AS "pedigree" history from WBCCI...

I think WBCCI is missing out on a HUGE potential to provide "pedigree" history of each trailer that it has in it's database.
I know the numbers were assigned to owners rather than to trailers, but WBCCI could use the trailer serial numbers it has (that was used to document trailer-to-owner), and re-create a documented history of each trailer. People would actually pay money to know the previous owners (last) names, and where the trailer was located, as well as all of the documented rallies that the owners attended (hence the trailer "attended").
Too bad it's too much "work" for WBCCI to do this. Everyone I know wants to know the history of their AS.
WBCCI is "stepping over a dime to get to a nickel".
Maybe someone in Airforums has some "pull" with WBCCI, and could encourage them to consider this.

I recently stumbled upon an Airstream and wanted to get some more info on it. It has the WBCCI number 10375 on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also is there any way to find out from the number the year and model? I cant get close enough to get a serial number unfortunately.

Thanks again.

Looking for info on our WBCCI number of our '67 Caravel - please.

We purchased our "new" old trailer last May in Illinois. It has the ghost number 216. We were told it was owned by Mr. Mann of Mann's Airstream Dealership and he went on caravan trips.

Thank you for your help!

I talk with WBCCI HQ frequently and truly believe that they did not retain those records. I think the application forms are discarded as soon as the serial number is verified, so there is no ongoing record of Airstream serial numbers. Not to mention those of us that currently own or have owned several Airstreams. The serial number of record would only be the first one when one joined. Members are not required to provide updated serial numbers when they change Airstreams.

And as for caravan rosters, the club has not kept records for the majority of caravans run over the years. Given that they have run thousands of caravans, that would have been a big task.

The only significant caravan records are what is published after each members name in the annual membership directory. In this case, I have checked and no electronic version exists for years prior to the current year. The only way to check prior years is to search paper copies of the Membership Directory manually. I and a few others on this forum each have a selection of Membership Directories and we do look information up as our time permits.

Sorry. It may have been good to keep the records you suggest as the years went by, had they thought of it years ago, but there is no easy way to recreate that data at the current time.

As a fairly new Airstream owner, my husband and I just visited a rally and after a very warm welcome and meeting alot of great people, we are looking forward to joining the WBCCI.

Our 76 Caravanner is ghosted (much to our dissatisfaction) with #2828 and wondering if we could get the same number if we join? Or at least learn more about the history?

Any help is appreciated.

Unfortunately you will not be able to get 2828 as it is currently in use.

2828 was not used in 1976, but in 1978 it was assigned to Paul Schnarr from Westland MI. We can not tell if that was your trailer, as others may have also had that number over the years.

And the Camfields were last listed in the 1971 Directory, still in Sarasota, no caravans.
