Hi Bob,
#11465 was first assigned in 1964 which is very appropriate for a 1964 or early 1965 Airstream Safari. The first directory I have that lists #11465 is 1966, at which time that number was assigned to Warren and Jessie Leisinger of Gardena, CA, no caravans. There was no Scotty Leisinger listed in the 1966 Directory. Jessie Leisinger is lasted listed (alone) in the 1975 Directory, still in Gardena, CA and is credited for caravan 67 - Eastern Canada Summer 1969.

#11465 is unassigned in 1976 and I am missing the 1977 Directory, but it is reassigned to Bill and Joyce Stratton of Oklahoma City, OH in 1978. Bill and Joyce Stratton are last listed in the 2004 Directory, still in Oklahoma City. They are listed for caravans 226 - Eastern Canada Holiday 1995, N26I - Meandering the Californias 1997, and N29F - Florida Fantasy 2000. #11465 seems to have been unassigned since 2005, but I only spot checked a couple of years.

My guess would be that the Leisingers bought your Safari new and immediately joined WBCCI and eventually likely took it on the Eastern Canada Caravan. I would guess that most likely the Strattons did not own it, but it certainly is possible that they did. If so, it seems more likely that they owned it during their early years in the club (likely prior to their caravans).

That's all I got. Enjoy your Safari!

Thank you Joe , I believe the strattons would not have owned it , believe it stayed on the west coast , the previous two owners (neighbors) would make up the time between 1975 or so and when we purchased .

Thank you very much Joe

Hi there,

I have read the histories of some airstreams in this topic.
Wow, what great to hear for example that your trailer was in historical rallies in the sixties!

I'm very curious if there is something known about the history of our trailer.

We have a globetrotter from 64.
This has been for 40 years in america then gone via england to his current owners in the netherlands.

The wbcci # is 13463.

Hopefully there is something to tell about the roots!


Thanks!

Martijn

I didn't think I had numbers on the front of my Overlander. But I got up on the hitch and looked closely and made out the number 824 and the word Ontario which had been painted above it. The Overlander is a 1955 and had 3 sets of Ontario licence plates inside dating from 1957, 58 & 60. There is a Wally Byam CARAVAN plaque below the numbers so if anyone can tell me who this was registered to in the late 50's in Ontario Canada that would be cool.
Thanks
Brian

824 is not listed in the 1957 directory. However, #824 is listed in the 1960 Directory listed as C.E. & Kaye McFadden, 150 Beckwith St., Smith Falls, Ontario, Canada. They went on the 1957 Mexico Winter Caravan #11.

I have a listing in my 1967 directory of 13463 being owned by Jim and Marge Hollister. They owned a Beauty Salon in Clarksburg West Virginia. There are no caravans listed for them.

Hi, I have a 1971 overlander with number 109. I'm really curious about previous owners, and the origin of such a low number. Any help much appreciated.

In my 1972 Directory 109 was issued to Al and Anna Bakker from Jensen Beach, FL. No caravans are listed. In 1984 that number was assigned to Leroy and Florence Wallis from Portland, OR. He was the International 3rd VP at that time and was a life member.

I sure this low number has made the rounds and we do not know when the number was put on your 1972 trailer.

#109 was listed as Albert & Anna Bakker of Bufflalo, NY in 1955. They had moved to Jenson Beach, Fl by 1960 and are still listed at that address thru 1973. It is unkown if they actually owned your 1972 Airstream.
