Wingfoot, we are signed up for the 2006 Alaska Caravan. We won't make the international this year or the Jackson Center as we will still be coming home from the Southwest Caravan when the homecoming is going on in Ohio and the international is just too much too soon for us. I would love to hear your comments about the Alaska when you return. I am looking forward to the international next year and we will join the Alaska when international is over.

Chas
WBCCI annual membership is $45.00. I paid $15.00 for two sets of numbers from a sign shop.

Capt'n Charlie did the sign shop numbers look like the Wally ones and what kind of quality? A lof of us would like to have a good set of numbers.
Do you go to local rallys? They are a lot of fun and you meet a lot of interesting people.
Region Rallys gives you a chance to see and meet people from all over your area. There are few places that you might want to go that these folks have not already been, and they are more than willing to share some of the hidden treasures that are not in the tour books.
The national caravans are a bargin. You get a chance to see things in this beautiful country of ours for a bargin basement cost. The planning work has already been done for you and all you have to do is show up.
Have you ever priced some of the other caravans outside of the WBCCI organization. I know ours aren't free but they are considerably less expensive than the others out there and we have a common thread.
I have had big red numbers 3485 for 5 years and hope to have them for many years to come.

I have to laugh at all the stories of everyone managing their BIG RED NUMBERS--laugh and appreciate our PO who gave us permission to transfer the number they had on their trailer to our new membership. Boy, was that easy for us Also, has anyone else noticed the stars-or ghosts of stars above the red numbers? Only when I was up high polishing this summer did I discover 4 shadows of stars. If my research is right, members received a star for each ten years of WBCCI membership. I guess the original owner of Gypsy purchased her new after years of ownership of other Airstreams. Endlessly interesting-even a quagmire of info connected to this obsession!

Tarheel, I took the numbers that WBCCI sent me to the sign shop and they made high quality vinyl numbers that look just like the ones from WBCCI. All on a sheet and spaced out and easy to put on.
Our Unit has 10 rallys a year plus the Region 3 and Internation and I do attend. We have 6 units that just completed the Maple Leaf Caravan. Several in the Big Bend Floriida Unit have been on caravans. American SW Adventure, Alyeska, The Great Land, American Civil War, Golf is lead by our own Larry and Carol Strong. So yes WBCCI carvans are a great bargin. We are trying to get on the stanby list for Alyeska 2006.

MaxandGeorgia the stars are for 5 years and I have seen some ( not many ) with 8 stars on them. We will be attending the Madi Gras rally this February then leave there and head on down to the Florida State. We will also be at Region 3 in Winston Salem and when that is over a group of us are heading for the Top of Georgia to spend a few days with some good folks.

One of my favorite members of the DenCO Unit is an 'Eight Star General'...Ray Deselms, he is over 90 years old. He attended the RMVAC Rally this year with his travelling companion Sparky Bryant...they have travelled together for over 40 years dating back to when their respective spouses were still alive. He pulls his '62 Overlander (original owner) with his B-Van, so they each have their own place to stay. Aren't they cute!?

I'm thinking about getting some Premium Vinyl numbers made, as suggested in this thread. Does anyone know what Font style WBCCI uses for these big red numbers?

Thanks.

I picked a less chunky font face than the supplied Airstream numbers. I have since had a lot of complements on how nice my numbers look. I think I just used the standard font that the vendor supplied in a red 6" size.

We were lucky and managed to get the same numbers that the original owners had on the rig (1967). Really, really lucky because the number had been dormant for quite a long, long time!

Give a thought to white numbers on the stone shield in front and window in back. They are easier to see (white on dark windows), and last much longer. I put 4 inch numbers on the window in front also, so they can be seen at rallies when the stone shield is up.

FYI, I just noticed an add in the February Blue Beret. "Cramer Graphics Announces Static Cling Window Signs. Place on inside window, rub down, remove any time, no-mess-no-fuss!"

Looks like the company is located in Kansas City Mo. 816-943-1312 cramergraf@kc.rr.com

Maybe the ticket for those of us who rather not have the numbers on the trailer. I might give them a call to see what a couple of sets would run. Might also be an alternative to forum decals assuming that the design would be visible from inside the window. I'll let you all know.

Regards,

Jack

Hi John,

Those red #s on your 22' CCD AS look good. I guess they don't have to match exactly, just close enough.

What FIS were you in?
