The VAC could use them ...

Hi Terry:

The Vintage Airstream Club could use all the WBCCI Directories Streamer 23 has not requested. We are building a library of old Directories for research purposes. I have only been a member since 1999, so I don't have too many early Directories except for 1973 and 1974. I'll gladly reimburse you for all shipping costs to Denver, Colorado 80207. Please PM or email me for my complete mailing address. Thank you.

I have been trying to put together a set of directories, too. If neither streamer23 or Fred need some of them, I'd be happy to pay shipping for any that I need. If any are "left over", let me know and I'll see if I need them (probably do - my set has more holes than actual issues, especially before 1990).

Thanks, but 1989 is one of the few I actually have. Actually, 1981, 1988, and 1989 are the only ones I have before 1990. And now that I look at it, after 1990 is sparse, too. I have 1991, 1993, 1994, 1995, 2001, and 2004-5-6-7. As I said, more holes than copies. I am interested in anything I don't already have.

Update

A special post for a good deed done by a special forum member.


Today,I received in the mail a 1968,1970 and 1982 WBCCI directories from forum member n7bdl (Terry).I am truely grateful that you would take the time and effort to send them to me.It really means a lot as I've been trying to get these ones for years.Rest assured they will be put to good use and be treasured.It was a nice to receive them on my birthday.

This forum is such a special place and good deeds between forum members are commonplace.Thanks.

I have helped many forum members track some history for the 'big red numbers' on their trailers but I could only go back to 1984.
I now have the ability to track back even further,thanks to Terry.If anyone would like some more info don't hesitate to PM (Private Message) me.I enjoy doing it.

Ok, I curious....

streamer23.... I have a question in reference to value. I am NOT asking you to buy anything, but if I know someone that wants to sell a collection - what is a fair price? I explained that my knowledge on this was weak (at best) but that I had an interest in obtaining them. However, I felt that the price would be relative to age..pre 1950, 1970, etc. Even possibly condition, but as far as I am concerned my interest was to establish a "fair" price. I have a project I want to do for my new "red numbers".

I would also be willing to create an online database with the info per number, when first issued, registration info etc. I have several domain names available and would be more than happy to donate the use of the site.

If you wish you may PM me with the price guess. Thanks!!

We just bought and brought our '54 Flying Cloud back to Texas from Calif. It is a very sweet trailer w/ the ghost numbers 5025 on the front and back. Does anyone have a directory w/ that number in it? Does it correspond w/ a '54 FC?

The ghost number you are referring to is a remnant of a Wally Byam Caravan Club International(WBCCI) membership number.These numbers are specific to the members and not the trailers.
I could give part of the history I have of that number if you are interested.If you have any information on when the previous owner of your trailer was a member of WBCCI the information I would be giving you would be more pertinent.
Sounds like you do have a sweet trailer.

5025 is a currently active number. It is assigned to someone in Georgia. The numbers are assigned to members not trailers / MHs. If the member gets a new trailer, the numbers would go to that trailer. A member with several trailers would use the same number on all the trailers. It is possible that the person listed in the current directory may have owned your trailer at one time.

Well, I got out the two dusty old directories that I have had in the archives for over 30 yrs and found this out........

In the 1973 WBCCI Directory, there is no listing for #5025.
There is a #5024, and a #5026 listed, but that is all.

In the 1976 WBCCI Directory, under the #5025, there is a listing for a Mr John H. Brandt, of Shirley, Ark.

These are the only two old directories i have. You definitely need to find someone with a directory going back to the late fifties to have it do any good. All things considered, the best you will get will be a name, and an address.... I think it near impossible anyone would still be alive from back in those days.

Hope some of this helps...even a little bit!!

this is just great that people take the time to do this and help people out.

i really feel strongly that anyone that collects these really take the time to make the info available to the masses, glad it looks like this is happening.

is there anything like a online searchable database for this info, from either a good Samaritan like you guys or from the wbcci itself? i know one person mentioned starting one, a major undertaking in data entry, do you have the software and web programing abilities that would let you make a searchable database? i have made a few websites with a family member that program them and searchable databases, while fully possible take certain things that are vital. If there is continued interest in making an online site for this, maybe there can be a intelligent way to organize the data entry and maybe even share the work load with many folks

just a few thoughts
