Possibly NOVA is Nova Scotia?
Or Northern Virginia?
So NOVA is a particular unit like Mississippi Unit?

Dear M.Hony,

8K+ posts! If you don't know what NOVA is, I haven't been doing my job very well! PSST, It's an acronym.

I invite you and others to visit www.campnova.com to learn more about one of the many terrific WBCCI units.

Red letter question

Before joining WBCCI we wondered about the big red letters, and, frankly, found them unattractive. Now, we find them both fun and useful. At rest stops, enroute, etc. it is pleasant to identify other ASers, and, if one desires, to make communication. There is a certain fellowship among RVers (at their best) although there are a few pickles in the jar. Other travelers are an excellent source of information re good stops, interesting sites, etc.....especially ones otherwise not advertised nor generally known. Some parks and vendors offer special prices or treatment to club members.

Well said. Could not agree more.
It might be nice to have an alternate to the red numbers that would still allow for member identification without defacing ones trailer. I see some people put the numbers on the window but it's still the huge big numbers.
Anyone got any ideas?

If you go to some place like FastSigns, you can get removable and reusable cling-film signs made up with big red numbers and a copy of the WBCCI roundel. Apply them when you go to a rally or on a caravan, remove them otherwise.

As I was driving home from AZ the other day, I met a few airstreams and just thought it would be fun to have the ability to take their numbers and send them a quick text to say hello....

When it first crossed my mind, I thought its just not possible. But then I remembered that text messages don't just work when you have the person phone number that will also work if you have an email. So if all WBCCI members were assigned an airstream email address that they put into their phones, it would work.

So if a member had an member number of 4589, their email could be "4589@wbcci.org" As a member of WBCCI I would know that everyones email was configure like that so when I met them on a highway, I could just take their member number down and send then a quick text to say hello. If they were members who were interested in communication, they would have their WBCCI number configured in their phone and answer me, if not i'm out nothing. It's sort of like flashing ones lights to an airstream - sometimes you get a response some times you don't.

Anyway, It's just food for thought.....

Interesting. This would also allow for the numbers to be a bit smaller so they look a bit more attractive. Wonder if this film would stay on with wind at highway speed?

If they cling, why not just stick them onto the inside of the windows 😃

From personal experience my answer is yes - these cling sheets do stay on at highway speeds. Also from personal experience, follow Protag's advice - remove if not using. I have ugly corrosion on both end caps from leaving these on an entire season. Not sure why the reaction, but it's not something you just buff out. Only fix is to replace the aluminum - or - as I hope to do in the future, cover with some awesome aluminum patches which I am designing as we speak 😀

Being a member of both the Forum and WBCCI, I was able to get the SAME number for both clubs. Not wanting to display both red and blue, I went to my local sign shop and selected "OLD GLORY" to ave my numbers cut from.
When I showed up at a Wally rally,I was son questioned of my choice. The comment was; "so you are one of them" , yes, I am.
Proud to be an American.

This is actually a great idea! I especially would like it if a registry could be included to forward my 24260@wbcci.net email to my dan@bihary.com address. This is a member benefit that should be implemented. Can you hear me ECC committee members?

I went to a Fast Signs, got a panel that was Aluminized on one size that I had them cut to size. We had them apply numbers and I applied the round Wally emblem. We put it in the window when we are at rallies. Store it in the rig when we are not. That has worked for us.
I should add tgat wd have had several trailers that we put numbers on, we devised this system when we went to an Airstream Motorhome, but it would have worked for a trailer too.

We put the WBCCI red numbers and roundel on two pieces of plexiglas with suction cups for the 23D front and rear. We may never use them as the local rallies are informal in nature.

We had them attached to the Classic skin for International last year.

"When it first crossed my mind, I thought its just not possible. But then I remembered that text messages don't just work when you have the person phone number that will also work if you have an email. So if all WBCCI members were assigned an airstream email address that they put into their phones, it would work." ARRL does this. If you know someone's call sign you can send them and email via ARRL. Mine, for example, is kb0zke@arrl.org. The email is automatically forwarded to your regular email account, so if you are using the edress provided by your Internet provider and change your provider all you have to do is change where ARRL sends your email.

Don't know how to set up such a service, but I would assume that it is fairly easy and inexpensive to do.
