Big Red Numbers

Thanks to those who found the WBCCI Registration #23829 info. I have made some preliminary inquiries and it may lead to some promising hints. We'll see, thanks again

Still looking

Just an update to this thread.Still looking for some old (pre-1984)directories to add to my collection.No luck yet.
If anyone is attending any WBCCI rallies in the future I would really appreciate it if you could ask around for me.

Just a suggestion, Mike... you might want to put a "Wanted" ad in the Blue Beret. I go out of my way to stop and speak to Airstreamers in campgrounds, rest and truck stops, and even on CB on the road when I can raise them, and I've yet to meet one who knew of this forum, much less what a forum is. Most sound like they can barely do email, and think that's all there is to the Internet.

Thanks Maurice for providing another option.

WBBCC numbers

I hope i listed that right! Are the numbers always red? We spotted an A/S behind a church in Midtown Tn on Sat. We drove around closer and it had 4 big blue numbers on it. They had a sewer pipe coming out of the side of it and an air conditioner shoved in one of the side windows. They were using old wood crates for steps. It looks like it is set up for someone to live in but there was no one around. It is a 70's Overlander, I know this because it looks just like ours. I believe it was a few years newer, ours is a 72. I am just curious as to who owns it. Can you tell me if I get those numbers?
Thanks,
Tammy

We just purchased a 72 Sovereign with the numbers 15754 on it. Or at least they used to be. I can still see where they were. It needs quite a bit of work and we are total rookies. But my husband is handy and looking forward to the challenge. We bought it from a woman who had inherited it from her mother and could tell us virtually nothing. I have ordered the service manual and owners manual. I was hoping if I could track the numbers maybe I could find someone who knew something of the history of the trailer. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi...

Well, I can be of a little help, but probably not too much.
I have two WBCCI Directories in my archives, one from 1973, and one from 1976.
These were my Grandfather's directories from back in the day, when he was an active Airstreamer and WBCCI member (#22425 1968-1976)

The number you are inquiring about (#15754) was issued to a Mr James M. Abbess, of Huntington, West Virginia, according to the 1973 WBCCI Directory.

Interestingly enough, though...by 1976, neither his name, or the number was listed. Hmmm.... either he let his membership lapse that year, or maybe he had already sold the trailer. A mystery on our hands....

I, too have a mystery of my own here ..in an effort to one day find my Grandfathers elusive 1969 23' Safari, it would have the "ghost numbers" (22425) on the trailer still... but no record of his VIN number exists in my archives, and the number was re-issued to a gentleman in New Hampshire in the very early 1980s. Soooooo.......kind of a "needle in a haystack" thing I have here....

Maybe you can check to see if this Mr. James Abbess' name appears in any later directories than 1976. call the WBCCI Headquarters in Jackson Center OH...they have most all the Directories going back to the late 1950s.

Unfortunately, this is all the help i can be. Hope it helps, even just a little bit!!!!

When it is my time, I want to go peacefully,
And in my sleep.....Just like my Grandfather....
Not screaming, kicking and in a state of panic,
like the other passengers in his car were......

commander31,

Yes, that little tidbit helps me alot! At least from a karma standpoint. You see, my husband and I are both from West Virginia. We have been hillbillies all our lives. When we moved to Florida, we said "How can we be HillBillies here? There are no hills!" So we decided we would just call ourselves SwampBillies instead. So it is so fitting that what appears to be the original owner was from back home in West Virginia also!

Mike........I'm interested in giving these to someone in the group to assemble a complete set for reference purposes. Sounds like you're that someone. PM me shipping info for the 68 & 70.
