Airstream ID Numbers

We just purchased a 1972 Tradewind and we are so excited for the opportunities to fix it up and make it our home away from home. I notices our trailer does not have the Big read numbers that I have seen on so many trailers, anyone know why? The roof looks original and it does not appear to have been painted. Did they not always put number so the trailers? What do the number represent and is it a good idea to add them? Thanks in advance for any comments.

Welcome to the forums!

Those are membership numbers for the WBCCI. More information about the club can be found here: WBCCI.org

The big red numbers above the window on the front and rear of trailers is membership numbers. The club is the WBCCI, the Wally Byam Caravan Club International. Wally Byam was the inventor of the Airstream trailer. Your trailer has never likely been in the club, or a ghost image of numbers would appear there.

We also have a few rallies that are near to you. We have a "Can Opener" rally the first of January at Topsail Hill Preserve state Park, and we have a "falluminum" fall rally in Hiawassee, Ga in Oct this year. We also have a spring rally at Hiawassee called the "springstream rally". Check for dates on the rally schedule at the left in the column, "quick links".

Welcome from the Florida Panhandle

Welcome to the Forums. Were glad to have you with us.

Even though they are members of the WBCCI, some people choose not to display the big red numbers on their Airstream.
