Old WBCCI Directories

I was recently contacted by a Forum member by private email that he had just picked up some old WBCCI directories and wanted to know if I was interested in them.I responded back by email and then by private message that I was.Even though this member is online daily I did not receive a response.He must have had a change of heart.

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.

Red Stars

I have had several folks contact me (another today)inquiring what the red stars mean that are beside the 'big red numbers'.
A star is obtained for each 5 years of membership in the Wally Byam Caravan Club International (WBCCI).

I believe I just ran across two or three, not sure on the years or if the wife will be willing to part with them. She found them and is more into that type of thing. I'll let you know.

We have four directories. Two are for Pennsylvania only I believe 1973 and 1978. We also have a larger 1972 and 1978. Do you have these?

What a data base that would be! Can you imagine all the directories from the 50's to date with names numbers caravans and postions held in one great big fun data base? I only have them going back to the turn of the century and probably have lost a few of them.

Mike,
I have slowly been trying to do the same thing, except my directory collection seems to have far more holes than yours. If you run across any duplicates, I'd be more than happy to take them off your (or someone else's) hands for a nominal fee plus shipping. In fact, I will go so far as to say that I am interested in any old Airstream or WBCCI documentation": books, pamphlets, video's, etc.

Thanks Joe,I'll let you know.If I get any duplicates,I'll send them to you.It's been a little slow getting any responses.I know they are out there.Unfortunately,some people (none who have posted on this thread)seem to see this as a money making issue and not as a history preservation venture.

WBCCI Number search

I am a new member to this forum and I am looking for an older Airstream to renovate for our travels. I drive by a seemingly abandonded house and 60's vintage trailer on a daily basis and I would like to track down the owner to discuss purchasing it from them. I thought maybe I could locate someone by the "Big Red Numbers" on the Trailer, #23829. Is it possible to have someone look that up for me? Should I try to search by Serial # instead?

Thanks for any information. We live in NH and would love any other suggestions on where to locate a 60-70's, 26-28 foot Airstream.

Hi elijah.I'll help you with the "Big Red Numbers" part of your question.The most recent directory listing I can find for #23829 is from 1990.Don't know if this will help you or not but I will pm you the details.
