your numbers but I sure another Forum member will check it out for you. Than it's a matter of calling the WBCCI to make sure and then make a few membership choices.

Hope this helps!

Michael

The membership directory has a numerical listing in the back of the book making it very quick to look up a particular number.Calling WBCCI would be the only way to find out if #1805 is currently available.

Can I contact the 1805 owner and ask if he/she would sell me the number?

Presents in the book indicates they are still paying for membership. Likely bought a new trailer. Likely can not get this number but you should sellect a similar number which is not being used so you will not have to scrape off alot of numbers.

I would suggest calling WBCCI at (937) 596-5211 first to find out if #1805 is actually active or not.If it is active you may want to consider changing just 1 digit of the number by replacing the 5 with a 6.It looks like #1806 is available.If this doesn't seem like the way to go I would pose your question to the folks at WBCCI and see what they can suggest.Just my opinion,hope it helps a little.

Yes, you can call a current number's owner and ask if they will give you the rights to it. Just needs to go thru club HQ. We tried earlier this year for another number but someone beat us to the punch. We wanted 8888.

I spotted this group of silver tubes, and guess what? They are using red numbers just like the WBCCI! Looks like they are into quality control too.
