Hi all, I'm restoring a 1957 22" Custom # 27197. I live in Germany, and I would be glad to get in contact to its original owner.
Thanks in advance
Best Regards,
Lorenz H. Weiss

#29779 was first assigned in late 1974 (as noted in the 1975 WBCCI Membership Directory) to Ed and Toni Rezach of Bridge Port, NE. The Rezach's are last listed in the 1978 WBCCI Directory, then in La Place, LA, no caravans.

I spot checked several years from 1979 to about 2005 and did not see #29779 ever being reassigned, but I suppose it could have been assigned for a short time between the years I did check. It would therefore seem most likely that the Rezach's did own your 1965 Sovereign.

The #73721 is not a WBCCI number. WBCCI never assigned numbers that high. I cannot guess what that # is other than perhaps an actual street address if your Sovereign was ever semi-permanently parked in a mobile home park. But that's just a wild guess.

In any case, enjoy your Sovereign!

61 tradewind

I have had my 61 Tradewind for about 15 years but do not know any of its history. It had number 8374 on it before I polished it. Do you see info about it? Thank you for the help.

The 1968 Directory list 8374 as belonging to Warren and Ruth Greenway living in Vranada, CA. There are no caravans listed.

WBCCI number 8374

I can not find a Vranada, CA. Google suggested Granada, CA. There is a Granada Hills and El Granada.

In the AS I found an old membership card that matches the Greenway"s and they were members of the Palomar unit.

Do you know of any other directory listing for the unit?

Thank you for the help.

#8374 was first assigned in 1963 and it first listed in the 1964 Directory, at which time it was assigned to Warren and Ruth Greenway of Bainbridge Island, WA.

In 1968 the Greenways are listed in Granada Hills, CA.

By 1985 #8374 is just Warren Greenway in Saratoga, CA, no caravans.

By 1990, #8374 is listed as Warren and Gloria Greenway of San Jose, CA, no caravans.

#8374 is last listed for Warren and Gloria Greenway, still in San Jose, CA in 2004, several caravans. It is doubtful that your 1961 Tradewind was on any of those caravans. The number were just too faded suggesting the Greenways sold the trailer a long time ago and likely upgraded to something newer.

Thank you for all the research. It is great to learn of its travels before us. We bought it from a friend in 1999 and he had it for several years prior to that. I polished it a couple of years ago and the numbers are no longer visible. I did know you could move your number to another AS!

The person/couple rents the numbers from the club. The numbers are associated with the persons, not the trailer. I have three trailers, all of them have the same number on them. Sorry about my typo on Granada.

Now you're making me curious. My 55FC has ghost caravan stickers (round and rectangular) and number 4336. Any Info?

My directories do not go back that far. My 1967 directory shows 4336 as being used by Bruce and Grace Granger from Pontiac, MI. They show a 28 after their name, that would mean eastern Canada caravan in Summer 61. It could be they would have a 1955 trailer with them in 1961.

Even though the 1960 Directory lists 4359 as the last number, WBCC #4336 is not listed (skipped). This is not uncommon for this era. They probably didn't get all of their paperwork back in time for publication.

My next directory is 1966, and the Grangers are listed. Undoubtedly, they joined in 1959 or 1960.

Wow, what a fascinating read; I'd never put those directories down!
I'd really appreciate any info on my number - 27034
I *believe* it's a '69 18' Carvelle - if that helps.
It's been sitting for almost 20 years now, so I guess anything names or locations between 1968-1982 might be mine!!
