Renee and Tim LaVelle are delighted to announce the fulfillment of a longtime dream - the purchase of an Airstream travel trailer.

She's a 1992 beauty, in great shape, with a graceful 29 foot figure and a beautiful set of rear twins. Our search took us from Washington State to Pahrump, Nevada to find our girl. From there she joined us in traveling across to Florida, up the East coast a bit and then through Nashville and the northern states back home to Mossyrock. Not a speck of trouble that wasn't brought on by an amateur owner! Luckily we purchased her from experienced and proud owners.

Now trying to figure out if the numbers in big black print on the back of the owners manual/binder (8303) are the numbers that we might consider replacing at the front top of the unit? AND, where to get those big red numbers. Appreciate any guidance on that and how to find the special hinges that allow the roadside table to fold out to double its size.

Welcome aboard! We have a very similar (if not the same) trailer. We've had it over 10 years now and find it very comfortable. Our toilet is on the curb side (same side as the trailer door). There was also a mirror image floor plan available with the toilet on the street side. We love the living area - you could hold a dance party in there although the eating/table arrangement is nil without opening one of the fold-out tables.

The numbers on the Airstream owners manual/binder are likely the stock number when the trailer was on the sales lot, or even part of the VIN - I don't think those have anything to do with WBCCI or any club. But if you like the number... by all means make them your club number if they're available from WBCCI.

Contact WBCCI in Jackson Center, OH to determine if that number is available.

See Ya Down The Road!

Thanks for the reply. I was a clown way back in high school and I guess some of that sticks with you. Appreciate the info on the red numbers...never knew that they were club membership type things.

I'll learn how to post pictures and get some on.

Lucius and Danielle, Thanks for the info. We hope to have this unit for years and years to come. We agree about the roominess and I was especially happy with the weight. We use a Ford F-150 Lariat (5.4 Liter) to pull and I was worried that I might not have enough power but kin a 8000 mile trip right after purchase, everything went great. See you on the road.

WBCCI is A great organization even if you never travel with a group on a caravan. There is an extensive knowledge base in the friends you just haven't met yet. Many have had the same problems, so can offer great ideas to help you. Call a local chapter contact, they will invite you to meet the group, and demonstrate in person the advantage of being members.
