We’ve got ourselves a set of twins: 2019 Ram 2500 Delmonico Red & 27’ Globtrotter
We do indeed have a set of twins. When I hook up next time I'll send a picture!

Congrats on joining the club. What unit do you belong to?

And your numbers look great!

I agree wholeheartedly. The fun and comradery through the club are the best parts of owning an Airstream in my opinion. Weíve made a lot of new friends and right now are on our way to our first caravan.

It's official...

It was fun putting them on the Stream today, but also felt good becoming part of history with the WBCCI!

I guess it's just me, but I don't want big red numbers on my Airstream. If you join the club, do you HAVE to put them on? If so, can you put them on your propane cover?

You donít HAVE to put them on and many people have come up with interesting alternative solutions. Thereís a company that does a vinyl decal in the correct font - I unfortunately left mine on all season and that caused some filiform corrosion - using it for rallies only would have been a good idea I think. Others put them on plexiglass and apply with suction cups for rallies. Some post on their bumper, some on the propane tank cover - I think there are probably rules but no number police out there that Iím aware of.

I was a region president and my husband did not want the numbers on our trailer. Yikes! So he made a plexiglass square and put the numbers on there so we can put it up on the trailer when we are at an event and remove the plexiglass thing when we leave. it works just fine. And many members don't even do that much. It's definitely not required. We are working hard to make sure that few things, except civility and kindness and fun are REQUIRED in the club.

The VHB double sided tape used to attach solar panels to the roofs of these trailers might allow a stainless panel to be made and attached to the end cap if someone was worried about ghosting of the letters. The numbers could be put on this flat end cap piece of metal. That tape is mega strong!

Then you get a SST plate Ghost. If the Ghost bothers you, put the number on plexiglass and mount in or outside your windows, your choice.

If you have a coach with a ghost, get artwork printed on wrap material and cover the ghost.

Best yet, apply your numbers and roll. Ghosts make good patina and fodder for adult beverage consumption discussion.

What do you suspect caused the corrosion?

Donít know for sure...

I *think* dirt and water got in behind it during the season and with road vibration in travel it must have irritated the skin. I think if I had taken them off between trips and cleaned them and the end caps before application it might have helped.
