No, there was only one O13 caravan. It happened in 1980, so a 1980 membership directory would not show who participated, because it was published early in the year before the caravan happened. The 1981 (and any thereafter) directory should show who participated (except for any members that did not renew with the club). A current directory may still show a few O13 participcants if they are still in the club, but it is possible that no participants are still in the club. Looking at the 1981 Directory is thus the best way to determine who participated. Unfortunately, that is a time consuming task to read each member entry and check for caravan #'s. Checking just the "White's" was "doable" for me. It just happened that I have a 1981 directory. I only have a few. My next one is 1988.

One other means to determine if a Mr. White participated would be to contact WBCCI directly (contact Cindy Reed via the WBCCI.org web site). They may have records of who participated on each of the National and Overseas caravans (but probably not the smaller one's). Good luck!

Thanks for going to the trouble- and thanks for the info! I contacted the WBCCI a couple days ago and got an acknowledgement of the email- waiting for an answer now. Sorry to be troubling with a non-AS vehicle- but it will haul the Eriba, if not a Bambi yet. Thanks again!
ollie
btw- I saw the Touareg brochure with th AS-pulling art inside. I also heard that VW was getting in trouble because the Toureg couldn't actually pull a full-sized 'stream.... (thinking at this point that I met the guy who did the bicycle-pull stunt- sorry forgot his name ) I'm sure Touaregs must be more than capable. At any rate, I am a grad student and there is no way I'm going to afford a Touareg. Besides which, I prefer to be able to repair my own cars when possible- and I'm not that much of a comfort hound lol. The Vanagon is an aircooled, 1600cc automatic right now. At some point we may either look into buying another (Synchro Westy?) or converting it to a turbodiesel (around 190 or 200hp and plenty of torque). We have a house now, but depending on what career I end up with, I would like to full-time/live like Chris Stevens on Northern Exposure

But this got me to thinking that it would be a good idea to expand on my existing archive of directories.I have most of the directories from 1984-2006.I use these directories to help Forum members who have a question on a little history of 'the big red numbers' on their coaches.Many Forum members can attest to this and I really enjoy helping out whenever I can.I also would like to compile another complete or near complete set of directories so the WBCCI history is not lost.

So...If there are any Forum members who have or know of someone who has any old WBCCI directories,I am interested.

I would certainly cover any shipping costs incurred by the member and the directories would be going to 'a good home'.I would continue to use these directories to answer any Forum member requests and at the same time help preserve a little piece of WBCCI history.
Mike,

Here is one of the best covers, the 1976 WBCCI Directory.

Pee Wee,

I have seen that directory several times and would have to say it is the best cover.As you know,1976 was the bi-centennial year and the WBCCI was at or close to it's highest membership totals.
The International was held in Louisville KY and the rally attendance was 4493 trailers.The largest ever.
Thanks for posting the cover on this thread.

Streamer, you are probably the source for the info I am looking for. I am restoring a 67 Overlander that I purchased near my home in Georgia. The couple that owned the unit passed away in the past couple of years and their son sold the trailer to me. While working on it at night under the worklights, I noticed the faded remnants of an old WBCCI number. The number is 27049! I hope you can look this number up and give me some sort of history on this trailer. I am fairly certain that I am the third owner. The folks that had it before me had a last name of Davis and lived in Lawrenceville, GA. They bought the camper sometime around 1984 (approx). I wonder if I could aquire this number through my application if it is not taken. Thanks for your help!

Sean,

Of the 40-50 requests I've had to provide some WBCCI number history,this is the first number that I do not have a listing for in any of my directories .An alternate source I have lists that number from the state of South Carolina but that is all the info I have.
The number should be available upon request(small surcharge required I believe) from Home Office.I would suggest contacting Jodi Morris at (937)596-5211 or by email to JMorris@wbcci.org
Some other forum member may have a WBCCI directory in the mid-seventies which should have 27049 listed.
Sorry I could not be of any help.I'm still looking for directories in the seventies myself for requests just like yours.

Good luck in your search.

Mike,

Good morning, or in your case good afternoon.

The Club Headquarters needs to computerize all directories. There are many ways to do this. Hire temps, get volunteers from the Club to visit JC and spend a few days inputing, or use any spare time of staff or even Airstream employees on a rotating basis. THe selection of personnel, of course, are several ways to accomplish the goal, but no way a final solution.

Starting with the first directory. You might format it this way.

Year
Trailer Number
Club Member's Name
Address
State, Provience
Country of Residence

There will be repetition. If you were a member for 30 years your will have 30 enteries. But the history of the trailer will be entact for 30 years.

Sooner or later the Club and Membership will need to address this. It is too valuable not to have, and so necessary for the Club's membership.

Again just rambling and talking...

Pee Wee

All they need to do is create a database with a one to many relationship (i.e., one name/address/etc. to many -- for each year of membership). Then the database can be used to print labels, directories, historical reports, special offers based on yr/model, etc.

I'm available at $60/hr to build this for them.

with all the volunteers and the expertise in here as well as the available information in the form of past directories why do we have to look to Jackson center? It seems like something perfectly doable with the hands already on board.

More Karma coming your way as soon as I spread it around a little. I hope the readers of this thread realize that Mike is exhibiting true Airstream spirit. I have some numbers lurking on my trailer. I know who they belong to now, but not how they got there originally. My trailer changed hand many times in one family and according to the MVA I am the seventh owner in Maryland. Before that, it was in Virginia. The ghost numbers are 10183.
