My 1965 and 1968 Directories list Benard Woodruff, from Michigan, as the owner of 9872 in that year. We can not say that he owned a Caravel at some point. It is likely that he did not and there were no caravans listed after their names. Less that 10% of our current members participate in Nationally numbered caravans.

Thanks Streamer23. The info for 2643 obviously fits but I'll have to look closer at the other number. Maybe the number belongs to another organization? Even though it wasn't involved in any rallies, (that would have been cool), its fantastic having people like yourself helping with the history of these American icons.

Hello! I am new here to this forum. I just purchased a 1964 Aristream Trade Wind. I began doing some research that led me here to this forum. Learning any information about my new trailer is very interesting to me! I can see two ghost images of 2 WBCCI stickers and numbers that overlap. The original number is 16690, and the overlap number is 27299. I couldn't find a database anywhere online of the numbers. If you could look them up I would greatly appreciate it!

Hi
Here is what I found

#27299
This number is not listed is any of my directories.I don't have any directories from the 1970's.It was issued around 1973 to someone in North Carolina.

#16690
1968-1985
James & Dorothy Campbell
Winston-Salem NC

Caravans listed
#52-Mexico-Winter 1967
#56-Western Mexico-Winter 1968
#67-Eastern Canada-Summer-1969

Not much but hope it helps.

Someone with a directory in the 1970's may be able to give you a little more info on #27299

Wow! Thank you for the info! That is awesome. It makes sense, because there is the original dealer decal on the side that is a dealer in North Carolina.

#16690 was first assigned in 1966, but would have first been listed in the 1967 Directory (membership as of 12/31/1966). Unfortunately I don't have a 1967 Directory, but assume it would be assigned to the Campbells since they are listed for a 1967 caravan.

#27299 was first assigned in 1972 and first appears in the 1973 Directory, when it was assigned to Charles and Hazel McDowell of High Point, NC. The McDowells are last listed in the 1981 Directory, still in High Point NC, no caravans.

I would thus speculate that your '64 Tradewind was originally owned by the Campbells and likely they sold it to the McDowells in about 1972, at which time I assume the McDowells joined WBCCI and the Campbells may have upgraded to a newer Airstream. It's great that your Tradewind has some caravan history. Enjoy it!
