Hi I think you read the ? Mark as a 7. Looking for 17329 if you have any information. It is the only set of numbers and is burned onto skin. I suspect it was the original owner circa 1970. Thanks

Grand and Dwight -
The older number on mine appears to be 1054 - not 1057 - was wondering about the 1054 number. - Thanks!

I have a 1963 TradeWind. It has number 7813 covered with 29615. Can someone provide me history about owners and caravans? It does bare a red rectangle Wally Byam CARAVAN plate. Lastly, please let me know if either number is available as I am interested in the WBCCI.

Thanks,
-tony

Go to WBCCI.org to get the telephone number at Jackson Center and talk to the lady in charge of numbers. You can download application forms from the site or join on line. I think the preferable way is to use the site to locate the contact person at the unit that is closest to you and send the application there. The 1966 directory has 7813 assigned to to Robert and Jeanie Gray from Clearfield, PA. 29615 was not issued until the mid 1970's and was issued to Daniel and Ruth Stitt from Valenca, PA in 1976. No caravans listed but if it had a Wally caravan sticker on it, it clearly went on one of the early caravans.

Just to let everybody know, we are working on being able to search if a number is currently available for prospective members. Having number history is a possibility for the future but in order to make that a success, we would have to digitize lots of data so we could make it searchable. Anybody have in spreadsheet form all of the years membership data?

Yesterday I removed the last evidence of the old red numbers on our AS. Before it fades from my memory, I should finally ask the good folks on the forum what names were associated with the number. Ours is a '72 Ambassador with the number 26164. Can anyone tell me who this trailer belonged to?

Not necessarily true. While the rectangular Wally Byam Caravan plaque (and later sticker) began in the 1950's as something used on caravans, by the early 1960's they were nothing more than a symbol of club membership.

I have seen several early 60's Airstreams and maybe even a late 50's Airstream or two with the plaque or remnants of the sticker with no caravan history as documented in club Membership Directories.

The rectangular plaque/sticker was retired as a club symbol in favor of the round Wally Byam Caravan Club decal in about 1963 - not sure the exact date they stopped being used, but I have seen them on few 1963 Airstreams (but most 1963's don't seem to have them). They were much more common on 1962 and prior Airstreams. I do not think I have ever seen evidence of an original one on a 1964 Airstream.

I found the Potters in the 1973 Directory. That means they joined no later than 1972. I do not have a 1972 Directory, but since the '73 Directory ends with 27833 it is likely that this is the first year they are listed.

Thank you. That is the name written in the owners manual and on the Certificate of purchase. Funny the dealer it came from was in Colorado Springs, Co.

looking for Caravan # history

We have a 68 Tradewind we have owned since 1994. We bought it from the original owners, Robert and Mercedes Martin, Cincinnati Chapter, and we were able to keep the original number 21931.
I never thought to research where she had been till now. They were members probably from 68-69 thru 93-94. I'm just interested if there are any Caravan numbers listed in the membership books, that they attended. Any help would be Alumifying !!!!!!!!

No national caravans for the Martins as of 1986. They are not listed in the 1989 directory.
