The next page shown is the front page of the 2000 series of WBCCI numbers. On the left hand side of the page going vertically down (for the members I have not seen) is the last state or province each specific member number was listed in the WBCCI directory. These are written in pencil. For example #2004 is Colorado (CO), #2005 is Florida (FL), #2006 is Montana (MT) and so on. For the trailers I have seen, a more descriptive entry is required. These are done in pen. Take WBCCI #2000 as an example. The LY to the left of the number signifies it was a landyacht. To the right of the number is the license plate number (tag) RXY-74Y, then the landyacht abbreviation, state of residence( Texas) and when I saw it...89I, 90I and 96Q. I have my own code for this which I have listed in my index pages. An (I) following the year always signifies an International Rally. In this case, for WBCCI #2000, I have seen it at the 1989 Int'l in Bozeman MT and the 1990 Int'l in Notre Dame IN. The 1996Q means I have also seen this member in Banff National Park on July 8th to 10th 1996. For trailer #2001,you can see it is from New Jersey and the tow vehicle tag was EHJ-23C and the trailer tag was TAB-2404 and I saw it in 1994I, meaning the 1994 Int'l Rally.

Some trailers have been seen on many occasions. I only have so much space on my page so the multiple International sightings was developed. This is the case with WBCCI #2002 from Ohio. I have seen it at 5 WBCCI Internationals (5 INT) As stated before LY in the column stands for landyacht, MH for motorhome, B190 for a B190 van, ARG for an argosy trailer and INT for the Airstream Integrity th wheel.

These pages are the bulk of my listings. Each thousand, for example 2000-2999, comprises of 30 pages (1000 numbers). As much as I strive for accuracy, in the case of the tag numbers, this is not always possible. I may have seen the trailer when traveling the opposite direction on the highway, in someone's yard,or in a private campground and so on. In these cases I take similar tag numbers from that state and use those to keep the LOOK of the pages satisfactory. But I can assure you all the units listed as one's I have seen ...I HAVE SEEN THE UNIT OR MET THE MEMBER. Keep in mind that a lot of members don't put the red WBCCI numbers on their rigs anymore.
